Most people associate alchemy with the philosophy and proto-science of transforming base metals such as iron into precious metals such as gold and silver. But it goes back a lot further than that, and there are other reasons why alchemists throughout the ages have obsessed over this arcane art. Alchemy is also believed to cure diseases and (most fancifully) lead to immortality. Can you imagine!
Alchemy as a philosophy has appealed to people throughout time. Immortality aside, don’t we all love the idea of being able to cure any disease? The gold thing is a nice material gain, sure, but the search for a healthier, longer life roots deeper in our collective consciousness and has done for centuries.
This has inspired my latest product, Alchemical, which you can find available now in my shop, at Creative Market, Design Bundles, The Hungry JPEG and Creative Fabrica. This product features many illustrated icons inspired by alchemy, plus a huge set of Photoshop brushes and ten gorgeous seamless patterns.
In This Set:

File Types & Software:
You will need access to Adobe Illustrator (or equivalent vector editing software) to edit the .ai, .pat and .eps files. You will need Adobe Photoshop to use the .abr brush file. The .pdf help files and .pngs should be available to everyone and where possible I’ve included these file types.
