Introducing Christi’s Comix Toolbox

Professional tools for illustration and comic artwork now available to purchase on the Affinity store.

Christi Du Toit is a full-time freelance commercial artist, graphic designer and digital brush-smith from Cape Town, South Africa.

We have commissioned his services several times to great effect—you can see his artwork on our website and in our videos, so when we heard he was working on a brush pack designed for Affinity we knew we had to make them available to you!

What is Christi’s Comix Toolbox?

The ‘Comix Toolbox’ was created specifically with a traditional comic-illustration aesthetic in mind.
