The Real Life: Summer Reading Assignment

The Real Life comic strip is created by 15-year-old Ryan Hayes of Rockwall. Ryan will be a sophomore at Wylie Preparatory Academy, and he’s an active member of First Baptist Church Rockwall.

“I have always loved to draw and make goofy characters, and I just recently got into cartooning,” said Ryan.
