Felinoids #3 “Faux” action figures – A Post A Day – Day 6

Hello my friends.

If you’ve read Camili-Cat: Felinoids #3, then you’ve seen my “faux” action figures packages in the book, or perhaps on the official Felinoids mini site. I was inspired to create them by the beautiful new Star Wars action figure packaging.  However, in Felinoids #3, they’re actually printed quite small.  Recently I received a few requests by fans to show them off a bit more, and hopefully a little bit more clearly than they appear in the book.

So here you are! :o). A post that is perhaps much ado about very little, except that I always like to oblige my fans whenever I can… and that I had a buttload of fun creating these silly little action figures and their packages.

It’s no secret: I am a HUGE action figure fan, and one of my fondest dreams is to someday see some of my boys become plastic toys.  But in the meantime, these little dudes will have to suffice.  LOL!  This is only a  few of my official Wave 1 Felinoids action figures.  You can check out the Felinoids mini site to see the rest of the assortment. Enjoy my friends, and we’ll see you tomorrow for Day 7 of “A Post A Day”.

Cool but unused! A post a day – OVERTIME – Day 9

Hello folks…

Today we take a look at some art created for Camili-Cat: Felinoids #3 and Boytoon Adventures #1… Art that may be kinda cool, but ultimately was never used.

Initially, I had mapped out an entire sex scene for the end of Felinoids #3 in which Cam fucks Locus. It may have gotten cut, but I have always loved the energy of this particular panel!

I yanked this entire panel out from Felinoids #3, page 9 and replaced it with a completely different image. In the end, it was for the best, even if this original panel is still kinda hot!

Even cover sketches go unsued -- Actually, ESPECIALLY cover sketches!! Until the perfect illustration is hatched, I keep sketching until I get it right. This image may be hot, but ultimately was too hard core and didn't quite convey what I wanted for Felinoids #3.

See, as an artist, you always end up penciling WAY more stuff than you ever end up inking — well I certainly do, in any case! I personally have drawers filled with pencil sketches that will never be finalized.

I once struggled with this notion.  I guess a part of me sorta felt like the stuff was wasted.  But now I don’t think that way anymore.  I realize that sometimes to get to a great final product, you have to cut stuff that just doesn’t add to the quality of the project in question.  That doesn’t mean the stuff you cut is crap… it just means that you either run out of space, or come up with things that work better in the overall scheme of things.

An unused cover sketch for Boytoon Adventures #1. Fun, but a bit boring in my humble opinion! LOL!

A sexy little skech of Cam that I always meant to ink as a Boytoon Adventures pin-up, but never got around to. I do so like Camili-Cat's little bubble butt here though! HA! HA! HA! Meanwhile, I couldn't quite decide if I should show his balls or not. Ah well... add it to the pile!

Locus and Cam all tied up for Boytoon Adventures #1. Since they don't actually appear together in the book, I decided to leave this pin-up image out!

Originally, I thought I might produce "faux covers" for each story contained in Boytoon Adventures #1. This image was to be used as the cover for the Cam story. Whne I junked the faux cover idea, I junked this image!

It’s all part of the creative journey and of the refining process.  And if nothing else, it makes for cool “behind the scenes”materials. Still, some of this stuff I quite like and enjoyed drawing, so I felt that you might like a little peek into my junk drawer!  LOL! ;)

Enjoy my friends. See ya tomorrow for — WHOA — my 10th post in a row! Phew! Haven’t posted like this since the first months of Boytoons Magazine.

Hugz + kisses, Patrick XOXO

PS — I plan on answering all the latest comments you have left at the end of this week of postings. Thanks again for reading my friends! It’s greatly appreciated! XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #184 – Felinoids #3 is here!

Boytoons Magazine #184 cover

Can you believe it’s been nearly six years in the making?!  Crazy, but true!  All that to say, that finally – at long last – Camili-Cat: Felinoids #3 is out!

I still can’t quite believe it took me this long to get the issue out, but in my defense, I will say this.  There were a lot of story gaps to fill in before Felinoids #3 could hit the stands. It was necessary to go back and tell the missing story chapters.  Most of those we see in Rapture #1, #2, Boytoon Adventures #1 and in the Camili-Cat: 20th Anniversary Special.  But only once the back-end of Cam’s journey was explored could I see it through to its conclusion.

So here we are.  Cam’s journey, at least THIS particular part of his journey is at an end.  His fondest dream was finding more survivors of the Felinoid race, and he’s done that.  But is he happy about it?  Well, you’ll have to check out the issue and draw your own conclusions about that.

