My name is Rudy-Jan Faber. I’m a self taught illustrator based in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands.

When I was a young boy, around the age of five, my dad taught me some basics in drawing (for some reason he denies this though…) and I’ve been passionately drawing and painting ever since. I started out drawing animals, mostly dinosaurs, then took a more cartoony approach. Around the age of ten, fueled by my addiction for ‘beat ‘em up’ video games such as ‘Street Fighter’ I started drawing bulky warriors and ninjas. It was then that I learned I liked to draw figurative drawings and character designs. In my early teenager years somehow my interest for the human figure switched from drawing tough men to drawing women and to this day this remains my main subject of choice in my personal work.

I love illustrating pin-ups. Sometimes I choose bright and colorful themes with some urban, pop-art, lowbrow influences. Other times I enjoy painting dark, eerie and macabre themed illustrations. My main focus in my work is giving my characters lots of personality.

Apart from that I still enjoy drawing cartoons very much. Read Less
