Steve Rude

Steve Rude drawing
Many modern comic book artists pride themselves on throwing away what’s come before. A few, however, show their respect for tradition and display the influence of the great comics artists who showed us all how it’s done.

Steve Rude is a comic book artist and illustrator who has reaped the benefit of respect for tradition. His beautifully restrained comic book work shows the influence of comic greats Jack Kirby and Russ Manning and his sophisticated illustration technique shows thoughtful study of the work of Andrew Loomis and other great illustrators.

Most of the artwork on the site is in the gallery but there is also art in News and other sections. There is a new book of his work due in 2006 from Flesk Publications.
