Crumble Crackle Burn portrays the aesthetic beauty of an art book but the functionality of a valuable tool that professional designers and illustrators will use again and again. It features 60 photographic textures of natural, real-world surfaces along with corresponding examples of how they can be artistically applied in design and illustration projects. The companion DVD contains all 60 high-resolution texture images in 3 formats that are ready for professional use. Also included on the DVD are additonal bonus textures bringing the total to over 120.
Compiled by a professional for professionals, these organic textures are timeless in application and will quickly become a favorite resource that will spark the imagination, inspire creativity and infuse your art with an authentic, organic flair.
Each of the '60' textures featured in the book will come with the following hi-res images:

Some of my art using a texture called 'Wooden it be great'.
Also included in the book is a chapter I wrote on 'Texture Exploring' it even shows one of my first texture pictures going all the way back to 1985.
