GHOSTBOY & DIABLO “7 DAYS” COMING SOON!

The official "Ghostboy and Diablo 7 Days!" mini comic promo poster. Art by Patrick Fillion for Class Comics.

Hey Gang…

I’ve very excited to show you all the Promo Poster for my all new GHOSTBOY & DIABLO mini comic, coming February 2012 from Class Comics. The mini is called “7 Days” and I wrote and drew it. In this story, Diablo gets kidnapped by an obsessive fan and it’s up to Ghostboy to find his boyfriend before it’s too late.  This story is a little prequel to GHOSTBOY AND DIABLO #1 and is only going to be available as a Class Access digital mini comic, until it’s eventual release in Rapture #5.

You GB&D fans are NOT gonna want to miss this.  I’ve done my best to pull out ALL THE STOPS in this little gem, and trust me when I tell you that Diablo gets put through major paces for an entire week while Ghostboy searches for him!

I’ll keep you posted and let you know when it becomes available.  In the meantime I hope you enjoy the poster.

Hugz + kisses, Patrick XOXOX

Instead it will turn out to be one unexpected sexual encounter after another! Nothing could have prepared him for the moments of pleasure that await him at each turn in the road. While it wasn’t what he set out for, it will be a day that Aki will remember for the rest of his life.

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #215 – HOTCHA WORKS!

What better way to start 2012 than with Hotcha’s incredible new website!  YES!  After many years of admiring Hotcha’s gorgeous and supremely sexy art via the Y!Gallery, you can now enjoy it on the official Hotcha website; HOTCHA WORKS!

The site’s lovely and clearly designed with ease of navigation in mind.  All the illustrations are presented in large, easy-to-drool-over sizes which really emphasize the beauty of Hotcha’s art.  Hotcha even takes the opportunity to treat us to some personal notes on most of the art, revealing what inspired him to draw them.  He turns us on further by providing some narratives and written context which set up some of the illustrations perfectly.  Clearly, Hotcha is an artist who loves to share his work and that’s good for us the fans, because the treats keep on coming.

Meet DRAKE, Hotcha's sexy signature character!

From his original characters like the ultra-fuckable Drake and his equally to die for counterparts, Ike and Eli, to his Dragonball fan art, his  interpretations of fellow artist Ephorox’s stable of studs, and even his stunning Class Comics fan art, Hotcha delivers the eye candy in his usual spectacular manner. HOTCHA WORKS does not disappoint, and most of Hotcha’s classic and recent pieces are there to be adored by us ravenous fans.

Hotcha draws Drake fucking the Hell outta Ephorox's sexy feline character, Tyon!

Now a couple of years ago, Hotcha was in Vancouver and Fraser and I got to meet up with him.  I absolutely love this boy!  He’s as sweet as he is talented, and the opportunity to chat with him in person was truly amazing.  He’s so down to Earth and talking erotic comics and art with him was a real blast.  His love of his craft is apparent, and his raw and unabashedly raunchy works are charged with an erotic power that you can’t help but admire.

Poor Drake can't take much more from this horribly horny cyclops!

But Hotcha’s work isn’t without context.  He’s careful to set up a back story for every image he creates, which is what I love most about him. That really charges his work with a palpable sense of sensuality that is hard to ignore.

So while the Holiday Season may be over, I personally consider HOTCHA WORKS as a Christmas present, one that I’ve been wanting for years, and one that I most certainly was NOT disappointed to finally receive.  And best of all, knowing how prolific this super talented artist is, I know it’s a gift that’s gonna keep on giving.

Do yourself a favor, and head on over to HOTCHA WORKS RIGHT NOW!  If you don’t already know Hotcha and his signature character Drake, you’re not gonna want to miss out a minute longer. And if you’re a long-time Hotcha fan, you’ll love revisiting Hotcha’s classic works, and discovering his latest offerings!

Ike gets it on with a sexy serene angel! Beautifully erotic art by HOTCHA!

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #214 — The 2011 Christmas Issue!

Hello My dear friends…

I hope this CHRISTMAS ISSUE of BOYTOONS MAGAZINE finds you all doing well and enjoying the Holiday Season.

This year for my BTM Christmas edition, I hope you’ll FORGIVE me because I wanted to do something completely different.

LOL! ) In any case, this little video message may be horrifyingly cheezy and embarrassing, but it’s ABSOLUTELY from the heart!

And as a little gift (that is less hard on the ears and hopefully easier on the eyes! LOL!), please enjoy this naughty new Camili-Cat Christmas Wallpaper Design.

My time at BENT-CON 2011!

So I’ve been home from BENT-CON for almost two weeks now, and I don’t mind telling you that I am STILL BUZZED from my INCREDIBLE experience.

Both Fraser and I were on a natural high the entire weekend. The opportunity to meet some of our fans in person and talk with them – with YOU – about our comics and characters was so amazing to us. You really showed us just how appreciated our work is, and for that I cannot thank you enough.

