Ruben is my biggest, most complicated project to date. Due for release early 2017. A 92 page picture book I started to write ten years ago and started to illustrate six years ago. Though the final illustrations are done with a simple graphite push pencil they have been constructed by compiling photographic reference and 3d CGI reference I created in a 3d computer program called Cinema 4D.
Ruben is a young boy surviving in a futuristic derelict city. He ventures out everyday to find what he needs to survive but it is getting harder and harder. He has to go deeper and deeper into the heart of Block City. Escape is essential.
