How to use them

Well, you can either download the .ai file or the .psd file, then you can open them up in either Photoshop or Illustrator, then get designing. A lot of these will probably work best blending them into the background.

How to make them

I made these using a permanent marker on paper. To make your own:

  1. Use a permanent marker, paints, etc on paper
  2. Scan it in, open the image(s)
  3. Use the ‘live trace’ feature in Adobe Illustrator


To download .rar files you have to right-click the link and click save target as or save link as.
