Wow. Your artistic style has such energy to it. That even when the characters are standing still you can see motion and personality in it.

I'd love to have a commission done by you sometime.

i really love your cartoon style, very cartoony and unique 

i'm kinda wondering how you get such smooth lines on paper with ink

Thanks! It's 99% practice, 1% drawing tools--I ink with Japanese brush pens, which have a lot of control, but also have a lot of fluidity of line and ink coverage.

Hey, Jay, are you a Seinfeld fan? Because I need some assistance for a special series of drawings I'm doing for the show's 25th anniversary next year.

If you're not, that's fine. I'm asking other deviants if they're fans as well.

I liked the show--but I'm probably a bit too busy to contribute.

Perfectly understandable, Jay. If you ever DO get some freetime, just message me & we'll talk.

Jay, you're not too busy right now, are you? I need to ask you some sort of "opinion/suggestion" question.

There's this T-shirt contest that WeLoveFine is doing based on Sesame Street. www.toughpigs.com/welovefine-s… You can submit your own original artwork design to be made onto an actual T-shirt. It has special judges; Muppeteers Carol Spinney (Big Bird & Oscar) & David Rudman (Baby Bear, current Cookie Monster, Miss Poogy, current Richard Hunt characters). First prize is a choice between either $2000 in cash or a trip to the Sesame set in NYC. The final say to post your submissions is 12/03/2013

I've already submitted 4 designs & I have one left. (5 designs is the limit) I'd like to do one featuring one (or more of) of the human characters muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Sesame_S…, since most Sesame shirts just have the Muppets (mostly Cookie, Elmo & Oscar). Only problem is I don't know which human to highlight.

I know you're maybe the wrong person to ask since you do more of fanfics than fanart, but you are an S.S. fan so I thought I'd ask. So, in your opinion, what/who Sesame human character do you think would be a creative T-shirt?

(Sorry for the late reply. Busy working on one of my family's Christmas traditions in the garage.)

Gordon is the most iconic, since he's bald.

You're responsible for the Bodie Troll comics? My boyfriend and I loved those things and we're both in our late twenties. My boyfriend shares many different comic books with me, and while we both like a lot of darker toned comics--it's nice to find a funny, adorable comic to read for a change of pace once in a while.

Yes, I'm the creator of Bodie Troll, and thank you so much for your kind words! When I started off in comics, my work was pretty adult in it's humor, and very dark. When that comic ran its course, I wanted to do something...warmer...something funny and sweet and fun that would appeal to everybody. Judging from the wonderful messages like yours that I receive, I feel like I'm on the right track!

Just so you know, the first Bodie Troll trade paperback comes out in February, collecting the first four issues of Bodie Troll, as well as lots of cool special features. There will then be an all new Bodie story in Red 5's Free Comic Book Day issue in May. After that, I'll be working on an all new Bodie Troll mini series, which I'm really looking forward to!

Thanks again for writing--your letter made my day!

You're very welcome. At first I was sad that it appeared to be only a miniseries--but once I read on that last page what was to come in the future--more Bodie--I was very happy! Keep up the good work.
