Last weekend my daughter Savannah and I spent Saturday morning texture exploring. Driving around the country side and downtown finding old buildings and facades and capturing the real-world textures digitally. It’s a fun way to explore and discover things all the while building a design resource you can use.
I’ve been texture exploring since art school back in 1985. I even wrote a book about textures called Crumble.Crackle.Burn, but the main reason I love textures is because they are timeless. They’ll never go out of style and it’s an authentic way to take digital art and bring some humanity into it.
