Rudcef's Compathy Through Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Strangely enough, Rudcef majored in statistics. Though after graduation, his cousin passed away and he abandoned everything and started to draw. Sometimes he feels like he felt eager to leave evidence of existence behind. He draws for compathy, meaning he hopes to share what he's feeling when he's drawing with others, whether the feelings are of happiness, grief, illustration allows him to pass that on. His drawings are raw, graphic depictions, situations and portraits. LOVE.
