BOOYAH: A new cartoon I did about Big Papa Booyah, a pro wrestler that also will appear in the upcoming film I'm doing with indie animation king Bill Plympton, REVENGEANCE (except he's a burn out in that film). This is sort of a backstory on Booyah, who he was BEFORE Revengeance happens. Lots of lowlife bad behavior in this one....Also, you'll get a taste of another character, wrestling CEO Royce Vargas. I play him in this cartoon, but famed cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz is playing him in the Revengeance movie! Enjoy!
And....Subscribe to my YouTube channel if you dig it!

|Jim Lujan (me) and the maestro, Bil Plympton at the Plymptoons panel.|
I had a great time at Comic-Con this year. I didn't have a booth, so I got to enjoy the show and the town with my wife Leann. That was amazingly cool. Speaking of cool things, I also got to co-host the Plymptoons panel on Friday. We showed the 2 minute trailer for Revengeance and a bunch of Bill Plympton's other shorts, including the world premiere of the Loneliest Stoplight (starring Patton Oswalt). As for Revengeance, Great response! People are starting to feel the vibe, the more we show them what the vibe is. It was a good time. I really enjoyed interviewing Bill about his other films and picking his brain about his work method. Very inspiring. Looking forward to Comic-Con 2016 when we have Revengeance DONE....or right about DONE! Here is the audio recording from the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con Plymptoons Panel (via Soundcloud).

Here it is. The brand new animated music video (5th one) I did for Kounterclockwise called "UP FOR SALE". It features and opening skit with a boss type character called Billzy Bubb, voiced by none other than famed cartoonist/my pal Jamar Nicholas. Theres a ton of stuff inthis video and you may catch t all after 200 or 300 views! It'll have you asking the question: "Would you sell your soul for the deal...?"

|Me n' me Lady|
|One of these dudes is animation legend Bill Plympton.|
|The afterparty was top notch.|
The Annie awards were fantastic. What a classy event. In case you don't know- the Annie awards are basically the Oscars for animation. Bill Plympton was nominated for 3 Annies this year. He's won before. It was an honor, this year, to be associated with Bill because of our in production film, Revengeance. Next year, I hope we get to attend and actually experience peoples reactions to our film. That will be a surreality!

Here it is...the latest music video I did for Kounterclockwise: COSMONAUT ROCK. The song originally appeared in Forever-Land, but this video is inspired and parodies the Star Wars films (and a little bit 2001 Space Odyssey). May the force be with you all...Enjoy!

The Latino Comics Expo was a blast! Thank you to the organizers Ricardo Padilla and Javier Hernandez and to all that attended. The Saint Claire hotel was truly beautiful. San Jose State University (where the expo was held) was awesome. What an incredible six story library. Downtown San Jose was great too. Lots of really cool old buildings. Leann and I walked all around and checked out the local sites. As far as my panels at the Expo, The animations screenings went really well and the Q and A sessions were really heartwarming. Great questions asked. Thanks again everybody!

I LOVE making my cartoon films. It is something that brings me a lot of joy, and I really hope they bring you a lot of joy too. If you enjoy my work and want to support it (in any way), I would greatly appreciate it if you would head over to PATREON.COM and become a Patron. Even a little bit helps. If enough people support, it really adds up fast and will help me in the production of my animated films.
Here's how it works:
1) Head over to www.patreon.com/jimlujan
2) Click "Become a Patron"
3) Choose any amount you would like to contribute per film
(set a max monthly limit so you don't go broke)
4) Enjoy the films and some exclusive Patron content!
That's it! Easy as pie! It really does help. The films will always be free to enjoy, but this is a way to show support for the art that you enjoy. All an any amount is more than appreciated!

Watch this video and be sooooo inspired to support my cartoons!
What is Patreon? Patreon is an easy way for those who have enjoyed my work in the past (and brand new fans) to contribute a little something back and get some really cool stuff in return. Each time I put out a new animated film, you decide what amount you are comfortable contributing and set your limit of how many times per month. Easy as that!
You can also back out at anytime. No harm- no foul. It really will help to keep these films moving forward. It gives me, the creator, some revenue for my work. Everybody is happy! I'm really looking forward to connecting with the people who really enjoy my films...and rolling around on my living room floor in the millions of dollars contributed!

Bill talks about Cheatin', Footprints, Deep End, the Your Face Global Jam, his distribution deal, and of course, the in progress biker-revenge comedy feature Revengeance.... Enjoy!
