8 Colorful Grunge Textures + L&T News!

I spent my Saturday evening playing around in Photoshop and ended up with this set of eight colorful grunge textures. I made them by combining a couple of different grunge textures in various blending layers. I hope you guys find some good uses for them!

On a different note: I'm currently putting the finishing touches on the new Lost and Taken site design (well, it's more of a facelift and less of a complete overhaul). I'm reducing the number of advertisements on the site down to a single ad in the sidebar. I've also gotten a lot of emails about people wanting to share what they've created with my textures, so I'm adding a photo gallery where you guys can submit your designs and artworks that feature Lost and Taken textures. There will be lot's of other small changes and cosmetic tweaks as well, but they're all focused on making the site more usable and keeping the focus on the textures.

Click on the textures below to download the high-res version or download them all in a zip file at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
