Ryan Poirier


All my life I’ve always had an eye for design, a heart for drawing, and a creative mind for writing!
My artistic focus has mostly resided in drawing cartoons over anything else.  From a young age I began creating my own cartoon characters and stories to go along with them.  As I got older, the characters I created grew with me along with their stories.  All of which I’d refer to as Accidental Creations, as their concepts would come alive to me so clearly, it was as if I’d accidentally stumbled across them as they sat in the dark corner of a dusty attic, awaiting their story to be told.  My journey now is to make this passionate dream of mine come true by introducing these stories and characters to those who appreciate independent, off the wall, accidental creations!
