Emerald City Comicon 2015

I'm going to my first ever Emerald City ComiCon and I'm looking forward to finally seeing the grunge scene. I will be with table in the HH-07 if that means anything to you. My table will be small so I will only be taking what I need to survive. Prints, original art, books, the usual crap. 

Up there is the painted piece I did for their Monsters And Dames Charity Art Book.

Fri-Sun, March 27-29

New Art! New Art Sale!

Autobot Tracks

I moved my Art Sale over to my Storenvy site So, Instead of a yearly art sale, I've decided to do an art sale every 4th month. So, Every March, July and November. More Art!

Every art sale, I try to sell art as affordably as I can, because I believe everyone should own original art if they want it. Everyone should be able to look at real brushstrokes. Prints are great, but there's something about looking at an artist's real craft in hand.

Here's some new and old pieces. Go over to the sale site. There's still some art available. You can also pick up some books: Giant Robot Warriors and Funrama # 1-3

Burying Beetle

Black Swallowtail Caterpillar

Bust stop waiting


Elvis Presley

Grace Kelly from Rear Window

Gypsy Moth Caterpillar

Gimme Shelter (Mick Jagger and Tina Turner)


Striped Mantis

Three Days Of The Condor

FUNRAMA #1-3 Review at All-COMIC

I am full of joy that ALL.COMIC reviewed the first 3 issues my comic FUNRAMA!
 Check out the review where they say:

"A smorgasbord of superhero conventions, Funrama is an absolute celebration of comic books. Zigging where you thought he would zag, Ryan Kelly is building a unique world that wants to reach off the page and high-five you. Beyond simply proving yet again he’s a masterful artist, Kelly is showing his writing chops are nothing to sneeze at by delivering sharply written dialogue and cleverly structured scripts that are heavy on character and atmosphere."

Hooray! Remember you can purchase FUNRAMA and read the first issue at

Commissions for Emerald City Comicon

EDIT 1/07/2014: Sorry, my commission for ECCC got totally full. All filled up. It's possible I can still do commissions in gray on small 9 X 12 inch paper or just "headshots" for a low price. if interested, email me. Thank you!

Omg, I'm going to Emerald City Comicon?! That's what it says right there. It's in print, it must be true.

If YOU go to ECCC and you want a commission from me, this is your chance! Just email me at funrama at gmail dot com. Don't delay. Don't dilly-dally. Just pick an idea out of your head and I'll paint it all up for you. If you're not sure yet if I'm a good artist, that's okay, I'm not sure either!...but take a look at these recent commissions and use your best judgment.

Prices depend on what you want, and what size and Color or no.

A word o' warning: ECCC is probably going to be like TCAF for me. I'll go once and give it a shot and that will probably be it, so if you want a commission, don't be shy, let a Ryan Kelly know!

EDIT: Like most artists, I prefer to do popular, fictional characters in mainstream comics, cartoons, movies, tv. I'm open to the idea of video games and anime, but I don't know any of that stuff and so I'm kind of numb to it.

I do not draw art buyer's personal original characters. I SHY AWAY from drawing stuff from people's indie books--like image books and stuff. I have no reasonable explanation for it... I just don't like it. I took on a few of those right now, but if it gets too much, I have to ease back. It's a little hypocritical because ill draw Batman, Optimus Prime and Darth Vader and those were others' creations; but sometimes I'm just not in the mood to draw something or other...It's VERY rare, but it happens.

One commission request I get by THE TRUCKLOADS -- and I guess it's because of my style and the books I've worked on (or maybe every artist gets these...?)-- is people asking me to draw their boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband. I don't enjoy doing these, and there's always too much potential for disappointment. I CAN do these but I would charge A LOT. I mean, A LOT.

Coffin Hill #14 Next Month

On sale DECEMBER 10 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • MATURE READERS
Travel back to a summer night in 1970 when Coffin Hill saw its worst mass murder in over 200 years. A gang of killers who cut a bloody swath across the USA roll into the sleepy village...but they didn’t count on what they would find in the house at the end of the last street in town – or on the ghosts of Coffin Hill, who are only too eager to add more souls to their ranks.

Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman
I've been too busy to do commissions, but I've done a few here and there. I'm finishing up some some work this week and I could probably do few commissions for the remainder of the year. If you want anything, email me. funrama at gmail. Here's a commissioned drawing of Gwen Stacy "SpiderGwen" so you can see what kind of quality I offer.

Note: I do not enjoy doing personal commissions of friends, family, boyfriends, wives, pets, etc, stuff like that. I also don't like drawing other people's original characters and things. I can do these things, but I now charge a crazy amount of money to ease the pain. With commissions, I like drawing popular mainstream characters from comic books, cartoons, movies, TV... stuff like that (and my characters of course!)
