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.
Yet another picture drawn on the long car ride, from a scene from "Fjern's Folly" that I'd written a few days earlier. Soldier Perry brings dragon beedoo! to a halt in a most unconventional manner. Jessie was not pleased with the result, especially when it comes to the placement of feet and chin. Picture by Jessie.
Jessie seems to be convinced that we (Kessalia and I) too, can draw. Kessalia maybe, but not me! Undetered, she drew Polly's head and made us copy it. Mine's on the right, Kessalia's on the left. Picture by Jessie, Kessalia and Arno.
This is a bit silly to include, but Jessie send me a phone card to use to call my mother while I was in America. To indicate it was mine, this was drawn on the piece of paper wrapped around it. Thanks Jessie! :) Picture by Jessie.
This christmas card was sent to me in 1999. Even back then I was teasing Jessie's anthro-wolf character over and over again with doggy jokes. This one was inspired by a Lassie reference. Took me a long time to get it scanned, but here it is... Picture by Jessie.
A dramatised representation of events that took place during my stay in the USA. Let us have lunch, we spoke, driving through the mountains. Let us not use that table in the full blaze of the sun, but let us sit in that shadowy patch of grass, we decided. Let us evacuate from this thick cloud of gnats was the next thing we collectively thought. We ate in the car. Picture by Jessie.
Sitting at work, bored, Jessie had only a red pen, a black pen and a yellow post-it note. From it she created something amazing. I love that expression on Armageddon's face too. Picture by Jessie.
A picture of an RP that took place in the Station 8 Gargoyles Chatroom. MAui got turned into something rather quaint and scary. Beedoo! is looking on, as am I, with a little Jessie hiding in my manes. In the back, Robert is swinging from a rope, coming to MAui's rescue, the poor sob. Picture by Jessie
On this picture I have absolutely no comment... Well, okay, so I was in a bit of a strange mood. Picture by Jessie.
This is actually a sketch for a picture Jessie never finished. It is a mechanical bug from the story 'Fjern's Folly'. The original picture was to be of captain DeLancy and Beedoo! surrounded by them, but, well, she never drew in the bugs. Perhaps I should pester her into finishing it. The above picture is the result of my description combined with an earlier sketch, the below is how she originally envisioned it herself. Picture by Jessie.
A more or less requested picture by Jessie. Jessie, Dubble, Beedoo! and Arno in dragon form taking advantage of Halloween to, for once, fit in with ordinary people. No one will ever know those are not costumes. With a guest appearence by Shee the sheep. Picture by Jessie.
A strange thought that came up in a conversation with Kessalia, regarding characters from my stories. What if Venn was to do community service work as secretary for the Arcadian Army Ward Division? Of course, she could only work at night, when Perry runs the place... Picture by Jessie.
Jessie 'surprised' me (thought not very well. ;) ) with this great drawing of the wyvern, a character from a story I intend to write once I finish the current one. Given the lack of actual information she was burdoned with, she came pretty close and, again, changed the images in my head significantly. My only real gripe involves the wings, which should be intact. Picture by Jessie.
From 'Fjern's folly', DeLancy telling Venn in no uncertain terms to sit down!. Picture by Jessie
I actually forgot to include this one last time. So here it is. Perry and Kessalia, having a conversation about the good captain DeLancy, a scene from 'Fjern's Folly'. Picture by Jessie.
In real life, Jessie has something against drawing things that are, in one way or another, disgusting. In the Arcadia Clan, Jessie works under captain DeLancy as the sketch artist of the Arcadian Army, Ward Division. The picture speaks for itself. Picture by Jessie.
Armageddon braves the elements and a sea creatures to save his friends. The only picture with Fjern, Bludge, Grey, Armageddon and Trill in it, though they might be a tad difficult to spot. This picture was only finished cause I whined and pleaded, as Jessie feels that water is not her strong point. Picture by Jessie.
Bex the griffin, Jessie's character, has his first run-in with Polly, the noble dragon. Drawn when the artist should have been paying attention to class, as evidenced by the surrounding notes. Picture by Jessie.
No, really, I am normal! Picture by Jessie.
A picture of Armageddon looking as bored as the artist was in the class where she drew it. Poor Armageddon. Poor Jessie. Picture by Jessie.
A curious addition, this. Eden, who has a thing with ankles, requested this picture of Jessie through me. Jessie then drew it and gave it to me to pass on to Eden, who then told me to tell her she loved it. I imagine it is a replacement for the lost photograph of her hugging my ankles at the Gathering. Picture by Jessie.
Jessie started on this rather a while ago, for the hollidays. Keebler, Jessie, Nooit, Kessalia, Arno, Jason, Dubble and Beedoo!, pulled by Polly and another dragon. Notice how she placed herself between Keebler and Nooit. Picture by Jessie.
A depiction of the single-scene story 'Finals Fantasy' (see Story section) that I wrote for Jessie during her finals. Picture by Jessie, all comments superfluous by default.
A picture of Nooit, because Jessie "hadn't drawn him for a while". What is he pointing at? Doesn't he know that's rude? Picture by Jessie.
A picture of a scene in no story of mine, but envisioned by Jessie to be somewhere in the future. Jessie and Venn working for DeLancy. Venn: "No no no. Add a mustache... a few scars... Missing teeth... There, NOW it looks like DeLancy..." Picture by Jessie.
When Jessie left the chatroom I had been given a pair of elephants ears and a trunk. She very quickly drew this eledragon on the computer. Of course, by the time she returned it was lacking the green hair and pink skin with yellow dots... Picture by Jessie
Something of a requested picture. Two sketches, each of which took 2-3 minutes, of rabids: creatures from the short story "The Greatest Hero" which I am working on at the time of writing. Who knew Jessie could draw frightening things so well? Picture by Jessie.
A picture from a scene of the story "The Greatest Hero", featuring Jessie looking cool. Who do you think is winning? Piucture by Jessie.
A requested picture, as a sort of cover picture for the Station 8 based story The Greatest Hero. I did not specify what it should look like, but look at me hide behind the women. Looks good to me. Picture by Jessie.
During a particularly boring class, presumably one involving large numbers, Jessie made an attempt to design Argor, the dragon from my Station 8ish story "The Greatest Hero". As these things go, it didn't look like I imagined him at all, but it's so cool that as far as I'm concerned, that's what he looks like now. I love the fin. Picture by Jessie.
In her desire to show me doing something mean and destroy a reputation intricately built over the years, Jessie drew a cool and even coloured picture of a scene from "The Greatest Hero". Dragon Arno and Argor about to fight mid-air. Picture by Jessie.
For my birthday I received from Jessie one of the funniest birthday cards I received in my entire life. This was not only due to the card itself, which was very funny in itself, but also because of the picture she had added on the inside. How could I not show it around? Picture by Jessie.
