JOIN THE JOURNEY


My name is Ryan and I've been creating animated cartoons since 2002 when I began FARToons Productions. I graduated college in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in animation. Over the years I have experimented with different kinds of animation and settled on a crappy style for many of my cartoons. Most of my work contains offensive adult humor as I am an advocate of free speech. Now and then I go a bit too far but that is all a part of the experimental journey; a journey I would like you to join with me.

I have created many web series over the years including my most popular Barney the Dinosaur parodies, McGruff the Crime Dog parodies and my original animated sitcom The Wish Fish Family. Other bigger creations include Senioritis and Merely Meerkats which are still in production.

I am looking for funding to keep FARToons going well into the future. Even if you donate as little as one dollar a month it is still helpful. Lately, I have been putting together weekly cartoons on my YouTube channel. I plan on releasing exclusive content right here on this page. Also expect a few treats in the mail now and then. You can help be a part of this fun and crazy adventure with donations that will help produce more cartoons, more often.



ABOUT ME

Ryan Wells fell in love with animation at an early age and knew he wanted to pursue a career in the field before he even entered kindergarten. By the age of five he had already begun creating his own original characters he fantasized would one day come to life.

In 2000 Ryan created the cheezy short story series “The Totally Fucked Up Adventures of Herman the Cheese Man”, about an all-American piece of Swiss cheese who had a disturbing poop fetish. In 2001 he quit writing Herman to work on his infamous audio sketch series Coach & Russell. This was Ryan’s first taste of fame, and he liked it. He would hear his fellow classmates quote his sketches as he walked down the high school halls. He kept the series running for two years before he quit to spend more time animating in Macromedia Flash.

In 2002 Ryan finished his first original animated cartoon entitled “Eye Can’t Make It”, which revolved around the cartoon cat he created in kindergarten. He continued making short cartoons in high school, including “Spike & Johny”, “Chef Bonerappetite”, and “ICEE the BIG PICTURE”. College led to more successful animated endeavors with a series of Barney the Dinosaur parodies and his first original web series The Wish Fish Family. In 2004 he completed an hour-long cartoon based on his comic book characters from Ostrich, Hippo & Jesus on Grass. Ryan has worked on over sixty animated cartoons using only his home computer since 2002 when he introduced FARToons to the world. He has also produced over one-hundred short live-action films using his digital video camera and Adobe Premiere.

In 2013 Ryan interned at Coolfire Studios in St. Louis, Missouri where he video logged for the Nickelodeon TV series “Mom Friends Forever”. He also worked on an animated pitch called Mitch and Tanner Save America! with Dian Bachar, Jason McHugh (“Cannibal! The Musical”, “Orgazmo”, “BASEketball”) and filmmaker Larry Longstreth of Eddy Spaghetti Productions.

Ryan has been developing an animated television series the past several years that he is currently pitching to networks. He has written a half-hour pilot script and over 90 episode storylines revolving around his original cast of characters.

Ryan graduated from Webster University with a bachelor’s degree in Animation, where he won several awards for his cartoons, videos and web site.
