I've already got them lined up for you. Thanks for visiting any enjoy!!
Every Week! Robotic Madness - Free Web Comic by Jason May - Robots, Butterflies, Monsters, Evil Robots and Much More!
I haven't really been keeping up with my weekly art blog, but I have been uploading a weekly web comic for quite some time. I'm hoping to start posting art there each week on a Wednesday or a Friday. Hopefully I can start fitting that into my schedule along with freelance and family life.

Thanks guys! See you on Madness Monday for another installment of Robotic Madness, with everyone's favorite robot, G.A.R.K.
Today I sat down and worked out a design I'd been planning for a while. I wanted to design a mermaid holding a cheese burger. I do a lot of surfing and my surf buddy and I had come up with a legend of the mermaid burger. Essentially, the burger mermaid preys upon hungry surfers when they are finished with their sessions. I also want to use this graphic on the new wood handplanes I've been shaping. Folks use them to body surf with. It gives you extra lift while your flying down the face of the wave. Here's a sample pic of the graphic as well as a guy handplaning. Pretty cool, right?
I've been doing a lot of freelance work which is cutting into my personal sketch and art time. I hope to have some more art for you soon, but paying the bills is certainly a huge perk at the moment!
Hey folks. Chris Gugliotti of Playing Dead and I created an image to start using for promotional purposes. We are letting the world know that we will be doing many comic conventions together. We want to invite you to come visit us, talk with us, maybe commission a sketch., If you're eager and don't want to wait for a convention, please visit my commission page and send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you. Until then, enjoy this really fun image!!
Last night I was working late in the studio making sure I'll hit my deadline for a Scholastic children's book I'm working on. My eyes felt like the were going to explode and I decided I'd cool my brain down by doing some digital doodling. This book cover is what came from my doodle session. Enjoy. You may see this book in the future. Who knows!?
This week I bring you some speed painting! I build this deck from scratch with a friend. We laminated 8 sheets or rock hard maple in a home made mold. I figured a sweet custom freeride board deserved some awesome graphics. Enjoy the video!
Today I posted a video of me painting a guitar that was given to me recently. I was very excited when my friend gave me this guitar in pieces. I rewired and rebuilt just about everything. New pickups, strings, pots etc... I still need new tuners. But until then, at least I can enjoy the new crazy robot and Pee Wees Playhouse inspired graphics. Enjoy watching it unfold!
If you're one of the people on Facebook that "like" my artist page, then you know I posted up a free inked robot drawing last week for the first fan to email me their address. I plan on doing this more through out the year, so head over to my Facebook art page and click "like." The only qualification other than being the first person to email me is that you are a fan of the page. Here's the link.
And here is the piece that was given away last week. It's heading out to Boston in a day or two.
