Russ Mills - byroglyphics
His own description from myspace.com:
"My name is Russ, at the moment I'm an illustrator, painter and designer type bod. Byroglyphics was born in the wee small hours of the morning one day in 2004, when I used to be a world champion alconaut, the name was shouted by my friend Hambot and it stuck in my head, we used to make up many words, most far more expressive than the one's in circulation today.
My illustrations are not too scientific, they begin life as sketches in ink, the tool of choice is the Bic 'fine' because it gives me a lot more mileage than more expensive, snootier fine liners that break if you give them too much stick. The sketch is transported into my ageing mac and then abused in photoshop (you may have heard of it) i use this because of the joy of multiple undo's plus its the closest I can get to painting without painting.
The next stage in byroglyphics' life is to turn these illustrations into big canvases, it's taken me many attempts to get to a stage where i'm confident enough to attack canvas and leave the relative safety of the computer, as with everything else it's a constant learning curve, sometimes a downward one. The results of these curves will be in circulation soon. "
