Ryan Kramer, aka "Toonhole Ryan" is a cartoonist, comic artist and "just a guy trying to enjoy life and not get too fat." He creates funny illustrations that feature ridiculous, unexpected and sometimes dark situations and that can offer a good laugh.

The artist has been self-publishing humor comics and animation on the internet since 2010 and he co-runs a website called "Toonhole" with 3 of his friends, on which he releases new comics weekly. Besides that, the artist also is a director of Looney Tunes at Warner Bros.

Ryan told Bored Panda that he likes animating cartoons, but they take too long to create. "Comics are a quicker way to tell a joke or story. I started making them with my pals and we were stoked about making each other laugh. I also really enjoy the process of trying to capture a funny idea and all the stages of bringing it into comic format."

Ryan revealed that his journey as a comic artist started in high school when he used to draw comics to make fun of his friends. Combine that with his love of cartoons and a cartoonist was born!

In college, Ryan met John, Chris and Mike, who shared the same love for old cartoons and similar drawing sensibilities. The friends teamed up and created Toonhole - a crew of cartoonists and professional animation artists who, according to their description, "crudely draw really really realllyy dumb stuff in their free time."

From time to time, artists face some challenges when doing creative work. For Ryan, the most challenging part of the creative process is trying to find a joke/idea worth capturing. However, "it is very rewarding finding it and translating it from your mind to paper." The second most rewarding part for the artist is holding the finished piece (if it's done traditionally). "It also feels good if it goes viral and people respond well to it," Ryan added.

We got curious whether Ryan ever feels burned out by doing creative work. The artist shared that he doesn't really feel too burned out with what he does. "Sometimes I can pile too much on my plate, but I try not to bite off more than I can chew."

Fun fact, the commandments say we shouldn’t worship worldly objects, so that’s another level of things she is doing wrong if she is a devote Christian as it appears /s Okay there’s a lot of hate down there so let me clarify It’s a joke, and I never meant to say she was worshiping the statue. I am a 13 year old practicing Medodist and I was trying to be funny in my own way. Sorry if I offended anyone I considered deleting this comment but I’m going to leave it up and give you this disclaimer

Just saw a picture of a bear mauling a bunch of cute animals and a dude getting his brains blown out. But penis... That's where we draw the line.

Hm, probably kids wouldn't eat play-doh if they didn't make it smell like food.
