The True Grit Texture Supply goal is simple: create high-quality goods for the textural fiend.
EVERY PRODUCT HAS BEEN CAREFULLY DEVELOPED WITH A TONNE OF ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND A HEAVY FOCUS ON AUTHENTICITY, HAND-CRAFTED PROCESSES, EASE OF USE, RESOLUTION AND SLICK SUPPORT MATERIALS.
BASICALLY, WE JUST WANT TO MAKE TO A BUNCH OF INCREDIBLE TEXTURAL GOODS THAT SAVE YOU TIME WITHOUT THE NEED TO SELL A KIDNEY.
AND IF YOU DON'T DIG IT, IT'S FREE.
"Over the years I've never stopped searching for the perfect texture, brush or gritty technique to give my work that little somtethin' somethin'. Around 10 years ago I started experimenting with making my own after being regularly disappointed by what was on offer in the marketplace. I found a lot of resources either too amateur, wacky, retro or trend obsessed for my personal aesthetic. As a result I've built up a solid collection of custom textures, brushes and shortcuts along the way".
In 2015, Andrew created a hugely popular class for Skillshare, entitled True Grit: Handmade Textures & Halftones for Illustrators & Designers. With that, True Grit Texture Supply was born.
"Off the back of my Skillshare class, I had a tonne of requests to package up some of my resources for commercial release. Realising some of my textures and brushes were simply too good to keep to myself, I set the wheels in motion to make those and many newly created products available to you, the textural enthusiast".

Often working with a restricted colour palette Andrew’s work seeks to hint at the nostalgia and tactility of found art, whilst creating something completely new.
