Hi, my name is Robert and I am a comic book artist and illustrator. I am a graduate of The Kubert School where I received training in everything from painting to animation which really helped me to grow my skills as an artist. I am currently doing freelance art jobs while working on my own creator owned project!

My name is, Robert Daniel Ryan, Portland Metro based Commercial Artist/illustrator. I am a former graduate from The Kubert School, an intense three-year program where I studied everything from animation to anatomy to digital painting, with an emphasis on sequential storytelling. I graduated May of 2013 and I’m currently seeking contract and/or full-time employment as a commercial artist or graphic designer. I'm always seeking challenging career opportunities to utilize my proven experience in art direction, IP creation, writing and editing, business development, and related creative areas.
My love of art started at a very young age I routinely drew and even would fall asleep with my crayons or pencil still in my hand. I grew up loving Disney and comics; to see Marvel & Dc bring life to the amazing comics I grew up with is magical. I still have this love and passion for all arts. I have a nerd love of both superhero books and fantasy/mythology and I particularly love the books that can delve into both worlds (Wonder Woman, Thor, etc.)
My portfolio ranges from paintings of Dark Willow to Digital Paintings of Britney Spears. I also love depicting beautiful, strong and self reliant women and appreciate all the opportunities comic books provide to showcase that. I enjoy drawing everything from fight scenes and mayhem to the quiet moments in between. My career experiences have produced the following key strengths: illustration, writing and editorial, graphic design, creative thought, project management, brand management, and business development.
