For many a show poster, I've used Nasty with excellent results.

I've made great use of Diesel and Nasty...
I love this style! Glad it gets some attention.

Recife's brushsets are the real treasure here. As far as I'm concerned, Photoshop is not installed until his brushes are safely loaded in the palette.

The fonts used to be on another site, do I remember right?

Save them wherever you want, craven_morhead, and then install them.

Huh. I'm surprised this hasn't been on MetaFilter yet.

I've used Selfish before.

Wow, how inspiring! And extra points for providing such nice fonts, I'm sure I'll find a use for them.

What are the brushes of?

I use PSP, so I'd have to hunt up the PS->PSP coverter again if I want to use the brushes.

Thanks, hama7, some of those fonts will come in handy.

They are "grunge" brushes, made from images & scans of found objects with distressed surfaces (you can make your own as well- just google "define brush").

I first discovered Recife's brushes & fonts in 2002, and the next very week was commissioned to create a logo for a nonprofit community arts organization. This is what I delivered:

Four years later & they're still using it!

One more try on that logo:

If it doesn't show up this time, just take my word for it:
It's real Grungy.

squalor I think the img tags are off temporarily while mathowie fixes some strange problem. Why don't you try an external link?

I have certainly used Selfish...I admit...I come clean LOL
