Hi! I’m Emily.

I am a Swede living in Los Angeles. I draw children’s books, comics and infographics. My style is playful and clear, with a manga flavour.

I am currently on maternity leave and will be back to illustrating in the summer of 2024. If you have any future projects you want to discuss before then, please drop me a line and let’s talk!

I made a webcomic called Corner Alley 13 which I still kind of like. My current project is the fantasy adventure Gramarye.

I made the graphics for a few games, among others: Secret Agent Cinder.

Formal stuffz: I have a bachelor’s degree in Media and Communication from Stockholm University and went to Hyper Island. I also studied two years of Storytelling and Sequential Art at Högskolan i Gävle.


Get in touch



Highly recommended!

We have contracted Emily Ryan to produce the art for two of our board game projects, Bushido Duels and our upcoming Perilous Pond and she has delivered stunning art on both occasions. Emily Ryan is easy to work with and has an uncanny ability to grasp what we are trying to achieve. She also has the midas touch where she can offer suggestions that improve on your initial concept that has the potential to improve your planned concept even further. Both times working with her were great collaborative experiences that resulted in tremendous art for our projects and we could not be any happier with the result and the experience of working with Emily. She is an exceptional artist with a great eye for details and a broad artistic range. We highly recommend her for your next project!
