Rudy-Jan Faber - self taught, winning artist from the Netherlands

Rudy Faber is a self taught illustrator based in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands.  He first came to my attention as 1st runner-up in the International Breakthrough contest.

Often, the real winner in any contest is the 1st runner up. Why? Because they know they have what it takes to win but fate hasn't allowed it this time. Generally they become even more determined to be successful. Someone's success isn't measured by a mere is measured throughout their lifetime. 
Rudy said, "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."
I love tattoos! You'll see Rudy's work in the Directory of Illustration now and in the 2013 book.
