Jason Lenox Conan Artwork- Dark Horse Comics

So a project that I initiated 12 months ago finally paid off when a conversation with Dark Horse writer Tim Truman turned into my “Tower of the Elephant” pinup this winter and Dark Horse Editor Philip Simon put my artwork of Conan The Barbarian into KING CONAN Issue #5 of #6 “Conan the Conqueror” that came out in June 2014, I just got my copy last weekend, so I’m playing catch up here on it.

Thanks to Dani Kaulakis for the awesome job coloring it.

So here is the art as it appeared in a 1/4 page shot of glory in the book, the full sized artwork with colors from Dani Kaulakis, and the cover to the issue that it appears in.

You can read my write ups on the original art pencils here and inks here.

Now I am a “Dark Horse Art Contributor” .. so get out there and get a copy so I can sign it for you!

“HELLBENT FOR INKING” 2014 Jason Lenox Convention Tour Tee Shirt Artwork

2014 means some awesome conventions that I’ll be at, and since I identify as the “Metal Artist” on the con circuit, just like last year, I needed a metal themed tour shirt for the fans, and this year is no different- and super local graphic artist Andy Mylin took my wishes to make a JUDAS PRIEST Themed Jason Lenox shirt into reality with some of my recent artwork.  Here is the new Shirt Artwork that will be for Sale as tee shirts starting in January of 2014 via my website or with me at comic shows at my table/booth. Below are the Front and Back artwork for my 2014 theme “HELLBENT FOR INKING” and the art from Priest’s album “HELLBENT FOR LEATHER” that Andy used as a template is below all of that.

Check out Andy’s website here and contact him if you need some great graphic design and artwork in general if you dig his style- I know I do!

Enjoy some killer tee shirts in a few weeks from yours truly!

Wrap Around Cover Art: “Painted Ladies of San Quentin” – Final Colors

As we hit the home stretch of completing my “Painted Ladies of San Quentin” project, and with it, my second anthology book- “UGLI Studios Presents #2″ with Brian Allen, and Joe Freistuhler, this completed wrap around colored cover just came in from Brian, who did an amazing job.

First of all, Im lucky to know this guy for two big reasons.

#1- As a fan of his art, I’m blessed to have him work his magic on my pen and inks- this piece has been waiting for color for almost a year now, and he knocked it out of the park with the antiqued look I asked him to achieve. 

#2- Brian is a great friend and it has been great working with him on this anthology comic, while I’m excited to see it wrap up, I’ll miss the experience. I’ve learned alot from Brian about everything from the business of art, to the highs and lows of the convention world and lots of small tech tips from pens to networking.  For all of that- I am eternally grateful as well!

So check out my pencils, inks and the final colors Brian Allen added on the wrap around cover part of this upcoming comic from UGLI STUDIOS!

And hit up Brian on facebook here and see what other wild stuff he is up to!

Painted Ladies of San Quentin- Promotional Artwork

Just a sweet little postcard I made up to start the drumbeat of promoting this incredible western I’ve been working on for months… I always hated that corny western typeset/font, but for the first time in my life- it makes sense on where to use it!  I also used a little bit of Microsoft Paint and Microsoft Picture Viewer to do the color effect- yes I did some computer coloring- simple, yet effective to give it a burning/old photo look to it.

 Enjoy and Share!

30 Years Later….

30 Years ago, an 8 year old Jason Lenox in 1983 started making a “Dungeons and Dragons” Fiend Folio Book because his Mom and Dad wouldnt buy him one due to the objectionable content for a child.  In 2013 a much older (30 years) Jason Lenox is going to finish the job he started 30 years ago.  Here is a preview of some of this unseen in forever artwork I snagged out of my attic last December!
