Convention Style Sketches! A post a day – Day 4

A lot of my fans and readers have asked me to make more of  my original art available for purchase.  Last year, Fraser and I thought we’d put a cool new spin on the idea of selling my originals, so we offered up “Convention Style Sketches Originals” – affordable, hand-drawn original pencil and ink sketches created by yours truly, featuring your Class Comics character of choice!

We were absolutely floored by the response.  I believe there were 40 available slots, and they filled up in no time!  And I LOVED seeing the character choices people made.  Some of them were a terrific, unexpected surprise!!

Convention style sketches are fun because they are very loose and freeing.  I don’t feel huge stress when I create them for a fan because they are meant to be an “inspiration of the moment” sort of drawing, and take roughly half an hour to forty-five minutes long to draw.  They’re a lot of fun, and today I wanted to share a few of the drawings that I created as a result!

It’s entirely possible that we’ll offer more Convention Style Sketch Originals in the near future.  I’ll keep you all posted.  In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy dear friends.

Class Comics JAM POSTER – by Jacob Mott!

Good morning my friends…

Today I want to talk to you about this AMAZING new Jam Poster that Jacob Mott created for us here at Class Comics.  It’s absolutely stunning!  I have one hanging in my studio, and it’s all I can do to peel my eyes away from it long enough to get any work done! HA! HA! HA!

As you know, Jacob Mott is the artist drawing the new NAKED JUSTICE: Beginnings series (look for issue #1 to be out in early 2009!).  I love Jacob’s take on NJ and naturally was burning to see how he would draw most of my other Boytoons.  Jacob was happy to oblige and a few short days later, I received this incredible illustration from him.

It features 18 of my Boytoons, including the 4 heavy-hitters: Zahn, Naked Justice, Cam and Deimos! Plus it introduces you to 4 brand new characters from the NJ Beginnings series.  Horsefly, Glow Worm, Trip and the Size King are all part of the Unrivaled Alliance and as you can see, they are hot, hot, HOT!

So I’m encouraging you all to check this print out! It’s available in 2 sizes, 13 X 19 and 8.5 X 11.  It’s glossy, it’s gorgeous, and it’s a piece of Gay Pop Culture Art!  Plus, it’s LIMITED!  So you’ll wanna get yours while ya can!

I dunno about you, but this just whets my appetite for NJ’s new series.

More from me shortly, my friends. Hugz + kisses to you all!

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #131 – Boytoon Adventures revealed!

Hey everybody….

Hope you are all well.  I am buried in boxes up to my eyebrows.  HA! HA! HA!  As you know, Fraser and I are moving into our new digs – on Thursday of this week in fact – and we’ve been busy little campers trying to get everything in order and ready to be moved.  So before I go off line for a few days, I wanted to say one last quick hello and bring you a little more info on Boytoon Adventures!

A little while ago, I was reading some of my beloved Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures, and it occurred to me how fun, cutting edge and sleek the style of those comics is.  In fact, that style of drawing seems quite popular lately.  You see it in a ton of DC cartoons and comics, and Marvel seems to be adopting it to some degree as well.  So I thought, I want to try my hand at this.

I began to doodle and soon it became pretty evident that the style (or my version of it at least) was really working for me.  Next thing I knew, Fraser and I were loving the results and soon after that, we started making plans for an actual Trade Paperback or Digest format book called “Boytoon Adventures #1”.

Now this is the part where you might think I am a bit nutty, but so as not to confuse folks, (because I most certainly am not about to give up my traditional style of drawing), I am going to use a public pen name for Boytoon Adventures.  While drawing in this style, I will be doing so as “Bryce Peters”.  Why Bryce Peters you ask?   Well, here’s a little bit of background info for you.  WAAAAAY back at the start of my career as an artist of gay male erotic comics, I seriously considered using a pen name.  Bryce Peters was the name I came up with.  Obviously, I decided not to go with a pen name for my art back then… but for the Boytoon Adventures stuff, it seems like a fun and appropriate alias!

