On my Availability for ComicsI've come to check my DA notes and it's full of people pitching me comic ideas, asking what my page rates are, or when I am available to possibly work with them. Which... well, first of all, I am very honored! Thank you for your interest in me. Second of all, I'm sorry for my general lack of response. I don't communicate through DA (I use this account as a portfolio account, and rarely anything more!), nor do I check my messages as often as I could (I am very busy, as you might have guessed).On my Availability for Comics3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Want to work on a game with me?Edit: Do not link me to character designs/comic pages/etc! I AM NOT LOOKING FOR THAT! If you don't have background designs, then don't apply! Sending unrelated artwork is unprofessional and a waste of my time.Want to work on a game with me?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey folks, as I’ve mentioned a couple times, I’m working on a game project! As of right now, I’m handling all of the artwork myself, and it’s a pretty daunting task. So, I’m looking to outsource some of the work.
Naturally I don’t expect good work for free. This would be a paid gig!
If you would like to be involved but are short on time (I can relate) we could possibly work something out where you just sketch the backgrounds and someone else inks/colors them. It’s the design aspect I need assistance with.
If you’re interested, please send me an email with some samples of your artwork @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please spread the word! I need applications ASAP. You can help b

I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'

EA is wrong, TMNT still on, Duck Tales HD REMAKESimCity could've worked offlineEA is wrong, TMNT still on, Duck Tales HD REMAKE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
EA refuses to waver from their stance that the always-online DRM for SimCity that's caused so many problems is absolutely necessary to the functioning of the game. However, a modder by the name of UKAzzer has proved that EA is basically full of shit. UKAzzer discovered that the code which checks for a connection every 20 minutes could be changed to 0, resulting in no checks at all. The game still plays and functions perfectly offline, with only minor hiccups.
You can view his video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?featurelayer_embedded&v=Bmce9oIxJag
On a side note, EA's CEO John Riccitiello has resigned. I wonder if the SimCity debacle is in any way related...?

Selling my soul to DisneyI know I asked about which pics you guys would look forward to seeing the most in my last poll, but just a fair warning: I'm going to be doing quite a bit of Disney works mixed in with that. The reason why? I'm trying to land a job as a concept artist with Disney.Selling my soul to Disney2 years ago in Personal More Like This
No, I'm not kidding. I heard from my barber that one of her customer's daughters actually got a job at Disney by sending in several of her drawings, with a full paid scholarship to Florida U. No, this isn't one of those "my friend's friend's friend said" stories. She knows the girl, and she was the one who designed all the characters in Monsters Inc. Yeah.
It's not just going to be fanarts though. The core of the project is going to be a concept I've been thinking of for awhile: an Indian/Hindi version of Princess and the Pea. I've already got a few sketches done, and I hope to get it sent in time to hopefully land a scholarship in 2014. Who knows, maybe I'll upload some of the pics in the future.

Please this article to spread the word
WHY IS THIS CONTEST BEING HELD?
This contest is being held to raise awareness of The Undershaw Preservation Trust (UPT). They are vigourously working toward saving Undershaw (the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the writer of the Sherlock Holmes stories) from development and preserving it as Conan Doyle's home for future generations of Doyleans, Holmesians/Sherlockians, and literary fans of all kinds. Go to "A Brief History of Undershaw" on their website to find out what has happened to ACD's former home.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We are creating a montage of Sherlock Holmes fans showing their support for the UPT's cause. When the project closes (May 6th) the montage will then be sold as a print (not on DeviantART) and ALL profits will go to the future of Undershaw

I'm doing Cover # 3 for the official Adventure Time comics! Words can't describe how excited and flattered I am to have this opportunity! When I was first offered the job, I had to take a break from my desk to DANCE. Working on official comics for one of my favorite cartoons has always been a dream of mine. I'm thrilled to be working alongside with webcomic royalty like Ryan North and Emily Carrol, and the other amazingly talented creators on board. <3
Here's a little teaser! I'm told the final colors for this cover may be tweaked slightly in the final. Shannon Watters (editor of Boom! comics) requested a more girl-centric cover, so as you can guess I really had a field day with it.
I may be doing more work for the comics in the future, but I'm not sure I can comment on that just yet. Stay tuned, an

1. Some deviants were concerned about the frequency of tweets. After following multiple accounts, some felt that their Twitter timeline contained too many tweets from the Twitter Network. So based on your feedback, the accounts will now be tweeting slightly less frequently. All eight accounts are designed to tweet evenly throughout the day to reduce the amount of noise in your Twitter stream. I recommend choosing your favorite accounts to follow if you're still concerned with frequency.

Firstly, thanks for all the birthday well-wishing. Veritable.. mountains of well-wishing. Though I'd be just as content postponing my birthday until next year. And then maybe the year after that, and after that..
A year older and a year wiser. Well, the latter is debatable. But definitely a year older! This year has been a wild, satisfying, disappointing, exciting one. It marks my first total year as a freelancer, which has been simultaneously one of the most liberating and terrifying career leaps I've ever made. Thankfully, the studio I've ended up working with for the entire year has been a very welcoming one. The workload can be immense, but outside of being paid, there are few rewards greater than seeing your work animated in a game after toiling on it for hours. Getting to visit Barcelona was another fantastic perk.
I really can't complain at all about work, this year. I've worked with the guys from Wayforward, Vigil, did a bit of here-and-there for my old stu
