There are a few people I respect and even less that I admire. Ryan Estrada is someone who impresses me. It’s not hard to figure out why considering everything he has done over the past five years and of course you ask why not do it yourself. Easy, no one else has the motivation or drive to complete a 168 hour comic, much less hop from job to job around the world. What’s he doing now? Well he’s an American doing customer service support in India. Yeah, I laughed for 15 minutes as well but he’s topping it off with two weeks of exploring which he is calling Ryan Estrada: Expeditions!
Here’s the catch though. This is not some planned itinerary he’s following from some book, but a planned itinerary from some loyal readers. Ryan took submissions from anyone who would send them and compiled them into a list of missions to accomplish. On top of that he’s taking his apparently waterproof camera with him and making a serious of mini documentaries. Gentlemen and ladies, this stuff is good. The video’s are displayed in 2:3 ratio which gives a sort of comic panel feel to it. The video is mixed with his own artwork and the composition of sound and music is done very well. Ryan has done so many things, and done them well, that I’m almost at the point that anything associate with the man has to be good.
Visit the new RyanEstrada v4.0 and see the past 5 shows. You’ll laugh, you’ll cringe, you might even shed a tear. I know I can’t wait to see what’s next. By the way, why hasn’t Phil said anything about this?
