Hello, my name is Ryan Button. I was born and raised in a little city called Leicester, UK in 1982.
I studied and graduated with a B.A. degree in Multimedia Design from De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.
I do enjoy illustrating in various styles and working alongside various companies within the music, movie and gaming industries.
I’m always trying new ways of being creative with such digital programs as Photoshop, Painter, Illustrator and Art Rage, where work in progress and experiments can be found on my Facebook page or Tumblr account.
