BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #135 – The End of Summer Issue!

Hey everybody….

Summer has come, and pretty much gone rather unseen to Fraser and I!  Moving from one home to the next can leave you feeling pretty harried, and that’s exactly what happened to us!  Not that I am complaining, mind you.  In the end, we are super happy to have moved into our new digs.  That being said, the craziness of the summer did not stop there.

After you move, it seems all of the people you have ever been related to want to see your new pad.  At least, that is the way it was with us.  So one after another, my mother, my brother and his wife, Fraser’s mother and his aunt and uncle from Switzerland all came by for a visit.  This is of course a wonderful treat, since we adore our families, but the result has been a Summer that has flown by rather quickly, and left no trace.

This year, there were no trips to local lakes.  No road trips.  No attending Comic Conventions.  No barbecues… and worst of all, very little drawing for yours truly!!!

I am happy to report that for the next little while, I am relatively, well, relative free… and despite how much I appreciate their visits, I am looking forward to getting back to work.

It has also occurred to me that Boytoons Magazine has been somewhat neglected throughout the Summer… but without new material, I have also not had all that much to share personally.  Still, I wanted to say goodbye to the Summer of 2008, a Summer of whirlwinds and company… with a little bit of style!  And I do have some fun stuff to share!

A few weeks back, I celebrated my 35th birthday, and I received a wonderful gift from my friend Ismael Alvarez.  He drew his adorable Bruno character dressed up as Zahn.  I’ve been meaning to post this little guy for weeks, and at last here he is.  Isn’t he adorable!!!  I think the resemblance is striking!  LOL!

Also a few weeks back, I announced that as Bryce Peters, I was working on Boytoon Adventures.  It seems this inspired my pal Chubtoons to create his own Boytoon Adventure-style rendition of Deimos.  He did a superb job I might add!  I just love the graffiti wings on the wall – It’s a very cool touch!  Deimos looks so sexy by Chubtoons’ talented hand!

With the end of Summer inevitably comes the Fall, my favorite season.  The Fall brings Halloween, one of my 2 fave Holidays, as well as the new TV season – THANK GOD for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (Summer Glau is a Goddess!!!), and while Fringe looks quite promising, I eagerly await October 3rd for the premiere of the Star Wars: Clone Wars series on the Cartoon Network.

A special thank you should go out to Ronald McDonald for getting together with George Lucas and putting out 18 wicked little Star Wars Bobble head toys which I happily collected!  Yes – such is the extent of my geekiness!  HA! HA! HA!

And speaking of Star Wars, this year the fall brings us Star Wars: The Force Unleashed! At last, a Star Wars game worth celebrating, this thing simply ROCKS!!!  Being a huge SW fan (in case you weren’t sure about that yet!  LOL!) , I can tell you that I am looking forward to hours of mind-numbing Sith action.

But first things first!  I am happily back at work on Boytoon Adventures, Felinoids #3, Rapture #3 (which has just been solicited through Diamond Distributors) and several other projects.  Boytoon Adventures continues to be a real joy to play with, while Felinoids #3 is getting raunchier by the very minute! LOL!

And fear not, though this issue may have been mostly about personal reflection, I have some really fun surprises coming up for you shortly!  So stay tooned as I make a point of updating a little more frequently! Till next time, my friends.  Have a fantastic afternoon, and I’ll see you back here again very shortly!

Hugz + Kisses to all of you!
Patrick XOXO

PS – On the cover today is an image I managed to do last month for Black Inches Magazine.  It was colored, rather exquisitely I might add, by my pal and long-time colorist Hernán Cabrera!  Enjoy!

  1. Love your Magazine cover for this, Patrick, it’s smexy.

    It seems you enjoyed your summer with you and Fraser’s families. ;]

    I’m sure you’ll be happy to get back to your own routine though. Me, I’m going to miss my summer, as I’ll have to be moving back to my dorms at school. Not that the dorms aren’t fun… There’s just no place like home. :P

    Oh, and I agree that the Forced Unleashed does look awesome. Although, I’m not sure if I’m going to check it out myself. :P

  2. Dear Patrick,

    we haven’t spoken/written in quite some time, so I’m really happy to hear/read that you’re fine and well! The news that Felinoids #3 is getting sexier and raunchier than ever makes me really, really, really excited! ;-) Cannot await your new stuff, Patrick! Your art rules!

    All the best – Dirk

  3. Sounds like you’ve had a busy summer Patrick, but how nice to spend time with family. :)
    Bruno is so cute, you lucky thing! Hernán does such lovely work, love all that creamy yellow. Smexy indeed!
    I had a go at playing The Force Unleashed on ps3 demo last night, I suck at gaming. I fell off a landing twice and died. Not to mention the boys sniggering at me. hehe. But, it was SO cool. Maybe I just need practice…
    Enjoy the end of summer. :)
    Kisses.
    Sarah

  6. Hello Rarutos…

    Thanks so much for the wonderful comment, dear friend. I hope your move back to the dorms is not too stressful and that you enjoy your time there… but I totally hear ya. That sort of thing can be hard and well, home is always where the heart is!

    I am so pleased you enjoyed this issue’s cover. I had a lot of fun putting it together.

    And as for the Force Unleashed, it’s been a real joy so far, with only just a few annoying stages to get passed. Sigh — it seems all games have a bit of those!

    Thanks for the well wishes, my friend. Talk to you soon!
    Hugz + kisses,
