BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #222 – The Christmas Issue!

Happy Holidays, dear friends.

It’s been a year, hasn’t it? Yes, we’ve all been busy little bees, taking life one day at a time, slowly heading toward yet another doomsday prophecy that would not come to pass — GOOD — and now, once again, it’s that glorious time of year: CHRISTMAS!

I had such good intentions this year for the Christmas issue of Boytoons Magazine. I thought perhaps I would return to my original Christmas issue format of drafting up a Top Ten wish list. Or maybe I’d do a whole bunch of illustrations, Holiday-style to accompany the issue. But you know what they say about good intentions, don’t you? Yeah, they tend to pave the road to the North Pole around this time of year, as we all get busier and nuttier with the family gatherings and social obligations.

So instead of , I’ll just take this opportunity to wish you all an Amazing and Beautiful Holiday Season, and of course, a very joyous and prosperous 2013. And while I may not have a top ten list to share this Holiday, I can share a little Class Comics fun with all of you. A lot of you have told me how much you enjoy my Holiday illustration each year, and that you love the Wallpaper Designs I always put together for you. Well, Fraser and I thought it might be nice to collect all of the past Holiday wallpaper designs I’ve made, and offer them up in one convenient downloadable pack. So please feel free to download the COMPLETE “PAST & PRESENT” CLASS COMICS HOLIDAY-THEMED WALLPAPER PACK!   The Pack includes 7 designs in total, in both standard and widescreen sizes, and features this year’s “Naked Justice and the Class Comics plushies” Christmas illustration.

A beautiful illustration of Class Comics’ Strider created especially for the Holidays by Dinosaurprince, Leon de Leon and Caravaggia.

Also, I want to share with you some beautiful Holiday artwork that my dear friends Dinosaurprince, Leon de Leon and Caravaggia created this season featuring my centaur, STRIDER! Just look at this breathtaking illustration. Leon’s take on Strider is exquisite, and Caravaggia’s beautiful painted backdrop has such a “classical Christmas” feel to it. This image was commissioned by Dinosaurprince and is his sexy brainchild, and I figured you’d all appreciate it very much, given how popular Strider is.

Naked Justice and Santa Claus battle the evil Icecap and his Frosties on Christmas Eve in the Class Comics December 2011 STRIPSHOW episode. Written by Patrick Fillion and illustrated by Logan.

The Boytoons of the Class Comics Universe hope you “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” in the December 2012 STRIPSHOW episode. Based upon a concept by Patrick Fillion, illustrated by Jacob Mott.

And last but not least, I thought it might be fun to post this year and last year’s Class Comics December STRIPSHOW episodes.  Last year’s was written by yours truly and illustrated by the wonderful Logan. This year’s is based on a concept I came up and illustrated by the amazing Jacob Mott. So much Holiday sexiness — I do hope you’ll enjoy these both.

Well, again, a very Happy and Joyous Holiday Season to you all… and thank you all again for making this year so amazing. I look forward to sharing more sexy art and Boytoons with all of you next year.

Warm Holiday Hugz and Seasonal Kisses!
Patrick XOXOX

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #221 – Sanity Breaks and LION-O!

Hello boys and girls…

Well, the artistic SANITY BREAKS continue! This time I thought I would draw a different kind of Felinoid… LOL! I give you LION-O of the THUNDERCATS! I sorta drew this one for my Fraser since he LOVES the Thundercats, particularly Lion-O SOOOOO MUCH … but of course, I had to share him with the rest of you too!

For the nude version, I chose to make him uncut since I figured they probably didn’t practice circumcision on Thundera! LOL!  But I thought he should be wearing his boots just to add a little splash of color. The costumed version is underwear and belt only. I couldn’t bear to cover up his muscular chest! LOL!  In any case, I hope you will enjoy my take on this classic character… and the wallpaper designs I put together for ya! More from me shortly, gang!

All the very best, Patrick XOXO

The Gay Comic Geek reviews MAKO FINN #1

Good morning friends.

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #220 – Sanity Breaks and He-Man!

Hello boys and girls…

I’m often reminded that while deeply satisfying on a personal and professional level, drawing comics for a living can be quite demanding. You can even reach a point where you feel exhausted, and quite frankly drained of your… uhm… creative juices.

When that happens, I like to take what I call artistic SANITY BREAKS! This means that I’ll indulge myself and whatever the Hell I want for a short period of time. You’ve seen my Queens of Sci-Fi… or my Marvel fan art… All sanity breaks! These breaks re-focus my energy. I feel centered again because these little artistic interludes help me to re-learn that I LOVE TO DRAW… and that is greatly important. There’s NO PRESSURE to them whatsoever. It’s all about fun, fun, FUN!!!

