Hi, glad you decided to learn more about Mandrake Creative Co.
Oh sorry, I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Ryan Law. It's so nice to meet you!
I'm a 29-year-old who is so very happily married, to the most intelligent and beautiful women, living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I like video games and movies. But the most important thing about me is I'm a creator.
Mandrake Creative Company actually started life as J. Ryan Law Design at the end of 2016.
The road to Mandrake Creative Co. is kind of long so I'll sum it up for you.
I graduated with a BFA. Got laid off from a good creative job. Worked dead-end jobs. Couldn't find work with another creative company. Got really bad anxiety. Found out working for others caused a lot of my anxiety. Started J. Ryan Law Design. Freelance work is not what I want to do. Want to build a creative business that's different from the others…
And you're pretty much caught up.
Right now Mandrake Creative Co. is just a small seed I hope will grow and mature into something great someday.
My life is fueled by creating. Not only do I like creating, I need it.
I want Mandrake Creative Co. to be a place full of people who need to create.
My goal is not to be the next Disney or Pixar. I don't want to be tied down somewhere for 40 to 60 hours a week. And I don't want to do that to anyone else.
I want the ability to create where and when I want. And I want to give that lifestyle to others.
Right now Mandrake Creative Co. is a small shop that makes cool framed prints, I think they are cool anyway, and a sketch blog.
It makes very little money at the moment. But I'm doing my best to grow this little two manned, thanks to the wifey, company into something far greater than me.
