Richard Rudge is an artist from the West Midlands, with a strong focus on comic book illustration, often with high contrast black and white rendering. Influenced by Japanese animation, science fiction as well as modern fashion and design Richard tries to take inspiration from multiple angles to find a unique edge. Richard self publishes his own comic book stories, most notably the science fiction series WAYFARER.
WAYFARER focuses on how technology influences society, and reaches into the future to see how things will change, to make us think about how what we do will affect the world.
“I wanted to join the Swan project to challenge myself, to make something that has a positive effect on a community, not just in a charitable sense, but also with public artwork.”
