My ALPHA FLIGHT fan art on the “COVERED” Blog!

Art should be inspiring! As a kid growing up, developing my own artistic skills, few inspired me more than the legendary John Byrne. Alpha Flight was (and the John Byrne classic run still is) one of my all-time favorite comic series. The characters are diverse and exciting, and beautifully designed in their elegant simplicity and attention to detail.

A few years back, I decided to re-interpret the now classic Alpha Flight #6 cover… well, re-imagine it a little I suppose. This was my way of thanking John Byrne for all of his extraordinary work and for showing my appreciation for Snowbird, who has ALWAYS been my favorite Alphan.

I recently came upon a terrific Blog called “COVERED: Artists re-interpreting comic covers”.  The Blog is run by Robert Goodin, a wonderful artist with a great love of comics.  He’s assembled an AMAZING collection of gorgeous re-imaginings of classic comic book covers by dozens and dozens of talented artists.

This Blog simply has to be seen to be believed.  There are some real gems in Robert’s collection.  Anyway, I just had to submit my Alpha Flight #6 cover to him, and couldn’t be more ecstatic to tell you that he added it to his Blog collection this morning.

Patrick Fillion's Alpha Flight #6 cover re-interpretation now on "Covered" Blog.

You guys ABSOLUTELY MUST check “COVERED” out. It’s so creative and fun, and seeing all that work by all those creative artists collected in one place is incredibly inspiring.  Thanks Robert for putting all of this together, and for adding my modest little cover to your collection.

Enjoy my friends. I know I sure did!

Cheers to all, Patrick XOXOX

PS — And just for the fun of it, here’s a little “variant” of my version of Alpha Flight #6’s cover… more closely resembling John Byrne’s classic masterpiece! Enjoy! :D

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #201 – The Gift of Art!

Hello my friends…

It’s been a while since I last posted.  It’s been quite a busy September.  I’ve been working like a madman on LOCUS #1, and you’ll be glad to learn that the book is officially HALF done. Yup, I’m twelve completely penciled and inked pages in, and boy-o-boy, I am really stoked about this one.

But enough about Locus for now — today, I want to share some terrific artwork with you. It was my birthday in August, and a bunch of my friends and fans got together to create some exceptionally beautiful birthday art gifts for me.  Many of them arrived via the wonderful Dinosaurprince, while others came from colleagues and pals, such as the amazing Eric Mars (who is currently hard at work drawing SPOT and the ANI-MALES #1, written by yours truly! I’ll have more on that subject for you shortly!)

Spot getting it on with Imanno! So many Class Comics fans dream about this particular team-up, now made reality by the amazing Eric Mars.

This stunning illustration of Zahn was drawn by the wonderful Aneros, based upon a concept by Dinosaurprince.

This time Aneros drew Incubus, the sexy son of Diablo!

I was so moved by all of these gorgeous art gifts.  You guys know how much I ADORE fan art, so needless to say, these were the perfect gifts for the boy who loves to see how other artists interpret his characters.

While some of these beautiful pieces weren’t strictly sent as birthday gifts to me, they did arrive around the time of my birthday, so I thought it would be nice to show them off here as well.

The wickedly talented JOTTO decided to give Ghostboy a gift this year, and designed him a sexy new costume!

A truly magnificent illustration of Zahn getting off, courtesy of the amazing Porkchopz-r-us!

Lucky Locus meets the gorgeous Jedi, Kit Fisto! Way to use the force, dude! Wicked art by Fallen based on a concept by Dinosaurprince.

And speaking of Kit, check out this adorable Chibi version of him by the lovely Demona.

We all know Cam loves Basketball. This very sexy illustration of a younger Cam comes form the fertile imagination of Dinosaurprince and was drawn by a very talented young artist named Karulox.

SUH-WEEET! The incredible Ink-B drew me a super sexy, electrifying male version of STORM!!! AWESOME!!

Here's anotehr superb pic from Fallen. This time he's created a rendition of Meezok from Zahn #2. Love those Priests of Ajul!

