Legendy Śremskie na wesoło
'Legendy Śremskie na wesoło'.

Artur Ruducha is a Polish comic artist and illustrator. In addition to his commercial work, he has produced several comics albums. These are often based on pop culture and local folklore, and characterized by an almost malicious sense of humor. Ruducha works in a humorous yet precise graphical style, which reveals the artist's fascination with the classic children's comics of his country.

Early life and career
Ruducha was born in 1972 in the northwestern provicine of West Pomeranian, and lives in Srem, near Poznan in Greater Poland. He grew up reading the work of Polish authors like Papcio Chmiel, Tadeusz Baranowski and Janusz Christa, but he has also expressed his admiration for his fellow countrymen Grzegorz Rosiński, Zbigniew Kasprzak, Piotr Kowalski and Sławek Jezierski. Ruducha has worked as an illustrator and storyboard artist for clients like Heinle, Cambridge, Macmillan, Hachette Livre, Langenscheidt, Aksjomat, Nowa Era and Gazeta Wyborcza. His artwork appears in children's magazines, educational books for children and adolescents, games, advertisements and on postcards and satirical cartoons.

Ruducha has created several comic albums since the early 2000s. 'Kraina Crunch' (2001) and 'Crunch Cup 2002' (2002) dealt with the world of the Crunch monsters, and were part of a campaign by Lorenz Snack-World for their crisps brand Crunchips.

Educational comics
Ruducha subsequently made comics segments and illustrations for two educational books for learning the English language by MacMillan Poland, starring the 'Super Kids 3' (2006). He contributed stories to a tribute album to the classic Polish children's comic 'Tytus, Romek i A'Tomek' by Papcio Chmiel.

Bernard Twardooki
Around 2003 Ruducha worked on a more personal project with the character 'Bernard Twardooki' (in cooperation with Prescot), aimed at the international market market. The book was however never published, but it did serve its PR purpose as it got Ruducha noticed as an efficient commercial artist for a younger audience.

Legendy Sremskie na wesolo
In 2013 Ruducha created 'Legendy Śremskie na wesoło', a comic album containing legends about his hometown Śrem. A second volume followed in 2019. In 2015 he made an educational children's comic about ecology, called 'Woda, niebo, słońce, las... chrońmy ziemię póki czas'. At the turn of 2017 and 2018, Ruducha created the comic book 'To rozśmiesza, to porusza… Czar komiksów Tadeusza!'. It is dedicated to the works of another Polish comic legend, Tadeusz Baranowski. The book contains dozens of motifs taken from Baranowski's comic books, which were collected and put together from scratch in a cartoon collage. Ruducha subsequently worked with writer Daniel Koziarski on the comics album 'Kapitan Szpic i wielki cyrk' (2018).
