Jacob Mott

Jacob Mott!!!
I'm a big fan of a lot of artist. Any artist that inspires me to push my work further or just leaves me in awe of what they've done with their talent gets complete and humbled respect from me. So with that said, let me just say I am ecstatic about presenting this month's Q&A with Jacob.
Jacob delivers a cartoony style packed with detail in it's simplest form. You've seen his work in many places, but some recent works include Class Comic's, Naked Justice: Beginnings and his own new web comic, The Adventures of Lawsuit & T-Boy.

JACOB MOTT: An Insight

What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
"Straight Porn! LOL"

What are you doing when you're not drawing?"I try to keep my evenings free to spend with my husband. We either sit and watch a movie or TV, play on PS3/Wii, or we'll be out socializing. I'm pretty much wiped out at the end of the day, which probably sounds weird as all I do is sit on my butt drawing, but it does take it out of you!"

What trait do you like most about yourself?
"My work ethic and stubborn determination to succeed. You never get anywhere in life if you aren't willing to fight for what you want, put in the hours to accomplish your goals, and be prepared to pay some serious dues."

What characteristic do you like least in others?"Self-Pity. I loathe it."

Which living person do you most admire?
"I don't really admire any one person as such (I have an arrogant streak a mile wide that prevents that!) I do, however, have huge respect and admiration for anyone who's overcome the odds to stand up and be counted in life. Whether that's because of disability, race, gender, sexual orientation, whatever."

What single super power would you like to have?
"Magneto's control of magnetism, easily. It's one power, but gives you so many options. Plus Magneto's just one of the very best comic characters ever, and a great metaphor for an angry gay rights activist."

What would you use it for?
"Disarming the entire world"

Art & Comics

Who were/are some of the biggest influences on your artistic style?
"I've grabbed inspiration from hundreds of sources, from Golden Age to Modern-day comic creators, to Disney and Dreamworks, to blockbuster movies, to something I'll see in real life. An artist should never stop being influenced by everything around him, in my opinion."

Is there anything you don't like to draw?
"I'm not a huge fan of drawing backgrounds, like so many other artist. My interest, both in reading comics and in creating them, is the emotion of the character and the character themselves. I'm never impressed with say, a double page spread of a cityscape. It's very impressive technically, but doesn't evoke emotion in me."

Which Super Hero is most like you?
"Wolverine. People have told me time and again that I could pass for him (these are comic people, talking about comic Wolverine. At 5'6" I'm no Hugh Jackman!) I've got that whole grumpy/softer side fiercely."

Who is your favorite fictional villain?
"I'm a huge Villain fan, so it changes all the time. Right now, I'd probably have to say Randy Orton from WWE. I know he's a real guy, but his character counts as fictional right? He's just SO evil, I love it. Plus he's fuckin' hot!"

Which Super Villain are you most like?
"Again, I'd have to say Magento, I think. The whole "rights of my people" thing strikes a chord with me."

What project(s) are you currently working on?
"I'm working on Naked Justice: Beginnings for Class Comics, as well as my own adventures of Lawsuit and T-Boy."

I'm lovin' what I've seen of your comic, Lawsuit & T-Boy. Can you give us a teaser of what we can look forward to in their adventures?
"It's sort of a Dick Tracy and Green Hornet meets MenAtPlay! It's about a crime fighting (and romantic) partnership set in London. There's muscular, gun-toting thugs, hot gangsters, and plenty of hot sex, but with a slightly 60s serial story to it. (Hopefully!)"


Top or Bottom:
"I fell out of a top bunk once, so I'll have to say bottom."

What would be the circumstances for you to flip?
"If the guy on the top bunk was really heavy (fat or muscular) I'd want to be above him in case he came down in the night. That way, if he was hot, I could poke my head over the top bunk and check him out in his sleep too."

Fictional character you'd most like to fuck:
"Well, it's weird maybe, but The Incredible Hulk. He's SO hot."

Does your dick have a name?
"Well, no. I had a mate in school who called his dick "Dave." Never really saw the point, not when the word "cock" is so hot. I'd rather say, "Suck my cock" than "Suck Nigel for me!"

Biggest Turn On:
"Anyone who knows me or my art probably knows the answer to this one; Big, G-Shock style or other chunky watches. I have no explanation for it. It's just been that way since I was a kid."

Favorite Position"
"Quarterback. They're always so incredibly sexy."

How big is 'Too Big?'
"Oh, I'd give anything a go!"