Robert Fraser and Patrick Fillion of Class Comics at BENT-CON 2011.

We really felt that we don’t leave our studio often enough, and that we do in fact NEED to step out and partake in more events like BENT-CON so that we can meet more of our fans. Talking to the real people who love Class Comics has really helped us to identify the things we are doing correctly, the things we need to do more of, as well as some of the things we’ve done that haven’t worked quite as well. These revelations are invaluable as really help to give us a sense of direction for the future.

So again, thank you to all the fans that were able to come and see us in person, and to all the fans who supported us from afar. You know that you guys and gals make this the VERY BEST JOB ON THE PLANET for Fraser and I, and we just love creating our comics for you. You’re the BEST!

Robert Fraser, the writer of the hit comic series "The Initiation" was at BENT-CON 2011, signing comics for fans.

Another aspect of BENT-CON that both Fraser and I completely loved was getting to meet other queer creators. There were so many amazingly talented folks present at BENT-CON – people which I’ve spoken to via email for years – and we finally got to meet in person for the first time.

There are too many to name  here, but I can’t tell you how completely OVERJOYED I was to get the chance to meet folks like Sean Z, Jezza Smilez, Sean Platter, Belasco, JJ Kirby, William Tyler, Jon Macy, Joe Phillips, Brad Rader, Justin Hall, Jeff Jacklin, Michael Kirwan, Alex Woolfson,Wendi Pini, Steven H. Garica– and this impressive list goes on, and on, and on. (Apologies for not listing everyone here — a complete list of all creators and exhibitors is available on the BENT-CON website.) So many creative and inspirational people were present, and I LOVED that artists such as the fabulous Vishis and the wonderful Iceman Blue, who despite not being part of the exhibiting artists, took time out of their weekend to come and say hello to Fraser and I! SO VERY COOL!

After years of email communication and of mutual artistic appreciation, I FINALLY got to meet the incredible JOTTO!  What a pleasure it was getting to see some of his original artwork in the flesh, and to chat with him about his creative process and inspirations.  The man is as sweet as he is talented, and I don’t mind telling you that he treated me to a pile of prints of his gorgeous artwork. Again – BLISS!!!  LOL!

The weekend was like Christmas morning come early! LOL! I got to sample the wares of several creators, and it was so great exchanging comics and art. I do wish I’d had even more time to peruse everyone’s work… but time flew by so fast. However, I HAD to show you this AWESOME sketch that the incomparable BRAD RADER drew for me in my copy of his Vertigo book, “FOGTOWN”.  What a sweetheart! He signed the book for me and drew me this super hung, super sexy Black Hunk as a special treat!  LOL!  I love this!  It’s just one of the many wonderful moments that made BENT-CON so much fun for me.

The awesome BRAD RADER drew me a gorgeous black hunk with the BIGGEST WANG EVER!

The weekend’s panels were also terrific.  Fraser and I were invited as guest speakers on several of them, and we had a fantastic time speaking about our work and on our impression of Gay Erotic art, comics and queer publishing in general.

The Fanboys of the Universe costume contest was a BLAST!  Fans really put a lot of effort into their costumes, and speaking as one of the official judges, I can tell you that picking the winners was NO EASY TASK! Everyone who participated was TOP NOTCH and incredibly creative!

On a personal note, I was so THRILLED to finally get to meet my pal, the fabulous JOHNNY M in person for the very first time. Johnny was as amazing in person as I expected him to be, and more.  The opportunity to solidify such friendships, and renew existing ones was literally PRICELESS and so greatly appreciated.

Johnny M and Patrick Fillion in Amoeba Music, Los Angeles, the weekend of BENT-CON 2011.

I also truly enjoyed meeting emerging artists for the first time.  I got to see some wonderful new artwork and discover the talents of creators whose work I will enjoy watching grow and flourish. Choklit Daddy was one such artist.  Check out his blog for a look at his sexy toons!

So yeah – a great time to be sure! So many wonderful blessings in one all-too short weekend. Connecting with everyone was completely amazing, and being in beautiful Los Angeles was glorious.

As well as BENT-CON, our weekend in LA also brought Fraser and I another very special gift… but I’m reserving that news for down the road. Heh! Heh! Heh!  ;)

So again, thank you all so much – from the fans, to the fellow creators, to the wonderful folks – you all made BENT-CON 2011 such a HUGE success, and such an incredible experience for Fraser and I! :D  Now we’re looking forward to BENT-CON 2012! LOL!

What a treat to finally meet fellow queer comic book creators in person. Fraser and Patrick pose with the hunky Jezza Smilez!

If you’d like to see some more photos from our BENT-CON weekend, check out the official Class Comics BENT-CON report!  And for more info on BENT-CON and official recaps from the event, check out the official BENT-CON website.

And to my beloved readers, thank you as well for your kind words of support and encouragement. My Christmas issue is coming up, and I have a little something special planned for you all.

Much love and smooches all around!  Patrick! XOXOX
