Watercolors in Use: Alex Cherry

Turquoise Flag-Tip

So to go along with the release of Watercolor Texture Set 2 at the Go Media Arsenal we’re highlighting Alex Cherry and his subtle use of the textures in some solid pieces. “Black Cloud” shows just how versatile these textures are – when desaturated and darkened they make great noire ink stained arms.

Check out this piece and the rest of Alex’s portfolio here

    Don't know if this is the right place to put it, but I picked up the new issue of Imagine FX (#32) today, and they've got a couple of your fonts on the disc—Goatbeard and Diffraction. Great fonts and I'm looking forward to using them on some projects.
