Hey everyone!! Just a quick update that my web store has a new Skitzo the Killer Bear shirt available! There is a black and white version and a 3-color version. So if you like wearing the twisted grin of a psycho killer cartoon bear, this is the one for you. :) Check it out: In The Dark Web Store!

In other news, I hope everyone had a nice Pico day! I saw this piece even had a Skitzo the Bear cameo! So cool, thanks @ScepterDPinoy for including my character. See if you can find him in the chaos!



and lastly, I did a piece for the sailor moon redraw challenge that's been floating all over the internet haha. You can see how I really captured the charm of the show ;)



Anyways, more art and cartoons on the way!!

Hello everyone! Well it's been a while since my last journal here and a few things have happened since.


First, the Latino Animation Festival in January was a huge success and we had a full turn out in Las Vegas. A big thank you to the artists who showed their animations, Maya Cinemas for providing the location, and the Latino Comics Expo for trusting me to curate it all :) Little did I know it would be the first and LAST event that was gonna happen this year, because once Covid19 took the stage...basically so ended all my planned comic cons for this year. All canceled! DANG! I was very grateful that the one event I poured months of personal work into didn't get nixed.


And since I have now been confined to working from home and staying at home, I took this time to restructure my year. With no more travel and cons planned, I am going to use this year as a time for mega ART production! I hope to get a new Skitzo the Bear cartoon short out by July, to get In The Dark: Issue 4 out by Oct, and to make a bunch of new art along the way. I am also ramping up my art store with new stuff. Coming soon: A new t-shirt design, a new enamel pin, a new art poster, and some new art prints!


And speaking of art prints, check out this new In The Dark art piece I drew and posted on NG recently! :)

Soon to be a print!


And if you like behind the scenes stuff like roughs, flat coloring, and sketch book doodles I don't post anywhere, you can also check out my Patreon and support me there too.


Anyways, hope you are all staying safe and keeping busy in any creative way you can! Don't forget that Pico day is May 9th (that's next Saturday!). If I see any stand out "In The Dark" or "Skitzo the Bear" Fan Art for Pico Day you can except an extra (secret) goodie prize from me. 🤫

CALL TO ALL LATINO ANIMATORS!!

 

The Latino Comics Expo (LCX) in conjunction with Maya Cinemas are running a fundraiser Animation Festival in North Las Vegas on January 25th, 2020. And we are now taking submissions for the show!

SOME INFO ABOUT LCX:

--------------------------------------------

The Latino Comics Expo (LCX) is a Latino-centered comic book convention that was co-founded in 2011 by Ricardo Padilla and Javier Hernandez. They feature and promote comics and art, music, and culture by Latino artists from all over the US and internationally too.

This year they are doing a fundraiser for the Expo by running an Animation Festival to showcase local and international Latin animators. Proceeds to the event go directly to help keep the Expo alive and running, and in exchange animators who may not have had the opportunities to screen or show their shorts in a theater get the spotlight and a live audience. We also do a raffle prize of artwork, have comics and swag for sale and a question and answer features with artists after the screening.

So starting today, LCX is taking submissions for it 3nd Animation Festival! There is NO FEE to submit, and all entries will be notified a week after the cutoff date Dec 26th if their film was picked for the screening. You don’t need to be present to the show to have your work shown, (but if you do, we do a live mic intro with the creators before your piece screens).

====================================

RULES:

-All entries must be original works. No parodies or fan animations will be allowed.

-You must be 18yrs or older to submit.

-You must have the rights or legal permissions to use the audio/music in your films.

-We are looking for independent shorts in English or Spanish. If your animation is in Spanish, please include English subs directly burned into your piece. (No secondary subtitle files to attach).

- Films made by Latino animators or of Latino decent are highly encouraged to enter. We will also accept works that showcase Latino iconography, culture, or characters even if you may not be Latino.

-If your work is selected, please be able to provide a high-res copy of your animation in H.264 video codec and saved as a .mp4 video file.

-Minimum runtime length: 1 min, Maximum length: 15 mins

==============================

HOW TO SUBMIT:

-Send an email with a link to your video to lcx.submit.animation@gmail.com

Please also include the following info in your email:

1. Your first and last name

2. Where are you located? (ex. California, USA. Chile, Mexico?)

6. The medium used. (ex. Flash, hand-drawn, stop motion, CGI, etc…)

Haven't updated this journal in a while! So let get started with some announcements! 


