Artist Series - Day 164: Greg Ruth

image


Today's artist was our "surprise" guest this week at the Illustration Master Class.  I know I've heard of him before, but the name never really rose above the signal-noise ratio of my brain.

Don't make that same mistake.  This guy is a *fantastic* artist with a sumi-e brush!  He does every panel of his comics as a separate illustration, and he can still finish 3-4 pages of incredible work a DAY.  A long drawing for him is an HOUR.

On top of that, he was one of the warmest, nicest people I've met in a field of nice people.  He does blog posts for Muddy Colors,  and there is a documentary of his work available online.
