Started in the beginning of January, we have a brand new Kickstarter you won't want to miss out on! For all artists struggling to improve your artwork, this is the campaign for you!
Every start to the new year
, we launch a Kickstarter featuring all the BEST illustration pieces Steve Rude has done for the previous year.
INSIDE each sketchbooks gives personal drawing notes + painting techniques that can help with any artist’s growth, younger or older.
"Steve Rude's sketchbooks gives the viewer insight to one of the great comic artist. You see his humor and his influences as he presents commissioned sketches he did the preceding year. Rude is known for Nexus and the supportinting characters. But also revived Space Ghost channeling the late Alex Toth. In some sketches he reverts to mimicking his influences like Toth or Jack Kirby but it is still Rude shining through. Highly recommend any if the sketchbooks although I'm partial to the 2009 pastel cover sketchbook."
"The 2022 Steve Rude sketchbook is an outstanding collection of finished pieces and of others in various states of completion. These latter images are accompanied by Steve's notes to himself. These observations are invaluable for understanding not just the "how" of his art but the "why" of his choices. Steve approaches his work with the probing mindset of a student on a lifelong quest to expand his multifaceted approach. We are all better for his willingness to share his journey with us. Steve Rude is both master and pupil."
"This dazzling collection of works from Steve Rude is inspirational and instructive. Of particular note are the various notes, quotes and insights into how he thinks and works. These are hugely important for students and fans alike. Steve Rude is truly the Artist's Artist."
