Great post! Thank you!!
I really, really, really need to start thinking cleaner thoughts.
nice dg. but the links are broken....at least for me. good thing i've seen them.
@ melchior: gimp can open .svg files. then you can save them as brushes.
you could also open them in inkscape to re-size them. export each as a .png, then convert them to brushes in gimp.
