I really should have updated this Journal after I had come back from Bronycon which was about two weeks ago today. To keep it short and sweet, because I do not have the patience to write up about the whole trip yet) It was a good experience, got to meet and chat with a lot of the vendors in the hall and say hi to a few horse famous people. I will possibly make a separate post about the con later on if I am not keeping my myself busy with art.
Now that the big cons are over I now only have two other cons I will vendoring at Popnycon UK and hopefully MCM Birmingham. These events are not for another couple months so its All work and no Play for Jowybean .. well sometimes Laziness is still a thing after all.
first Good news
if your interested I am taking commissions again.
Biggest news outside my work on DA and tumblr.
I have a professional website for all my original art and portfolio. jowybeanstudios.com
Now Bad news
And I am positive some of you saw this coming considering the lack of any updating for months
Luna Academy has ended
My FIM comic project that was a Collaboration with my friend and editor has officially stopped. The decision for this apart from being no updates for months :stuipdme: (and I am going to be honest here). Is because
my initial intention with the project was to create a big pony comic adventure that could rival other popular ones on DA. The amount of views a MLP comic gets is crazy and I wanted to be a part of that scene. its stupid,but true.
So much has happened with my creative life that I cannot make any time for it. The detailed art alone would take over 8 hours. I have to focus my energy on things that are more worth my time and fuel my passion for creating art and not with the idea of producing art because of popularity.
however despite it ending I am leaving the pages I did on DA as a showcase of what my comic book style for ponies would look like.
from now on if I get any ideas that I think are worth telling in comic form I will stick with just one off jokes or small comics.and Still refer to for their writing and editing.
thank you for all who read and supported the comic and commented on the pages. and I hope you can understand and respect my decision on this matter.
Its not all doom and gloom for mlp art I have other things that I can manage just fine and I continue to update more frequent.
TwiJacky weekly This is my Rarijack daily inspired tumblr but its for Book Princess and Country horse updated every friday or thursday www.tumblr.com/blog/twijackywe…
Title card projects
MLP FIM title cards
Aiming to get some more title cards done in the next three months, even with the second half of season 5 returning.
the other Title Card series that will be making a long awaited return soon is : Kill La Kill I did not put out that "which show should get titlecards poll" last year for nothing.
This is a comic I have a real passion for and it is a rather ambitious one at that.
issue one jowybean.deviantart.com/galler…
Humanisation.com for those of you who are not aware is a comic project collaboration with my dad about the internet becoming a living reality . We have released the first issue here on DA and started work on the second issue. We plan to have both issues done before the end of the year.
In early December 2014 I was contacted by a screenwriter and Filmmaker called Brendan O'Neill to help him out on a potential graphic novel/ gothic animated film called Scampenstein using Indiegogo we successfully funded the project early this year.
I have been brought on board as the lead character designer and graphic artists to help move the project forward .Scampenstein is planed to harken back to the old days of Dreamworks / Disney style 2D animation with a unique twist on the Frankenstein mythos.
sadly theres being no new updates on development for a few months but I still want to keep it up here as it could make a return some time this year.
The crazy thing is on top of all the above projects I have a lot of other opportunities outside the internet that I will be excited to share with you later on.
like I said All Work no Play for old Jowy and I am loving it. ^^:
Until next Journal and possibly a entry about my Bronycon trip LATERS: peace:
