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.”