Anyhow, back to the book itself.  The Digest will be roughly 70 full-color pages and feature four complete 15-page short stories.

The first story features Locus, Flamer, Disco and Jung, and picks up at the point where Locus joins Captain Jung’s crew.  I introduce a cool new villain in this story which I found lots of fun! The second story is a Ghostboy story, which will also feature Diablo.  The third is a Zahn story, which will focus on a scene barely touched upon in Zahn #1 – prepare to enter into the swamps of Lyrria.

As for the fourth story, Fraser has penned that one.  It features some of the characters from the Initiation.  This is exciting for us because it marks our first real collaboration on a comic together.

The really fun thing about Boytoon Adventures is that for me as an artist, it is a liberating change of pace.  My usual style is so precise and painstaking, and this new way of drawing is a little more carefree and loose.  Suffice it to say that this has come at a great point in my life.  I’ve been feeling the need for a little freshness in my art, and Boytoon Adventures is really providing that!

Also a real plus about this style is that I can generally turn out about 2 – 3 pages per day, fully penciled and inked.  My usual style can take a full day just to ink.  So again, big difference! LOL!

I am an artist that enjoys working on lots of different things at once.  Right now I have Felinoids #3, Deimos #2, Rapture #3, A new Cube book and a few other projects on the go… but Boytoon Adventures has been a really great way to keep creative while doing so in a very different way from what I am used to.  That rocks!

Just so you know, this title is cartoonier, but it is no less adult.  I have made a point of coming up with scripts that are super sexy and filled with loads of man-sex.  The cum is still spurting, and the Boytoons are just as hard.  The stories are no less important to me in this project either, and each one fits into the continuity of the featured characters perfectly.  In this case “cartoony” will certainly not equal “silly”!

So if all goes according to plan, Boytoon Adventures #1 should be available by the end of 2008.  That may seem ambitious for such a new project so late in the season… but consider this.  I am already 30 pages in! Not bad for something I started a mere few months ago!

I hope you will stay tooned dear friends, ‘cause I will post more artwork from Boytoon Adventures #1 as I get more done.  And I hope that even though the style is more cartoony that you will all give it a chance.  I think you might be pleasantly surprised.

Meanwhile, I must get back to packing up so that I am ready to go when the Movers arrive.  Wish me luck and I’ll be back as soon as I am settled in.  I’ll have more goodies for ya then, and I’ll get around to answering all of your wonderful comments on the Ali and Sean Z post then too!  Talk to you soon!

Hugz + Kisses to all of you!
Patrick XOXO

New Ghostboy Fan Art from DHC Underground!

Evenin’ Folks…

Just a quick little posting this evening to say hi and to tell you all that I am really appreciating your support for BTM’s new home. It’s great to see so many familiar faces here ( in comment form of course! ;) and your emails of support are also greatly appreciated.

I’ve been working on a bunch of promo illustrations for the upcoming Camili-Cat: Felinoids #3, which are a BLAST to do. So many new Felinoids… tons of different ones. I am really looking forward to sharing them with you.

And lastly, but not leastly, this evening I wanted to post this gorgeous piece of Ghostboy fan art, which was created by Dominic of DHC Underground. Here’s what he had to say about this piece: “Ghostboy has to be one of my favorites of Patrick’s characters, he’s just cool beans hehe. I had fun with this picture, it’s nice to try different things. Tried to get him as close to Patrick Fillion’s style as I could and here he is!

Well, I for one think he did an AMAZING job on this image. You got my style down verrrrrry closely! It’s almost hard to imagine that I didn’t actually draw this picture! LOL! Seriously Dominic, a beautiful job and a very thoughtful gift. I love it!

If you’d like to see more awesome art from DHC Underground, check out the blog!

More from me very soon, dear friends, including new art and new artists for you to discover! Have a fantastic evening!

Hugz + kisses,

Patrick XOXO
