Chell from PORTAL

Posted by Jonathan on Thursday Apr 21, 2011 Under Art

Portal 2 came out this week, and I’m a bit obsessed.

I tend to get a bit obsessed every time Valve makes a new game.  They’ve become masters at balancing good design, gameplay, and storytelling in their games.  I am also not ashamed to say I have a crush on every heroine they’ve created so far, Chell from Portal is no exception.

BONUS:

I had posted the initial sketch on Facebook a few days ago, thought people might dig seeing the original sketch vs the finished drawing.

Here is a Christmas comic I drew a few years ago starring Cedric from The Brickston Scooter Club series of comics. It’s become my own sort of “holiday special”, and I hope you enjoy it!

Merry Christmas!

HAPPY DAY OF THE…LEFT 4…DAWN OF THE…HMMM.

Posted by Jonathan on Monday Nov 1, 2010 Under Art

(UPDATE: Oops, forgot the baseball jersey stripes!  This is what happens when you sit on something for a year.  Picture corrected, and I also made it a little larger.)

Been a while since my last post, been working on some awesome stuff but unfortunately very little of it involves illustration.  That being said, this was a drawing I actually started last year which wasn’t finished in time for Halloween/Day of the Dead.  So I prettied it up, and got it DEAD-y  for y’all little ghouls today.

In case you’re wondering what’s going on…this is Zoey from the fantastic Left 4 Dead re-enacting my favorite shot from George A. Romero’s original Dawn of the Dead!

It’s a monster mash up!

Enjoy!  (click that link thumbnail to rise!)

Mrrrraaaaawwwwr

Boxer Comix Classics: “Patrick Swayze Must Be Destroyed”

Posted by Jonathan on Tuesday Sep 15, 2009 Under Comics

Unfortunately, Red Dawn/Ghost/Outsiders star, and all around pleasant chap, Patrick Swayze passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer.   So, this may seem a little inappropriate to post, but I actually think it’s a fun comic and may serve as bit of an odd tribute to the eldest Wolverine.

Originally created around 2003, this comic was commissioned for a zine that never actually ended up getting printed.  The originals are rumored to have been eaten by a dog, so this remained my great “lost” comic for many years.  Until last year, that is, when I was digging through a bunch of old artwork and found these fairly decent photocopies of the original pages!  They seem to have been made before the story was finished, pencil marks are still visible as are a few errors.  But alas, it’s the best version that exists, and the story has been without an audience for too many years.

The story was based off a joke one of the magazines editors made about Patrick Swayze’s face looking like a “cheap Halloween costume”.  I was asked to create the story around that joke, which I have to admit I thought was pretty funny.  Not wanting to be totally cruel, I decided to make it more of a Mad magazine style send up, and even have Mr. Swayze coming out on top (literally) at the end.

So here it is, ladies and gentlemen, PATRICK SWAYZE MUST BE DESTROYED!

Boxer Comix Classics: Esperanza’s Last Dance

Posted by Jonathan on Monday Aug 24, 2009 Under Comics

This comic was originally drawn in 2005 for the anthology series, Reflux. Having just received a Wacom tablet, and intending on drawing the second issue of my Heartbreak series on it, this comic served as a quick warm-up before taking on that project. Which makes “Esperanza’s Last Dance” the first comic I ever fully illustrated digitally!

Boxer Comix “Classics”: No Fear of Vesuvius

Posted by Jonathan on Tuesday Aug 18, 2009 Under Comics

The first of my “classic” webcomics to be re-posted onto the new Boxer Comix website.  Originally drawn in 2006, during a particularly bleak period, this 3-page comic was finished in less than 24 hours.  Reading it years later, I still think it’s oddly sweet.  Click the thumbnail, to read the entire story.
