I'm self taught when it comes to illustrator, but I've been taking classes on here lately to fill in knowledge gaps. Specifically, I was struggling with clipping masks, so that's what drew me to this lesson.  The way you worked with them, highlighting the way you work with layers was very helpful! thanks.

This is a vector illustration I made earlier today, and used your techniques to add the textures, and though I didn't make these from a brush, I did try that technique.
