I said a few weeks ago that I had big news to share and here it is!

On August 12th, I will be flying to Changchun, China to teach English!

It's crazy to think that I would be moving to China to teach (at a University!) I started writing and drawing here back in 2012 and I had NO idea what I wanted to do with my life career-wise. When I graduated I thought I might go into scriptwriting and storyboarding, but when this opportunity appeared, I took it and I cannot wait to run with it! 

While I have lived overseas before (Portugal, Germany, Philippines), this will be a whole new adventure! :D

But what does that mean about my MLP Next Generation story and pics? For the moment, as I continue to go through the EXTENSIVE paperwork for entering China, raising money to get there, and a million other things, I have been a bit bogged down. I will say that my next chapter is still being written and I hope to get it out sooner than later. Rest assured, I will NOT stop short now! My story WILL get finished and it will be as awesome as I can make it! 

Until then, if you guys would like, I'll start posting my hundreds of sketches one at a time. I have no time to color them, but I hope you enjoy them anyway! 

China will be a brand new life for me, but I have no intention of leaving this wonderful place. In fact, once my story is done, I will be working on WRITING ORIGINAL NOVELS of my own! So THANK YOU to everyone who has been so supportive of me and my work over the years. 

You guys are the best and I look forward to submitting my best, even from China! ;)

Hello, I'm Ryan and I love art and writing.

I'm a HUGE cartoon fan and animation and cinema have been interests of mine for a long time. Video games and sports are awesome as well and yes.....I am a brony. Overall, I love creativity and seeing what others have to contribute as well!

Hi! Do you mind if I make foals inspired by yours, but with my own designs? Anything similar is purely a coincidence
