06/09/2011  UPDATE!!!!

Incredibly, we received about 150 requests for commissions. Even though we were capping it off at 20, I've decided to honor all the requests. Details here: bootlegsketch.blogspot.com/201…

If you helped spread the word, or requested a commission, thank you very much! If you didn't get a chance to get in, please consider donating to the cause anyways: www.helpthecheerleader.com/


* * * * *


If you just want to get right to the specifics of the commissions, CLICK HERE.

The cause that I'm raising money for is www.helpthecheerleader.com/

From the site:
A Silsbee High School cheerleader took her school to court when they kicked her off the squad for refusing to cheer her own rapist.

The week of May 5, 2011 the Supreme Court refused to hear the case and is requiring her family pay the school $45,000 in legal fees.

We want to help – and we want to give you the opportunity to help too.
The less I say about it, the better, cause if I start talking about it, I'm just gonna get mad. Suffice it to say, this is utterly unacceptable, and if we can help, we should.

So for $20 bucks, you get a full color sketch from me and you help a good cause! And if you don't want a sketch from me, you can still donate to the site, that's cool too! Either way, please spread the word! Thank you!

Woah! I broke 15K pageviews, AND it looks like I just got my first Daily Deviation for my Simpsons/Futurama crossover pin-up:

Worlds Collide by jasonhohoho

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who has watched me, faved a piece, commented, llama-badged me, or even just dropped by to take a look at my gallery! I haven't had a chance to reply much because my dear old computer is on its deathbed, and my new computer doesn't arrive until next week. Once I'm all set up I'll get back to responding, and as promised, I will absolutely give a llama badge to everyone who gave one to me! :D

An EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA big thank you to :icontyrie2001: for suggesting my piece as a Daily Deviation, and to :iconrydi1689: for featuring the piece! I'm terribly honored to receive such attention.

Thanks again everyone, it really means a lot! :D :D :D

Oh no... :iconpeter-v-nguyen: kindly pointed out that there is further evolution beyond the Super Llama... Albino Llama, and Super Albino Llama? Plus the ultra rare Golden Llama? (I have yet to see one in "the wild")

Check it: :thumb159213293:

I guess my milestone was more like a milepebble!

I don't expect to reach the upper levels of Llamadom, but nonetheless--GIVE ME A LLAMA AND I'LL RETURN THE FAVOR! DO EET!!!



* * * * * * *


Who cares about page views? Or number of watchers or faves? Who cares how many Facebook friends or Twitter followers you have? The size of your paycheck, or how pretty/nice your girlfriend is? Meaningless.

Today I hit a true milestone...

      "Your Llama has been upgraded to a Super Llama."

DA-DA-DA-DAAA!

</zelda music>


THANKS FOR THE LLAMAS EVERYONE!!!

hello to the 3.5 people who read this journal and don't know me in real life.

just took a big old ART DUMP, so that my DA gallery is now caught up to my sketchblog. this year "Robotech Tuesdays" (or mondays if i get too impatient to wait) are going to be a regular feature, and i'm going to try and get back on my street fighter pics in addition to the usual random assault of he-man fan art and self-absorbed cartoons.

i got pretty busy last year after halloween and had to post a bunch of old art (from november thru mid-december) to my sketchblog in order to keep up with my 2-a-week goal. i'm not going to post that stuff here, but if you want to check it out, go here: bootlegsketch.blogspot.com/sea…

i'm going to streamline my DA gallery, and scrap some of the pieces that are either old, or a bit out of place, or that i'm not happy with... and if i don't like a piece AND it has no favorites, i'm going to delete it altogether (everything will remain archived at my sketchblog however).

lastly, yes, i am now one of THEM. a twittererer. follow my hi-larious hi-jinx, won't you? my screen name is jasonhohoho

hope everyone got through the first month of 2010 in one piece and is ready to keep kicking ass for the rest of the year/century/millenium/eon.

I don't often rave about some new favorite that I stumble upon here on Deviant Art, mostly because usually hundreds (if not thousands) have already favorited anything I happen to like. But here's a rare instance of someone who hasn't got a lot of attention:

Check out :iconsynthezoide:, in particular this bad-ass piece: New York After Disaster by synthezoide

Thundarr, Planet of the Apes, and Kamandi??? WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?

It's criminal that he doesn't have more pageviews! And for the record--I don't know him at all, :iconjazylh: just pointed him out to me, and I was blown away.

Well, it seems the prolific young Joshua has become very difficult to keep up with recently--last week the third and final issue of his series Overlook hit stores.

Overlook is a gritty noir tale for mature readers written by Joshua Williamson, with art by :iconalearagon:. The cover for #3 (below, left) is drawn by Ale with colors by :iconillgnosis:. All three issues are available now (covers for #1 and #2 are shown below, right).



And what's this? DC comics is soliciting a Justice League of America 80-Page Giant which includes a story written by the same Joshua Williamson? And it also features a story written by yet another pal, :icondfridolfs:? And it's on sale September 30th, for $5.99?



Excellent work gentlemen--can't wait to read it!

I'm very excited--Dear Dracula, a 48-page hardcover children's book, published by Image Comics, and created by my dear friends, Josh and Vinny, will be available for purchase this Wednesday (October 15, 2008)! If you can't find it at your local comic book shop or book store, you might try Amazon.com.

The book tells the story of a funny kid named Sam, who's obsessed with Dracula, and decides to write him a letter--honestly folks, a fantastic all-ages book, especially for the Halloween season.

In honor of this momentous occasion, I was inspired to cook up a little Dear Dracula fan art:

Josh is at it again--this time it's the Necessary Evil trade paperback, collecting the first five issues, and clocking in at 128 pages. Written by Josh, with art by Marcus L. Harris, Vinny Navarrete, and J.C. Grande. And it also happens to have a three pager that I might have mentioned before. Here's a look at the cover, by Marcus and Vinny:



It's out Wednesday, July 9, so go support your local comic book store and buy a copy! Right now! Or order it online!

Josh and Vinny have got an all-ages book coming out from Shadowline and Image Comics later this year, and there's an interview about it at Newsarama, along with some great preview art. The book is titled Dear Dracula, and tells the story of a weird kid who decides to write a letter to Dracula instead of Santa Claus. I had the opportunity to read Dear Dracula in advance of its release, and now I'm really looking forward to seeing it in stores. But, in the words of Levar Burton, don't take my word for it--check out the interview and the preview art!

Dear Dracula is available in the July edition of Previews catalog from Diamond Comics (you can find it on page 160 of Previews and the order code is jul08 2222). It'll hit stores in September, just in time for the Halloween season--ask your local comic book store to order it. And after you do that, be sure to check out Dear Dracula on Myspace!
