About the Artist
Howdy Friends! I’m J. Ryan Landry, and I draw caricatures and portraits for a living. Although I was born in Oklahoma City, I was raised in Kansas City until I attended college at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. While at Miami, I studied Art, History and Graphic Design. I worked at Paramount’s King’s Island over summers drawing caricatures. During the school year I created editorial cartoons for both the university paper and the city of Oxford’s – The Oxford Press.
I spent most of my life in Kansas and 4 years in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Myrtle Beach afforded me the opportunity to draw caricatures on the beach. During the Fall and Springs I traveled with a group of artist to attend several State Fairs. We would go as far north as upper state New York to Jacksonville, Florida and many states in between.
Over the years I’ve drawn for the Kansas City Royals, the Chiefs, Hollywood Casino, Dave & Busters and many other events from birthday parties, corporate events, fundraisers, proms, grad after-parties, and conventions, and weddings.
I love to see a smile on people when they see their final drawing because I am committed to making sure that everyone goes home happy.
I hope you’ll contact me and let me help you create lasting, happy memories at your next celebration or event. Oh, and I also offer graphic and web design services upon request. You guessed it, art and design is my passion.
