I don’t know why, but I’ve been in a mood for background illustrations lately. Perhaps it’s because I feel like I haven’t produced any good background textures lately, and knowing how much of a perfectionist I am, it just kills my productivity. Hard to explain, really – I just do better work if I feel like I’m producing good things. So with that, here are six fresh new background images featuring an element I haven’t used before: smoke!

It was kind of an interesting experiment, as I’m not really comfortable doing “loose” illustrations. My comfort zone is most definitely within the bounds of straight edges and geometric patterns. Do you like? I’ll admit that I do, thank you very much. Perhaps I’ll do more in the coming weeks.

Yes, I do have larger versions of these background images. You can download them at my official online store.
