My name is Ryan Plaisance, I like to work in animation, concept, and illustration. I’ve been involved with animation since childhood, it holds a special place in my heart. Cinema as a whole has shaped me into who I am today. My favorite animated films at the moment are Akira, The End of Evangelion, The Night Is Short Walk On Girl, Ponyo, and Patlabor The Movie. Among these, Akira has been the biggest inspiration for me as an animator. Since seeing such wonderful films growing up, I’ve had a drive to study animation wherever I can. If you’d like to work together or just want to say hello you can reach me at my email or phone number.
