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.

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!

Just wanted to give you props on the Mlp comic - that was SO cute! Hope you'll do more in the future ^^
(Minor crit that you'll probably get a lot: Background environments could be more in tune with the show. Don't know how much reference material you were given.)

heh, for some reason, even though i'd seen your work before, i didn't think to connect the mlp stuff with your name, even though your name was on the cover (i'm really bad with names :D)
looking forward to reading the issue!

You truly have earned all the success you've achieved.  You must have had a long art study to have gotten to this threshold of talent.  If only I could pick your brain and see what makes you tick X3
