BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #154 – Happy Black History Month!


Hiya Gang…

Okay, so I am a bit late in the month wishing you all a very happy Black History month! I would have gotten around to it sooner, but I had some Blog troubles and had to go off line for a few days.  Ah well, everything is fixed now and you know what they say, better late than never.

To celebrate Black History month, I thought I’d post some of the art I’ve done for Black Inches over the years.  Incidentally, I am sadly no longer working for Black Inches.  The magazine has opted to use only photos to illustrate their short fiction from now on.  It’s sad for me because I truly loved drawing for them, but we parted on great terms and you know what else they say… nothing lasts forever.


I also want to say a great big thanks to my pal JC Etheredge for the wicked postings he’s made over at his Anti-Heroes Blog concerning Black History Month.  You really should check it out.  There’s some great stuff there, including JC’s very cool TOP 10 Implicitly black characters review.


Meanwhile, I wanted to mention that the “Show your Love (LUST) for Class Comics” contest has come to a close.  Now it’s time to vote for your favorite 3 entries.  All you gotta do is head on over to the Class Comics website and cast your vote.  Now remember boys and girls, this isn’t just about who showed the most skin!  Consider the creativity that went into each entry.  LOL! ;)  The polls close on March 7th, so don’t miss your opportunity to make your opinion heard.



In other news, a lot of you have been asking me to do this for a long time, and I finally JOINED FACEBOOK!  Yes, it’s time I got with the times!!!  So now, I hope you’ll all come and be my friends!  Just follow this link to my page.  It’s better to do it that way, because there are like, a million different Patrick Fillions out there.  HA! HA! HA!



So there you have it folks — Happy Black history Month once again!!  Enjoy the illustrations I’ve posted and I’ll be back with more goodies for ya very soon!

Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXOX

  1. Love your artwork. Its so hot

  2. Black boys ARE delicious, aren’t they? :)

  3. LOL@ Jody’s comment. I kinda only saw “Hair” just recently and LOVE that song! hehe! It’s so great seeing your B.I. work amassed like this. They are all really narrative illustrations. The Basketball Players one is the hottest for me. (i loves a baller-haha) Oh, and thanks for the shout-out, bro! I’ll be glad when this month is over though– I’m feeling a little pontificatey lately. haha.

    Oh and can we talk about the wtf-ness of the entries for the contest!? YOWZA! I had to cast my 3 votes for the inked guys cuz that’s dedication in the rawest, realest sense. Also that Locus cosplay deserves a headnod. GayComicGeek and is boy are priceless.

  12. Hey JC — thanks for all the kind words, buddy! Big time appreciated! I will really miss my gig with Black Inches. You know how much I love drawing sexy black men! The Basketball image is still to this day one of my fave pics I ever did for the mag. I’m so pleased you like it too! :-)

    And yeah — the entries for the “Show your Lust” contest are pretty wicked! I could never pick just one winner, myself! So I let the readers and fans vote! LOL!

  14. Hey Nookie — thanks so much for the great comment. Glad you liked the Black Inches pics — and the use of the Hammer!

    you may be interested to find out that when I submitted that pic, the Hammer was included, but I was asked to remove it before publication! Ah well, I still have the original version and can at least share it here with you guys!

    Loads of luv to ya!

  15. Hey R.Dot — thanks SOOOO much for the truly kind words, my friend. I really appreciated it!

    You know how much I love to draw sexy Black Men, so I will certainly keep doing so. Mostly, I will amp up my black characters’ presence in my books, and I have big plans for Cauldron, Zahn’s hot new buddy!

    I can’t ever imagine a day where I would stop drawing black guys altogether. I just love doing so way too much! :o)

    Hugz + Kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  16. Hey Chris — thanks so much for the comment and kind words! I really appreciated it!
