Come visit Jason May and Chris Gugliotti, for Free Comic Book Day, at Richie's Comic Cabana in Waterbury CT. I will have Helmights! #1, my coloring book, prints, books and commissions. Bring in a book that I have drawn and I'll happily sign it and do a quick little sketch in it for you!
It's been a while since I've been able to do a Free Comic Book Day. I anticipate a great turn-out from the comic community. Covid has really put a damper on live events for pop culture enthusiasts. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or reach out on social media. If you have not joined my mailing list, you can do so here!
See you Saturday!
Just a few more days left until Easter and I wanted to give you an idea for a last minute Easter gift. Head over to Amazon via THIS LINK and purchase yourself a copy of LEGO Eggstra Special Easter. Another option is to head to your local bookstore and pick up a copy.
I created all the artwork for the book- covers and interiors. I had a great time drawing this book as well as LEGO I Love You To Pieces. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and we'll see you Wednesday night to draw live on my YouTube channel!
In between projects I've been trying to update my YouTube, social media and website. It had been quite some time since I spent time on updates. What motivated me was my latest publications and the success of my streaming show and latest comic.
Over the past year, I've been working on two LEGO Books - LEGO I Love You To Pieces and LEGO Eggstra-Special Easter Special. Both of these books are published by Penguin Random House and were a joy to work on. I'm really looking forward to see what you all think of them. I worked very hard on them and it was very difficult not to talk about. I'm hoping to have some behind the scenes stuff for my Patreons within the coming months.
The Jason May Draw Club House was a child of the Covid epidemic. Last year I started doing some live streams for kids so they could have some access to art while stuck at home. A few weeks into this endeavor I invited my friend and illustrator, Chris Gugliotti. At nearly 100 fun filled episodes, the show has grown substantially, both fan base wise as well as quality. And all of that is thanks you our viewers. Thank you all so much.
Lastly, Helmights! issue #1 came out just after I started working on LEGO I Love You To Pieces, so I apologize that #2 isn't ready. The good news is that Helmights! #2 is almost roughed out and I hope to start on the pencils and inks soon. Check me on social media for up to the week updates, join my mailing list for the very occasional updates and head over to the YouTube channel if you'd like to interact now and then. Or if you're doing the dishes. Just toss it on the ol'device and zone out as you scrub away.
I am so excited to release my first book of 2022 with Penguin Random House. Last month LEGO I Love You To Pieces came out and I couldn't be more excited. Pre-order today and receive the book next week. I had a great time illustrating the story of Duncan. I don't want to give too much away so I'll give you the synopsis.
Bring any of my published works to one of my appearances and I'll be happy to sign it and do a quick little doodle in it. Thank you all for your support!
A delightful Easter storybook starring LEGO® minifigures!
Duncan’s favorite day is Easter, and his dreams come true when the Easter Bunny needs his help delivering eggs. But it’s a big responsibility and he’s not sure he can do it. Will a little confidence and some LEGO® creativity get the job done? This sweet and silly storybook is the perfect gift for LEGO fans ages 4 to 7 on Easter or any day!

Today was the first day of the HopArts Trail. We will be displaying again tomorrow from 10am-4pm at 5 Lakeside Drive Extension located in Hope Valley Rhode Island. This year is the fifteen year of the event and the inaugural year for me. Drop by tomorrow and say hello.
I'm happy to say that people came out in droves today and purchased a lot of art and books. I feel very supported by my community and I thank you all. It was nice to meet some new faces and expose people to my work. Not many people in my town know how many artists are sitting in their studios producing art that surrounds them on a daily basis.
Thank you so much to Mike Lynch for hosting me and to all the people who came out and showed their support.
Hello Jason May fans! Next month on the Jason May Draw Club House our theme will be Thunderbolts and Lightening (and Fireworks). Please comment below or head over to our Discord server and start giving us theme of the week ideas. If your theme is picked, you will get a shout out! Each month I will continue to add to show. We thank you for your support so far, because we would not be doing it without you!
And in other news- I just put in a one hundred count print run of my self published book Helmights!. There will be more information regarding the book soon. Stay tuned if you want to get your hands on a first printing of issue #1. I'm currently working on writing issue #2 while tackling my freelance work and planning the show. Again, thank you for all of your support! I'll see you all Wednesday night at 7pm EST. I'm looking forward to drawing with you! If you can't make it during the live stream, please check out our re-runs. Leave a comment and let us know what you think on each video. We really appreciate it!
Hey guys! Sorry I've been radio silent on here for a bit, but I've been working on a lot of stuff. If you watch the weekly YouTube stream you should be fairly caught up. If not, here's a little info for you:
Last week I ordered the final proof for Helmights! issue #1. As soon as the proof is cleared, I will be printing up a limited number of books for the first printing. The book will be available to my Patreons first and then will be available shortly after on my website.
I will also be attending the Mohegan Sun Comic Book Convention - Terrificon! I should be sitting next to my pal, Franco all weekend. I'll let you know the details as the show gets closer.
There is a secret project brewing! I have been hired to work on a book, which I am not at liberty to discuss right now, but the art will take me well through the summer. As soon as I can elaborate on that project, I will. The fastest way to get information on any of my projects would be via my Patreon or my weekly Jason May Draw Club House show on YouTube.
"But, Jason - what about Beamed, Robotic Madness and all your passion projects?" Don't worry, they are all still in the works. They may be taking a while among all of my paid gigs, but I am still working on them diligently in my free time outside of my work and family.
Jason May is currently putting together a crowdfunding campaign for his new book, Helmights!. He would love it if you shared your ideas and suggestions for rewards, perks and add-ons. The best place to make suggestions would be on the Jason May Draw Discord server. If you'd prefer to contact him via social media, you may do so on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
Be sure to watch Jason May Draw Club House every Wednesday night at 7pm EST and here the latest information about Jason May and Chris Gugliotti's projects. Be sure to bring some pencils and paper along and draw with us too!
As always- thank you for taking your time and drawing with me! Please spread the word by sharing, liking and subscribing.
Join us tonight for episode 40 of Jason May Draw Club House! Thank you so much for joining us on this journey and helping us grow the show. We are looking forward to providing you with entertainment an imagination throughout the new year. I encourage you to share the links you see and spread the word. Hopefully, we will see the return of some comic conventions in 2021 and we will be able to meet up in person.
Please join me on the Jason May Draw YouTube channel and comment to let me know what type of videos you like best. I recently made it even easier to get to my YouTube channel by using a custom URL. youtube.com/jasonmaydraw.
Thank you again!
