BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #179 – The Amazing Kingdom of Dinosaurprince!

Boytoons Magazine #179 cover

My friends, allow me to direct your attention to the amazing kingdom of Dinosaurprince, where virtually dozens of incredibly sexy Boytoons dwell.

For those of you not yet familiar with Dinosaurprince’s Kingdom, let me fill you in a little.  Dinosaurprince is what I call, a true “Patron of the male erotic arts”.  He is unrelenting in his support of established AND emerging artists of gay male erotica, and has commissioned what by now is probably hundreds of illustrations.

The subject of these commissioned pieces range from characters from the Class Comics universe (which you know I love!!) such as Naked Justice, Space Cadet, Zahn and Cam, to characters of pop culture fame.  Think of Disney hunks, video game heroes, and Saturday morning cartoon protagonists.  Also featured are his own original character creations.

Indeed, while Dinosaurprince loves to serve up his naughty visions of Darkstalkers characters (he simply LOVES Rikuo!), he also has a real talent for creating OCs that are unique and very fresh.

I am of course referring to his incredibly hawt prehistoric boys.  My personal fave, Dimata, is featured on today’s cover, drawn by the monstrously talented Ink B/Adonix!  But Dimata is only one of the many hunks that Dinosaurprince has dreamed up.  They populate his Kingdom with unabashed sensuality and are brought to life by a number of artists with which Dinosaurprince frequently collaborates.

My interest in Dinosaurprince’s Kingdom is twofold.  Obviously, I love seeing the gorgeous artwork he commissions.  I love discovering his original characters through the images he envisions and has translated to paper by these very talented artists.

But what I appreciate most about Dinosaurprince is that he constantly encourages the gay erotic arts community by commissioning up and coming artists and helping them find their artistic voice.  He doesn’t just pay artists to draw his visions, he makes them realize that their art is worthwhile and exciting on a number of levels.  That’s worth more than any fee!

He is a positive voice in a community whose emerging artists need reassurance that their work has a purpose and a place on the arts scene.  He helps creators feel worthwhile.  That is extremely important.

So if you haven’t yet visited Dinosaurprince’s Kingdom, I truly urge you to do so now.  You will discover a multitude of fantastic new characters who are always ready to seduce you.  You’ll very likely uncover new artistic talent that you didn’t even know was out there.  And you will most probably find yourself hooked to a Blog whose owner and operator continues to fill with his wonderfully creative, erotic visions, and positive reinforcement of the validity of gay erotic art.

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #159 – Treasures at the Y!

boytoons-magazine-159-cover

Hello dear friends…

I hope you have all been well!  I really want to apologize for not posting anything new in such a long time!  As you probably guessed, my work at Class Comics has kept me unusually busy in the past few weeks.  But I am NOT complaining, because the reason I’ve been so busy is… Naked Justice!!!

Yup – everyone’s favorite heroic redhead is really getting the star treatment.  To begin with, his new book, NAKED JUSTICE: BEGINNINGS #1 is just around the corner.  That’s meant a lot of work preparing for the book, including creating a mini-site for the new series and other cool promo stuff.  Basically, we want this Naked Justice series to do as well as possible, so the team and I have been giving it our all.  I’ll have more on Naked Justice’s new book very soon.

Meanwhile, I want to talk about the Y!Gallery.  More specifically, I’d like to tell you about all the terrific Class Comics fan art that’s been posted since the creation of Club Class there and the wonderful people and artists I’ve recently met there.

I have always said one of my most favorite things about this job is that it permits me to interact with so many talented folks.  I love artists!!! And I love to see how other artist draw my Boytoons.

You’ll notice that on today’s cover, I’m featuring a SUPERB illustration of Camili-Cat getting a heavenly blow job by none other than my favorite Darkstalker character, Rikuo.  I almost fell off my chair when I saw this image for the first time!  It was created by a fantastic artist who goes by the name of Neo 123!  This boy’s work is incredible, and his take on Cam is purrfection.

There are of course a lot of other wonderful artists at the Y! who’ve taken time out of their schedules to draw Class Comics characters, and it is always such an incredible joy to see their interpretations.   I’ve posted just a few of the fan arts I’m referring to here today to give you a little taste!

My pal Gninrom even created a special character for me called Maxie Mouse.  He’s the perfect partner for Camili-Cat!  LOL!  What’s cool is that Gninrom drew Maxie in my illustrative style — it’s amazing how close he got to it!  I could very well be an endangered species!  HA! HA! HA!

But there is someone else at the Y! Gallery that I want to talk about here today.  His name is Dinosaurprince, and he truly ROCKS!  Why?  Well, he isn’t an artist himself, but what makes him so special is his absolutely love and unconditional support of the up and coming artists on the Y!  He has commissioned countless artists to draw his visions ( a good many of them include Rikuo! Yummmm!).  In fact, he is the one who commissioned Neo to draw Cam and Rikuo on the beach.

I am always impressed by people who believe in young talent and who go out of their way to encourage.  Dinosaurprince is truly an incredible asset to the gay erotic arts community because at the end of the day, he is there to not only encourage artists, but to support them by commissioning them to do what they love best.

Dinosaurprince, you truly are a class act!  And everything you do for the gay erotic arts community is greatly appreciated.  We need more folks like you!!! LOL!

If you haven’t checked out the Y! Gallery yet, I encourage you to do so.  I must confess that since my first encounter with them went so poorly, I expected little this time around.  But what I have found is a community that is there to encourage and network and that is always welcoming of new talent and fans of the genre.  I’ve been happily surprised by this, and since re-joining I’ve made some really wonderful acquaintances and connections.

In the next few days, I have big plans for Boytoons Magazine – including a face lift and some really great forthcoming issues.  I’ve delayed posting my issue about the Class Comics line up of titles for 2009 until I had a lot of art and goodies to share with you.  This year is gonna be crazy good for Class – think Logan’s Porky #3, Boytoon Adventures #1, Sworn #1, Angelface #2, the Initiation #2, Felinoids #3 and SOOOOOO much more – not to mention the new Naked Justice: Beginnings with breathtaking art by the amazing Jacob Mott which will leave you begging for more!

All that is coming up soon!  Stay tooned, dear friends.

Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO
