Rob Ryan Film via Etsy

07Mar12

This is a nice film from the team at the Etsy Blog

Artist Rob Ryan‘s studio is located in a cozy nook in Bethnal Green, London. He and his band of merry helpers spend their days paper-cutting fantastic worlds of love, friendship and longing. It’s hard not to feel an emotional response toward Rob Ryan’s work: it’s timeless in its approach and includes positive missives like “Believe in People” and “Our Adventure Is About to Begin.” What could be a greater way to celebrate the world than acknowledging the beauty in the everyday?

Rob Ryan grew up in a military family, moving from town to town as a child. Drawing was his companion. Even today he prefers to work in isolation, with a small group of assistants and his family not far away. He doesn’t need much: just his favorite pencils, some good paper and groovy records spinning in the studio. It’s this environment that allows his love of the world to know no bounds.

Rob’s latest work, A Sky Full of Kindness, is the first children’s book that he has written and illustrated, chronicling a group of birds as they overcome their fears of the world. Fireworks, songs, and nests play integral parts of the journey toward becoming the kind of people we ought to be: kind, helpful, and generous.
