Ms Marvel (2014) #7

Hey hey I drew that!
Ms Marvel 07 is waiting for you in your Local Comic Shop. I drew the pictures, Ian Herring brought the color, G. Willow Wilson wrote the words and Sana Amanat made it all happen.
This issue concludes my little run on Ms Marvel. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be able to work with the brilliant folks who make this book every month, and to contribute what little I can to this character so early in her career.
I love this book.
Kamala is a big deal. Her success, the book’s multiple printings, the wonderful fans that have rallied around it, all of these things tell the story of the change happening in and around comics right now. It’s such an optimistic story, and I love that I got to lend a little ink to it. Thanks to Sana for letting me be a part of this, thanks to Willow for making it SO FUN, to Ian for making me look so much better than I am. And thanks to Kamala’s fans for letting me hang out in their clubhouse for a few months. Y’all have been great company.

Q

middleschooltrackstar asked:

I loved your comic on racism, and I want to reassure you that your comment on family and raising a black child in America is completely correct. Around the time of Trayvon Martin's murder, my mother told me that when she was pregnant with me, and she learned that I was a boy she cried out of fear that racism would take me away from her, either death, jail, or any other circumstance outside of our control. I'm 19 now and I'm made it this far, but her fears weren't far off.

A

I cannot imagine. I cannot.

Your mother is amazing. You are amazing. Thank you for sharing that.

Good luck in our hard world. Lemme know if you don’t want this answer made public.

Also I blog-stalked you and looked at some of your selfies and you are ABSURDLY handsome and I think that is wonderful.

Thanks again.

I apologize if this comes off as disrespectful to Michael Brown or Trayvon Martin. Or their families. Or YOU, the reader. I’m not about that. That’s not why I drew this.
I am just really freaked out that 40% of Americans (and 47% of White Americans) do not think that the killings and violence in Ferguson ‘raise any racial issues.’ Fellow White Persons, this is our chance to learn. This is our chance to change.
When Trayvon Martin was murdered because Full Grown Men in America are frightened to violence by the presence black children, the dialogue turned very quickly into a conversation about gun control.
And gun control is an issue that deserves our attention.
But it won’t change the massive poverty in Black America. The arrest rate. The education statistics. The institutional, systemic, casual, and passive racism that plagues our country.
And it wouldn’t have saved Michael Brown.
Anyway. I’m sorry if this comes off as disrespectful or insincere or preachy. I’m sorry if my execution (or personality) gets in the way of what I’m trying to say. I am an imperfect artist, an imperfect person, and I am, undoubtedly, blinded to a million things by my own glaring whiteness. So this might be… Lord, this might be awful. I’m so sorry if it’s awful. Really.
But. I just keep thinking… Look, my wife is pregnant with our first child. A boy. We’re nervous, we’re excited, we’re SO ANXIOUS because what the hell do you do with babies? WE don’t know. But if we were a black family… in this country… we would be so terrified. Because we live in a nation that murders the children of black parents, puts it on the news WITH RIOTS AND TEAR GAS as decoration, and still half of us don’t even see it as a problem. Can you imagine that? Can you imagine bringing a child into that reality, to face the odds we lay out for black kids?
That would break me. I’ve never known anything like that. No one should ever know anything like that.
So let’s talk to our friends about race. Lets talk to our families. And when actual victims of racism try to tell us what’s going on in, say, a peaceful community protest as they are being gassed and shot at by cops WE SHOULD LISTEN TO AND BELIEVE THEM. Let’s talk to each other about this until we are all on the same page.
And then let’s turn the damn page. I apologize if this comes off as disrespectful to Michael Brown or Trayvon Martin. Or their families. Or YOU, the reader. I’m not about that. That’s not why I drew this.

Working the night shift, warmed up with some concept work for a little comic I’d like to make.

I wrote the outline last night.

I’m gonna bug my editor about it on Monday.

I think this should happen.

Instagram roundup of the stuff I drew at SDCC. I did not get to see all my friends, which was a bummer, but it was nice to see the friends I did. Maybe next year we’ll manage to get a booth and make life easier for e’rrbody.
Speaking of, would y’all be interested in seeing some fanart/write-ups of of my favorite comics from SDCC? I got my hands on some incredible work that I’m really excited about.

rdmsht asked:

Yoooo Jake. Is there any place where can we buy the things you did for Marvel ? Thanks in advance !

A

Yes! You can buy a print copy of Ms Marvel 06 at your local comic shop, or a digital copy online at comixology.com. And if you search ‘Jake Wyatt’ on comixology you’ll scare up most of what I’ve drawn for monthly publishers.


Ms Marvel #6


I love that this is a real comic and that I got to draw it. And I love that tumblr has uploaded THE ENTIRE ISSUE as photosets. But mostly I love drawing grumpy li’l Wolverines.

I just finished one of these Where’s-Waldo-style splash pages for Ms Marvel #7, and decided I’d post this older one to celebrate. It’s from the Indestructible Hulk Special Issue #1. 2013. Colors by the ever-vibrant Jordie Bellaire and drawing by Me.

Pages like this are fun, but they do take a HATEFUL amount of time to draw.

CBR has dropped a preview for my first Ms Marvel issue where you can see these very pages (and more) enhanced by the chromatic stylings of Mr. Ian Herring and the mad verbage of O.G. Williow Wilson.
But I thought I’d post the naked inks here ‘cause I like ‘em. CBR has dropped a preview for my first Ms Marvel issue where you can see these very pages (and more) enhanced by the chromatic stylings of Mr. Ian Herring and the mad verbage of O.G. Williow Wilson.

One day I will post my own art to this tumblr. IN THE MEAN TIME this is by Stephanie Gonzaga, who is an incredible artist and a real-life friend. She is also responsible for what I believe to be the greatest drawing of Marceline in the known universe.

Instagram roundup of my favorite commissions from Heroescon.
The con was EXHAUSTING but I’m already sad that it’s over. Drawing cool requests at a table while people say nice things to you and hand you money is WAY MORE FUN than real work. Plus I got to sit next to Kris, Kevin, and Babs all day, and they are basically the greatest people to be found on this little world. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us! I plan on hitting WAY more shows next year.

josh-mac asked:

Jake, hey what's up? I talked to you for a little while at Heroescon a couple days ago. I'm really glad I came across your work, though I'd seen a little of it before, like that Primeape drawing, my favorite Pokemon, so dope. These Ms. Marvel preview panels you've put up look fantastic though; it's exciting to see someone awesome jump on an already great book. You mentioned doing some other Marvel stuff though. What issues are those? Imma try to track 'em down. Looking forward to Necropolis!

A

Hey thanks! In addition to Ms Marvel I’m doing a Spider-Man inspired one-shot with Gerard Way. It’s an alternate-reality reimagining of Spider-Man but with a spider girl and a mech and all kinds of rad rad radness. You can read what Gerard and I have to say about it HERE. I’ll post some of the development art for it when the cover drops.

And then it’s all Necropolis all the time for me. No more cheating on my personal projects with Marvel.
