Drawing Show With Comic Artists! Episode 5 and 6 - Murder Hornets and Lairs! Watch Us Draw Live, Every Week
It's been a busy few weeks creating comics and preparing for the weekly show! Thank you all so much for the love and support. I really appreciate it. I'm overdue for a post in my journal, so here are a few updates.
We launched episode five and six over the past two weeks and you can see some images below from both episodes. You should head over to YouTube and watch them. I also created a time-lapse of me coloring the evil villain lair which is also posted on my YouTube page.
This week we announced a contest. I am posting the information below. But you just need to post one of the videos from the Jason May Draw YouTube channel on social media, tell people what you like about it and hashtag it with #jmdclubhousecontest. It's that easy! And we'll ship you a mouse pad and probably something a little extra along with it!
Thank you all again and I hope to see you all on the show on Wednesday at 7pm EST!
I decided I would upload a gif that was made for promoting the show so that viewers would have something fun to download and use. If there are other gifs you'd like to see us make, let us know in the comments below or contact us via social media!
So you missed the Jason May Draw Club House last night? That's okay! I've got you covered. I even added some "special edition" bit and pieces. We had a bit of an issue with our YouTube streaming last night. Maybe it was the fact that Chris has a webcam now! Look at his beautiful face by clicking below and watching this week's episode. The them was Super Villains!
Thank you so much if you watched the new streaming show that I've been working on with, Chris Gugliotti. If you haven't checked it out yet, there are re-runs of the show on my YouTube Channel. Each week, Chris and I sit down and draw together and chat along with the audience. Last week's drawing theme was animals and eye-wear and this week's theme was backgrounds and scenery (thanks to Zach Shepard, our donor from last week who made the request).
Below, you can watch the re-run of Episode #2 and see the images that were created during the show. You can see Episode #1 on my YouTube Channel.
Please leave comments if you can and let us know what you think. Episode #3 is coming next week. You can click here to view the page and set a reminder. See you there!
For those of you interested in donating to the show. Here is the link. If you donate during the show, your coins will fall from "The Pipe" on screen!
The title says it all! (at least most of it)
If you're interested in creating comics, you may eventually want to learn how to color them. I noticed that there are not a lot of videos on YouTube on the details of flatting, so I put together this tutorial. This particular tutorial is geared towards people who want to work in a studio style environment - where a colorist may hire a "flatter" to fill in their pages prior to them adding shading, highlights and adjusting colors. I have flatted for a number of artists and it's very important that it is done correctly. Over the years, I have also hired flatters and sometimes I received flats that ended up being more trouble than they were worth.
"But, Jason, I just want to do all of my artwork on my iPad!"
That is awesome. The iPad and other digital devices are amazing tools to create content on and I would never discourage you from doing so. This tutorial may not be for you. Maybe in the future I'll get an iPad and do some tutorials. Only time will tell. Right now, I'm just trying to help new comic creators get their feet wet. Be sure to leave comments to let me know what you'd like to see or if you have any questions. If you find the information useful, PLEASE hit that like button. Be well and thank you!
Stay tuned for the next video in this series. Cell Shading
Last night was a huge success. Somehow we managed to have over 2,000 views on Facebook shortly after we aired. While the video is no longer available on Facebook, you can watch it right here or visit my YouTube channel. Thanks everyone! See you next Wednesday!
Jason May and Chris Gugliotti have been working the kinks out of live streaming on Facebook and YouTube. We've decided to start streaming our drawing show, Jason May Draw Club House, on every Wednesday at 7pm EST.
Come drop by, say hello and chat with us as we draw. Hopefully the show will evolve with the help of our audience. Join us, subscribe to us and contact us with your ideas. Find it on YouTube or Facebook streaming. All videos will be archived afterward on the Jason May Draw YouTube channel for those of you who miss the live showing.

Due to social distancing, self quarantine and other factors, I'm going to do my best to create some live streams on my YouTube channel. These will be family friendly and hopefully fan driven explorations of drawing. I'm pretty open and interested in hearing from you all at home. To get involved - subscribe to my YouTube Channel and click on the notification button so you don't miss out on a live stream. I haven't done live streams before, so it will be a little bit of a learning curve. They may not all be available for playback afterward depending on how things go.
Latest YouTube Video Premieres tonight! Time-Lapse Warm Up Sketch of Seafaring Strange Guy with his Seagull
Hopefully you've been keeping up to date with my recent videos. Today brings the total up to five warm up sketches. I plan on continuing them or possible changing gears a little at some point. The speed drawings will not go away, but I may sprinkle some how to videos in between geared towards people who want to make comics or people who are interested in seeing the nuts and bolts of making comics as well as tips on drawing!
Please, comment below, on YouTube or on my Instagram to let me know what you think. I cannot create a community without hearing feedback. Until then, I'll continue to create content based on my own interests and hope to hear from you all. Thank you for taking your time and spending it with me and my artwork!
