The Inner Beast of Creativity: Ryan Woodward’s Art


It is a powerful experience to even begin to comprehend the passion behind Ryan Woodward’s art world.

” It’s one of those things that is tough to answer, when you ask an artist why they decide to become an artist.  There’s this inner beast of creativity that, for me personally, it will consume me to the point of being miserable if I don’t let it out and do something with it.”

To characterize him as being a successful artist is an understatement.  Accomplished is a better description to his work and his career as an animator and storyboard artist.  He’s been a mentor for students, he’s collaborated in blockbuster movies, and after all he’s done, there was still something, another great thing still waiting to be come to life.

Thought of you comes from a very personal place.  A longing for reconnecting with himself, his family, and the things that keep him moving.  It is a truly beautiful piece, that took a great amount of time and effort, but that turned out to be one of my favorites animated short films ever.

Don’t forget to also watch the making to get insights from the artist, and to get a better understand of the power of living a passionate life.
