Jeaux's In Demand w/ Time Warner Cable's On Demand!

My "Pop Culture Cool" Interview at Calarts w/ Time Warner Cable's producer Kyle Maki premieres today & is now up on Time Warner Cable's Video OnDemand service!

(I really do love reading Steinbeck.)

You will be astonished at Kyle's Kubrick like shots, the BIG Stop motion scene, my rugged good looks, and intellectual views and insights on cartooning and life. Kyle really asked some hard-hitting questions, and I HARDly answered back. Wait, that sounds wrong. I answered him back HARDer!
This is for Time Warner Cable subscribers only, so if you don't have TWC I'd suggest going to a friend's house that does have it, or pay your cable guy a couple extra bucks if you know what I mean. J/k.

So, here's how you can view:
Dear Time Warner Cable Subscribers,
Go to Channel 1 or Select OnDemand on your remote.
Select "Local"
Select "SoCal's Best"
Select "Pop Culture Cool"
Select "Art- Jeaux Janovsky"

Simple as that!

I'm not sure if this will be appearing online in a few weeks or not, if at all so you might have to cozy up with a friend who does have TWC so you can viddy it. So let's get it a Futz TON, MEGA LOTTA views!
Wanna see some behind the scenes pix from the shoot? Feel free to check them out here:!
I'd like to give a thanks and a shout-out to producer Kyle for setting this awesomeness up, Time Warner cable, Their On Demand peeps, and all the So Cal 101 tv folks for making this happen! Special thanks goes out to all of you too for watching it! And when you do watch it, drop me a line letting me know what you thought!!!

Freelance peek-a-boo!

Freelance has been pretty kind to me in 2012 (thus far), let's keep it that way! So let's take a look back at a couple of freelance projects I did in 2011!

Carmel Crawford's Mike Rochip!
Carmel Crawford is a writer from Ireland with an interesting property & character named, Mike Rochip! If you were to throw Tin-Tin, Iron Man, and Tron into a blender, then your smoothie of a cartoon would be Mike Rochip. It's got the right blend of action & comedy and I'm proud to have lent my services to it.
I worked with Richard Lewis & writer Stephen Sustarsic closely and was responsible for designing all the main characters as well as producing and laying out the Mike Rochip pitch packet. (*Interested producers & animation development execs: I can put you in touch w/ Carmel and can send you the Mike Rochip pitch packet if you'd like to see it! email me at jeauxj(at)gmail(dot)com!)
Mike Rochip started his life online as roving reporter, Mike Rofone! He looked very different in those days compared to my reboot designs! He was an actual Microphone!

From L to R: Amy, Indie, Mike Rofone, Harry Broadhead, Jason Ratz, Viper Virus!

From online, Carmel was then able to make the jump to publishing Mike Rofone as a children's book!


My new Mike Rochip Reboot lineup!

Here's the Mike Rochip storyboard animatic for "The Big Dumb Down" Pilot episode!

You can view other Mike Rochip fun stuff, HERE.
A couple words from Carmel:
"Well, what can I say? You are a very talented artist who worked in very well with the conceptualization of my ideas. I would recommend you to anyone who wants something different, 'off the wall' and fun."
I had such a blast working on this w/ Carmel, Richard, and Stephen! Here's hoping we'll see this on TV in the near future!
You can find Carmel on Twitter, and also Carmel Crawford was the creator of the Mike Rochip project and that as such, owns all copyrights.

Another fun freelance project I got to work on was for my friend's father, Jim Stein, and his Playground Safety Inspection company, Play Safe Inspection!
As a kid, I always loved going to playgrounds. But back then it was usually hot metal where you'd burn your hand or a hot metal slide where you'd burn your little tush. These days kids have the durable, heavy duty plastic playgrounds w/ that cool spongy, rubber floor! It's Jim's job to make sure all those items are safe and on the right levels for kids to truly enjoy themselves (and not get hurt!)

This logo image will be used for thumb drives Jim will give to his clients.

Jim is going to be using this image for his website banner and letterheads!

This image will be used for the Playground Association's magazine for Southern California!

Have a playground in your area, or want to look up safety tips? Visit Jim's page today!
Thanks Jim & Carmel! BTW, I am available for freelance, so please hook a brother up!

"What's that they say about good intentions?"

I was recently interviewed by Kyle Maki.
Kyle's a producer for Time Warner Cable and he recently interviewed me at my Alma Mater, Calarts, for a pop culture segment that will air soon on TWC's on demand service. Keep your eyes peeled here for mo' info on that (and how to watch it) in the future!
Here are some behind the scenes pix:
