RFR published a new page every week but is now completed.
RFR was created together by us, its two authors: Silver Saaremaeel and Kaija Rudkiewicz. We love mythologies, history, and fantasy, and felt like taking a crack at it ourselves. Since starting the comic we also expanded to a blog that updates weekly, with topics from creativity, to coffee,and occasional book recommendation.
The idea behind Run Freak Run came from multiple sources. There was something grim and disturbing about European history, and how the people of the time of the witch-hunts really believed in fairie creatures, demons and witches. It was a world where folktales were part of every day life, and not just hearsay.
We hope you enjoy the stories we tell, and stick around, for we’ve got lots of things coming up in the future. If you’d like to help through, please subscribe to our e-mail newsletter (get the latest news to your inbox), and consider purchasing a RFR ebook or original art!
Each Run Freak Run page starts from a script written by Silver, from where on Kaija goes through the process of thumbnailing, drawing and finally inking the comic on A3 Bristol paper. It is then scanned, lettered digitally and uploaded.
Silver writes and letters Run Freak Run. By day, he works as a lead artist for mobile games in Berlin, in Germany, where he lives together in their artsy studio with Kaija. Besides writing all his nights, Silver is a painter, avid reader, gamer and a lover of good quality Rieslings.
Kaija sketches, draws and inks everything in Run Freak Run. She’s the sole force responsible for the look of the comic. She is currently working as professional concept artist for the best looking mobile games in Berlin, Germany. Kaija is an artist, fashionista, crazy about scented candles and a dangerously workaholic; besides Run Freak Run, she spends her time creating her own original stories and researching all things dark, creepy and beautiful.
