Ryan Heshka

I ran into Ryan Heshka's incredible painting on the Cartoon Brew site and immediatly tracked down his webpage. What I found there was a great body of work influenced by all the stuff I love but with a real personal sensability. I knew I had to have one of his paintings but they all looked so great. WIth a little further investigation I saw that he did commisions. I have done a few commissions myself and have found the process very rewarding so I contacted Ryan. Ryan turned out to be super cool and we talked about ideas and ended up with a spooky forest scence which had as the central character my own dog Maizie.

Well just yesturday the finished painting arrived at my door and it is a stunner. My only problem is now I want another one! Also with the painting I got Ryan's self published book ABC Spookshow. This little powerhouse of a book features his artwork in full color glory and is not to missed.
