Hello, folks! JFM Here to write out the last journal entry of the year. And lemme tell ya, this year was a mixed bag. Full of nuts and bolts. When it started with Logan Paul being a dick in Japan and a mass shooting, I had a funny feeling about this year. And yes, terrible things do happen every year, so I can't really blame 2018 for bringing such depressing news, you know? So I'll just focus on the highlights of my life that happened this year:

  • Finished my very first animatic of the "Jeff & Taylor" intro. (If it was an Anime)
  • Enjoyed The Evil Within 2
  • Uploaded about 50 J&T Quickies this year alone. (A new record)
  • Enjoyed Far Cry 5
  • Paid the full version of Xplit, so my live streams got a lot better!
  • Got brand new glasses.
  • Sold at Arctic Comic Con and had great success!
  • Sold at Ookiisoracon and had a great time!
  • Made new friends like Rozen-Guarde, AkemiHoshi, and Talesaria!
  • Finished Jeff & Taylor Episode 14: Chaotic Crew!
  • Sold at SenshiCon and had a good time.
  • Self published my second Quickie Book.
  • Sold at my very last PopCon.
  • Enjoyed SoulCalibur VI
  • Finished J&T Episode 15's script.
And there you have it! Those are the best things to happen to me this year. What's yours? So yeah, here's hoping 2019 will be amazing! I have a feeling it will be. :) Now just so you know, I'll be closing commissions for January so I can focus on Episode 15. I'll be finishing one from Shaun, but that's it. They'll re-open in February. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Hello folks! December is here and you know what THAT means...CHRISTMAS! HAHAHAHA! Okay, so I'm working on some Christmas-themed drawings this month not to mention I opened up commissions again. I will close them in January though. So yeah, not much else to say other than I'll try to be more active this time around with new art. I also plan to start working on J&T quickies 201-220 this month too. So I'll be keeping myself busy--I haven't even gone Christmas shopping yet. Yikes! I just reminded myself. Crap. Ah, well. Things always work out in the end. So I won't sweat it too much. So yeah, Here's hoping that your holidays will be great!

Yes, I will be working on super fun and cool illustrations on my Youtube live stream on November 24th to promote my Patreon! It’s time to get serious! If I want to start working for myself next year, then I gotta have a strong start with my Patreon backers. I’d like to gain 20 backers that day. That is the goal! I’m excited for this stream and I hope to see you there! :D

If you’d like to be a patron now, you’re more than welcome to be!

I did it! Jeff & Taylor Quickies #2 is complete and copies are on my way! Hopefully I'll get them before November 9th, because that's when PopCon starts. It's a local video game and pop culture convention held every year at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and this year will be my last. PopCon 2014 was the very first time I've ever sold my stuff at a table at it was a blast, but since I'll be moving next year, going back to Fairbanks for that con will be pointless.

Right now, I'm focused on finishing up commissions and preparing for PopCon. I might close commissions on November though. Cuz I got a little video project to work on. Until then, I wish you guys a Happy Halloween. Stay safe, and don't eat too much candy. They might contain razor blades. Have you seen the end of "Night of the Demons"? Ah well.

Howdy folks!

Thursday night, I'll be on a flight to Anchorage, Alaska for SenshiCon! And I'll be one of the vendors in the artists alley there. I'm finishing up an illustration so I can sell as a print there. And of course, I'll bring extra commission paper so I can draw for the people! I'm ashamed I can't get more done though. I guess I was too distracted by a lot of things like work, online commissions, and my comics. No matter though, I'm sure I'll have a great time and sell a lot! I got Crazy Cat prints--those sell well! :D  

I'm also working on J&T quickies. New ones will be on the website every Tuesday and Saturday starting October 2nd! And as soon as I'm done with those and get the bonus comic done, then I'll publish Quickies #2! And boy, I can't wait! The book will have an airplane theme. Jeff & Taylor are pilots while the girls (and David) are flight attendants! The theme is largely inspired by the Foo Fighter's music video to 'Learn To Fly'.  I'll add in some extra pictures in the book too. It'll all make sense once you read the book. Hehe! I'll attach a WIP of one of the drawings for the book!

It's time for a character Q&A, so JFM Studios mascot, Amanda is ready to answer your questions! 
Hey guys! I'll be traveling to Helena, Montana tomorrow morning for a new con called Ookiisoracon. Ooo. It's basically Nagucon, but with a different name. I gotta get to bed early cuz my plane leaves at 6:00 AM. Wish me luck guys! I'm also hoping for a smooth and safe trip.
Hi guys.

Yes, I just referenced The Gorillaz. Listening to that song now. Just writing this journal cuz it's time for an update. Sorry I'm not replying to everyone's messages and comments. Just wanna let you know that you're all appreciated! And for supporting my art. New Loud House fan art is on the way! I'm excited to work on them. And I'm coloring pages for Jeff & Taylor Episode 14! 

