Ryan Shimek – Indie Comic Creator/Fantasy Author
Ryan, originally from San Antonio, Texas, has been enlisted in the USAF since 2007. He has been stationed at Barksdale AFB, Louisiana, Lackland AFB, Texas, Chievres AB, Belgium, and is currently stationed at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.
Ryan found a love for writing and story telling at a young age, but it wasn’t until later in life that it became a passion of his. After toying around with a few short stories, he finally buckled down and released his debut novel, The Manifestation of Light. Since then, life has gotten in the way and has slowed down his creative process.
That said, he recently discovered the world of indie comics and dove head first into the field. He spends most of his free time researching, picking the brains of other creators, reading their works, learning the art of comic coloring, and writing scripts. He hopes to become a recognizable name in the indie community while publishing stories that relate to a wide audience.
