Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Mulch Textures


30 Mar

OK, so many of the ‘textures’ we give away each week could easily double as stock photos, should a certain topic arise that matches one of our themes. This week’s collection of mulch and ground cover texture images is definitely one of those situations. Putting together an article on gardening? Maybe you’re knee deep in a project with an earthy flavour?

Whatever your situation, our collection of six high-resolution much textures could be just what you need to get that latest design project completed. As usual, Hosking Industries’ weekly Wicked Wednesday textures are FREE for personal and commercial use, however we do not permit the redistribution, resale or repackaging of our textures. Basically, don’t go passing them off as your own or we’ll shoot!

OK, so we scored some great fabric textures last week as we were shooting for the last round of Wicked Wednesday FREE high-res textures. So, we thought we’d give you another set of six free high-resolution fabric textures again this week. We’ve got some stained cloth toweling (it’s cool, the stains aren’t suspicious), asian-inspired cushion, lounge fabric, furry throw rug and more.

As usual, Hosking Industries texture images are FREE for personal and commercial use. However, NO redistribution or resale is permitted. You didn’t make them, so don’t go passing them off as your own.

Free Wallpapers: Action from Supernats 2010


10 Mar

Help yourself to a FREE wallpaper or three for your computer desktop. The resolution is fixed at 1280, but it should be OK for most of you lovely people.

The shots were taken at the 2010 Supernats event where we were covering the action for Street Machine magazine. They include an HQ Holden Monaro ripping an awesome powerskid, as well as a couple from the burnout pad including one of the “mad Turk’ himself, Ahmet.

If you’re more into imports, check out a couple of wallpapers we uploaded late last year of an S15 Silvia drifting at the same event. by CLICKING HERE.
