Sword & Stairs

Adventure Time: The Enchiridion is out today… I drew/colored the cover! Buy it from any fine purveyor of DVDs and home video entertainment! Tell them I sent you! They won’t have any idea what that means, but tell them that anyways.

Here’s a look at the full wraparound cover without any logos or text…

Amongst everything else that’s been going on, I also managed to squeeze another side gig in…

I drew penciled/inked/colored a wraparound cover for an Adventure Time DVD: The Enchiridion! This illustration is also going to be a variant cover for Adventure Time #45 from Boom! Studios. The DVD is out on October 7th (next Tuesday!).

About this blog, Tumblr, Star Trek, and everything. (NOT THAT ANYONE ASKED)

Okay so… obviously I can’t just start blogging again like nothing ever happened. I’ve been absent for a kajillion years! And I’m sure you, theoretical dear reader, noticed and were concerned. Nobody wants my life story, so I’ll break this down in brief bullet points:

  •  To summarize, I have been drawing and working on stuff, just been too busy and lazy to post it here!
  •  Feb 2014: My pal Dafna and I co-edited a Star Trek zine, which we released at last year’s LA Zine fest. It’s called TO BOLDLY ZINE. We sold out but you can download a free digital version HERE.
  • Dafna and I were somehow able to beg/plead/blackmail a lot of our talented Trek-nerd friends into contributing, so you really should check it out. Here’s what the zines looked like, cover designed and handcut by me:



  • Click on the pic below if you want a peek at the making of the zine:



  • One of the features in the zine was a series of tweets written by Mike McMahan AKA @TNG_S8 and illustrated by me. Here are some of them:



  • Mike dug my work and asked me to illustrate the officially-licensed-by-Star-Trek-for-reals book version of his tweets, which is the main non-day-job thing that I worked on in this year. More on that soon!



  • “But Jason, you posted stuff in 2014 AFTER the zine, why no mention of it?!” I’m glad you asked that, imaginary blog reader! Basically, we had completely sold out of the zine, so there was nothing to promote! But if you were following me on Twitter or Instagram, you got the full shameless plug barrage leading up to the zine fest.
  • Feb 2015: Dafna and I co-edited a second volume of TO BOLDLY ZINE, which we released at this year’s LA Zine Fest. We still have some copies left, if you’re interested, check back here (or my various social media, see the links to the right) for details! In the meanwhile, here are some looks at the AWESOME cover, designed by Dafna (btw those are Dafna’s hands, my nail polish is much more flamboyant):


  • Mike and I collaborated for the zine again, this time on a children’s story about Data:


  • And, I started a Tumblr (yes finally)! This was my first post:


  • To clear up any confusion about the various ways I post art, this blog and my deviantArt will always be where I post finished artwork (fan art, side-jobs, and personal projects). Instagram is where I post sketches and behind-the-scenes looks at process (including stuff from ye olde dayjobbe). And tumblr will be a combination of finished works, instagram crossposts, and some best-of moldy oldies (since I’m new to tumblr and nobody knows wtf I am and wtf I’m doing there).

OKAY I’m gonna try not to be a big baby and start posting regularly again. SEE Y’ALL THEORETICAL READERS BACK HERE REAL SOON Y’ALL.

For Stan and Sharon

From Comic Book Resources:

Dark Horse will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo with the release in July of the oversized hardcover benefit book The Sakai Project: Artists Celebrate Thirty Years of “Usagi Yojimbo.” All proceeds will go to Stan and Sharon Sakai.

Sharon Sakai suffers from a debilitating illness that required an extended hospital stay and convalescence, and while she’s now back home, she requires 24-hour care and medications that exceed their insurance coverage. The Comic Art Professional Society, which spearheaded an earlier fundraiser for the Sakais, is working in conjunction with Dark Horse to produce the book.

I got to do a piece for The Sakai Project, which is a real honor. My original art is up for auction right now, and all of the proceeds from the auction will go to Stan and Sharon as well. Check out the auction HERE. The auction ends April 27th, but don’t delay–bid early, bid often, and spread the word! It’s for a good cause!

Here’s a look at my original art:

And here’s the colored version that will go in the book:

Happy New Year = More Unicorns + Gore

If you’ll recall, I posted a couple of unicorns + gore a few months ago. Well, I’ve been steadily drawing more since then, so here are 8 more to ring in the New Year. Click for larger views of each piece:

These were drawn in marker at various sizes, just based on whatever random cardboard scraps were lying around (the smallest is 3×3″ and the largest is 12×12″). The unicorn in the second row, on the left, is an exception–it was drawn on normal paper and colored digitally.

I hate to let a good piece of cardboard go to waste. That aside, I don’t really know what’s motivated me to draw these… but I have more cardboard, and I can feel more unicorns looming. Appropriate for the impending Year of the Horse, perhaps?

I had a somewhat long piece of glossy paper, so I decided to draw something with Sharpies. Thus, Psylocke:

Elf Esteem

This pose is pretty much a cheap rip-off of my previous post. But my holiday wishes for you, Dear Reader, are sincere… Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Work smarter, not harder!

This was drawn as a gift for my pal Josh, but I wanted to try something a little different from what I usually do. I don’t ink with a brush pen all that often, and I almost never draw profile views or stick strictly to black & white/gray tones. The pose and posh attitude are, of course, influenced by the New Yorker’s mascot. Overall, I think it works?

(The title of this post is my and Josh’s favorite Scrooge quote from Ducktales. It’s a pretty good piece of advice too!)

On very rare occasions, I can be coaxed into providing artistic favors! It helps if it’s something I want to draw!

I have probably seen every episode of I Love Lucy… at least 5 times? I wouldn’t be surprised if it was closer to 10. *FLEX*

Finn the Prime and Jake the ‘Bee!

My twitter pal (and talented wordsmith) @DelilahSDawson asked for my help coming up with a Christmas present for her husband (also my twitter pal & fellow Transformer fanatic) @DocKrog. When she told me the concept, ADVENTURE PRIME, I was all, “WHAAAAAT”

Here’s what I came up with:


This was such a fun concept to flesh out, and a surprisingly fitting mash-up. Plus I got to try out the new WHITE pen I bought at the J-market/stationary store. I used it for the highlights on Jake’s arm/hand and for the Autobot symbol on Finn’s arm.

Fun fact: I no longer know how to end blog posts.

Got my eye on you…

Occasionally when I do toy sales/trades with internet folks, I’ll throw a quick sketch in the parcel just for larfs. This was one such sketch, a Glyos Syclodoc ‘repainted’ in the colors of a certain garish toy from the early 90′s

Draw… SOMETHING (X-mas edition)

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! This is my final Draw Something post… unless I start playing again.

But don’t bail on me just yet! I’ll be posting plenty of ROBUST drawings over the next two-plus weeks. Expect a ‘real’ Christmas post early next week, more UNICORNS (like these), plus other assorted nerdery, as you might expect from me.

Draw… SOMETHING (my favorite edition)

Of the many Draw Somethings I produced, this is my favorite.

BY THE WAY, for those who care, I am well aware that these Draw Something frivolities are, at best, ‘lite’ content. More robust posts are on the way! And by “on the way” I mean, like, actually finished and scanned! Stay tuned!

Draw… SOMETHING (YO JOE! edition)

At some point I started doing nothing but GI Joe-themed Draw Somethings. I’m probably more proud of this than I should be.
