visual FX

Welcome to the website of Ryan Leasher, VFX artist, animator, and author.

Check out the VFX and Animation links for my latest demo reels with work from films such as Avatar, Meet the Robinsons and Shark Tale. And be sure to pick up Diablo III from Blizzard on May 15th to see some of my recent cinematic work.

See examples of my digital restoration of the 1962 animated film Icarus Montgolfier Wright in the Film Restoration section.

Flip to the Books section to see Joseph Mugnaini’s amazing artwork from my book Wilderness of the Mind, the biography and cataloguing of the great American artist and teacher.

Go for a ride in the Philanthropy section to find out how I raised over $15,000 for the Dylan Fitzgerald Carlton Scholarship Fund at Kent State University by riding a stage of the Tour de France.