Having worked like a dog on Camili-cat: Love Lost — not to mention a whole bunch of other Class-related projects — I thought I would take a Sanity Break and draw everyone’s favorite Eternian hero, the sexy, buff and blonde HE-MAN!

He-Man fan art by Patrick Fillion – WIDESCREEN wallpaper – 1680 x 1050

He-Man fan art by Patrick Fillion – STANDARD wallpaper – 1280 × 1024

Aaaaaahhhhh… very therapeutic indeed. I had such a great time drawing, and especially coloring He-Man, making his big sexy muscles look all shiny and wet. And unveiling the mythical monster that lives under his loincloth was a hoot too. This is a character I’ve loved since I was a kid… and I’ve been DYING to draw him. So glad I finally did!

He-Man fan art by Patrick Fillion – Loincloth Variant – WIDESCREEN wallpaper – 1680 x 1050

He-Man fan art by Patrick Fillion – Loincloth Variant – STANDARD wallpaper – 1280 × 1024

So my friends, please enjoy the He-Man fan art and wallpaper, loinclothed or stripped down — the choice is yours. LOL! Drawing He-Man’s done me a world of good. I’ve found my center again, and more than that — now I’m hungry for my own characters again! I’m ready to get back on the Class Comics drawing wagon. I can’t wait too… there’s more Zahn and Cam coming up… not to mention all the other Class Boytoons! So stay tooned. BTM is back, baby — and I’ll be bringing you a ton of new art and updates in the months to come.

All the very best, Patrick XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #219 – The Halloween Issue!

Hello my friends…

I trust you’ve all been well!  How appropriate that BOYTOONS MAGAZINE should be back from the dead, on this day of all days…  HALLOWEEN!  MWAH-HA! HA! HA! Yes, I’ve been away from this blog for several months now, and while there are several important and legitimate reasons for this, I simply could NOT miss doing a Halloween issue.

The BOYTOONS MAGAZINE HALLOWEEN ISSUE has always been one of my favorite to put together each year. I absolutely LOVE Halloween, and writing about all the things I find personally horrifically satisfying is something I always look forward to. So let’s jump right back in, shall we! LOL!

I want to start by making a very personal, and important announcement. Last year I had the distinct pleasure of meeting the incredible CLIVE BARKER in person. While at Bent-Con, my partner Fraser and I were invited to come see him at his home. You all know that NIGHTBREED is one of my all-time favorite films. I love the book and source material CABAL, and must have read it at least a dozen times. So, suffice it to say that meeting Mr. Barker was more than a dream come true… in fact all this time after the fact, thinking of it still leaves me buzzed. I should point out that Mr. Barker is a big fan of Class Comics, and he had some incredibly wonderful and deeply touching things to say about what Class Comics and its group of creators have accomplished. As I said — still buzzed!

Anyway, one thing led to another, and now Mr. Barker and I are collaborating on a VERY SPECIAL comic project together. I know you’ll hate me for this, but I don’t want to reveal anything further at this point. Please bear with me, there is still much work to be done, and I just want to leave it at that for now. What I can tell is that working with Mr. Barker is a BLAST, and I’m finding myself with the opportunity to draw characters I’ve LOVED for a very, VERY long time. I can’t even begin to tell you how OVER THE MOON I am with this. Mr. Barker is one of my heroes and working with him and his creations is quite frankly one of the greatest joys of my artistic career. I promise to keep you all posted on the project we’re working on together in the months to come. In the meantime, here’s an illustration of Devil Lude, Leroy Gomm and Kinsky of the Nightbreed. I drew this image for Mr. Barker as a gift of thanks and appreciation for receiving Fraser and I into his home last December. I couldn’t be prouder to say that the original and a color print of this piece hang framed in Mr. Barker’s studio.

Class Comics’ DEIMOS battles a demon by moonlight. Artwork by LOGAN!

Next on my Halloween list (not that this is particularly Halloweeny, but I had to mention it…), I want to talk about that always-impressive God of Gay Erotic Comics; LOGAN! It may surprise you to know that despite the fact that Logan and I have known each other for several years and that we’ve collaborated on the Deimos series and other comic projects on a number of occasions, I had up till now, never heard his voice before. Yup — we do everything via email. LOL! This morning I was treated to an awesome 2-part interview with Logan on Dr. Dick’s Sex Advice Blog. Dr. Dick interviewed Logan and asked him a ton of really great and intelligent questions, and Logan gave very insightful and thoughtful answers. It was a pure delight hearing Logan talk about his work and his artistic process. If you’re a Logan fan, you MUST listen to the interview. It’s a fabulous podcast…  And Logan has one HELL of a sexy voice! XD Part One is here, and Part Two is here. 

