Texturemate now has over 1500 users signed up with the site! Thanks everyone for supporting texturemate and keeping it running! As always, your feedback is appreciated to help improve the site as it has over the last few years. I look forward to 2013 and what it will bring for texturemate.com.
Well, after a little downtime, texturemate is on a new dedicated server! The site's traffic has significantly increased lately and the host said it has to be upgraded immediately. I hope you notice that the site should be much faster! The upgraded hosting is a bit pricier but I think the ads on the site can cover it. I want to do what I can to keep texturemate a repository for free textures, free brushes, free patterns, free.... anything design related!
Hello, I am designR ;) I am a professional graphic artist and there can always use more brushes, patterns, and design resources. Therefore I love texturemate because everything is free! Awesome! In return, got any design questions? I can answer them! I am sure of that ;)
It's in it's infancy and still has a lot of polishing to do, but texturemate now has Forums. I figured that since we already have over 100 texturemate members, we should probably have a place for discussions and questions. Let me know if you have any feedback or suggestions!
Wow, texturemate already has over 1,000 Facebook Fans and 100 site users! I happened to notice this when uploading a new brush set today. Very cool! At this point, site users can submit links to their own websites or resources, submit their own guest resources, or ask design questions that I will try to answer. Thanks to everyone for the support!
Texturemate now has a blog view if you prefer just seeing the latest graphic design resources and tutorials in the order they are posted! I created this page due to some reader feedback where people wanted to see what the newest resource was, regardless of what it is! The blog view will update whenever a brush set, pattern set, texture pack, or article is posted. Let me know how you like it!

My name is Bill Scott; I'm an Electrical Engineer who dabbles as a photographer, graphic artist, web designer, and 3d modeler in my spare time. I created texturemate as my portal to share my own texture images, stock photographs, brushes and other resources I create with others online. I hope you enjoy!
