Byroglyphics is the Online gallery for UK Digital Artist/Illustrator RUSS MILLS. His work is a hybrid of traditional media and digital imaging, focusing on human idiosyncrasies both physical and emotional resulting in distorted forms both subtle and extreme.
In many ways i find artist like this very interesting and well there is nothing different in this case. Russ Mills is a true artist, i mean there are not a lot of them hard core analog/digital artist out there. Now days everything is made out in photoshop brushes and vectorized illustrator paths. I heard a thing the other day, from a student over at Hyper Island that there are a lot of people in his class, that are HARD CORE ANALOG, yes correct people with absolutely ZERO computer usage but still very creative designers & artists.
Maybe it’s a trend, away of being these days, the more retro you go the bigger hype you build, its like if you have an iPhone (like me) your just a dude trying to be cool, but if you use the 1G iPod your the hypest kid on the block. (I’m gonna pull out my old ipod suffle) thats how cool i can be, maybe try to find an old trucker hat on the attic to.
