Borus Fortuin is a Rotterdam-based illustrator who emphasizes on issues like social equality, identity, gender and the human-tech relationship. He has minimalistic yet lively linework and works with pen and paper as well as digitally.
With projects like Fragile Men and with his alter ego Sunny Heartbreak , Borus clearly shows how he wants to combine a tough ('manly') side with a more gentle, emotional side. He plays with the expectations of the viewer and twists it around. It's not difficult to draw a line between his personal anecdotes and the bigger social story.
Borus is also a Dungeons and Dragons fan, a skateboarder and a Kenpo Karate brown belt.
