: Hello there! I don't know if you'll remember, since I know aa can be super busy, but I bought a few of your prints at Sakuracon the other day. I wasn't sure where one came from, so you recommended the show (Luther) and wrote it on one of your business cards for me. I just wanted to let you know that I watched the first few episodes, and absolutely adore it and Alice. Thank you so much for the rec!
AWESOME. I DO remember you; thank you so much for stopping by! I’m glad you’re liking Luther!
I actually printed the year-old Alice fanart as kind of a filler because I had so little to bring with me. It ended up being a great choice because quite a few people in addition to yourself asked where she was from, and one girl actually recognized her!
(Watch BBC’s Luther, guys!)
: Aw man! I was at Sakuracon, but I didn't know you were there until now. D'oh! Will you possibly be boothing at any future cons?
I knew I should have said something on tumblr earlier! I don’t think I’ll be boothing at any more cons this year, but I’ll be attending TCAF, AX probably, and SDCC. I definitely plan on tabling at Sakuracon next year, hopefully in the Small Press section. I’ve got plans for original stuff I want to get done by then…
One minute and some seconds is a reeeally short time, so Brianne and Ben had to do some actual (editing) magic when it came time to put the Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld animatics and final shorts together. Here is a shot from the end of the seventh short that was cut for time. Fans of the original comic might be able to take a guess at who those badly-drawn backs belong to…
I grabbed some letraset markers before leaving for Seattle and yesterday I had waaaay too much fun drawing ~*~*animu Adventure Time*~*~ at Sakura-Con.
If I draw more today I will probably post them on Instagram (@jab123). I am selling these and other sketch cards for $10 this weekend, so if you want ‘em come and get ‘em!
Right now I’m gonna get some Biscuit B**ch before the hall opens. :9
I’ll be in the Artist Alley at Sakura-Con this weekend! Work’s been kicking my butt and I just got over a nasty sinus infection (still chasing the last of it out, to be honest), but I’m excited to visit Seattle again. I’ll be tabling with some friends—no new stuff to show (see work, sinus infection), but I’ll have some old postcard prints and I’ll probably take a few sketch commissions if anybody wants one. Come say hi!
Artist Alley Tables 200, 202, and 204!
The above was going to be the freshmen team visiting the Space Needle… but work, sinus infection… :’)
Amethyst, Level 7: Welcome Home
and Ben Jones,
the DC Nation shorts producer awesome dude that made sure this didn’t explode and melt into goo.
This is the last Amethyst short! :D
Media, Descriptions For New Episodes Of “Green Lantern: The Animated Series,” “Young Justice,” DC Nation (SPOILERS)
The Amethyst short I storyboarded will air during the DC Nation block this weekend! I’m so grateful Brianne gave green-as-grass me the opportunity; I had the best time. MAGICAL GIRLS
I also storyboarded like… the last ten seconds of this weekend’s Young Justice? Yep. Also did the usual revisions with Naz, plus the help of Kat and I think the whole fleet of revisionists. It’s a pretty crazy ep. Talks will be had! Punches will be thrown! People will run fast! We’re almost at the end!
Two of these things are not like the others…
Here are some of the sketch covers I did at #ECCC! Thanks to everyone who stopped by, thank you to all the amazing professionals and awesome artists who put up with my questionable conversational skills and croaky singing voice, and thank you to BOOM! Studios for having me! Seattle is a super cool city and I was happy to visit it again.
Movies I saw in 2012! I saw… a lot, for me. I bolded my favorites; the rest I mostly liked, a few I wish I’d saved money and time on. I hope you guys had a fun year filled with great entertainment! I think I did.
I may be late on this but has anyone else noticed the female bands/female fronted bands homages Marceline and The Scream Queens covers make?
:D It was Marceline/AT comics editor Shannon's idea and I just about flipped some tables when she sent me a list of suggested covers. (Meredith did the Blondie SDCC exclusive cover, which is totally one of my favorites!)
Stress-relief doodle. Animu? Animu!
I saw some really neat fanart of Ralph with a portal gun, and then I guess this happened?
I’m pretty sure GLaDOS would be missing the “dangerous, mute lunatic” immediately.
Marceline and the Scream Queens #5 is out Wednesday, Nov. 14th! Pick it up for more awesomeness from Meredith Gran, PLUS a backup comic by the incredible Polly Guo.
I don’t have a sketch for this one, but you might notice that the location of Marceline’s teethmarks had to be changed after my lineart was sent to Lisa Moore to color.
Weird to think that Adventure Time’s target demo was probably in utero or a sparkle in someone’s eye when this album came out…
So…some “totes whatever nbd” news breaking on Comics Alliance today. That’s right, my dudes…in January, I will editing the 6-ISSUE FIONNA & CAKE COMIC BOOK MINI-SERIES. Written and drawn by…wait for it…Natasha Allegri.
YES. THAT NATASHA ALLEGRI.
This is real. This is real life. I have not been this excited about showing something to you since we announced my sweet baby MARCELINE AND THE SCREAM QUEENS, written and drawn by Meredith “Wicked Rad” Gran. Which has its 4th issue out today, actually, featuring featuring back-up stories from Yuko, Ananth and Kate! Go down to your local comic shop! BUY IT. HUG IT. And then go back to your F&C daydreams.
Thank you so much for supporting the ADVENTURE TIME comic and getting us here. We’ll keep blowing your faces away in 2013. That’s no goal, girls and guys…that is a flippin’ PROMISE.
I drew this cover! I feel totally unworthy of being in any way attached to the awesomeness of this project! But I drew it! Colored again by the amazing Lisa Moore.
This will actually be my last cover for the foreseeable future—the dayjob’s been kicking my butt, and I figured it’d be best to bow out instead of sacrificing my (and possibly Shannon’s) sanity. This was a great cover to go out on. :) Thank you so much, Shannon and BOOM!, for the opportunity!
