Yes those are a pencil shavings of various colors, and yes, that is a self-portrait by an artist under the moniker, Anmagdan. The artist has all sorts of tips on body art, and with someone who uses pencil shavings, wax, paint, crayons, and sculptures around her face, we take her word that she is nearing authority status.

Everything that's right with the action-gore work of Boneface just might be the same things that make him perfectly wrong for any other creative endeavor. We love this work, and loved it so much that we featured it in the newest issue of Juxtapoz, our September 2012 issue. The titles of his humorously brutal illustrations, like 'Actionfu*kers' or 'Over My Dead Body' are so perfectly matched with the bloody, gruesome rendered narratives and comics he creates.

"I started out a few years ago after graduating from Loughborough University with a BA in Illustration and have since worked for the likes of Radio Times, Wired and Anorak. The work itself always tries to communicate in as concise a way as possible and often try to use visual metaphors or in jokes to convey a message."

We have shown you the work of UK illustrator Russ Mills on the site before, but the artist just posted some new works on his site, our favorites to date. We love how the artist combines photography, illustration, and fine art. Mills say of his work: its a "collision of real and digital media it is primarily illustration based with a firm foundation in drawing, I focus mainly on the human form particularly the face, interweaving elements from the animal kingdom often reflecting the absurdity of human nature."
