Contest Winner - Giratina Origin Forme (Umbraevus) by BonnyJohn
Contest Winner - Giratina Origin Forme (Umbraevus)
Hey all! I put up a status over here for saying thanks for 1,000 watchers announcing a little contest and it's come and gone!  The lucky winner chosen at random was Umbraevus, whose favorite Pokemon is Giratina Origin forme, so here's the illustration!

Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for everyone's kind comments and entering the contest!  Maybe I oughta do these things more often, like once a month!  We'll see!

Also, I have TONS of art to post so be on the lookout.  Then again, I don't use DA as much and more stuff go to Tumblr and my own site so check those out when you get the time!


Hope you're all doing well!

To celebrate, I'll draw a Pokemon of the winner's choosing.  How do you become the winner?  Simply reply to this status and let me know who's your favorite Pokemon and I'll randomly select a winner at 12 noon this Saturday, January 30th.  I'll work on the piece over the weekend and deliver Monday!  

Also, if you'd like, spread the love to other people who you think might be interested in my work.  That way, maybe I'll hit 2,000 subscribers in another 8 years lol 

Thanks again for watching! 
Oh snap, I only just realized I've reached over 1,000 watchers.  Thanks so much!

Tactical Royale With Cheese Action
Here's a shirt design I did featuring Metal Gear Solid and Pulp Fiction!  It's the first design I've made available for sale in any form or fashion and you can find it at my RedBubble store!…

I plan on releasing more to the store...hopefully one new design a week so stay tuned.  I'll probably also find ways to make previous works like from the One a Day series available as well.  Sorry I've been a bit quiet with releasing stuff...Trying my best to change that.

Hope you're all well!

Pupitar!  Pokemon One a Day, Series 2! by BonnyJohn
Pupitar! Pokemon One a Day, Series 2!
Day 96

Hard Shell Pokemon

Reblog on Tumblr here:…

It begins...The final week of One a Day, Series 2!  I cannot believe it!  I'm going to do my best to finish this following set of illustrations with justice the Pokemon that inspire them.  Starting off the final 5 is Pupitar, who is halfway to becoming the pseudo legendary terror known as Tyranitar!  For his illustration, I wanted to play up a visual push that tells the story of all Pokemon who go through evolution.  

Love and peace,


I want to say that I will put my best foot forward and attempt to not miss a day, but I want this series to be less stressful so if I take a day off or two or whatever, don’t freak out.  I’m going to be actively seeking out jobs and putting myself and my work out there in hopes to get noticed of course, so if there are new breakthroughs in my day to day, those would take precedence.  

​That said, I will of course give it my all for each illustration in terms of quality.  I will again attempt to draw each new illustration in different art styles, and there will be plenty of new direction for exploration yet I can safely say that many styles of the already 152 illustrations I’ve done so far will probably come into play in new ways as well.  I can already see myself remixing popular styles for newer works.  

Rather than aspiring for 1 new style per day, (which of course I will attempt) I just want to make sure each new illustration is a fun and/or unique new depiction of everyone’s favorite pocket monsters. 

I also have a plea.  I’m so grateful for my following to have grown with each new illustration released in series 1.  What I’m doing is continually putting myself out there in the hopes that someone who can make moves can find my work and my passion and validate all it is I do.  I need you guys to help me with furthering my reach with this coming series and spread the work.  Reblog and share and help this become a success like you did the first time around…Except we can do better!  I know it!

​So that’s it, I think.  This upcoming series can be considered as both a standalone and expansion to the original.
