Blog Issues

Hey Everyone,

I apologize for my absence. I've been having blog problems with access and uploading.

I've given up on relying on web writers and found a website builder that seems easy enough for me learn. So hopefully, within the next few weeks you will be getting a post from me inviting everyone to my new blog and website. 

Happy Holidays, Everybody!

The countdown to Bent-Con continues with another JEZZ LOAD!
This week's interview is with a blogger I'm sure everybody is already aware of. I've been wrong to make those assumptions before, but I'm gonna go ahead and put it out there - If you don't know about his blog "Maybe It's Just Me..." - You Should!  Wonderman blogs about all things Geek, Gay, and Current Events - Relevant current events - with more attention on what actually matters and less on predictable divorces among annoying hot Armenian chicks.  
Following this blog, has connected me with many stories going on in the world I was unaware of and keeps me up to date on what's happening in the world of Comics. Wonderman has provided a resource I'm grateful for and has proven to be a huge hand in making this year's Bent-Con happen. Learn a lil about the blogger extraordinaire here...

In less than 3 weeks, some of the greatest gay artist, writers and geeks will be gathering to celebrate gayness in comics, films, and games.
I'm counting down with interviews with a few of the studs you'll be able to meet there, starting with one of the brilliant minds behind the starting of BENT-con, Dave Davenport!
From his gritty illustrations to dynamic tattoos and astonishing paintings, Dave's work shows off great skill and versatility. Read what he had to tell us about himself here...

Hey Everybody!!!

I know you guys are wonderin where I've gone and where are my regular monthly post.
I'm sorry for my absence from the blog, but know that its because of GREAT things!

Commissions and a couple of monthly Magazine opportunities have come my way in addition to working on my own comic book. Yes. I said it - my own comic. I tried to keep it hush hush for a while, but I'm "SO FREAKIN EXCITED!" I can't keep it on the low any more! I'm sure I just spurred questions - they will be answered.

More to come very soon. Stay tuned.

Sunday, June 12, 2011


I've mentioned before that I'm a big fan of exaggerated and cartoony art styles. So, you can see why I was an instant fan of the work from big boy artist, BeefyBlimps. Beefy's work swells with masculinity and pops with testosterone. The lust in his work seems to drip a humor that made me eager to know more about him and after interviewing him, I want to know even more!

Sunday, June 5, 2011


Happy June, Everybody!

This month's birthdays are:
Spanish artist, Javi Cuho, just turned the big 3-0 on June 2nd.
Tattoo master and Hard to Swallow's Dave Davenport will be 47 on the 15th
and artist extraordinaire, Belasco, celebrates another year on the 16th.

Ok. A lot is happening for me this year. Right now I'm juggling several art projects, a new schedule with my day job, and going to be traveling a bit over the next few months. So, I'm not gonna be able to get to the blog as often as before for a little while.
I will, however, still be delivering the monthly calendar stud, the monthly interview, and the rest of my zodiac series. I have a stack of uncolored fan pieces I will get to as I have the time.

This month you can look forward to a very entertaining interview with big man cartoonist, BeefyBlimps and the next in the zodiac, Cancer!
I feel confident you will love both!

Till then, love yourselves a lot.

Never too late to show some love

I know May has come and gone, but I didn't get around to coloring the fan pieces I prepped for Asian/Pacific Islander History Month till this week. And I can't acknowledge the month and not follow through with what I promised. So, my apologies for being late, but here's some love for those from the far east.

First up is Samurai Jack.
I can't say I really followed this cartoon, but every time I caught it, I was consistently impressed with how well they used the vector graphic style. I was a huge japanimation nut growing up. Samurai Jack felt like one of the most original looking hybrids to come out of the fusion between Japanese and American cartoons.
I also loved the culture clashes often featured in the cartoon. Two of my favorite episodes involved Jack meeting up with an entertaining Scottsman and another with a visually clever African tribe.

