He’s bringing his most recent work, Lonesomes to kickstarter and with 8 days to go (as I write this) Ryan is seeking backers to bring this project from screen to paper.
Lonesomes tells the story of a group of lonely kids who discover mystical creatures called Lonesomes that are drawn to their unique loneliness. Together, they delve into the world and lore of these creatures while simultaneously learning about themselves.
The premise is inspired by “collectible monster genre”, think Pokemon, Digimon, Yokai Watch, etc and the Japanese influence permeates this western-set story.
In Ryan’s own words “I grew up in the middle of nowhere Pennsylvania as an avid comic fan. Through my teenage years I fell in love with the hyper imaginative world of Manga. I think Lonesomes is a combination of those two loves”
