Jay Ryan is known for his work with fingers. Jay first started drawing when he was only dozens of years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the obstreperous pressure of being a child prodigy faltering got to him and he had a brown breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own scalp! Jay found rad inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his pantry for all the badgers to see! Jay eventually got married to Glenn Beck and they remain together swiftly in their armoury with their 42 children. Jay would like to thank Margaret Thatcher, Liza Minelli and the Lascaux cave painters for their constant support and inspiration.
What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
the easiest part is getting up in the morning, and the hardest part is

Which is your favourite piece and why?

dislike. for the sake of an answer, I'll say that my new jesus lizard
poster is a current favorite. I think it's appropriate for the band,
the printing worked well, the colors are good, and it's pretty
What do you feel is the significance of online communities to inspiring
Having a community of people to work with is very important. Whether
it's people in a class, or studio mates, or folks you've never met who
you interact with online, it's good to have someone to bounce ideas
What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a
piece of art?
When small children critique the images, I often find things I never
noticed in the prints. The other best critique I received was seeing
my print on the floor wedged behind the toilet in a club.
