Bodie's Gonna Kick It Root Down... by JayFosgitt
Bodie's Gonna Kick It Root Down...
...because he eats roots. Obviously.

There's a "Straight Outta Compton" meme going around Facebook, where people can put their own pics in there and change the name from Compton to whereever they live. I decided to do one with Bodie and the village of Hagadorn, where he's the resident thug (or so he'd like people to believe).

A tribute piece I made in honor of Sonia Manzano, performer of Maria, retiring from Sesame Street. This is my favorite moment from the show with her, where she and David (Northern Calloway) taught Grover the difference from here and there.…

I was recently tasked with creating a poster to promote The Michigan Shakespeare Festival’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”–my favorite of all The Bard’s works. This poster was a lot of fun to create, and you can see some of my process on my Tumblr page:…

My commission from you of the Baroness is now up Baroness, by Jay Fosgitt by rudeboy308

I finally got my older printer/scanner and my Windows 10 to talk to each other.

I don't remember if I mentioned it yet, but I think your artistic efforts on the MLP franchise are absolutely fantastic.  I have a subscription to Friendship is Magic and Friends Forever for my daughter; I've been reading the books too.

In both series (FIM and FF), the art varies between good and excellent, and the stories vary between awful and excellent.  You've been fortunate to provide graphics for some of the better scripts, including the amusing wrestling vignette.  I hope we see more mares in the ring in future episodes.

So far your artistry has been stellar, some of the very best submitted for the franchise.  Your cartoonry is unique, yet works well with the house style, and is appealing, adorable, and powerful at the same time.  Which is amusing, because I never thought of you as a pony artist.

Keep up the great work.  We'd love to see more mare's tales as illustrated by Fosgitt.

I just got my Baroness commission sketch in today's mail.  Excellent work with the hottest of the women in the GI Joe series.  Lady Jaye is my #2 and quite possibly my next commission idea.

MAN! Your Kung-Fu skills in artworks are so epic!^_^

Thanks again for the sketch back at C4. I'm throughly impressed with your art style, and I am very amused with Bodie Troll so far.

One question... Where and how did you come up with the idea of Socko? The whole concept seems like something you really took your time to think of, and is so deeply amusing, I can't stop laughing...

From one fellow artist to another, Thank You, and keep it coming!!

Hi, Hunter!

I thought having a medieval equivalent to the modern, manic media machine we have in our world would be funny in Bodie. I thought doing a media machine in the form of a Punch and Judy type puppet show would make it even funnier, so I created Socko to report the most sensationalistic news through comedy and violence--not too removed from how we get our news now!

So you're an artist on the IDW MLP Comics? Cool! I'm looking forward to the Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon comic that's coming out in May! :D
KevinGibes Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I recently became aware of your work through the MLP comic, and I have to say I adore the expressiveness of your art! You inspire me, friend.

The way you draw ponies always makes me smile.

I got to read the TPB collection the first four issues of Bodie Troll.  Super work, like I knew it would be!
JayFosgitt Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015  Professional Artist
Awesome! Thanks!
rudeboy308 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015
I also just ordered the Dead Duck and Zombie Chick collection on Ape Comics.  Amazon has sellers with a starting price for that book at about $200!  (Go ahead, look for it there, and see if I'm lying!)  Like the Southern expression goes, askin' ain't gettin'!  

Ape Comics was about $16 total--a lot more reasonable.

By the way, not sure if DeviantArt gave you a notification, but I made a bit of fanart (of fanart, technically :D) for you. Cutest Mlp comic to date!
