The Work of Ryan Doan

Ryan Doan is a busy guy. Not only is he an editor and production associate for the magazine Weird N.J., he's also a prolific artist specializing in imagery both bizarre and macabre.

His work, which has appeared in my own books, Weird Texas and Weird Arizona, is a seductive fusion of photography and illustration that captures the dark beauty of legendary people and places.