This beautiful illustration of the sultry Space Cadet and his hung-like-a-horse pal, Strider is brought to us by the fabulous Dinosaurprince and the incredible Maduinshorn.

Spot arrests Dinosaurprince's sexy boxer, Joey. So THAT's what those sticks are for! LOL! A gorgeous piece of art courtesy of Dinosaurprince and the incredibly talented Leon de Leon!

And speaking of Leon, get a load of this HOT HOT HOT pic of Diablo and a delicious Birthday cake with creamy filling! Leon apparently wanted to try the Bryce Peters/Boytoon Adventures style of art since he first saw the book, and this is the SUPERB result!

And now, the sexy variant, featuring the cocks of Locus and Mako Finn! Which candle would you BLOW first? HA! HA! HA!

Enjoy my friends. I will try to post on a more regular basis… but you all know what I need, don’t you?  Yup.  More hours in my days!  HA! HA! HA!

Love to you all, and thanks so very much to all of the wonderful artists who took the time to create these superb drawings for me!  You guys ROCK!

Hugz + kisses,
Patrick XOXO

ilLUSTrations: The Art of Patrick Fillion.

"ilLUSTrations: the art of Patrick Fillion" coming Summer 2010, from Bruno Gmunder.

Hello my friends.

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the long weekend. Happy Easter to you all, by the way!

It’s been a really busy month here at Class Comics, for several very exciting reasons. I’m near the end of Zahn #2 — yes, you heard me — Zahn #2 is almost complete!  LOL!  I’m happy to anounce that I am on track for the Summer 2010 release deadline!

I’ve also been keeping busy assembling art and creating brand new images for my new hard cover art book called “ilLUSTrations: the Art of Patrick Fillion” with publisher Bruno Gmunder.  I couldn’t be happier about this!  Bruno Gmunder is a fantastic publisher and they produce nothing but the most beautiful, highest quality books.  It’s always a real pleasure working with them on a project.

The book is due out in August 2010, and I’m working hard putting every aspect together.  You can check out my personal website for more info on the book… and I’ve put together a little sneak preview promo montage for you guys to enjoy… you’ll notice that I even slipped in a portion of a piece I like to call “Spot fucks Cam” part 2.  Part 1 is also in the book as an exclusive image and I call that one “Cam fucks Spot”!  Needless to say, your requests to see Spot and Cam together did not fall upon deaf ears!  LOL!

More from me soon, boys and girls!

Loads of luv to ya, Patrick XOXO

My UGLY obsession! A post a day – Day 7

It's hard to look pretty when you're posing with a bunch of Uglies! HA! HA! HA! ;)

It's hard trying to look pretty when you're posing with a bunch of Uglies! HA! HA! HA! ;)

Hiya Gang.

Well, there you have it — A whole week of posts.  What a fun time we’ve had.  And you know what?  I’ve decided to do another full week of posting starting tomorrow! Yup — another 7 posts in a row!  WAH-HOO! I have some really cool stuff planned for next week, so be sure to toon in!

Meanwhile, I thought I would end this week of posts with a little silliness.  Fraser insisted it was time I get me a new Facebook profile pic, so he had me pull out my Uglies and strike a pose or two with my colorful, little friends.

HOLY CRAP!?! How the Hell did I ever end up with so many of these things?!?

Oh my God! They... are... everywhere...!

Yes!  I am obsessed. Uglydolls are a total obsession of mine.  I admit this freely.  Most toys are.  I think it’s very important to stay young at heart and be a big kid for as long as you can.

So there you have it. I have the Uglies. In fact I can’t seem to have enough Uglies. LOL!  But can you blame me?  They’re so freakin’ adorable and squishy!

Enjoy these silly little pics my friends, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow for a fresh new post.

BIG Hugz + weekend kisses, Patrick XOXO

PS — I certainly hope this does not ultimately shatter the image of lusty, man-drawing comic artist you might have of me.  What can I say — everyone needs a day off!  HA! HA! HA! XOXO

Okay! I admit it -- I'm just a big kid at heart! LOL!

