Illustrators Pick: Joao Ruas
Last week I posted about James Jean, a former illustrator for the renowned graphic novel Fables. In continuing my love of the Fables covers, today is another illustrator who also did covers for Fables: Joao Ruas.
Joao's penchant for limited color schemes, amazing line work, and modern compositions make his work breathtaking. His dark approach to subject matter and aesthetic leave me wishing I could dissect his brain. Steal his mystical powers.
Currently he is working out of São Paulo. Make sure you check him out because he is fantastic.
