Creative Genius Produces Dark And Cynical Comics With Unexpected Endings


Channelate is a webcomic produced by Ryan Hudson out of Salt Lake City, UT. The cartoons are an eclectic mix of the absurd and dark, and are guaranteed to have you in stitches.

If you are a fan of The Simpsons and South Park, then these are the comics for you. “I was inspired South Park a ton,” Ryan said. “I look up to Trey Parker and Matt Stone a lot. I had been a huge Simpsons fan as a kid and when South Park first aired, it blew my mind. It was my kind of humor. Something I hadn’t seen anywhere else.”

According to Ryan: “I don’t make my entire living from Channelate, but it has opened a lot of doors. In a lot of ways the comic has been my demo reel and resume. I’ve worked on some amazing freelance projects that wouldn’t have happened if not for my comic. But it was only a couple of years ago that I partnered up with Chase Suddarth to make Channelate animated. It was definitely challenging in some of the technical ways, but the writing and the art were very second nature, since it was all the kind of thing I had been doing with the comic. I learned a LOT about making web animation by working for Cyanide and Happiness on the first few seasons of their animated show. After watching their videos for a decade, it was amazing to be able to be working under the hood. It was a lot of on-the-job training that I will be putting to use on my own work for ever.”