So what’s left for Cam?  Oh my God — a TON of stuff.  Upon concluding this issue, I felt a great sense of freedom and release.  See, as long as Felinoids was the current Camili-Cat series, he was essentially locked into a set story-line.  But now that I have concluded that chapter of his life, the sky truly is the limit… and boy, do I ever have some cool, naughty plans in store for everyone’s favorite tomcat!

But I don’t want to get ahead of myself.  Now is the time to celebrate this third issue of the Felinoids series, and I’m really pleased with how it all came together.  For you sex-lovers, I say hang on to your pajamas, because this one is completely soaked in sticky man-jizz.  Pretty much from cover to cover, the cumshots fly abundant, and what I love best is that it’s totally in line with the issue’s story.  I dare say it’s the best of both worlds.  It’s equal parts story and sex, just the way Camili-Cat AND his fans like it!  LOL!

But again, I will let you check it out for yourselves.  If you’d like to know more about the book, and get your hot little hands on some really fun previews and goodies, check out the official Felinoids Mini Site.

Thanks again for patiently awaiting this issue, folks.  I know it took a really long time, but I think it leaves Cam and his pals in a really great place, and brings this current chapter of their lives to a satisfying close.

Hugz + kisses

Hello Friends…

I am so close to the end of Felinoids #3, I can taste it!  LOL!  I’ve been working pretty solidly over the past few weeks to finalize the art and dialog… and it’s all paying off.  I think this installment will make a great conclusion to the series, and I can’t wait to share it with you.  I couldn’t help myself today… I just HAD to post a few panels from the book!

While the book concludes Cam’s search for more of his species (which he pretty much found in Felinoids #2), it does set a few other events in motion.  Cam may well end up with another obsession; something pretty earth-shattering happens to Felicia; and, oh yes – someone is gonna croak!

But I don’t wanna give too much away too soon! Suffice it to say that Felinoids #3 is (I hope! LOL!) giving you what you have demanded since book #2 came out: More Camili-Cat, TONS of hot Felinoid sex, a cool conclusion to the series, and all of it in mind-shattering full color!!! HA! HA! HA!

Enjoy the sneak peek, boys and girls… and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!

Hugz + Kisses,

Artist BLOCKED no more!!!

Hey folks…

Just wanted to share the good news with ya!  Seems my pesky bout of Artist Block has passed and I am now BACK ON TRACK!!! In fact, I think I have learned something!  Artist Block may well be a good thing after all.  See ‘cause now I am even more inspired than before!

I dare say the truth is in the pudding, because yours truly has just finished the pencils a CRAZY 2-PAGE MASSIVE FELINOID ORGY that will hopefully blow your eyeballs out of their sockets!  LOL!  What you see below is just a teeny, tiny part of that orgy in rough pencil.  Just a teaser, really!  LOL!

Yup, I’m back to it on Felinoids #3 and lemme tell ya, Cam wanted more Felinoids… well, now he’s SURROUNDED by more boy pussy than he could possibly know what to do with…

Thanks so very much to all of you, dear friends, for your kind and most appreciated words of encouragement during my dry spell!  You guys rock beyond the telling of it.

More from me shortly!
BIG BIG Hugz + kisses!

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #150 – Celebration time!

Good morning Gang!

So here I am at 150 issues and counting… Never thought it would come this far, this little Blog of mine.  But today, rather than wax eloquent about how wonderful it is to have blogged quite this much, I am going to share something with you that I find very frustrating as an artist.

Yes it’s true… I am currently feeling a touch of artist block!

Okay, so, not like that’s the end of the world… EXCEPT that this ailment seems to hit me EVERY TIME I am close to the end of a project.  In this case, it’s Boytoon Adventures #1 and Felinoids #3.

There could be a few reasons for this.  Maybe it’s because I draw stuff out of order, working on all the pages that inspire me the most first.  Maybe it’s because I work for too long on the same project and need a change of pace in order to keep on creatin’! (Isn’t that what Boytoon Adventures was supposed to be?!?!) Maybe it’s just because I’m being a whiny, flaky bitch… WHO KNOWS!  It may even be all of the above.