Similar to Samurai Jack, I haven't really followed the story lines for Psylocke much. They sort of bore me, BUT every since I've been reading X-Men, the various pieces of artwork featuring Psylocke have been unbelievably inspirational!
From pages illustrated by Jim Lee and Joe Madueria to paintings by Boris Vallejo and some amazing fan art. I will never forget a Marvel trading card from the 90's featuring a painting of Psylocke wielding two swords. If anyone of you know the name of that artist I'd love to know.
So, here's my tribute to one of the most artistically inspiring Asian characters out there.

Last up is the one and only Ryu. The web is flooded with beautiful art featuring the Japanese stud. It was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at him. 
This is the first of what I'm sure will be many pieces of my take on the original street fighter.

The Gay Comic Geek

I don't think this month's feature needs any introduction. He's the one and only - Gay Comic Geek. Every artist has his muse and my muse is Paul. I don't know why. I see him and I have to draw him.
So without further delay...

Monday, May 9, 2011


Hey Everybody!

Thanks for your patience while I was away.
Let me catch you up on some notable birthdays:

Studly, Eric Arvin, turned 36 on May 6th
Artists, Erek Syon, celebrates another year tomorrow on the 10th
Spanish artist, Ismael Álvarez has a birthday on the 12th
and yours truly will be 32 on the 23rd

I'm just gonna pick up where I left off last month...
The interview with The Gay Comic Geek will go live next week.
I'll be posting the promised fan art from last month along with some more fan pieces inspired by Asian History Month and the next piece of my zodiac series, Gemini.

Everything has it's time, and a little set back has only made May a mega month for post. So, stay tuned!

Happy May, Folks.
Loads of love,

The Bull

April & The 2nd Half of My interview with Dr. Dick

Hey HEY HAY, Everybody!

Before I dive into the overview of this month, here are some birthdays you guys should make note of so you can show these studs some love:

Fantastic and French artist, Fabrissou turns 32 on April 14th
Black Gay Boy Fantasy's Victor Hodge turns 43 on April 18th
and writer Zan Christensen will be 38 on April 23rd.

I've got A LOT for you guys this month - starting with an interview with the gay comic geek. Yup. The Gay Comic Geek.
If you think you already know everything about him, you're in for some treats.

My zodiac series continues with Taurus and I've prepared two weeks of fan art for you and maybe a surprise or two.
Yes, Ladyboys and Gents, I've got a few BIG JezzLoads for ya this month!

Kick it all off with the second half of my podcast interview with Dr. Dick as part of his series: The Erotic Mind. This was my first interview as an erotic artist, and I couldn't have had more fun. Dr. Dick is as charismatic as they come and his Erotic Mind series has become my new favorite resource for learning about erotic artist.
Thank you all for the beautiful emails and comments. I can't express how grateful I am to have made the fans and friends I have through my art. I said it before and I'll say it again, I LOVE YOU GUYS!

Happy April, Everybody

Jezza does Dr. Dick

Hey Everybody!

I hope you're all enjoying the springing of Spring - and Autumn for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere :) I know I am!

If my profile on Spunktoons wasn't enough of an insight into yours truly, get ready for more!
Sexpert and therapist, Dr. Dick recently interviewed me as part of his on going series of podcast interviews with erotic artist, photographers, and writers called The Erotic Mind.
The series is definitely a must follow. He's done interviews with a pantheon of erotic creatives that I found extremely insightful and inspiring. I'm sincerely honored to be included among them. Download the first part of my interview with him here.

Happy Monday, Folks.
Make it a great week!
I really do love youz all!

Justin Hall

You've most likely met or seen Justin Hall at a Prism Comics booth at any of the Californian comic conventions or you might know his work from Hard to Swallow and Glamazonia.
If you still don't recognize him, maybe you know him by a different name...

I'm on SpunkToons!

Check out my profile to learn a lil' about me and check out the site - there's some awesome art and you'll learn more about other artist too.

