Free Texture Friday – Bokeh

The holiday season brings a lot of joyful things to the world, one of my favorites: christmas lights. There's something incredibly nostalgic about them, they remind me of the cold days of winters' past. These bokeh textures were made by taking out of focus pictures of...

Free Texture Friday – Etched Stone

These etched stone textures were taken from an abandoned, century old schoolhouse located all by itself out in the country near where I live. I feel the carvings in the stone hold an incredible amount of history, and the children that made them are probably old, and...

Free Texture Friday – Old Books

There's a tiny bookstore near me that has an entire room full of late 19th and early 20th century books, each one typically costs less than a dollar or two. I could spend hours in there searching through the old novels discovering naturally worn paper textures. I also...

Free Texture Friday – Muddy Wall

Free Texture Friday – Cracked Wood

I shot this weeks free textures in two different spots: the ceiling of an old gazebo and a decades old shed I found behind a factory around here. I love the texture that peeling and cracked paint gives to wood, it shows so much wear and character....
