My name is Jonathan Rector, and I'm a Comic Book Illustrator for over 10 years.

I am currently looking for new comic book work. If you have need of an illustrator for pencils / and or inks, please send me a NOTE.

Thank you for your time, and I hope to talk with you soon!

Hiya Jonathan, just wanted to give you a shout-out to say how inspirational your videos are!
I discovered them about 2 months ago, and have been watching them while I sketch out my own comic. It's really great to hear people that are in the industry talk about it cause some of us have no one in our 'real' lives that have anything to do with comics (or any kind of art, for that matter). So a big thanks for doing the YouTube stuff!

I'm currently trying to get into the comic field myself, and appreciate all the tips and techniques you share. You mentioned that you had no idea that people would be interested in real-time vids of you working. I wanted to let you know that the real-time vids are what I look for for two reasons: 1) they show your technique in a way that is easily decipherable to anyone, that is, anyone can see HOW you are doing your artwork as you do it, and that builds up into explaining WHY as the video progresses. Most of that gets lost when you show a sped up version. 2) The longer videos are great to listen to while we are sketching out our own stuff. When spending hour after hour sketching, the time passes so much smoother and more productive when there's someone talking about something similar to what we are working on.

And I'll end this with a quick question: Is there a way to get an alert or something like that when you are going to have a live stream? I'd love to be able to post comments to you and the other watchers as you work! 

Thanks for reading and sketch like there's no tomorrow! :)

Thanks web!

Just a quick reply, I don't think LiveStream provides any way to do notifications. I'll have to look into it to make it easier for people to be notified. As of right now, Twitter / Facebook is the best / only real way. Sorry for that.

Hi Jonathan, I'm a beginning comic artist/hobbyist. I've been watching your art videos and looking at your art for about two years now. they've helped me improve so much and take into account important things that I never would have considered otherwise. Thank you so much. I was wondering if you review beginners work in order to give them pointers? I admire you so much and would be honored to have you even glance at my work.
