BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #120 – The first Class Comics Portfolio of 2008 – The Art of Ismael Alvarez.

Hi Everyone!

I promised to keep you posted on up-coming Class Comics titles, so I thought I would let you know that the first Class Comics Portfolio of 2008 will be released in tandem with Zahn #1! The Art of Ismael Alvarez is heading off to the printer and I couldn’t be happier to be releasing this little gem.

I have been a huge fan of Ismael’s work for many years now, and I have watched his unique style evolve, change and grow in the most exciting ways. His artwork has the distinction of being exceptionally lush and dreamy, and though his subjects range from the soft to the hard core, no one can deny the sheer power of his work.

As an artist, Ismael is super prolific, and he is always creating new and exciting art pieces. The art gallery section of his website is impressive for the sheer volume of works presented there – not to mention the beautiful variety of the art that is offered.

But what a lot of people may not know is that as a person, Ismael is one of the nicest guys you could meet. His sweetness and good humor make him a pleasure to work with.

Ismael has drawn a number of my characters over the years. In fact, his first message to me, almost 8 years ago, included 3 beautiful interpretations of Camili-Cat, Diablo and Jon Dazy. Ismi wanted to say hello and let’s just say that the boy knows how to make an impression. Those 3 images remain some of my personal fave pieces of his work.

For his Class Comics Portfolio, Ismael went all out. He created a number of new illustrations, like the one of Deimos which I used on the Portfolio cover. I love it so much that I even used a variant of that UBER SEXY piece on the cover of this issue of BTM. He even created new images of Zahn, Diablo and Ghostboy for the project… to name just a few.

Die hard fans of Ismi’s own creations will be thrilled to see some of his most recognizable works in print for the first time, and new visions of beauty meets erotica, created specifically for this Portfolio.

As a fan of Ismael’s work, I have long dreamed of holding in my hand a PRINTED collection of this impressive artists’ work. I know I am not the only fan of his to dream about this… and finally, that dream is coming true.

Look for the Art of Ismael Alvarez Class Comics Portfolio to be available online at the same time as Zahn #1. Meanwhile, check out Ismael’s personal website for a look at some of his fantastic art.

Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO

  10. This is great news! I’m a major, major fan of Ismael’s work.

  11. wow- I just can’t get enough of Demios! He seems to bring out this sense of raw manliness in the work ot every artist to have depicted him thus far. He’s definitely your Wolverine, Patrick!

    Another longtime admirer of Ismael’s work here. I love how he mixes hyper-realism with pure fantasy. He also has an amazing color sense. I can’t wait to get all those pieces in print format.

  12. Hey there folks… thanks so much for the kudos for Ismi and his work. I just got his Portfolio back from the printer this week and it looks FABULOUS! I think it’s safe to say that we are all going to enjoy this gorgeous collection! Much love to you all!

    Awww… I am totally touched by what you wrote. Thank you so much! I really appreciated it. I’m very pleased you enjoy my work, and I promise to keep drawing Storm every chance I get. There’s a reason she’s our favorite! She is truly a Goddess and extremely inspiring!

    Much love and thanks to you!

  14. Hiya JC…

    LOL! Love the Deimos/Wolverine comparison. Interestingly enough I’ve often felt that way myself.
