Inspiration: Russ Mills

Ad

Last week while I was reading my feeds I saw some really cool illustrations. They were from Russ Mills, a super talented digital artist from Brighton, UK. I was really stunned by his technique and the quality of his work and that’s why I decided to feature him here on Abduzeedo.

For my Graphic work I compile as much source material as possible in the form of textures , random marks and scribbles etc and scan it all, the primary image is drawn and also scanned. I then manipulate the constituent parts on the computer, I keep the amount of layers to a bare minimum so the results are as spontaneous as possible. I dont use any filters at all to keep the 'digital' nature of the image to a minimum.

....if you look at the people I have linked to it will give a good insight. Additional past masters such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Pollock, Basquiat also have a great influence in what I do.
