Hi, I'm Rufus Dayglo, comic book artist.
I'm the artist on 6 series of Tank Girl, and my new series SOLID GOLD DEATH MASK from 3A.
I like Robots, Panzer tanks, and Japanese toy robots..

On the Friday evening, September 22nd at 7 pm, there is the opening of the 2000ad Art exhibition organised by VICE PRESSto celebrate the opening of the Thought Bubble Convention weekend which will feature guest artists in attendance, exclusive print releases and a couple more surprises to be announced. The Art gallery show is FREE to attend and will run from September 1st until September 30th at The Gallery at 164, Munro House, Leeds. My art print design will be revealed by Vice Press soon on their Instagram/Twitter!
If your circuits haven’t overloaded yet, the 2000ad Nerve Centre team will be making the Helltrek to Leeds to deliver the ‘2000 AD Juve Cube’ - the official after-party of the opening of Vice Press Presents: Zarjaz! An Art Tribute to 40 Years of 2000 AD.
I will be at Thought Bubble Comics Festival all Saturday and Sunday morning and will announce a signing time soon at the 2000ad stand.
We are all in this together. You and me.
The World must unite now to fight Fascism and Intolerance.
We can make a beautiful world for ourselves, our neighbours and our loved ones.
Make art, make noise, challenge, help others, welcome strangers, make friends, volunteer your time, be kind, and have fun.
I really do believe we can make a difference. Now is not the time to be quiet.
2017 is a big year for 2000 AD, the Galaxy's Greatest Comic book.
Not only does "Galaxy's Greatest Comic" celebrate its
40th anniversary, but it'll do so with a special one-day live event
being held in London next February which I will be attending and sketching at, I'll also have a special exclusive print on sale!
The comic helped creators such as Alan Moore, Brian Bolland, Dave
Gibbons and Grant Morrison find fame, and guests at the live event will
include those from the long history of the title, including Judge Dredd creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, as well as Watchmen artist Gibbons, Suicide Squad writer Rob Williams, Slaine artist Simon Bisley and Criminal and Kill Or Be Killed's
Sean Phillips. Alongside signings, programming at the day-long show
will also include what publisher Rebellion is calling "one-of-a-kind
spectacles befitting the legacy of the finest comic book export the U.K.
has ever produced."
"2000 AD is the crown jewel of British comics," 2000 AD
editor Matt Smith said in a statement. "February’s festival will be an
explosive celebration – not only of the achievements of the creators for
the past forty years, but also a chance to thank the fans for their
continued loyalty across the decades."
The event, titled 2000 AD: 40 Years of Thrill Power, will take place at the Novotel London West on Feb. 11! (It's sold out already!)
Due to illness, I missed the Orbital TANK GIRL themed Life drawing class a few weeks ago....
To make up for it.. ART MODEL COLLECTIVE have rescheduled it for Ticketholders!
So on February 17th, at 7pm, I will be there with Art Model collective at Orbital Comics in London's glorious West End!
They will be dressed up as Tank and Jet girl.... I will be bringing Original art and Props from the Tank Girl books by both myself and Jamie Hewlett so the life drawing class can check it out, then I will be doing some sketches for people too! I'll have a few goodies to give out to people!
There may be a few spare tickets due to the rescheduling...so contact Orbital Comics to find out if you can sneak in and join us!
This Feb. 17-19th 2017 as part of Geek Festival 2017I have helped organise an exhibition of original 2000ad artwork to help us celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic!
Come along to Dreamland in scenic Margate and check out rare and previously unseen original art from 2000ad.
Poster art was drawn by the fabulous Mick McMahon, based on a layout by myself back in 2000...and I recently recoloured it from a photocopy (the original art being in storage somewhere, and the original colour art file lost to history!!)
My lovely friends at Orbital Comics in London are hosting a TANK GIRL-inspired costumed Life Drawing session after-hours at the Eisner award winning comic shop at 8 Great Newport Street, Central London, wc2h, just near Leicester square!
Art Model Collective at Orbital comics for their Tank Girl tribute session, with special guest artist Rufus Dayglo!
Professional life models Carla
and Manko will be styled by Rufus with costumes and props he created to
draw the Tank Girl comics.
Rufus will show his original artwork, and share his tips and
techniques over complimentary refreshments.
2 hour life drawing event is tailored towards the needs of comic book
artists, with dynamic, interactive poses, costumes and props, dramatic
lighting and themed soundtrack.
Drawing boards and basic art materials provided, but please bring your favourite tools.
Surrounded by pencils, awash in ink, sipping lukewarm coffee, and still vaguely keeping to deadline...