Logan is currently hard at work on PORKY #4 and #5… and if you LOVE his illustration of Deimos which I posted above, you’ll be thrilled to learn that he is also preparing to take on DEIMOS #3. Naturally, I couldn’t be more excited… so I’ll be sure to keep you all posted on that as well.

Jacko the Halloweener takes on Camili-Cat in Class Comics’ 2012 Halloween STRIPSHOW episode… EXOTIC CANDY. Art by Jacob Mott. Story by Patrick Fillion.

Speaking of artists I admire and love to work with, the spectacular JACOB MOTT and I collaborated this year on the Class Comics Halloween STRIPSHOW episode. Seems that Jacko the Halloweener was in the mood for a little something… “exotic” this year, so he decided to have a go at Camili-Cat! LOL!  Cam of course doesn’t really know what Halloween is. He’s an alien after all… But the action between he and Jacko is MIGHTY HAWT!  Not surprising really, since everything that Jacob does is scorching, erotic perfection. This strip was especially fun for both of us since Jacob had never worked with Cam before. I couldn’t be more thrilled with his depiction of my beloved Felinoid… and I love the way he captured Cam’s sexy new look. So naturally, I simply HAVE GOT to post the episode here for all of you to enjoy.  It’s just TOO FABULOUS not to!

Jacob Mott draws some of the sexiest Halloween man-beasts EVER and posts them on his BIG WATCH BOIZ Tumblr Page.

You may also wanna do yourself a very large favor and visit Jacob Mott’s BIG WATCH BOIZ Tumblr page. He’s been whipping up some of the hottest Halloween Hunks you’ve ever seen and posting them there for our enjoyment. Definitely my kind of HALLOWEEN TREAT!

Meanwhile, if you’re a Class Comics fan, you probably already know about the CLASS COMICS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL Meaty #3 that was just released this month. But just in case you haven’t checked out the Class Comics website in a little while, or aren’t subscribed to the Class Comics newsletter, let me just fill you in on this amazing Meaty. Actually, the Class Comics Halloween Special is a two-volume Digital Comic that features all your favorite Class Comics characters, and the work of almost 80 wicked and mind-blowingly talented artists. This is Class Comics’ BIGGEST Halloween celebration to date, and I strongly encourage you to download both the TRICK EDITION and the TREAT EDITION.

The Class Comics Halloween Special Meaty #3… Download the TRICK Edition and the TREAT Edition now from the Class Comics website.

Each book is completely different and features 70 pages of all new mini comics and pin ups by some of the most gifted artists working in Gay Erotic Comics today! Yours truly has even created several new illustrations for the Halloween Special, including my first ever official drawing of Glow Worm… I had such a great time lighting that jack o’ lantern with his glow stick that I simply HAD to put him on the cover of this BTM Halloween issue. I’ve also drawn new Trip, Diablo, Locus and Camili-Cat art… and here’s a little teaser from a piece I call “The Dead are Horny”! LOL! Clearly the dead have great taste in men!

“The Dead are HORNY” and after Camili-Cat’s bone! Art by Patrick Fillion from the Class Comics Halloween Special Meaty #3.

I tell ya, the Class Comics Halloween Special is a FANTASTIC way to celebrate Halloween, and Fraser and I both want to thank each and every artist and creator who submitted artwork for this smashing 2-volume Meaty from the bottom of our black, black hearts! LOL!  Be sure to check out the complete list of creators and artists here… and be sure to check out their websites and blogs and give them some love. They all deserve it!

Incidentally, the very talented Steven Bereznai, writer of the fantastic novel Queeroes recently interviewed me via Skype regarding the Class Comics Halloween Special. You can check that out over here on YouTube.

American Horror Story Asylum… a perfectly FRIGHTENING delight!! Now on FX!

It wouldn’t be a BTM Halloween issue if I didn’t gush about a few horror themed films or television shows worth seeing on Halloween night! Dare I say that I love this season of FX’s deliciously sacrilegious American Horror Story even MORE than I loved the last one. This year’s Asylum is creepy/cool beyond the telling of it, and if Jessica Lang’s hatefully twisted/hypocritical Sister Jude doesn’t scare the crap outta you, the exorcisms and bloody faces definitely WILL! 

