Ryan has been a passionate artist of all types of illustration since childhood. Graduating from high school, and with no means to attend college, Ryan joined the army and served as an infantryman for eight years.
“With the ability to attend college through the GI Bill, I studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco,” he says. “After receiving my BFA in visual development, I moved to Los Angeles where my first job was with Disney Interactive as a concept artist.
Recent endeavours include a series of children’s books dealing with bullying issues called Space Pilgrim.
IMAGINEFX CRIT “I like Ryan’s painting style: it’s deceptively simple, but look closer and it’s full of details. There’s humour, too: who would have thought that rabbits were taught about the significance of carrots?” Cliff Hope, Operations Editor
Mermaid “Sometimes you just have an urge to draw a girl with a fish tail.”
Sp ace Pilg rim “This is my current children’s book project, to be completed within the next year or so. It’s about the adventures of a boy named Logan who’s launched into space and crash lands on an alien planet.”
Storytime “A private commission illustration of bunnies learning about the colourful history of the carrot. Some of the bunnies are less than interested.” Fell ow expl orers “Another scene from my Space Pilgrim book. When the boy crash lands he’s not alone. Logan is joined by Emma and a helpful robot named Bert.”
