I was designing an album for a client, and I wanted to make my own textures and backgrounds.
So I tried this method: converting your images into illustrations.
I really liked how they came out: there's a beautiful simplicity and quietness in them.
This one's my current desktop background.
I know, it looks like I'm cheating because I can't really draw much in real life. But it looks cool!
I just love the details in this one.
I think this is my personal favorite. It was a great background for an album spread layout.
