My Bio
My name is Jonathan Ponikvar. I'm a published comic artist who graduated from SCAD with a Bachelor's in Sequential Art (comics and cartooning), with additional graduate-level training under my belt in the same field. I now work professionally as a Multimedia/Web Developer while producing/publishing comics and pinup illustrations. I've also been known to play some crazy piano on occasion. My wife Whitney is also one of the most talented artists I know, and together we are the creative team behind two comics that have been published online since 2005. Her character is also the focal point of an annual pinup cosplay series that I produce around Halloween each year.

The Peterverse is the name of the universe where both our comics take place. Peter & Company tells the story of a young cat named Peter and his special friend, a duck named Seth whom only Peter can see. Peter & Whitney is the sequel series to P&C, telling the story of how Peter and his soulmate Whitney find each other in college and start their lives together.

Peterverse Comics and Websites:
Peter & Company - "What if, to a child, what appeared to be an imaginary friend... were in fact, his guardian angel?" The story of Peter and his friend Seth, a supernatural duck who was assigned to help Peter survive his childhood intact. Currently available in printed volumes via Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and coming soon in animated form.

Peter & Whitney - The story of two childhood friends finding each other again in college, falling in love, getting married, and everything that happens in between.

The Peterverse Picarto - Watch our weekly streams on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, as Whitney and I both work together to get our comics and other projects done.

Actually, I've never charged for any of the character cameos in my comics! They've never been tied to the Patreon. The cameos at this point are tied to being a member of our Discord community (https://discord.gg/E6ugaRG), so whenever I'm doing a page that needs background characters, we'll hold a roulette for folks on the server and they can add their names to potentially win a spot on the page. There are rules with cooldowns and such to make sure more people have a chance to win, and I never make people pay for it. It's purely to let readers of the comic be a part of the universe. 😊

LOL Yep. Her boobs have that effect on people. It's even more powerful IRL.

Thank you! I hadn't planned on selling this as a standalone print, but I am planning on doing a full print collection book of the series once I get enough pieces finished for it!

Aw, thank you so much! The comics will hopefully be resuming soon, since we're still trying to get back into the groove of drawing regularly again after Whitney lost her mom to cancer last year. This "Whitney Bra" series is one I had been wanting to do for a long time now, and since Whitney loves it so much whenever I draw sexy pinups of her, I finally jumped in and started drawing them to try and help her feel happy again. That's why so many of these pieces have been getting cranked out over the past few months.


Whitney's the colorist for all of our comics, so I didn't want to push for us to resume regular updates until she told me she was ready. I think we're getting closer to that point now, so hopefully we'll have more pages for you soon! 😊