But...I am feeling a bit sad/worried. It's due to to the current political climate. Why is it that the worst people seem to win elections or do well in the polls. Case in point, this Neo Nazi running for US senate in California. He might qualify to be in the general. I'm disheartened...I'm also a bit nervous about Ookiisoracon in Helena on the 22nd-24th. I can't explain it. But I dunno, I feel like this month will be a bad one. :( 

I haven't fully lost faith yet. Tomorrow's a new day and I'm gonna try to take it over. Also, this Tuesday will mark six years of me working at the body shop. My gosh, talk about wasting my life away. Just one more year, and then I'll move out of state and hopefully get a new job that has to do with art. Anyway guys, wish me luck this month. Looks like I'll need it.

You're friendly neighborhood drama queen,
JFM
Hello guys!

It's been a while since I've posted a journal entry. Just wanted you let you know that I'll be very busy with comic work in April. I have Episode 14 of Jeff & Taylor to finish, and I gotta make more Quickies. So I WON'T be accepting commissions in April. BUT I will still be drawing new Loud House art, so yay. I also got Far Cry 5 the other day. That game's been temping me. lol But I'm now stuck on a frustrating part, so I'll take a break from it. 

So yeah, sorry for being inactive. I'll try to submit more stuff in the near future. Promise!

If Jeff & Taylor was an anime, this would totally be the intro! Took me a few weeks to make this. This opening animatic is largely inspired by Fairy Tail's 19th opening. Hope you guys are genuinely surprised and impressed. I'm no animator, but I can totally do animatics. They're fun!  Thank you guys for being J&T fans and followers of JFM Studios. There will be many more fun videos to come!

Hi guys. Just wanted to write this quickly letting you guys know that I'm real focused on my comic series this year. Updating the website twice a week, and consistently working on the main issues has taken time out of my fan art and stand-alone illustrations. Which means, less uploads on DA. 

Hope you guys are not upset due to my inactivity. I'm not even responding to messages often anymore. But you got to understand that my comic "Jeff & Taylor" is very important to me. Even if I have a small audience, I must keep working on this project. I'm on episode 14 out of 60. It will take years to finish the series, but I'm sure I'll find a way. Thank you guys for following and supporting me.

This weekend I will work on something big. Hope my followers will like it...
Wassup, y'all? 2017 has been quite a year. I dunno if it's better or worse than 2016. I guess it has a mixed reaction. With politics, nasty weather, horrific mass shootings, and weirdos making the news...it can seem hopeless. But I believe there is hope. To me, hope was the theme for 2017. A hope for real positive change. The changes will get even bigger in 2018. I usually point out the highlights of my life this year in these journals so here it goes:
  • Started "Inside JFM Studios" (Youtube Series)
  • Quit Facebook for nine months
  • Started live streaming on Youtube
  • Finished Jeff & Taylor Episode 13
  • Sold at Nagu-Con in Helena, Montana
  • Recorded my Let's Play of Resident Evil 4
  • Enjoyed a great year of boxing (Terence Crawford unifying all four belts was the biggest thing for me)
  • Got into Fairy Tail (now one of my favorite animes)
  • Recorded my first Halloween Special in three years.
  • Sold at SenshiCon in Anchorage, Alaska
  • Sold at PopCon in Fairbanks, Alaska
  • Got copies of J&T Volume 1 in the local Comic Shop
So yeah, those are the highlights! Also, I really enjoyed playing Watchdogs 2 and Resident Evil 7. So hang on folks, 2018 will be a busy year for me. Might have to close commissions in January just so I can work on J&T episode 14. Hope you guys have a very happy new year! May your wishes come true.
RozenGuarde by JFMstudios

These are digital illustrations I commissioned Rozen-Guarde to paint Cassidy and Jane for me. She's a very underrated artist. Please follow her work. Not to mention, she shows a versatile range of art. Crafting, painting, architecture, drafting, manga, and portraits.  

Here it is. That introvert video I've been asking you guys about a few weeks ago.
And by that, I mean I'm gonna put all my time and energy in J&T related stuff. Whether it be Episode 14, the Quickies, or stand alone images for the 2018 calendar. Also, I gotta revamp some images for the website. I'll be updating everything on January 2nd. So I kindly request no commissions until December 1st. 

Jeff & Taylor will have its 13th anniversary November 16th! So I gotta make a special video for the occasion. Sorry for not being that active, guys. A lot happening.

Hey, my main dudes and dudettes, here's a lengthy video about my time in SenshiCon in Anchorage, Alaska! It's a really great anime convention and I plan to return next year!
