Matt Ryan’s Mine Studio has been producing quality work and lessons for over ten years. Starting in a small studio in Simsbury Connecticut. Matt was able to work on his college art projects and operate as a working sister studio to Mark Lewis Creative Arts. Since then, he has done character design for large companies, published comics, painted and illustrated for a gaming cd, package design and has taken his lessons to a larger audience.

As a partner at Free Lunch Studios, located in Granby CT, Matt teaches groups and privately in comic themed workshops and classes as well as hosts special art events there.

The Mine Studio’s philosophy is to produce a quality product. To bring life to a new visual rendering of the client’s vision, be it either package design, character concepts, sequential art or any other task at hand.
