About Me

Hello. My name is Ryan, and I drew “Ball With Hat”. I’m not a professional, but I hope that my little illustrations kept you entertained every day. I started this comic on the first day of 2011 and updated daily until May 15, 2012.

Ball With Hat is an exploration of what makes the world interesting. Our main character, the Ball, explores monuments, art and history, but always finds himself back at home by the end of the day. He never speaks, but you can get to know him in other ways. The Sunday comics feature a more linear plot and a colorful style.

I have a few people to thank for inspiration and help along the way. You may have noticed that the titular Ball is similar to characters from Nifflas’s games. I didn’t directly pull the ball from them, but if you have never played Nifflas’s games, I recommend them highly — you can check out his website here. Further thanks goes to my brother, Andrew, who designed the website. The website itself was made with WordPress and built off of the WP Framework theme.
