TimberGrit — 30 Vector Wood Grain Textures

TimberGrit is a collection of high-resolution vector textures made from 15 photographs of wood grains in Marfa, Texas.

Available for sale in my Creative Market shop.

The kit comes with both a positive and negative of each wood grain — for a total of 30 textures in both Illustrator .AI and .EPS file formats (60 files in total).

Ranging from distressed to clean, the wood samples were captured at varying levels of zoom — some are detail shots while others are multiple boards shot from higher up. I captured different types of wood (pine, oak, walnut) to allow for a variety of grain types in the photographs. The wood textures were then carefully edited as high-contrast black and white images in order to convert them into high-quality vectors.

Each high-res vector wood grain texture is approximately 2500 pixels by 3800 pixels in size (which is 36” by 54”), and can be easily scaled up or down to fit the needs of your design project. The pack contains a mix of vertical and horizontal textures.

These textures are ideal for us in poster designs, spot illustrations, fine art prints, identity systems, pattern creation, web backgrounds and much more.

Make Good Print

It took me a while, but I finally made good on printing this illustration. The idea originated out of a minimal version that I created for a poster for my AIGA Austin Under the Radar talk a few months ago.

This illustrated, hand-pulled screen print features custom lettering of the phrase “Make Good” inside of an ornate hand that has a ribbon tied around the index finger. Choose between 8″ x 10″ ($20) or 5″ x 7″ ($12) sizes of this gold ink on 100# charcoal cover stock paper print.

Available for purchase in the Satchel & Sage shop.

Desert Garden Wood Art

Earlier this week, we announced a new addition to our line of Satchel & Sage screen-printed wood wall art — Desert Garden. Inspired by our recent trip to Marfa, Texas, this illustrated southwest desert landscape contains agave, prickly pear cactus, succulents, and red yucca. It was a true collaboration between Morgana and I, and we love how it turned out (and hope you do too).

Each 5.5″ wide by 11″ tall piece of 1/2″ thick pine is cut, sanded, and stained with an eco-friendly walnut finish. Next, we screen print the artwork on the front in white, our logo on the back, and mount brass hooks on the top to make it easy to hang and enjoy. We do all the work by hand in our home studio. Each piece is unique and a labor of love.
