You might have already heard of Russ Mills. If not, let us tell you who this incredible artist is. Between urban fine art and contemporary graphics, Russ creates collisions of real and digital media with a firm foundation in drawing. He mainly focuses on the human form, particularly the face, interweaving elements from the animal kingdom often reflecting the absurdity of human nature.
Graduating from Leeds Met University in 1995, after completing a BA in Graphic Art and Design, Mills started finding gainful employment in various non-creative institutions. Starting with the basics, he began working with pen, pencil and a computer. Russ has spent almost 20 years crafting his skills, absorbing influences from every facet of visual culture and archiving found objects and ephemera to substantiate his work.
He has worked as a freelance illustrator with numerous clients in publishing and entertainment, more recently pursuing the more traditional gallery/exhibition path with solo shows in London and Bristol and group exhibits in the U.S. Numerous sell out print releases and coverage worldwide.
Today we present to you some of his greatest creations. Enjoy!

I have found Keith and his team in Clear Designs to be both very professional and very good at what they do. I have worked directly with Keith on many occasions, most recently on the design of our new company website and sales collateral. I would happily recommend Clear Designs for any design work you may have.
