I became aware of Russell Mills as the illustrative designer of More Dark than Shark and the Brian Eno compilation, More Blank Than Frank/Desert Island Selection. I admire his approach of using a mixed-media technique similar to Robert Rauschenberg’s, along with creating the Nine Inch Nails logo using a blacksmith/metal worker to make his design out of steel, then burying it in the ground for a while to rust and tarnish.
