Steve Rude


Steve Rude considers himself an art student. The desire to better his craft with each new project shows an expressive and caring approach. He holds deep appreciation for the illustrators who have come before. By studying the works of such masters as Andrew Loomis, John Gannam, Harry Anderson, Jack Kirby, and Russ Manning, Rude continues to perfect his talent. The result is an artist with the discipline and training of the grand illustrators from the 1930s to 1950s. Rude applies this knowledge to his true passion of modern comic books.

Rude’s career began in 1981 with his and co-creator Mike Baron's groundbreaking "Nexus" comic series. This space saga catapulted Rude into the field of comics, where he became highly sought after by major publishers. During his first few years in the industry, Rude's efforts led to numerous awards, such as the 1984 Russ Manning Newcomer Award, the Kirby Award for best artist in 1986, and numerous Eisner's for artistic achievement. To date, Rude has drawn hundreds of comic’s greatest iconic heroes. Currently, Rude’s focus is on Nexus, and his latest passion The Moth.
