Single Weight Line Art Lab

single-weight-line-art-brushes_Preview-1

Master the contemporary art style that’s featuring on top design blogs with this colossal resource pack!

Single weight line art (AKA Monoline) is a design trend that uses lines of one thickness to build stunning, geometric, patterned artwork. This beautifully balanced style is paradoxically simple and complex at the same time as it uses detailed patterns in large areas as if they were blocks of color and tone. Getting the balance right can be a tough challenge and this is where the Line Art Lab comes in:

I spent countless hours developing the brushes and patterns together so that they work in harmony, I’ve ensured that the range of resources is diverse and expansive so, you’ll always find the right tool for creating art in this decorative and intricate style, and the patterns have been graded into three tonal groups so you can use them to add depth to designs quickly and easily.

Mosaic Maker – Brushes & Patterns

Introducing a set of mosaic tile brushes 1600+ years in the making!

After a recent trip to Sicily, where I saw some stunning ancient Roman mosaics, it occurred to me that there was no tool which allowed Adobe Illustrator users to draw their own mosaic designs. On my return I therefore set about making this set of authentic tile brushes and patterns.

In this pack I’ve captured the irregular, chipped edges of the original Roman source material (c. 4th century AD) allowing you to create stunning designs and illustrations with a sense of antiquity. However, the pack isn’t just for adding a vintage look – as you’ll see from the screen-shots you can use them to bring a unique twist to contemporary designs too.
