New Comic Announced! CRY HAVOC! Image Comics in 2016!
My next book was announced at ImageExpo a week ago! CRY HAVOC with Si Spurrier! A 6-issue series coming in early 2016.
"Best described as Jarhead via Pan's Labyrinth, CRY HAVOC is a modern mix of myth, military, and monstrosity."
The most exciting part of this project is that it will feature the talents of three colorists: Nick Filardi, Lee Loughridge and Matt Wilson; with Simon Bowland on letters and Emma Price doing the logo and book design! Isn't that amazing?!
There's a decent feature on Cry Havoc on Bleeding Cool
CBR has a full round-up of all the new Image books announced at Image Expo.
And we have a dedicated tumblr for Cry Havoc that features a video with Si talking about the new book!
We can't wait to put Cry Havoc in your hands in 2016!

HEROESCON and MSP COMICCON Commissions
|Miss America and Loki|
This is your chance to buy original art, art prints, books and FUNRAMA #1-3 from me! I don't make it out to a lot of cons so this is it!
Here are some Heroescon Pre-show commissions. If you want to commission a PRE-SHOW DRAWING from me, it's probably too late. I'm pretty filled up. But maybe I can fit in a smaller, simpler, 9 X 12 inch drawing of your favorite character in a vanilla pose (for example, see the simpler "In-Show" Drawings of Wonder Woman and Northlanders down there...scroll down). email me at funrama at gmail.
But hey, I can sketch for you at the show. Quick sketches are free, but nicer ones that I spend time on (like below) cost money.

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!
I moved my Art Sale over to my Storenvy site http://ryankellyart.storenvy.com/ 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
|Black Swallowtail Caterpillar|
|Bust stop waiting|
|Grace Kelly from Rear Window|
|Gypsy Moth Caterpillar|
|Gimme Shelter (Mick Jagger and Tina Turner)|
|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 http://www.funramacomic.com/

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.
