These are all the pictures Jessie has drawn in which I am directly or indirectly involved. That is, they are of me, of a character of mine, or for me. This is definately not all she has drawn, however, this is the definition I will go by. The vast majority of the pictures that I have come from her and this is by far the largest section aside from the main gallery.
Jessie is the secret identity of one Angie McClelland, a mild mannered animation student at CCAD in Columbus, Ohio. At the time of writing (August 13th 2000) she is 19. Like many other artists in the generally talented Gargoyles fandom, where I met her, she hopes to work for Disney some day. For now, she has an online comic, Dakota's Ridge, and it really wouldn't hurt to check it out.
the only explanation I got with this one is "I tried a different style". Look everyone, it's the Toon Gang! And we're appearently rather befuddled by the whole thing ourselves. Picture by Jessie.
A picture by Jessie which she either forgot to show me, or which I forgot I saw. A scene from an Arcadia-related story she never managed to finish. Jason's sad in this picture. The poor thing. Picture by Jessie.
While Jessie is the brain and talent behind the online comic Dakota's Ridge, it is not the first comic she ever made. Neither is this one, but it does preceed Dakota's Ridge. It's been around for a while now, I just didn't remember it until recently. Keebler and Jessie, the wolf and sheep who are friends. Comic by Jessie.
Beedoo! the dragon (yes, the exclamation mark is part of her name) liked my bathrobe rather a lot. One would think she'd have shame, but... Ah well... Picture by Jessie.
When Jessie had nothing to do at work (don't we all envy her?) she spent her time drawing several pictures. This is one of them, a picture from "Fjern's Folly", which I am, at the time of writing, er... Writing. Perry and Venn, Jessie says "she's looking sad because Perry's going away." Awwww... Picture by Jessie.
This is the first part of a christmas gift to me from Jessie. It is a 'book cover' for the story "Nooit" that I wrote. I have the originals right here at home and, needless to say, I am very pleased with them. Unfortunately the scan if of a rather poor quality. Picture by Jessie.
the second part of Jessie's christmas gift to me. A 'book cover' for the story "Demon's Eye" that I wrote. Again, a poor scan, but hopefully with some imagination you can tell the quality. Picture by Jessie.
If I told you I fully understood what this picture was about I would. As it is, what could I say!? Picture by Jessie.
Another picture from "Fjern's Folly". Bludge and Fjern having a moment. she drew this picture in a 'game' with Kessalia, where they'd tell each other what to draw. So technically speaking this picture is for Kessalia. But those are my characters, so Nyah! Picture by Jessie.
On my request, which she makes me do now, Jessie made a first attempt at drawing Armageddon, the dragon from "Fjern's Folly". I wasn't quite satisfied with some details, and I think she wasn't quite either, but still, if I could draw that, I'd be very pleased indeed. Picture by Jessie.
Jessie's second attempt at Armageddon, and one that satisfied me a lot more on the details. Of course, we all know she probably likes Trill a lot better. See below. Picture by Jessie.
Trill is a little creature from "Fjern's Folly", one which at the time of writing this still has to enter into the story. I originally came up with her as a possible mate for Nooit, but decided against that when I started writing Nooit's story. She is hyperactive, effuse, happy and wild, and she would, as her original version, drag Nooit all over the place wether he liked it or not. She pretty much matches the description that I gave. The tail is added by Jessie, to successfully convince me that Trill needs a tail. Picture by Jessie.
Jessie was there when Bremusa first spotted her picture of Trill, and witnessed the frothing and snarling firsthand. She drew her own version of Bremusa vs. Trill. Picture by Jessie.
Jessie is writing a storyin which it seems nearly everyone is turned into a kid. It's the the Arcadia clan kids! Kessalia, Arno, Jessie, Jason, DeLancy and a very rude Keebler. Picture by Jessie.
Jessie, who has her own online comic, sketched an actual page of a nonexistant comic of The Wolf and the Sheep. Jason is a tad upset, Perry is trying to calm him down. Picture by Jessie.
