I was recently asked to paint a custom skate deck using Boardstix brand markers. This was a Christmas gift for a local Rhode Islander's son. It was a fun, exciting and simple process. My customer had some ideas and was looking for a composition created with my very own art style. I really enjoy when people appreciate my artwork enough to give me a loose idea to create a composition. Not only does this simplify the process, but it allows me considerable creative freedom resulting in a more powerful product. You can view a video of me finishing off the deck. Unfortunately my GoPro had some issues during the first part of my painting.

I've been spending a lot of time at www.jimmycakes.com and Tumblr recently. If you have a Tumblr account and would like to see my artwork, my surfing, or my craftsmanship pop up on your feed every now and then, please come visit. As an incentive, of sorts, I've started posting my new followers up on my robot's computer monitor. I got this idea from my pal and fellow Titan of Cartoonitude, Chris Gugliotti. He does something very similar with a chalk board.
Come one come all!! This Saturday, the Titans of Cartoonitude, Jason May and Chris Gugliotti, are invading Comiconn in Trumbull, CT. We we will have original art, books, prints and delightful conversations! Guaranteed to delight people of all ages!*
Just a few more days left. While you're waiting for this fabulous even to arrive please drop by my web comic Robotic Madness and Chris' web comic Playing Dead. If you like them please share them with friends and family. These are free comics we are creating for you folks. Make them last by making them popular! We'll see you there!!
Chris has a special comic which he launched on Facebook just now. You can only view it there at the moment. Click here to check it out. It will be available on www.playingdeadthecomic.com on Wednesday. But why wait?
*I can't promise we'll delight, but it sounds real good!
I've been away from webcomics for too long. It's time that I bring it back and fill it with piles of what you all love. Robots. Yes! You've been asking for almost ten years. Deviant Society and Zennon3 left the web over ten years ago! I can't believe it. Soured by that experience, I stayed away from webcomics. But after pondering my dilemma, con after con, I decided to get back in the game. Get ready for an exciting adventure with your new robotic friend G.A.R.K. and the strange characters he'll meet along the way.
Visit www.jimmycakes.com to read the web comic now.
I'd like to get my original art from my Robot Coloring Books into homes. There's no sense in letting it sit around my studio in a pile. I want it to be seen and I know you want to see it. For a limited time, I'm offering up all the original art from those books for ten dollars per illustration. If you want to buy two, three or more, let me know. I'm charging $5 for shipping. Combine that on as many pieces as you'd like. How can you beat $45 for four pieces of original inked art? Sent to your door! Head over to my facebook page now to check things out and shoot me an email if you want to stake a claim on a page. Thanks folks.