1. First, I hope every one has a good Halloween! I will be giving out candy to trick or treaters while dressed as a devil this year. I also carved a pumpkin of Skitzo for the first time...it was a challenge but I was happy with the results! Check it out! https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/comick/skitzo-the-pumpkin


iu_65001_1729533.jpg


2. I actually was knee-deep into drawing Creeptober/Inktober doodles this month...but I kinda got too slow and now I think its too late for me to catch up heh. The good news that comes from this, is that the time I didn't use for the doodles was invested into completing a new Skitzo The Bear cartoon! I will post it on here (Newgrounds), DA and Youtube this Halloween.

iu_64998_1729533.jpg


3. The next comic con I am scheduled to attend is the Reno Pop Culture Con this Nov 8-10th. This is the first year for this con so I have no idea if it will be a hit or not but it wasn't far to travel and I was able to secure a nice big table there. Expect some extra In The Dark Goodies and ordinal art at the event. 

iu_64999_1729533.jpg


4. I will also be doing a creepy Xmas card this year...coming in Dec if you ordered from my webstore this year (2019) or are a member on my Patreon, you will get one of these cards! And a sneak peek of the art will be on my Patreon coming soon too...


5. Then coming up this January I will be curating the 3rd year of the Latino Animation Festival hosted by The Latino Comics Expo. It will be in Las Vegas and have a collection of Latin animation for your eyes to feast on! I did the save the date art for it too!


iu_65000_1729533.jpg


And that's all I have for now! Stay tooned for more art and posts coming up!! And thanks again to my fans for being so patient and supportive of my art! I really appreciate it tons!!!

First, I wanna thank all the people who participated in the Skitzo Fan Art Contest on Pico Day!! There were some really awesome entries and I thought long and hard on the winners...in fact I decided that both the 1st and 2nd place winners get a Skitzo glowing red eyes plush because it was so damn close. So here you go, THE WINNERS!!


1st Place: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/sirlenward/skitzo-day By @sirlenward

The idea that Skitzo actually made it his own "Skitzo Day" and even brutally attacked Pico and the Tank men was pretty hilarious and hard core haha. I also really loved the art style and the way the piece mixed Pico day and Skitzo into a great homage to both characters. Gotta love Newgrounds and the fact Skitzo lives here!


@sirlenward gets: (1) Skitzo the Bear plush toy with glowing red eyes!

(1) Skitzo the Bear "Totoro Bus stop" Limited Art Poster #3 of 40

(1) Skitzo the Bear Die cut Sticker 4x6


iu_26552_1729533.jpg



2nd Place: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/orbital-death-ray/saturday-morning-skitzo By @orbital-death-ray

I really loved the direct approach Skitzo has in this piece and the super sharp shark-like teeth he has that wraps around his mouth. The glowing green textures in the TV and the grimy aura that's comes from it made the piece really glow with Skitzo's presence too! You didn't know that saturday morning cartoons could kill you?? Say hi to Skitzo!!


@Orbital-Death-Ray gets: (1) Skitzo the Bear plush toy with glowing red eyes!

(1) Skitzo the Bear "Totoro Bus Stop" Limited Art Poster #4 of 40

(1) Skitzo the Bear button


iu_26554_1729533.jpg


3rd Place: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/goofballsocksy/skitzo By @goofballsocksy

This one was very well colored and clean linework, had a cool red hellish background and showed Skitzo in his true home...HELL! The bloody knife with golden handle and his yellow teeth were awesome touches and I just liked how the character was posed and drawn the most. If you ever visit Hell do not bump into THIS GUY unless you wanna lose an organ haha.


@goofballsocksy gets: (1) Skitzo the Bear Keychain

(1) Skitzo The Bear button


iu_26553_1729533.jpg

So that's a wrap!! Again thanks to all the fans who drew a Skitzo picture for Pico Day, I hope everyone had a little fun with my twisted cartoon character!

So if you read Tom's recent post, PICO day is coming on MAY 11th! And he is encouraging fan art of characters that live here on Newgrounds! Skitzo the 1920's Killer Bear has been on Newgrounds since 2010! And despite him having no official "series page" with his animations, I owe a LOT to my fans here who have always posted comments and kind words about how much they love my twisted cartoon killer bear animations. And here we are still going strong!!


SO, for this Pico Day event I want to throw in some extra prizes for any fan art of SKITZO! :D That's right, make a piece of Skitzo the bear fan art and be sure to include the official Pico Day hashtag 'picoday2019' plus add in hashtag 'skitzofan2019' and I will give some extra prizes to the top 3 best art pieces I like (regardless of if they make any spot on the Pico Day contest heh).


The only rule I have is you MUST post the Skitzo fan art on Newgrounds.com. NO TWITTER, DA, OR TUMBLR **edit: you can post the fanart on those sites, but they wont count if one version is not posted on Newgrounds too!). It's supposed to be a way to give a shout out to Newgrounds and the fact they have housed my Skitzo cartoons for all these years and I want them to be here for many more years to come :D


So what are the prizes?


BEST ART

1st place: Skitzo the bear plush toy (with glowing red eyes!) + A limited edition Skitzo "Totoro" poster 13x19 (number 3/40) + Skitzo Sticker. ($65 value)