But quite by accident, Fraser and I discovered and rented a film called Red Lights. The movie stars Sigourney Weaver, Robert DeNiro and Cillian Murphy and it’s captivating from start to finish. A real gem of a find, more thriller than horror, but smart, brilliantly acted and chillingly compelling… we couldn’t tear our eyes away from it.

“Two investigators of paranormal hoaxes, the veteran Dr. Margaret Matheson and her young assistant, Tom Buckley, study the most varied metaphysical phenomena with the aim of proving their fraudulent origin. Simon Silver, a legendary blind psychic, reappears after an enigmatic absence of 30 years to become the greatest international challenge for both orthodox science and professional skeptics. Tom starts to develop an intense obsession with Silver, whose magnetism becomes stronger with each new manifestation of inexplicable events. As Tom gets closer to Silver, tension mounts, and his worldview is threatened to its core.”

Red Lights is brilliant, and a perfectly thrilling Halloween affair you will be glad you popped into your Blu Ray or DVD Player.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this year’s BOYTOONS MAGAZINE HALLOWEEN issue… and know that I will be back again very soon. I want to freshen up my template and make this blog fun to do for me, and fun to read for you once again. So stay tooned… and HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you all.

Spooky Hugz and Halloween Kisses, Patrick XOXOX

 

New Fan Art by INMOMAKURO!

Hey folks…

Happy Canada Day, everyone!

To celebrate,  I thought I’d share some gorgeous new Diablo and Camili-Cat fan art created by the amzingly talented Inmomakuro.  These pieces are sooooo beautiful, and I think you’ll agree with me that he captured the essence of the characters perfectly.

Fan art of Class Comics’ sexy DIABLO, drawn by Inmomakuro.

Inmomakuro’s take on Diablo is very sensual, and I love that he opted to make him uncut for this image — so it’s sort of a sexy cross between Diablo and his son, Incubus. A very sexy touch!

And his Camili-Cat is no less sexy. OMG — that butt, that chest!  Cam looks mighty fiiiine wading around in that crystal blue water. This one’s got 2 beautiful versions — 1 in color and 1 in black and white.

Fan art of Class Comics’ sexy CAMILI-CAT, drawn by Inmomakuro.

These are two superb pieces of Class Comics fan art, and Inmomakuro is an extremely talented artist whose work I never get tired of seeing.  See more of his beautiful art here, here and here!

Thanks for making these, Makuro! I absolutely LOVE them!

Have a wonderful weekend, everybody. More from me soon!

Hugz + Kisses, Patrick XOXOX

PROMETHEUS Engineer Nude!

NOTE: Possible Small PROMETHEUS Spoilers ahead! 

If you’re like me, you’re a massive ALIEN film franchise fan, and learning that Ridley Scott was making PROMETHEUS, a “possible” prequel to ALIEN sent you squealing in fits of fanboy delight.  I skipped out on work the day that PROMETHEUS opened so that I could see it as soon as I possibly could. Did I love the film? YES! Without a doubt! Did I think it was a perfect film? Well, not necessarily, but in all honesty, I walked into that cinema with expectations the size of the Nostromo. So while it was bound to be hard for it to live up to that, the first hour of the film made me feel like I was actually a part of the crew of the PROMETHEUS, on this insane expedition to LV-223.  It left me absolutely spellbound.

But this is not a review of the film. Fraser and I agreed that the “Engineers” were possibly some of the sexiest aliens we’d ever seen in mainstream science fiction. The opening sequence in which we’re introduced to the “sacrificial Engineer” left both Fraser and I incredibly inspired. We both agreed that I simply HAD to draw an Engineer. This fan art is the result.

I opted for simple cel shading because it offers such a striking contrast on my Engineer’s skin and of course I HAD to do two different versions — one in a loincloth, like in the film, and one completely nude.

His physiology completely fascinated me. In the film, he’s very buff, and while he’s also closely human, you can definitely see some anatomical variations that differ greatly from a human being. I played with those, and it’s pretty obvious in my nude variant that this Engineer is very definitely NOT of this Earth… and yet, close enough that we might be distant relatives.

Surprisingly, the background was a ton of fun to draw. I wanted it feeling cold and primordial, the way the setting felt in the film.  Many, MANY layers later, I felt relatively pleased with the result.

Whether you enjoyed PROMETHEUS or not, I do hope you’ll enjoy my take on the Engineer. I for one loved the film and hope to see these tall, pale alien hunks in future movies to come. Thank you Ridley Scott! :D

Hugz + kisses, Patrick XOXO
