ECCC MONSTERS AND DAMES ARTWORK by JayFosgitt
ECCC MONSTERS AND DAMES ARTWORK
I will be a guest at this year's Emerald City Comic Con. Subsequently, I submitted artwork for the con's annual art book--this year, titled "Monsters and Dames"--the sales from which go to charity. My work has been chosen to be featured among many other fantastic artists. You can see my piece here. I based my concept on an old, unfinished piece that I posted on DA back in 2011 WORK IN PROGRESS by JayFosgitt.

MY LITTLE BODIE by JayFosgitt
MY LITTLE BODIE
Green Brain Comics www.greenbrain.biz/ in Dearborn, Michigan is having me back to their shop for Free Comic Book Day (May 2nd), so they commissioned me to draw some promo art for the event! Seeing how I draw "Bodie Troll" and am one of the artists on the "My Little Pony" comic, this pairing was bound to happen sooner or later!

PROFESSOR TRELAWNY by JayFosgitt
PROFESSOR TRELAWNY
A piece I drew for Mouseguard creator David Petersen's Harry Potter art collection of Professor Trelawny, Harry and Hermione. I based my designs on whatever descriptions I picked up from the books, rather than the movies. Trelawny was said to have thick glasses and wore a shawl. The books describe the students wearing cloaks, which I took as meaning capes. And Hermione was said to have bushy hair and buck teeth, all of which gave me a lot of fun visuals to play with.

MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC #29 COVER by JayFosgitt
MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC #29 COVER
Not sure if it's common knowledge here on DA, but besides being the creator of the "Bodie Troll" comic book for Red 5 Comics, I'm also one of the artists on the "My Little Pony" comics for IDW. This is the second cover I did, both drawn and colored by me. I also drew the interiors. This issue hits stores on March 25th.

I was in a bad car wreck this weekend, due to the negligence of another driver. I walked away relatively unscathed, but my car, which I just bought two months ago, was totaled. That car was what was going to get me to conventions this year, so it's a big loss for me, and I'm scrambling to replace it. As such, I'm opening a special commission drive to cover the cost. You can read about it here. Thanks for at least considering it.

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!

Thank you! And working with Ted has been ideal--he gives suggestions about how he'd like the art to look, but gives me a free hand to interpret things myself!

I don't remember if you remember doing this piece seanrm.deviantart.com/art/Kame… 's lineart, but I'm glad you did. It's one of my favorite cartoonists (you) and one of my favorite super heroes (Kamen Rider) in one place. I don't know if you've gained any familiarity with Kamen Rider or Kikaider since then, but fans of them like me appreciate it anyways.
