Graphic designer Russ Mills scans in textures and random scribbles and manipulates them with his computer. The result, however, is anything but digital.

Mills uses drab canvases to emphasize streaks of color among monotone splatters, which highlights nearly hidden profiles subjects that draw you in with moody gazes. [via picdit]