Please forgive my colorful obsession, folks. I promise to be back to my Boytoon drawing ways tomorrow! XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #188 – On my drawing board – A post a day – Day 2

Boytoons Magazine #188 cover

Hello friends…

I’ve been at my drawing table for a few weeks now, and I am happy to report that my post-Holiday blues (also known as the bitch called artist block!) seems to be coming to an end.  And you know what that means… I’ve been feeling creative again.

Of late, I’ve been concentrating on Zahn #2 primarily.  Book #2 picks up a few weeks after the end of the first issue, and almost directly after the events that happened in Striptease #1. You remember… when Zahn and Jonah meet Cauldron for the first time.

Zahn and Cauldron set out to assemble a great army of Varda. An excerpt from Class Comics' up-coming Zahn #2.  Story and art by Patrick Fillion, colors by Golden Key.

So Zahn decides that he needs to assemble an army to protect Varda from the evil metal beasts that threaten it.  Naturally, he wants only but the best on this army of his, and Cauldron knows where they might find four men who would make perfect additions to this army of Varda.  So off they go in search of these fellow gay barbarians.

Jonah still doesn’t seem to trust Cauldron, while Zahn is more than happy to fuck both of them… A LOT!  And I do mean a lot!  LOL!

I am sort of making it a personal/creative challenge for myself to write in and draw as much mansex as I possibly can fit in this issue.  Hey, I know what you guys like.  But don’t worry, because as I always say, sex scenes don’t have to come at the expense of a good story, and I have written an issue that really deepens the mysteries set in motion in issue #1… I even answer a few of the questions posed in book #1 along the way.

Meanwhile, Space Cadet’s first issue is nearing completion.  I wrote it and Bob, a new artist to Class Comics, illustrated it.  Bob’s job is done (and what a fantastic job he’s done!!) and the 1st issue is absolutely gorgeous.  Now I just have to complete the cover for it.  I love Space Cadet so much as a character, and even though I didn’t draw the interior art, I wanted to do the covers so that I could still be involved in the art in at least a small way.

Space Cadet’s 2-issue mini series is set in Ordovica, the realm of the satyrs.  If you recall the events that happened in Rapture #3, Vallan asked Space Cadet for help against the evil Baron Von Phallus.  Eager to really test out his new powers, Space Cadet accepted the plea for help.  But few things ever go as planned when you’re a sexy gay superhero it seems, and when Space Cadet arrives in Ordovica, he’s in for a BIG surprise.

Bob’s art is truly lovely and does Space Cadet great justice.  As for me, it’s such a HUGE thrill to have the opportunity to feature Class Comics’ most popular and prominent African American character in his very own series.  I think you guys will really love it.  I’ll devote an issue of BTM to Space Cadet #1 and give you a sneak peek at Bob’s art shortly.

Also on my drawing table is Stephane’s Funhouse of Fornication #1.  Though I have yet to draw Stephane’s parts of this book, I have drawn an awful lot of pages that feature Spot… you know, my sexy dog boy.  He’s on the cover of today’s issue… and he gets officially introduced in this book, and I am having a blast exploring this very fun character.

While I have yet to take a real chunk out of this book, it’s cool to see it finally come together after having it in the back of my head for such a long time.

In a nutshell, these are my big projects.  I will admit that I am also already working on what will potentially become Boytoon Adventures #2.  At this time I’m focusing on a Deimos story called “the Spell”.  Speaking of Deimos, Logan’s work on Deimos #2 is INCREDIBLE!!!  I will be sharing some of that with all of you very soon as well.

And what kind of writer/artist would I be if I didn’t have a few other projects/ideas on the go in the background as well?  Well, maybe one that would actually release projects more quickly, but certainly not one who would feel as creatively fulfilled as this one!  LOL!

More from me soon, my friends!
Hugz + kisses,
Patrick XOXO
