For nearly 16 years I’ve had the pleasure of imagining new worlds and crafting 2D visuals for the game development industry. In my heart I’m an illustrator and concept artist. But my willingness to grow and be challenged in my various roles have afforded me a breadth of skills that I’ve been able to add to my art arsenal. I’ve developed a keen eye and sensibilities for UI/UX. I’ve learned to breathe life into my work by creating simple animations in After Effects. I’ve even dabbled in video editing, texture mapping and low poly 3D modeling as needed. Even though my primary desire is to draw and paint; I’ve approached my job with humility and a readiness to put my hands to whatever the product or team needs.
For over 8 years now I’ve been leading and managing artists based around the world. I’ve overseen a myriad of game projects to completion from infancy. I help guide our artists to successful completion of their tasks in order to bring beautiful, entertaining experiences to millions of players around the world. I thrive when working with a team of people who love what they do and are passionate about products they create. That’s the sort of attitude and energy I strive to bring to the squad I lead. I desire to lift people up, equip them for success and empower them to be the best version of themselves. I love people and there’s nothing better then finding an amazing team to encourage, grow and make awesome things with!

Ryan Bowlin currently resides near St. Louis, MO with his wife, two kids and one loud Corgi. When he's not drawing dwarves you'll often find him playing video games, watching Cardinal's baseball, and sadly drinking protein shakes in his kitchen after working out. :P
