My 20th Anniversary tribute piece for Mike Mignola’s Hellboy

Here’s the rest of my piece for those interested in checking it out. Unfortunately, it was deemed non-participatory for the tribute show due to Disney’s name & logo being on the actual piece. Oh Disney…

First image: This was my faux VHS Clamshell cover layout.
The fine print at the bottom of the back cover reads: "This is an alternate world-timeline videocassette in which Disney acquired Dark Horse Comics instead of Marvel. May or may not play in this timeline properly. Purchase at your own risk."

But in reality, it is an actual vhs copy of the first Atlantis film I scored off of Ebay.

I chose to put Hellboy in that world because Mike Mignola played a huge hand in the character designs and overall design and look of the film.

Plus I think it’s funny he worked with Disney, and I’m sure other animation fans will get the joke. :)

Back Cover: The text reads-
"From the creative team who brought you The Lion King and The Little Mermaid comes another exciting quest of adventure and the occult. Be a part of the paranormal expedetion and search below the sea for one of the greatest sea monsters of all time… The Mighty Cthulhu.
Join historian Milo Thatch and Hellboy, World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator, as they board the incredible 1,000 foot submarine Ulysses (again) as they head deep into the heart of the mysterious sea. Things take an unexpected turn when the team discovers that Atlantis has transformed into a barren underwater post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Filled with stunning effects, this captivating story is loaded with laughs, gore, and messages of friendship and teamwork. Dive into Atlantis 3: Fire Under Water- it’s an adventure your family will enjoy taking over and over again.
For the 3rd time.”

It also reads "Congrats on 20 Years of Hellboy" & "Thank You Mike Mignola" in the Barcode area.

"this seems like something they would do with the old school cartoons. had me fooled for a minute!"- someone on tumblr

already up to 200+ notes! Thanks to everyone who has liked this, reblogged it, commented, etc. It means alot.

Trying not to be too bummed about being uninvited to the show. :\

*Secret Velociraptor album cover art- Final

http://vampirecloudformation.bandcamp.com/

Preview 2 songs on The Vampire Cloud Formation’s original motion picture soundtrack album, Secret Velociraptor.

About Secret Velociraptor: “Little is known about Czech director Gustav Adalwolf’s “lost” 1981 sci-fi film, Secret Velociraptor. Even less is known about Grave-Synth duo, Vampire Cloud Formation, who composed the film’s soundtrack. Falešný Int’l Pictures, issued a press release stating that they will be re-issuing the 33 year old album, along with a rare, unpublished movie tie-in comic and is slated for a July 2015 release.”

Bonus: Here’s a Secret V Facebook banner, in case you’d like to put it up on your page and help us promote Secret Velociraptor!

foxyjacob asked: Will epilogue be available to buy soon? it looks amazing!

Thanks Foxyjacob!

My Co-Creator, Daniel Levitch, and I are planning for a limited print-run release of Epilogue just in time for this year’s 2014 San Diego Comic-Con!

Keep an eye out on Tumblrtoons for more info as it comes in. You’ll hear (and see) it here first!

Thanks so much for the interest! It’s completely appreciated, and that’s one of the things that keep me going.

Stay tuned,

Jeaux Janovsky

[file under]—- Vampire Cloud Formation/Grave-Synth/GIF Test/Photoshoot

My friend Ryan and I had a photoshoot for our band, Vampire Cloud Formation, yesterday. here’s an outtake pic.

We’re getting our music page ready (premiering soon on Bandcamp) and thought it’d be nice to have an “official” VCF pic for our 2 song preview release.

We’re calling our genre: Grave-Synth because we sound kinda like if John Carpenter had joined the Cure.

thinking I’ll join hourly comic day tomorrow and use it to wrap up the remaining pages of Epilogue, Los Animales CH.2, and the rest of Character Cat™!

Along with all the other project pies I’ve got my fingers (and toes) in at the moment, I’ve slowly been working on a “shitty” comic side project w/ a new character of mine, aptly named, Character Cat™.
I’m currently 92 pages deep, and have got about 10 more pages left to make it a full fledged 102!
The storyline, if you can call it that, is fairly surreal and doesn’t follow your average comic narrative styles. It tends to get a bit metaphysical here and there, and Character Cat™ is totally self aware that he is, well, a Character… Cat.
In this sample page, he’s discovering that he is pretty much… uhm, shit.
Hoping to debut him at SDCC this year too! So, yay?