Part of the birthday card Jessie sent me, presumably to fill up some empty space. It's a very confused dragon-Arno. I guess I was taken by surprise when they took my picture, huh? Picture by Jessie.
Jessie is rightfully proud of this one. Perry and DeLancy being official in their dress uniforms. DeLancy looks particularly DeLancy-like. Picture by Jessie.
Just in at the nick of time for an update, a picture from a scene of "Fjern's Folly". Bjorn and Beedoo! are getting along swimmingly, in full colour even. Interestingly, neither of these characters are mine, but since I asked for this, it ends up here anyway. Mine! Picture by Jessie.
This one requires some explanation. Jessie's character currently pretty much exists in two seperate story-universes. One is the original Jessie, wife of the gargoyle Malibu. The other is Jessie, girlfriend of anthro-wolf Jason. In the Arcadia universe she wrote a 'future' story in which she and Jason had two children, a story that was never finished. This very rough sketch is her final reply to us teasing Malibu'S Jessie about having children with another guy. Get it now? Picture by Jessie.
Jessie wanted to redesign Armageddon, making him look more massive. She also tried giving him some new feet. This is the final result of her efforts. What do you think? Picture by Jessie.
A most valiant attempt by Jessie to fit both the enormous Armageddon and the little Trill, both from "Fjern's Folly", into one single picture. Maybe I should have made Arma smaller, or Trill bigger. ;) Picture by Jessie, who says Armageddon's eyes are too big.
Jessie was bored and sketched this on a little memo, hence the yellow colour. Just a little joke. Picture by Jessie.
Consider this a commissioned pic: Jessie pleaded me to give her something to draw, as she was bored. Given her passionate dislike of Grey, and her love for Trill, both from "Fjern's Folly", I figured she'd like the request "Trill hurting Grey". The pleasure truly shows. Picture by Jessie.
Jessie made me request this! Jessie made me do it! She was bored in class and sketched an unfinished version of this picture of Trill and Armageddon, then changed Armageddon's design. To ever see the finished version, I had to ask for it. Can you believe it? ;)
What's actually more unbelievable is that she managed to fit the two in the same picture. Quite a feat. Picture by Jessie.
The idea for this picture suddenly hit me, a few weeks before the Gathering 2001, for which I will go/went to America, depending on when you read this. I asked Jessie to draw it, as I naturally failed horribly. Picture by Jessie.
A picture on which Jessie worked extra hard on the shading. I have seen the original and the scan does not do it justice. This is me in dragon form enjoying a quiet nap with my beloved pet sheep Shee. He seems a bit uncomfortable though, the poor thing. Shee must not be feeling very well. Picture by Jessie.
A finished version of an earlier picture with just Jessie in it. While Jessie the artist likes DeLancy, Jessie the anthro-wolf seems less pleased to be saluting before him. Picture by Jessie.
Apparently, this idea just hit Jessie, and she drew it before we came to visit her in person. Shee is the sheep I keep as a very anxious and nervous pet in chat (can't imagine why). Keebler is from my Arcadia Clan related stories. Lastly, it seems to be inspired by the following quote from "The Wolf and the Sheep":
"If you insist I could speak with a number of sheep..." he raises his hooves to draw imaginary quote-marks in the air as he says the word 'speak', "however, you must understand, sheep language consists of little more than concepts such as 'food', 'not food', 'angry' or 'scary thing'."
I think the result is pretty funny. Picture by Jessie.
When we visited Jessie, she invited me to play a racing game with her on her Playstation. Just looking at the picture, can you tell who was winning? This was drawn during a long, long car ride. Picture by Jessie.
This picture, too, was drawn during the forementioned long car ride, on a bumpy road no less. It pictures Jessie's general attitude towards my attempts to crack as many dog jokes as I could. Picture by Jessie.
NOTE: No, she did not really hit me with a water bottle.
