On Tumblr and other places, I’ve been (inconsistently) posting Fanart on Fridays. I’ve posted this sheet before in other places, but I’m just so tickled every time I see this.
If you don’t know who this is, don’t worry. He’s niche, even in the cannon he’s from.
This is Janemba, the main antagonist of Dragonball Z movie 12: Fusion Reborn. Folks in the fandom like to say he’s a worse version of Buu, but I respectfully disagree. To me, Buu is a recent prison escapee with absolute freedom to do whatever he wants, so the world is his toy. I see Janemba not as that, but as a potential god of Chaos. In the movie, he’s supposed to be Evil Incarnate. But how can you say that about a teenage boy caught in a chemical explosion because he had his earbuds in?
Nah. Janemba’s just here for a good time and to make shit up as he goes along. It’s just that he doesn’t take criticism very well. Like, he literally cracks if you insult him.
The other thing about Janemba is: he never speaks. Yup, he’s a mute villain.
This makes some people think, “Oh, he doesn’t talk? Then he has no personality.”
And I saw that train of thought and went, “What if Janemba, mute as he is…had the same breadth of expressions as Crash Bandicoot?”
Both characters are mute! But that doesn’t stop them from having a personality! So I drew this character sheet as a proof of concept. Like, “Hey! Janemba can be expressive, too!”
He’s also just plain fun to draw for me. So if you want to see more of this guy, let me know and I will post more stuff.
That’s all for now. Thank you for checking this out!
Yes, I do! I did remove the things that are sold out, so those things I removed are gone forever. BUT…I still have mystery bags. Plus I will be making more mystery bags soon. Also, they’re now $1 (and shipping is $5 for USA shoppers).
This Saturday is Free Comic Book Day – and I’m making a guest appearance!
See, the fine folks at Superscript Comics & Games liked having me at the Genghis Con Mini Pop Up Event last month. (Me and a bunch of others, to be fair). They liked us SO much that they invited us to once again showcase at their Free Comic Book Day Event.
So Saturday, August 14, from 3 to 8 pm EDT, I’ll be showcasing my work! And lots of other folks will showcase there, too! (Superscript has been giving creator shout-outs on their Instagram. Go check it out).
Now, this event is SO big that the artists and vendors will be in Bottlehouse Lakewood across the street from Superscript. So keep that in mind if you’re able to be there in person. Also, masks will be available and encouraged, as well as social distancing guidelines.
If you’re a reader who met me through the Genghis Con Pop Up event – or you’re just local to Lakewood/Cleveland – I have a special surprise for you. I’m announcing it in a special edition Thursday email newsletter. So if you’re not on the newsletter yet, be sure to sign up. It’s free and I don’t sell your email to anybody.
As a gentle reminder, Friday is the LAST DAY for my Ko-Fi Clearance Event. Anything not sold will go with me to Free Comic Book Day – but the show is the FINAL day to get the clearance items. Anything marked for clearance will not be at any show after Saturday.