Jon Macy

This week's feature is as endowed artistically as he his with the gift of writing. 
I'm gonna admit, I wasn't familiar with Jon Macy prior to researching Northwest Press' creative line up.   I'm a little embarrassed to share that, because the man has been in this game for good minute. His folio includes everything from comics with Eros/Fantagraphics to the anthologies of Meatmen and Gay Comix to say the least. On top of decades of experience, he offers a unique style with fantastic stories from the heart. 
It is an honor to share a Jon Macy JezzLoad with you. :D

Zan Christensen

If you've read Class Comic's "Mark of Aceus," then you're familiar with the writings of Zan Christensen. Zan has ascended from being a comic writer to the ranks of comics publishing. When I learned of his new company, Northwest Press, I hopped on the opportunity to get to know Zan a little more and to find out more about his new comic company.
This interview revealed Zan has worn several hats (and hair colors) in the media industry...

Tuesday, March 1, 2011


hey Hey HEY Everybody!

It's March 2011! Spring is around the corner (for those of us in the northern hemisphere).
It looks like spring is a time for makin' babies and not having em, 'cause I only got one birthday call this month - cartoonist and phenomenal caricaturist, Brett Willis, celebrates a birthday on the 21st. Check him out on his site or on Facebook and show the stud some love.

I've got a treat for you this month. I'll be sharing not one, not two, but three Q&As with you this month. Northwest Press is a new LGBT publishing company and I've got interviews with the founder, Zan Christensen, and 2 of their creators Jon Macy and Justin Hall.
The more companies out there that support or cater to the gay community, the more opportunities there are for gay artist and writers to share their work. So, I'm happy to give a shout out for another gay publishing house and even happier to share their goods with you all.

I've got my hands full with a couple of commissions and personal projects so I won't have much art to share this month, but I will of course be posting the next in my zodiac series and I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a quicky here or there ;)

Until next week, folks. Enjoy my "Lucky Charms Lad"

Foxxy Love

OK. Is it ironic that after my post about tokens and positive black toons, that Foxxy Love made my list of fan arts for Black History month?

I love Foxxy. I love that she is an exaggeration of stereotypes and encourages a sense of humor about sensitive issues. While living up to any stereotype the writers of Drawn Together could think of, she played an essential role in pointing out the stupidity in actually believing such crazy generalizations.

Rest in Peace, Dwayne McDuffie

The comic world lost one its greats today. I only knew Dwayne McDuffie primarily by his work. I sadly was unaware of many of his contributions until today. Below I am sharing an informative and inspirational post from CBR in hope that you all will appreciate knowing more about him as I do.

"A native of Detroit, McDuffie officially joined the comics industry as part of Marvel Comics editorial in the late '80s. While working on special projects for the publisher, he quickly made his name as a writer creating series such as "Damage Control" and helping to redefine the Deathlok character to fan and critical acclaim. He soon left the staff to become a full time freelance writer, becoming a voice in the industry for diversity, particularly fighting against stereotypical portrayals of people of color on the comic book page.
In 1993, McDuffie co-founded Milestone Media along with creators Denys Cowan, Michael Davis and Derek T. Dingle. The company's mission statement involved expanding the role of minorities in comics both on the page and off, and they launched (through DC Comics) a line of superheroes that included "Static," "Icon" and Xombi" – all of which McDuffie had a hand in creating.
Over the years, the writer contributed to scores of notable comic book launches and series, always with a keen eye on character, regardless of race. In 2000, his character, Static, made the leap totelevision in the Saturday morning cartoon "Static Shock." In 2003, an episode of the show dealing with gun violence earned the writer the Humanitas Prize.
In recent years, McDuffie pursued dual tracks in animation and comics writing. He served as story editor for the popular "Justice League Unlimited" animated series and wrote a number of DC's recent direct-to-DVD animated films. McDuffie had notable runs on comic series "Fantastic Four" and "Justice League of America," often incorporating Black characters into the core of the fabled franchises.
McDuffie's latest work was the script for the "All Star Superman" animated adaptation, which went on sale today in stores across America. CBR ran a lengthy interview with McDuffie about that project last week and caught up with him, looking in good health and acting jovial, last week at the Paley Center's Los Angeles premier for the film. McDuffie's last known public statement was a post to his Facebook page Sunday at 12:17 PM Pacific. He was scheduled to sign at Golden Apple Comics tomorrow evening as part of Reggie Hudlin's Reggie's World launch party.
The writer is survived by his wife, though at this point no further details are available on what exactly happened to McDuffie. The staff of Comic Book Resources offers our deepest condolences to his family and friends."

