OUTRIDER X URSA MAJOR  

LIMITED-RUN PRODUCT  

The year 2020 found the whole world looking for solice and comfort and escape. For me, I returned to some old stories where I could find strength when I was young. I returned to Middle Earth and re-read Lord of the Rings for the first time in years. 

I couldn’t help but start drawing scenes and shapes from the stories as they captured my imagination again. I found a kindred spirit in Victor from Ursa Major Supply- an online shop with a flair for flair and a love of Tolkien. We collaborated with a series of 2 bandanas in two colorways each. With artwork inspired by the books, and my childhood interpretations, these turned out to be hugely succesful limited runs that spoke to everyone at home looking to fight the darkness and dreaming of life outside the Shire.

Furthermore, to package these items, I created a custom hand-drawn typeface “Mithrandir” as an homage to my favorite wizard.

A FEW THINGS 


ABOUT ME


FATHER OF TWO • AQUARIUS • ASPIRING WIZARD


Hi, I'm Ryan. I've been developing top rail artwork for rock bands, dive bars, and other renegades and scoundrels since 2007.

I’m visually driven and love to create.  I’ve been utilizing my art and design background to make lots of cool stuff for at least 12 years – key illustrations, product design, events, brand identity, packaging, multimedia social content and high-level strategic concepts.

I’m passionate about this stuff and I’m very much at home with a large team – partnering with large CPG brands on huge promotions. But I get true satisfaction by helping upstarts craft their voice through hand-crafted design and illustration.

Lately I’ve been inspired by vintage fantasy artwork, the North American wilderness, disco music and old beer cans.

Let's make some stuff together!

Why Outrider?
An outrider is someone who rides ahead to make sure that the rest of the group is ok. They look outward to the horizon and chart new territory. They’re someone who might go alone and take a unique path but always has the safety and wellbeing of the group in mind. Outrider is my ethos for the art I create. To be adventerous and new while holding space for everyone in your heart.
