Ryan Keats is the artist behind ADHDinos and has been transforming his personal experiences with ADHD into a webcomic that resonates with many people worldwide. After being diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, Ryan felt isolated until he discovered a supportive online community. This connection inspired him to start ADHDinos, a comic series that humorously and insightfully depicts the everyday challenges of living with ADHD. The comics began as a list of struggles Ryan faced, which he then turned into relatable and entertaining stories that help others feel seen and understood. As Ryan puts it, “I think the real value of the comics is the small nuggets of information contained within them.”

Since its inception, ADHDinos has become a vital resource for those dealing with ADHD, providing not only laughter but also valuable insights. Ryan’s journey of self-discovery and acceptance through his comics has encouraged many to seek their diagnoses and better understand their behaviors. He proudly shares, "I’ve almost lost count of people who said that they sought out a diagnosis because of the comics. That’s really cool to me."

Ryan shared with Bored Panda that the comic started as a list of the tendencies he hoped to address. "The comics began as a self-reflection on how ADHD has affected me, so nearly all the ideas stem from struggles I’ve experienced."


The design for Dino, Ryan explained, is inspired by doodles he used to draw in the margins of his schoolwork. "He was loved by many teachers," the artist recalls.

Regarding his readers' reactions, Ryan said the feedback for the series has been amazing. "It seems like a lot of people can really relate to these issues and enjoy discussing them openly."

“I have several hundred new ideas in my notes and it’s climbing far faster than I’m using them. Sometimes if I feel a comic isn’t up to par, I end up just tumbling it through the drafts for a while until I either delete it or improve upon it somehow.”

Ryan said that some comics come really quickly, others change a lot from draft to finished comic. "It’s a little unpredictable, but some translate really well to paper while others don’t. On the other hand, some comics that start as a little lackluster stumble into a single change which makes them among my favorites."
