THE AYATOLLAH OF ROCK'N'ROLLA

Welcome to my stupid Tumblr! If you like my work, you should check out my portfolio at jgillustration.com, where I have lots more!
This week I got to work on one of the coolest assignments I’ve had in a while!  I designed, and Pizza Party Printing printed, the poster for Italian horror prog-rock legends Goblin’s Baltimore show on their first North American tour ever!  They’re the guys that did the soundtracks to Dawn of the Dead, Suspiria, Deep Red, etc.  This print is limited to 66 copies sold at the show and is 4 colors on metallic blood red paper!  So stoked about this one!!!

wemakebelieve asked: You gotta do more Book of the New Sun stuff! I am in absolute love with those books!

Oh man, Book of the New Sun is for real my favorite series of books ever.  Well, those and Book of the Long Sun are kind of tied.  I’m planning on doing some more drawings from them in the future, so keep your eyes peeled!

illseabass asked: Dear Jimmy, what places do you recommend to get booklets and books printed? Thanks!

I’ve been printing my stuff through a shop called Work Printing (www.workprinting.com) which is a printer who is local to Baltimore. They’re quick and affordable, and produce great prints!  I’d recommend them all the way.

tonyhell asked: I love the Phantasm 2 shirt design you did! Any chance I could buy one from you?

Thanks!  Funny enough, that’s the only shirt that I designed for one of those movie nights that we never ended up printing!  We had a hurricane the same weekend that it was supposed to play so we had to postpone it and then we never got around to doing it.  Sorry!

hillbillywolf asked: Did you do any work on the Lewis Trondheim comic "Dungeon"?

Whoa!  This one has been sitting here for a while!  Sorry I didn’t answer sooner!

I WISH man!  Dungeon is one of my all time favorite comics!

Alright sweet dudes and sweet ladies!!!  Alllllll that stuff that debuted at SPX this year is now available for purchase from my webstore!  There are VERY LIMITED quantities of everything left (about 15 copies of Executioner and Friend, less than 30 of Ugs, Fugs, and Grossos regular edition, and about 15 of my Lady Knight print), so act now before it’s too late!  I also had enough leftover stuff to make 10 more copies of the Special Edition of Ugs, Fugs, and Grossos, so if you weren’t able to get one at the show or couldn’t make it out and wanted one then now’s the time!

I AM SO STOKED FOR SPX YOU GUYS!!!!

What am I going to have there to sell you ask?  I am going to have a bunch of cool new stuff as well as a few things from last year too!

Executioner and Friend: Collected Short Comics- This is a collection of comics about an executioner, named Executioner, and his friend, named Friend, and their adventures in the dungeon world they live in.  Think equal parts Donjon, Calvin and Hobbes, and Prison Pit!

Ugs, Fugs, and Grossos- 28 pages of Ug-ass Mugs, Fug-ass Fugs, and Gross-ass grossos wrapped in a cover screen printed with barf, fart juice, and boogers.

Ugs, Fugs, and Grossos SPECIAL EDITION- Ever wanted to buy a book that came with a temporary tattoo, a glow in the dark patch, a shinny-ass button, and A BARF BAG FULL OF FAKE VOMIT?

I’ll also have:
Roll For Initiative
and Bits in Multiples of Eight- Both books that came out at last year’s SPX!  One’s about Dungeons and Dragons, and one’s about old-school video gaming!  Which one is which though?  You be the judge!

A whole buttload of screen prints! That’s right!  I’ll have a glow in the dark poster of Dagon that I did for Trevor Henderson’s Puffed Shoggoths zine (available at his table), a print of my piece for the Lady Knights & Women Warriors zine (available at my table), as well as a couple of video game prints that I made last year!

Come see me at table M7 and some of my all time best buds at the tables around it this weekend!  Awww yeaaahhh!!!

Welcome to i like monsrs wen they fite!  20 years ago today I started second grade at an elementary school in upstate New York.  My teacher had us keep daily journals where we’d write and draw pictures.  I found this journal a few years ago and have decided now, exactly 20 years later, I need to share my drawings of monsters, Street Fighter II, dinosaurs, monsters, Mortal Kombat, X-Men, and monsters, as well as my teacher’s pretty passive aggressive responses to them.  This blog will be updated almost daily with a new page from my journal on the day that I drew it.

Hey guys!  I’ve started a tumblr where I post, on the day that I drew them, drawings that I did in my marble notebook journal 20 years ago in second grade!  Follow it and check out how much I loved monsters, dinosaurs and X-men, as well as my teachers preeetty passive-aggressive comments about them! :D

Alright doods of all genders, here’s the last little bit I’m going to post about my book “Executioner and Friend: Collected Short Comics” before it comes out next weekend at this year’s Small Press Expo

Here’s the cover of the book, which I screen printed over the weekend, and the two first pages as well! 

What the hell is a slime golem you ask?  Find out in a week!

SPX COMETH!

Check this oouuuuttt…

Here’s “Ugs, Fugs and Grossos”, 28 pages of ug-ass mugs, fug-ass fugs, and gross-ass grossos; and “Executioner and Friend”, dungeons, dragons, and dick jokes, each by Jimmy Giegerich.

"Heroical #1" is an 11" X 14" zine by David Plunkert chock full of weirdo super hero stuff, and playfully off-beat heros.

The very exciting “Fantasy Basketball” by Sam Bosma will be in the mix as well and it’s sure to be mind-blowingly good.

Alex Fine is debuting “Il Bruto”, a hilarious collection of Charles Bronson pin ups in classic action movie rolls.

"Warlow’s Guide to Wizards, Sorceri & Familiars Arcane" by yours truly will be there of course!

Two new comics from Haleigh Buck of Hey Boy Comics will be debuting as well: “Herman the Hot Dog” and “Internet Diarrhea”, sure to be goofy-as-hell, wildly inappropriate, and full of schadenfreude.

Last but not least, Kali Ciesemier will be selling some gorgeous prints of her work that are not to be missed!

That’s what we got for you guys! Come to tables M5-M8 to get your hands on it all! We’ll see you there, pals.

ARE YOU EVEN READY FOR HOW MUCH COOL STUFF WE’RE GONNA HAVE?

(via spx)

Doods.  Are you ready?  My new zine, Ugs, Fugs, and Grossos is coming out in less than a month!  28 slime dripping, acne covered, veiny pages of ug-ass mugs, fug-ass fugs, and gross-ass grossos in a 3 color screen printed wraparound cover can be yours for 8 bucks for the regular edition or 13 bucks for the special edition at this year’s Small Press Expo!  What’s in the special edition you ask?  Oh, I dunno, maybe only a temporary tattoo, fake vomit, and some other rad shit that will glow in the dark or something!
