About + Contact


I'm Jim Rugg - a comic book artist, book maker, illustrator, and designer. Books include Street Angel, the PLAIN Janes, Afrodisiac, Notebook Drawings, Rambo 3.5, and Supermag. I love comic books, zines, lettering, podcasts, running, pro-wrestling, pizza, and cats. I live and draw in Pittsburgh. I teach visual storytelling at the School of Visual Arts and the Animation Workshop in Denmark. Accolades include Eisner and Ignatz Awards, AIGA 50/50, Society of Illustrators Annual, and Investing in Professional Artists: The Pittsburgh-Region Artists Grants Program, a partnership of The Heinz Endowments and The Pittsburgh Foundation.

Here's a podcast interview that covers a lot of my art making practices and comics.
