Arriving in May!


'Crumble. Crackle. Burn'

I just received my advanced copy of my first ever published book called 'Crumble. Crackle. Burn - 120 Stunning Textures for Design and Illustration'. If you'd like more information regarding this book coming out in May you can read my previous post about it here.

If you're attending the HOW Design Conference I'll be doing a book signing on Tuesday night June 12th at 5:30pm. If you buy a copy at the Conference you'll get a FREE set of my Keyboard-Characters™ as well and of course my autograph.


'Spread Illustration by Vonster'

Each spread showcases the raw texture on the left, information regarding it's source and location on the DVD. The right side of the spread shows an example usage of that texture. Below is several sample spreads I took pictures of so you can see how the layout of the interior looks.


'Spread Illustration by Linzie Hunter'


'Spread Illustration by Chris Parks'


'Spread Illustration by Alina Hiu-Fan Chau'


'DVD is inset into the back cover for easy storage and access.'

I am excited how it came out and I think other designers and illustrators will really enjoy using the textures in their own artwork.

Congratulations, Von!
It is always great to have your new personal project-products, and watch how they develope and evolve through time.

I love your work, and even though I've never met you I feel strangely proud - well done on publishing the book! I'll certainly be buying a copy here in the UK; it's just a pity I can't come to the signing

I work at F+W and have been seeing the cover for this book around the office now for months. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

I just gave you a shout on my blog. Hopefully, it will result in some sales for the book!

Thanks Von, for this great idea of a book. Love it!
