Welcome to 2012!
2012 has started off with a bang for me! Literally. Laces untied, but off and running like a Muthaf*cka! I suspect it has something to do w/ the fact that it's the Year of the Dragon, and being that I was born under the Year of the Dragon (I'm a "Fire" dragon, apparently a double powerful version)... Let's just say 2012 and I have been pretty great homeys to one another thus far! Keep it up 2012!
Not only did 2012 start me off with a pretty huge freelance deal right off the bat... can't talk much about it right now save for I'm lead character designer for a rad hybrid toy/game for the iPad/iPod! But the 2nd week of January had me book-ended with 2 equally amazing Interviews on and about me!
Monday Jan. 9th, 2012 I was Person of the week for A Collection Of!
A Collection Of is run by 2 amazing girls named Stefani Greenwood & Gilda Davidian and they post all sorts of cool!
Cool stuff like this Daily Dohtrait I did of them and my awesome interview! Which you can check out, here: http://www.collectionof.org/2012/01/09/p-e-r-s-o-n-63/
Enjoy my weirdness!
Friday January 13th, 2012 I was featured on Chubstr, an online fashion resource for stylish men of all sizes! Bruce Sturgell, the guy who runs Chubstr, is an all around great guy, who has great taste, and gave me some pretty fun questions! Everything you've wanted to know about Jeaux Janovsky but were afraid to ask: http://chubstr.com/2012/features/a-conversation-with-jeaux-janovsky/
I gave Chubstr an exclusive first crack of the debut of an animated pitch promo of mine called Samurai Nanny!
The Samurai Nanny promo was animated, co-written, co-directed by my good friend Avi Tuchman, whose work graces the very bottom of this blog as well! (Scroll AAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL the way down til you see a dancing computer!) Avi's an amazing animator, and I really love how the Sam Nan promo came out! Equally amazing music done by my other good pal, Brian Barrale, and great sfx by Michael Schmidt. Totally Samuradical job guys! Thank you!
In the Chubstr article I mentioned what's going on for me in the 2012 pipeline!
2 awesome things in the horizon:
Animal Sounds: the web comic experience coming soon from my good high-school friend Liz Ohanesian & Yours Truly!
Liz has been tracking our progress on her ultra awesome site! http://beatique.net/jeaux-morrissey-and-animal-sounds/ & http://beatique.net/animal-sounds-update-1-fun-at-the-mall-with-pizza-and-glow-sticks/
I can't wait til you see what we've got in store for you! For now, if you wanna laugh, go peep our circa 2006 Animal Sounds blog! No, really! A) cuz it's funny! And B) cause it's OLD. And that's funny!
2nd Awesome thing that you will HAVE to see in 2012...
"What is Epilogue?" Some say in whispers down darkened alleyways...
Sometimes we answer, "Post Apocalyptic Roaches.", also with a whisper.
"What's that?" they whisper back.
We answer, but with a firmer whisper than the wispy whisper we offered before, "It's sorta like Mad Max... but with cockroaches!"
And then they're all, "Whaaa?" whispering all inquisitive like.
We reply w/ a sterner whisper, "It's a graphic novel. And it's gonna be awesome!"
The "WE" is gonna be my pal Daniel Levitch and I. Daniel is a great guy, and I'm glad I connected with him via our significant others. No, not the whispering alleyway people! Ava & Amber, our lovely maidens of love and stuff!
Last year, I did some illustration work for Daniel on his film Swine that they used for the dvd packagaing and menus! Swine is amazing. Find a copy today, anywhere you can!
Here's the Swine trailer:
I have some other exciting news further down the road, but I'm keeping that mummy under wraps til I can unveil the news, so stay tuned friendletons!
2012 is gonna melt faces off with all kinds of Jeaux brand Awesome!
