On May 2015, he launched a drawings collection. He says: ‘’Since I’m young, I sketch eyes and human faces. I’m obsessed with their structures and geometric. I’ve recently seen a craze about some sketches a while ago.’’ So I officially launch a collection of sketches called '' FAIRE VISAGE ''. Each drawing is unique and realized by his left hand! FAIRE VISAGE is an ode to the geometry of the face, to the mathematic and asymmetric aspects of beauty. The eyes are the only window through the soul and the marks left by time.
He was also fashion columnist on TV show À 4 Épingles, broadcasted on MaTV channel. From 2016 to 2018, Rudy Bois had his art installation "Des visages tournés vers l'avenir," presented at the Complexe les Ailes (Montreal), in collaboration with Les Évadés and Ivanhoé Cambridge.
