I made Conan O'Brien's & Team Coco's online gallery!!!

Holy Crap guys! Go like my Conan fan art!!!!

I randomly submitted some Conan O’Brien fan art a few days ago and they chose it for their online gallery! You should go “LIKE” it, if you got a couple of seconds to kill!

Thanks! I’d totally appreciate it!

tiredly excited!

<3 :)



Updated Update: unreal. If you'll excuse me, I'll kindly go and pick up my jaw from the floor now. Many thanks Team Coco!!!

Updated Thrice Update: Thank you friends, strangers, and fellow Conan/Team Coco enthusiasts! W/out you all working together, it wouldn't have gotten my Conan Tribute into the freaking TOP 50 at #11!!!! Friends, I implore you to help me get into the coveted 10 spot. Please pass this along to your pals, your parents, your grandma, your cousins, your pets, the weird neighbor across the street and help me get more "Like" votes! Together we can sweep this and make it a Jeaux Janovsky 10 spot victory!!! (end of Braveheart rant.) In all seriousness, WOW! Thank you so much everyone! I can't even describe to you how proud I feel right now.
Quadruple Update: My Conan piece got picked up by the ultra-cool LA WEEKLY Tumblr (thanks Liz), Mtv Geek, & Laughing Squid! :D Thanks!!!

Got Milk?

Another rejected idea sent to the "Got Milk" Campaign folks.

Nah, I'm just kidding.

Heads up this might be a little NSFW.

I'm clearly cut from the same cloth as my fellow underground cartoonists from the 60s/70s/80s/90s.

Those guys are my heroes.

Thanks for paving the way, and making it ok to be a weirdo.

Wizzard of Boss Color explorations

Wizzard of Boss development art by Jeaux Janovsky

Here's another Wizzard of Boss concept goodie for those of you keeping score.

Venturing further into the idea of black light color schemes, I'm certainly digging it.

Below is artwork by my talented cartoonist pal, Niko Anesti. I really dug this Black light piece he did, and used it as inspiration for coloring up the above piece.

Do yourself a favor and check out his cartoons & tumblr.

Keep watching this spot as Wizzard of Boss develops!

Believe it.

More Wizzard of Boss Dayglo Concept Art

Wizzard of Boss concept art by Jeaux Janovsky, 2011

Here's more Wizzard of Boss concept art for you to set your eyeballs on while I'm figuring out bits, pieces, twigs of storyline.

I drew this on the train, and I dig the shaky line work it gave me.

I've also been really obsessing over black light colors and when the time comes might look into printing the book in black light day glo colors.

this here's the color scheme I borrowed. Love this piece, do not have any info on the artist, however. :\ lame.

UPDATE: my pal Joselyn dug up some info in the mysterious frog poster! it's by an artist named Richard David, and was done in 1964! AWESOME! Thnx Joselyn!

Anyone out there know of or can recommend a good printing place that'll do that?

hit me up, jeauxj at gmail dot com.

Original Cartoon Heroes

Chuck Jones art originally posted March 24th, 2008 for Channel Frederator.

I've recently been commissioned by Fred Seibert to create a series of postcard tribute art of Original Cartoon Heroes, based off a few Refrederator illustrations I did a few years ago while working w/ Fred on Channel Frederator in NY.

I've been having a blast creating the recent pieces and it's been rekindling my love affair w/ cartoons again.

This will be my "Love Letter" to Cartoons.

Thanks Fred!

Keep your eyeballs glued here, as I'll be posting other Original Cartoon Heroes images, sketches, and behind the art goodies.

Swine Time!

Recently, I had the pleasure of doing some freelance for my pal Daniel Levitch's film company, Well-Oiled Machine and their property: the Swine trilogy.

Daniel thought I'd be a good fit for creating the illustrations for the DVD covers to each trilogy installment, I think he was right!

Daniel & I both love the B/W work of Tim Bradstreet, and used his style as an inspirational springboard for the design sensibility of the cover illos.

My process was easily complicated.

  • Daniel gave me a few pics to use of his actors.
  • Once I found my choices, I brought the pics into photoshop and manipulated them into something that sort of resembled a B/W photocopy machine look.
  • I toyed around w/ laying out and arranging the pics and shared the mockups w/ Daniel.
  • Once Daniel okayed the mockups, I printed out the B/W characters on separate pages and prepared them for the hand drawn inking process.
  • I taped the images to my lightbox and went to work w/ my sharpies and ink pens.
  • I rescanned the inked characters and brought them back into photoshop and placed them in their proper areas, the same areas as when I layed them out for mockups.
  • I sent Daniel & his friend Koren the PSD files and they created the final DVD covers.

I haven't had a chance to check out the final look, but I'm sure they did an awesome job. Pretty excited because Daniel & the rest of Well-Oiled Machine will be debuting Swine at Comic-Con this year!

Åsa Wallander as Wallace

Kelley Gallagher as Cahill

Kellsy MacKilligan as Mercedes

Jackie Becker as Amelia

Youtube Time Machine / Video Time Machine: The Lonesome Traveler

Here's an unused App Illo I did for Video Time Machine (formerly or also known as (?) Youtube Time Machine/YTTM)!

I wanted to share it cause I really like how it came out (& the little orphan boy).

BTW, I am available for freelance of any artistic sort.

Illustration, Comics, Animation, character design, storyboards, comedy writing, etc.

If you are, or if you know of anyone, looking for any one of those things that need to be filled, send them, or yourself, my way. My info is over on the side-bar, under my name all up in my profile.

Thanks friends, and happy, safe travels! ;)
