Ryan M. Cairns is a writer and artist residing in Southeast Michigan. He has the word ‘basta’ tattooed down his spine. In Italian the word means ‘finished.’ He’d taken that word as his mantra when he decided he was finished going along with the crowd, finished not listening to his muse, finished not pursuing life to the fullest. After a six-year break from drawing he started up again and life has never been better. He’s working on multiple projects for multiple publishers. He lives with his beautiful wife and two amazing and crazy kids.