Rest in Peace, Dwayne McDuffie. I am very grateful for what you did with your gifts in the time that you spent in this world. You will be greatly missed.

Super Cool

It's not easy being a token. The temptation to be stereotypical or a cliche character is great, but when you're "cool" enough, you can be you and fit in as if you're no different from the rest and still manage to stand out as a superstar.
Frozone is such a stud. As the only black character in one of my favorite animated movies, he wasn't the "Black Guy" - he was the "Cool Guy." That alone is enough to be recognized in my line up of fan artworks for Black History Month.

Enjoy your weekend, Folks

Happy Birthday Justin Hall!!!

Hey everybody,
Today is Hard to Swallow & Glamazonia's Justin Hall's 40th birthday! Be sure to show him some love on either his website, facebook, or just leave a comment for him here.

Mistress of the Elements

I've mentioned before that Storm is one of my favorite X-Men. So, when I decided to do some pieces for weekly fan art for Black History Month, she was second on my list (first is yet to come).
Storm was the first black female to play a major role in either of the two big comic companies, Marvel or DC, and is noted to be the most successful and recognizable black superhero today.

Eric Arvin

I couldn't be more happy to share this month's feature with you. He's the author of books and comics such as Subsurdity, Suburbilicious, and Kid Christmas Rides Again. The talented Eric Arvin isn't just a pretty face and pair of biceps, he's fresh, clever, and funny. After reading this interview you'll be in love with him and understand the rules of establishing who's on top and bottom.

Friday, February 4, 2011


 In recognition of Black History Month, I worked up some fan art of some of my favorite black characters from the world of comics and toons.
The first is the one and only Chef from SouthPark. He was one of TV's sexiest and most entertaining black toons in history. Chef is an inspirational example of how being a minority in a small minded environment can be overcome with a positive attitude, a spirit of perseverance, and a whole lotta sexiness.

I hope you enjoy this piece. As always, your feedback is very welcome.

Have an extra chocolaty weekend, everybody

Hey Everybody!!!

How is everyone's 2011 so far?
Mine gets better by the day and I couldn't be more excited about what I've got to share with you this month, but first this month's Birthday Role Call:

artist extraordinaire, Joe Phillips, celebrates another year on the 13th
Glamazonia's Justin Hall is turning the big 4 - 0 on the 14th
and fanboy blogger, Wonderman is turning 37 on the 16th
Show these studs some love, folks!

OK. So this year I broadened the spectrum of my interviews to include writers and other bloggers. This month's Q&A will have you in tears laughing and drooling for more. This feature is so entertaining that it can only be the one and only...

...Eric Arvin!!! (Imagine me saying it in an Oprah voice :D)
That's right folks! The beefcake writer of books like Slight Details & Random Events and Kid Christmas Rides Again is giving us some insight into the world of writing, some exciting news about future projects, and of course some very sexy bits about his goods!
You'll love this interview!

I'm also continuing my zodiac series this month with Pisces and I've got weekly fan art in recognition of Black History Month.
Yes, boys and trannies, I've packed this month full of goodies and I'm squirting to share it all with yaz!

until next time -
Have a grrreat week, folks!
Happy February!!!

FMX is the Fallen Messiah X. What does that mean? I have no clue.
And it's not even one of the questions I thought to ask. I like not knowing - But I DO like knowing what super powers he would sport, who he works for, and what pornos he's been in.
He's very talented and I personally think he is adorable (seriously folks - FMX looks like a real live anime character, no lie). His sarcastic sense of humor makes me wish I could have held this interview in person.
One day, I tell ya, one day. :)

Saturday, January 1, 2011


Happy New Year, Everybody!
Happy New Year! Happy New Year! Happy New Year!!!

FMX is adorable, funny, and packin major talent. You will enjoy getting to know him as much as I did.

I've also got some new monthly originals to share as well as fan and slash art!
It's gonna be a great year, folks! It's gonna be a great year.
"I can feel it in me waters" :)

Happy New Year, Everybody.
