Despite majoring in arts and holding a few certificates from art classes/seminars he attended, Rui Silva is mostly self-taught. Over the past 13 years, he has been involved in the arts and creative scene as a freelancer, especially in game design and the ongoing creation of his graphic novel, "Rocketman".
