I do storyboards for animation and make weird faces
Orange is the New Black is so good, I am only two episodes in and it’s like, women!! INCREDIBLE WOMEN!! (IN PRISON!!)
Also Dascha Polanco is really pretty, wow.
SDCC Shenanigans: 
If I’m in the area, I’ll be attending the Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox premiere on Friday at 7:30pm. Directed by Jay Oliva and executed by a lot of awesome colleagues and friends of mine, it boasts a truly ridiculous voice cast (Nathan Fillion! Ron Perlman! Michael B. Jordan!!!) and animation by Studio 4C. It is a crazy spectacle of a superhero movie.
I’ll be doing Adventure Time sketch covers at the Kaboom! booth all day on Saturday and Sunday…
…though I may try to take an early break on Saturday to ninja over to the Young Justice Unofficial Reunion behind the convention center at 11AM.
I probably won’t be able to get away from the booth on Sunday, but the Beware the Batman Screening and Q&A is at 1pm. Producer and cool dude Glen Murakami will be there, along with a lot of other awesome people behind the show.
Besides those things I will probably be buying books, eating, and dealing poorly with the massive amounts of people everywhere forever oh god. Please feel free to say hi! (Maybe give me a gentle pat on the head if I’m huddled in a corner breathing into a paper bag. Or a whisky. Whisky > physical contact. Actually don’t pat me on the head, I’ll react badly. Whisky or a friendly smile, please.)
Have a great weekend!
Doodle break at work while listening Q.U.E.E.N. I didn’t look up reference so it’s kind of Janelle Monae? Ish? Maybe?
Monday.
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… :’)

Jen ‏@workworkpartyYJ was my first job in animation. I was one of two storyboard revisionists, and it was the best intro to the industry ever. #SaveYJandGLTASI’ve still got loads of silly doodles on old script pages and print-outs. #SaveYJandGLTAS (Eduardo’s scarf is my fave!)

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.