The truth is that I get SO EXCITED when I am near the end of a project, I think it makes my head explode, causing some sort of brain blockage that shuts down my drawing drive.  I get this way for several reasons, not the least of which is how much I look forward to sharing new books with you guys!  You realize you good folks are like, my fuel, right?  LOL! ;)

This is not meant to  pressure you in any way!  But if I were drawing for myself alone, that would hardly be any fun, would it!

I think when I stop and really think about it, there is a healthy case of nerves happening.  I will let you all in on a little secret – artists can be very insecure about their work sometimes and I am no exception.

Oh sure, I know what I’m doing.  God, I hope so after all these years!!!  But I want everything to be as perfect as possible… for me AND for you.  I thrive on making us all happy!

There was a time, back when I worked at Avatar for example, where I could put myself on “automatic” and just draw, draw, draw.  The difference then is that it wasn’t MY STUFF – it was someone else’s.  That meant thinking it to death WAY LESS because it wasn’t my own creation.  Seems that when it comes to my Boytoons, I second guess constantly!  Surely, I am not the only artist who does this, but man-o-man can it be a pain in the ass.

So this morning, I am looking at Boytoon Adventures #1 and Felinoids #3 and wishing I were working on Zahn #2!  WTF?!?!  Well… okay… the REAL truth is I wish I were playing “Left 4 Dead”, but that’s not gonna happen ‘cause I gots me a business to run!  LOL!

Don’t feel bad for yours truly, and please do NOT worry.  These dry spells never last very long with me.  I’ll be inspired again before you know it, and we’ll all see Boytoon Adventures #1 and Felinoids #3 in print soon enough. This is just how it works with me, I’m afraid.

Meanwhile, this wouldn’t be a celebration of coming this far with Boytoons Magazine if I didn’t thank all of you for sticking around and for being so supportive.  You all rock, and I luvs ya! So… thanks for the fuel, dear friends!  Ours is a symbiotic relationship! ;)

Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO

PS – That’s Cal on the cover of today’s issue.  He’s just one of the new Felinoids you’ll meet in Felinoids #3! I love his little spots! Toodles!

Boytoons Magazine #138 – The 2009 Class Comics Calendar is here!

Hey Gang!

I hope you’re all doing well.  I haven’t had the opportunity to Blog much these last couple of weeks.  In my defense however, I have been hard at work on my various comic projects… and though I am not as far along as I might have liked, I am pleased to report that stuff is coming along nicely!  Besides, it’s not the speed with which you get there… but the quality… or something of that nature! LOL!

I had hoped to have Boytoon Adventures #1 and Felinoids #3 done by the end of 2008… but I just cannot rush these projects.  I want them to be as perfect as possible, so I hope you can forgive me, guys… but that means they will not be out until next year… but they SHOULD be out early on in the season.  I will keep you posted on my progress, though!  I promise! But in the meantime, here is a shot of Cam with Imanno’s hand up his ass to tide you all over… ! ;)

Meanwhile, I am putting the final touches on my next 2008 release; Striptease.  Striptease is a collection of all my 1-page comic strips, and features the Camili-Cat, Locus and Zahn stuff from my website, but also includes a bunch of new strips I’ve created specifically for this project.  That’s right – never before seen material with Boytoons like Space Cadet, Devilhound and Dominion!  This book even includes a new Zahn short story!  Not to be missed folks!

Striptease is due out by the end of 2008, and I will let you guys know the minute it’s available to order.  It’s a fun collection, and I can’t wait to see it in print.  The 1-page strips are a great deal of fun to write and illustrate, and it will be really great to see them together as a collection for the very first time.

In other news, I’m so proud to announce that Fraser and I have just opened our brand new Class Comics Gear shop over at the Class Comics website.  The shop has some really cool Class Comics themed stuff available for sale, including mugs, mouse pads, t-shirts and other cool items that feature art by me AND by some of your other fave Class Comics artists.

Headlining the new line of products is our wicked 2009 Class Comics Calendar.  A lot of you wrote in last year and asked us to create a calendar that featured non-explicit images so that it could be placed on any wall.  Well friends, we listened to your request!

The 2009 Calendar is a cool collection of illustrations by Logan, Ismael Alvarez, Joseph Hawk, Jacob Mott, HvH, Mike and even has a few my yours truly.  And best of all, it’s completely safe for most walls!

I hope you will check it out, and take a look at the other stuff we’ve created for the shop!

Thanks again for patiently waiting for me to get my shit together and start posting again, you guys!  I’ll have more for you this week, including some cool previews of the projects I’m currently working very hard on!

Have a fantastic evening, dear friends!
Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO
