I binged half the gallery tonight. Never been more glad to wake up in the middle of the night! I'll be watching you!

Some of the funniest art work I've ever seen.

dude, I have to hand to ya, you've created a character that has redefined the term Strong Woman. Gogo is truly the most original chraracter out there today. I hope you find more success with this chraracter

Commission: The Noodle Lady by VanHeist
Commission: The Noodle Lady
Part 2 of a commission for :iconmr-undisclosed: in which his OC Felicity drops in on the Bomango clan for a pickup. Stretchy parts is unsettling to Gogo. Pablo makes no sudden moves. But for Didi, it was Tuesday. It's nice having company over!
Commission: Sparkling Acquisitions by VanHeist
Commission: Sparkling Acquisitions
part 1 of a commission for :iconmr-undisclosed: of his OC Felicity, a rather stretchy sort of gal with a knack for stealing on demand. (Or perhaps on principle, because SPARKLY THINGS!) You have to love your work. Rates are negotiable!Call today!

"Going pretty good! How 'bout YOU?"


Didi grimly remembered leaving the oven on. Whatever happened next, her cookies would be hopelessly burned. Her grip tightened on the throttle.
  • Mood: Joy
Jordan Haro (aka DeadTom22) :iconbard71: and Sandra Espinoza have done it again, this time with an old favorite arc of the gallery. (Now with part 4!)


(from hot to death by VanHeist and Didisattva by VanHeist and me of three by VanHeistand beautiful freak by VanHeist and a season in hell by VanHeist)

Enjoy, and see you later! :salute:

character concept teaser time? character concept teaser time! (read: not a comic, just props! for...future comics...)

So, been workshopping a little bit of cast expansion for future Bomango stories, and these are four of the big hitters who've been hammered out so far. They've all appeared at least once somewhere in the gallery, but here's a more formal presentation, with a smidge of info.

From left to right:

1) Ara -- Tiny, floaty, makes Didi look emo by comparison. Likes: hot dogs, kabobs, coffee, tea, migration routes of various itinerant life forms, contemplating wavelengths, weighing esoteric sociopolitical codes of triassic invertebrates against modern infrastructural principles, pointless philosophizing. Has amazing glowy hair.

2) Safara -- Wrathful fire. Never sleeps. Fastidious as balls, and also plain fast. Will whip, slash, pummel, kick, stomp, incinerate, or all the above in order to achieve desired goal if simple seething glare does not yield results. Gives a damn to terrifying extent.  Possesses all the romance and flirtatiousness of a chopping block. Still amazingly single.

3) Titus -- Freakin' 'uge. Not very good at doorways or most vehicles. Highly competitive, highly decorated, can literally wear a group of fangirls as outer layer of clothing. Has no indoor voice. Generally good-natured, but described as "very intense" by many people and a few continents. Do not shake his hand if possible.

4) Moto -- Brilliant. Also crazy. Also highly addictive personality. Also very paranoid about WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU LOOKING AT? LET ME SEE YOUR FACE FOR A SECOND! Fluid sense of style, attitude, and number and type of limbs necessary on a given day. Will cut you.

bah...concept is fun and all, but i can't wait to get to stories :B

enjoy for now anyway! :salute:
Because all the world was holding its collective breath and absolutely nothing else was happening on Earth except worrying about my problems...

*snort, chuckle*

Well, there MAY be a few things going on more important than some deviantart doodler whining about his broken toys, but anyway.

An update on the art situation here at VanHeist command central. My suite of digital tools remains offline as it's apparent that my tablet itself--not the stylus, as hoped--has succumbed to an advanced case of the herp-a-derp-whoopsy-plops and can't sustain so much as a squiggly line without clipping, skipping, or making whatever the hardware equivalent of a dismissive fart noise is. Bummer. Over a decade of use is pretty much a win for a tool so regularly punished.

So I've bit the bullet (no idea where that phrase comes from, by the way) and threw money at a brand new Intuos Pro which should arrive in a week or so. I would have sprung for a Cintiq like all the cool kids, but the genie only granted me my wish for stunning good looks, and not waterfalls of money or pants-crappingly expensive art tools, and besides, the Intuos series has served me quite well in making mah silly li'l doodlez, so there ya go.

As previously reported, this does mean that there will be approximately Jack Schizzle-Squats going on for me here in the gallery until the new toy arrives (and works, presumably), so I apologize once again to waiting commissioners and anyone wondering why the hell I'm not posting anything. In the meantime, this presents an opportunity to get back in touch with my roots by swivveling over to my actual drawing desk, and using pencil and paper just like my Cro-Magnon ancestors did. It'll scare the hell out of my pencil sharpener, which probably assumed a long time ago it was retired. GET READY TO CHEW SOME WOOD AND GRAPHITE, BOSTON McSPINNY!

That's about it for now. You can go back to paying attention to important things now!

peace! :salute:

Have you seen the show Steven Universe? I ask only because of the villain Jasper they introduced in the season finale would look amazing going up against Gogo or chilling out with her. That probably comes off as a thinly veiled request and if you're too busy for a suggestion then I need to get on your commission list.

I gotta say that I love your work, the art and stories are amazing. I have but on question, besides Prints how can I give you all my monies so that your work will continue? Just wanted to ask, keep up the amazing job!

As much as I would like to be able to declare to everyone "GIVE ME ALL THE MONIES" so I could quit my day job and just draw stuff 24/7 (and therefore theoretically post much more consistently), I want to embrace a system that encourages support but also ensures delivery on my end of things.

Which is a long way of saying "I'm working on a way to get paid" :XD: Stay tuned!

And thanks! :)

What if




She'd probably end up falling in love with him or something, but anyway:

You rock and your art rocks and your writing rocks. Keep on doing what you're doing (if it pleases you, I mean). Just remember to keep your preserves in a convenient place.

Thanks, chief. And I always keep my jam....
