Illustrator, Photoshop, Affinity and Procreate Brushes at Artifex Forge

Software Compatibility! Our Mid-century brush tool kit works with Adobe Illustrator CS1 to CC only. Get the Affinity Designer version HERE

Mid-Century artwork is instantly recognizable by it’s simple, undulating ink outlines, angular, irregular shapes, impossible perspective and naturalistic textures. It’s these characteristics that I’ve captured in this diverse Adobe Illustrator brush pack – it really shouts mid-century down to the last detail!

So, whether you want to create simple cartoon outline illustrations or rich, deeply textured children’s book artwork, this pack has the right tool for the job. It includes loads of classic and unusual ink outlines, pencil doodles, halftone and pastel shader brushes. I’ve also included a halftone repeat pattern texture for filling areas quickly with authentic print texture.

All vector brushes have been tested on a range of illustration styles to ensure the best functionality and aesthetics – take a look at the screen-shots to see for yourself.

All brushes are pattern vector brushes, which means you can use one brush to make a variety of stroke lengths and they don’t distort over long strokes.

The pack contains all of these fantastic components:

13 Ink outline brushes.
2 Ink wave brushes.
3 Ink dots and loop brushes.
3 Ink dash brushes.

5 Pencil doodle brushes.

If you are a tablet user, you’ll be pleased to know that a version of the brushes with pressure sensitivity enabled is included (please note that this feature only works in Adobe Illustrator CS5+).
