Pere Noel Day 09

That's it! And submitted on Christmas Day, no less! I hope you are all having a great Christmas!

To clarify, their fear of soldiers are real and refer to the redshirts usually sent by the story's main villain.

Pere Noel Day 08

Madame Paisley collects so many kinds of textiles, it's almost obsessive, and because the caravan is her's, the inside is padded with countless seas of drapery and rugs.

Pere Noel Day 07

That IS Jack keeping Yvette company for the night. And yes, that IS a Jack pillow that he magically materialized.

Another member of the troupe is a blue-skinned man so mysterious, none of the other characters know his name. Like a horse, he prefers to sleep standing up, against a wall or something like it... not very calming to anyone who happens to walk past him.

Pere Noel Day 06

This one of the pages I had immediately envisioned when I first started this one-shot comic. However, it took way longer than the usual page. Jack was modeled on the personality of a comedian anyway, so it seemed only natural that he'd give a speech before the dinner. He also subtly makes a reference to his own life history too.

Pere Noel Day 05

Madame Paisley's full-body page. We've seen her before in my past pages. She's the founder and backbone of the whole troop of magicians, and is only one of the few original magicians from the golden age, right before the era ended.

Kedgeree is a real dish with Scottish origins dating back to the 18th century, usually used as a breakfast entree.

Intro to Stephane.

As stated on the page, Stephane is a big, burly man who, for reasons not yet revealed, is delusioned into thinking he's a knight. Knights, in the world of 'Jack Magic' have become replaced by a more modern French-like government centuries ago.

Pere Noel Day 03

Here we take a break from the story and show some more chemistry between the main characters.

Pere Noel Day 02

Intro of Burt, Gunthrie, and the acrobats.

Burt used to be a normal guy with dreams of becoming a magician until a mistake during practice left him with uncontrollable goat transformations. He plays the lute.

Gunthrie is a muscle man dwarf who used to work in the circus, but now serves as Paisley's right-hand man and the leader when she isn't around.

Pere Noel Day 01

First page of the Jack Magic Christmas comic. This comic takes place somewhere in the middle of the canon storyline, so a lot of characters will be seen in action for the first time, but treated like you knew them for a good while now.

I expect this to last about nine pages at the least. I was also gonna wait until I finished the whole thing to upload it, but as usual, I have on patience.

Jack Magic Halloween 2008

I did want to continue doing the tradition of a Halloween pic, since I have been having fun doing it in the past. I DIDN'T want something I seen before (yes, yes, yes, the pumpkin's stem is phallic- I get it). So here we have them all as zombies, taking off their masks. The Mystery Man in the far back still has his on- it's not that clear.

There is also Burt, who has not been introduced in the story yet, as well as Gunthrie, Madame and Yvette here. Burt's design was one of the many driving reasons why I discontinued the comic as of now, as he was REALLY HARD to pin down. Hopefully, if I continue, you'll get to see him in his normal clothes.

This also marks the first time for me using custom brushes.

Although it may not look it, these characters are actually from Jack Magic, a webcomic which I have not updated for at least a year. This piece is the first one from this series to come in many months!

The gnomes and fairies may not be the most memorable because they aren't even among the main characters! They do appear on the sidelines now and then though. If I had gotten way into the comic, the Intermission mini-comics would features these miniature characters in adventures of their own! The gnomes were inspired by the wax candles you would see at novelty items in shops. The fairies even have names: the red one's CRAG, and the orange one's Ivy.

Why a cheese race? Despite it not being the most intelligent of jokes, I find random humor to be funny. And the fact that these two races who downright hate each other would be serious about something as bizarre as carrying different kinds of European cheeses across 50 miles of land! But hey, they're pretty different than us, so they COULD have their reasons for their stange rituals.

Mystery Man

This character will appear in the coming chapters. I know I've been on-break with the updates, but I am stressed with job searching after this one ends, and I'm making all the rounds.

Dion's intentions are vague here on purpose. We'll find out more about his plans later on.
