My Bio

Lucas Ryan graduated from SCAD with a BFA in animation where he was also president of their Classical Animation Society. Ryan was a director, animator and illustrator with the animation studio “Dagnabit!” He’s won a Telly award for animation. He's hung spinning elves from ceilings for Kurt Adler. For years before, he was a caricaturist at theme parks, an underground gypsy cart, and the Savannah riverfront, stretching faces for cash. He has performed with, and directed, several improv comedy troupes. He taught improv, sang songs, told stories and built a life-sized, wooden camel that spits water and poops dates for Renaissance festivals. When he was born he cried in bass. He lost 200 lbs in less than a year through diet and exercise. He once won a mustache contest at an art museum that was exhibiting works by Salvador Dali. He’s wrestled a bear. He’s the honorary brother of a Belgian knight. An Egyptian ambassador attempted to buy an oil painting of him, but was turned down by the painter.

The Midnight World

The Midnight World

Once, long ago, you saw something horrible. Ever since, you have lived with the terrible memory of it burning in your mind. You may have dedicated your life to learning more about what you saw, or perhaps you've focused on science in an attempt to explain it away. No matter how you've lived in the wake of that moment, one truth has proven inescapable.  Monsters are real. You've met them. In the Midnight World. I'm working alongside James Davey and Jim Beverly as the illustrator for their tabletop RPG horror game "the Midnight World." James and Jim are army veterans who wanted to create a tabletop RPG that explores themes of anxiety and PTSD in a world full of monsters.
