Hi and thanks for finding your way here. I started my creative life studying graphic design in 2005, when my budget was tight and I could not afford to pay lots of money for royalty-free images just to get good grades. As such, I came to rely on free stock as an invaluable resource in my projects.


In turn, I felt the need to build my own image bank and offer free stock as a way to give back. Here you will find my personal collection of free grunge textures, one of my favourite themes to reflect an irony of every day life where we can find beauty in imperfection.


In the case of my flags & signs, I also find the grunge textures add a nice touch of vintage quality... a bitter sweet sense of nostalgia from good times gone, but never forgotten. Sometimes designed with a conceptual message or tongue in cheek humour to keep things interesting :-)


That said, my images are free but not to be confused with public domain. Over the years, design has become an extremely expensive hobby and so I still need to retain copyright ownership on my images.


Effective April 2013, I have nevertheless decided to release my stock under a standard Creative Commons License - Attribution 3.0 Unported. This gives you a lot of freedom to use my work commercially as long as you credit and link back to my own website for free stock photos: www.freestock.ca
