Ryan discovered his love for hand-lettering when asked to illustrate some text on a chalkboard wall at his current place of employment. Several months and illustrations later, it had grown into an obsession.
Inspired by retro sign paintings, and contemporary artists like Dana Tanamachi, Ryan has gone on to create chalk murals for various retail stores and small businesses. He’s been featured in both the AIGA Member Gallery, and the Behance Graphic Design Gallery for his work at TJ’s Woodfire Pizza and Lolli & Pops Candy Store, respectively.
He currently resides in Corona, California.
