The Art of Ryan Francis

The portfolio website of Ryan Francis


My name is Ryan Francis.

I’m a freelance cartoonist who has been drawing since childhood.

In 2009, I attended The Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg where I majored in Animation.

After graduation in 2011, I joined Game Refuge Inc as a game tester and help with the promotion and marketing of a few games.

After that time, I’ve done brief stints doing various freelance artwork for game jams and tattoo design until finally deciding to start focusing on becoming a comic artist.

I mostly enjoy drawing cartoons and comics influenced by the art of Jeff Smith, Dav Pilkey, Bill Waterson, Looney Tunes, Nintendo Games, Manga, Prog Rock, and hours of funny podcasts!
