New.It's been a year since I took everything down and left the DeviantArt community. I've gone through many changes since, both artistically and personally. Two big examples are the birth of our fourth child and the opening of my new studio/transition to gallery work and departure (not entirely) from illustration. I decided that given all these changes, there was no harm in posting my new work to the site.So, I'm back.
All things must end.It's come time to leave deviantart as an artist. I will keep my account so that I may browse others' art, but will no longer be submitting my own. There are too many other ways to showcase it that don't involve so much nonsense, and most importantly, awful terms of service.It's been real.Jonathan
More FOOTPRINTS!Hi everyone! I know I don't write journals here often, but I wanted to ask for your help. About 3 years ago My friend/collaborator Joey Esposito and I kickstarter our comic Footprints. It was released to much acclaim and attention, all the way up to a feature in USAToday. We've teamed up again for a one-shot follow up, and need money for printing and design. We have some great rewards such as signed copies of the comic, digital downloads of the previous volume and script pages, a T-shirt, prints, original art from me (both sketches and original pages from Volume 1) and the chance to appear on Joey's podcast "Assemble After Dark" and even the chance to be drawn into the book.We'd love your help, either by pledging or sharing this on Deviantart and/or other social media! Thanks!View the campaign here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/775602645/footprints-bad-luck-charm?ref=discoveryFind me on twitter: twitter.com/jonmooreart and Joey too: twitter.com/joeyesposito
What do we say to the god of death?I'm typing this journal from my hospital bed. Late Friday night I went to our nearby hospital and it was determined I had a heart attack. I was airlifted downtown and taken to the cath lab, where they discovered a 99% blockage of my LAD. If you're not up on cardiologic parlance, that's bad, bad news. I feel safe saying that very many folks with such a severely occluded LAD die. It's the primary coronary artery supplying the left ventricle, which pumps oxygenated blood throughout your body.I have a stent in place now and I feel normal. I'm an unusual sight on this floor: a 30-year-old strolling around easily. More than one staff member has commented that they can't believe I'm a patient. Lots of changes to come. It's even quite possible that I'll be completely normal again."Not today."
Working!Sorry I haven't had a lot of art to post lately. Everything I'm doing is under NDA. As soon as I can either show what I'm doing (probably several months) or work on something else, I'll post it up for you guys!jmo

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.http://www.scottgames.com/akaI was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality. Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th
