FACTS Convention-Ghent, Belgium-September 26-27, 2015

Death

I'll be appearing at the FACTS Convention in Ghent, Belgium on September 26-27. This is my first appearance at a comic convention outside of the USA. I don't do a lot of conventions, so if you're in Europe and you want a sketch or signature, I'll be there.

My commission list for this show is full. Here's two commissions I've done for the show, so far.

SURVIVOR'S CLUB New Vertigo ongoing in October!


Announced at SDCC, Survivor's Club is my new book with co-writers Lauren Beukes and Dale Halvorsen, with colors by Eva De La Cruz and cover art by Bill Sienkiewicz! It's an all-new Vertigo ongoing series. 

Info here

One was possessed by a poltergeist. Another was trapped in a haunted house. A third had a killer doll. Ever wonder what happened to these children of the 1980s? Find out in SURVIVORS CLUB, a new series cowritten by renowned horror novelist Lauren Beukes and videogame journalist Dave Halverson, with art by Ryan Kelly (NORTHLANDERS).

Having found each other over the internet, six grown-up survivors are drawn together by the horrors they experienced in 1987 when a rash of occult events occurred around the world—with fatal results. Now, there are indications that it may be happening all over again. Is it possible that these six aren’t just survivors—but were chosen for their fates?  


The first issue is On Sale in 2 months! 10/07! Please tell your friends and be sure to put in your order at your comic shop.

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

I'll be attending MCBA ComicCon tomorrow, May 16 and 17 and Heroescon June 19-21!
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. 

Tom Waits

Rogue
Wonder Woman
Northlanders

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 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


Burying Beetle

Black Swallowtail Caterpillar

Bust stop waiting

Dragonfly

Elvis Presley


Grace Kelly from Rear Window

Gypsy Moth Caterpillar

Gimme Shelter (Mick Jagger and Tina Turner)

Millipede

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 http://www.funramacomic.com/
