A gentleman panhandler. One of the pioneers of Canadian animation. Oscar nominee. Poor beggar. An artist unable to create. God observing the world. Fallen angel. Arrogant. Shy. Broken. Not destroyed. Ryan hovers between animation and documentary, and defies easy definition. Ryan Larkin who produced some of the most influential animated films of his time today lives on welfare and panhandles in Montreal. How could such an artistic genius follow this path?
