Bittbox: Tutorials, Freebies, and More

If you like free brushes and tutorials, BittBox is a great place to start. In fact, their post today is a tutorial on how to make your own high-res brushes (it's quite easy and fun once you get the hang of it). Quite a bit (haha) of goodies out there to be had, so get to downloading!

New Link - Veer

I have no idea why I haven't thought to mention this before, but if you are looking for stock photos, or even just inspiration on your next project, head out to Veer and if nothing else, sign up for their fantastic paper catalog.

Yesterday afternoon, I was greeted with a box. In this box is a puzzle. And on the puzzle? A discount code for Veer! Talk about a brilliant marketing idea.

As a quick update: as luck would have it, I quickly found the center of the puzzle and the Veer code. Essentially, you get $100 in free merchandise for spending $500 in the store. Sadly, I won't be picking anything out of that dollar amount anytime soon...

As of this morning, The Purl District and The Purl District Blog are live. There are a couple of tweaks to be made, but overall, I'm pleased with the results. Be sure to visit and check out the goods.

Working On...

Why no posts recently? Well, I've been putting my creative energies into putting the finishing touches on a website project for a company called The Purl District. I'll post the real link soon (although I imagine some of you may be able to figure out the URL ahead of time). Here's a preview of the almost complete (in the sense that the client hasn't given final approval of it) home page:

I'm also coordinating with a possible client, discussing their new website. Samples once I get the go ahead on that project.
