About Russ

Russ Cox was raised by a pack of crazed hillbillies in the back woods of Tennessee. Without much in the way of modern conveniences, like a television set or running water, he spent his time drawing and whittling away the hours, often dreaming of the joys of a shower.

Hey, Russ.
Good Bio.
Welcome to JacketFlap.
Comment by Tamra Veilleux on 1/23/2009 at 5:41 AM:
Hey Russ, tell me more. How long have you been in Maine? Are you finding work? How do you create your drawings. They look like digital work, are they?

I love your colorful bright style, it's very modern. My style is more handmade looking (bad verbage, I know.)
