Ink-credible Byroglyphics

I am very much inspired by the artworks on byroglyphics.com shared by a friend on facebook. I just love the grungy look produced by the mix of ink blots and smudges, with sketches of people and elements from nature. Click on the image below to see more cool works.

The British artist Russ Mills, loves sketching with his cheap ball point pens (Brits call them biro pens, pronounced as bairow) and he calls his art "byroglyphics". He has worked as a freelance illustrator with numerous clients in publishing and entertainment. Recently he's more into solo exhibits and he has had his works displayed in several art shows in London and Bristol and group in shows in the U.S.

I think I'd like a portrait of myself in this style. Hmm... maybe this grungy style would look good on a shirt. Of course the blots and smudges has to be simplified for it to be screenprint friendly. ^_^
