Hello all, I'm really sorry it's been so long since my last post. I hope to get some more useful links and tutorials up soon but I've been so busy lately I've not had chance. I've added a few new projects to my portfolio section that have gone live recently and will be adding loads more soon.
Just wanted to add a quick note about a stripe generator I've recently come across. Although striped backgrounds can be an absolute mind frying disaster if done badly they do, occasionally, offer a nice texture if done subtly.
