Russell's an old friend of HoS who first exhibited way back with us in 2011. He's an Illustrator and comic artist based in East London who makes drawings inspired by punk rock, 90s wrestling, cartoons and all things cheap, plastic and disposable. His work has been published in Complex Magazine, Artrocker, Kult Magazine, Fun, Shellsuit Zombie, Eyeball Comix and Snuff Comix as well as being used by Riff Raff, Topman, Stickerbomb, YRstore, Fluffer Records, Awesome Merchandise and CRMC Clothing. And if that's not enough he's also contributed illustrations videos for music videos VANT and Love Buzzard which were directed by Youth Hymns. Anyway, here he's politely answered a few of our questions...
