Meet Jing Dizon: Illustrator for The Black Mau Chronicles and I.G.L.E.A.^RE by EL Harvey

Jing Dizon agreed to take on the challenge of working with Tiger Taj Sonchai about a year ago. She was a fan of Taj’s music client Desert Dream Records recording artist LiTaL. Taj was a fan of Jing’s art. The correspondence turned into a working relationship. Together via the computer the two developed the visual likenesses for the characters of  “The Black Mau Chronicles” and “I.G.L.E.A.^RE”. 

So, we’d like for you to meet the woman who gave the Black Mau his face.  Who is this woman Jing Dizon?

I’m a self taught artist and a God fearing woman, though I don’t consider myself a professional illustrator, or artist for that matter yet. I’m still a work in progress. Ever since I was a child, I never dreamed of anything but being an artist.

In my heart I want to share my talent with the world and use my talent to glorify God.  God has given me the seed and it has blossomed. I want to take it to the next level.

I have always been passionate about the arts and entertainment. I like being behind the scenes. I’m not a people pleaser. I believe that in order for you to create things and make things happen from a creative perspective you have to have influence and the respect of the people you work with. I know how to take sound advice and follow the lead when necessary. But when I know what I know, I take the ball and run with it. I think that’s what Taj likes about me. He has ideas awesome, even some of them brilliant. I help make those ideas pop! We are a team. 

I’m from Manila, Philippines, born and raised and I’ve been drawing since I was seven years old. Back then it was a hobby that I enjoyed. It was an on again off again thing. Even now I don’t have a lot of time to draw, but I steal my moments to do it.

I met Taj through Talent House. Taj is better known from the music business endeavors. But It was actually LiTaL, his client through Talent House, who brought us together. She liked my work and she said that her manager was a science fiction writer and he was looking for an illustrator. Now the rest is history and here we are.

The Black Mau project is very challenging for me. I’m not a comic illustrator really, but I’m up for the challenge. Most of my work will be in the comic book I.G.L.E.A.^RE.  I believe I’ll have a few Illustrations in the novel, but It’s just another facet of art for my arsenal. I don’t want to limit myself, thus I am a work in progress. Taj told me once that what makes me unique is that there is only one me. Be the best me I can be. I love him like a  big brother!

The Black Mau and I.G.L.E.A.^RE is very unique science fiction and will appeal to sci~fi and comic book fanatics everywhere! I want to go to Comicon!

I think opportunities are growing for people in the arts in the Philippines, but like anywhere else you have to be tenacious. 

I’m trying to master what I call “Semi~Realism”. I don’t know what else to call it. But I want to master it. Maybe I can use it in the comics? I’d like to work with other comic writers I think it would be a great opportunity and fun.

I’m answering questions from a list of questions El Harvey sent to me. This final one asks if I’m married? No, not yet but I hope to be one day. If This certain guy I know would ask…Who knows?

Thank you for letting me take a little of your time. -Jing

The covert identity of Paladin McCaine.
The suit is a nano-technical symbiotic computer that becomes part of Paladin McCaine like a second skin. The suit is made of a tevlarainumnanoepidurem compound only compatible with Paladin’s blood type.
He more often than not wears a trench styled coat in battle that he calls his “Coat of Arms”. Like a utility belt, except he is able to dimensionally compress weaponry within his coat. The coat is made of spun tevlarainum.

The Black Mau Story begins December 12, 2012 at midnight. The first installment is entitled : “New World Order”.

The comic book  I.G.L.E.A.^RE is coming with illustrations. I will try to add Illustrations for the novel, but it is a process. You guys will just have to use your vivid Sci~Fi imaginations.

A Diary Page from The Black Mau Chronicles: New World Order Coming 12-12-12

 The Viscera battle seemed            endless in San Francisco. I hear it’s just as bad or worse in other parts of the country, the world for that matter. The Pack even had to blow the Golden Gate Bridge to help control the Viscera infestation, keep them across the bay. But they have boats and air vehicles. Between the military and guerrilla groups like ours “The Pack of Wolves”, commonly referred to as “The Pack”, we keep them under control, so far.
We are down to Ham Radio communication. There are no broadcasts anymore, no television or radio. But people still tried to maintain and hold on to as much of whatever normal is as possible. Even though one dead Viscera brought two more it seems. The dead walkers would bite someone or scratch someone and they’d become Viscera. The good thing is we are clearing out the dead walkers in the city or as Sarang calls them, Spliftan Nanites. We just call them all V Heads. We just have the Viscera for the most part now. There is a big difference between the Dead Walkers and what we now classify as V Heads. We figured out that the Dead Walkers were basically designed to breed by bitting humans or the scratch. The nanites get in the blood stream and you become one, if you aren’t eaten. And from my experience are as dumb as dirt. But they are the catalyst for something worse. The second generation V heads were born to kill. They’re smart and they are resourceful. They’re like fighting vampires or zombies with intellect. They feed on the warm flesh of humans. Their thing is the appetite for human intestines. I don’t know why that is, that particular part of the body. But they seem to wash that down with spinal fluid and treat our blood like it’s gravy.
They have their clans. The biggest clan in the city was lead by a man named Mokatari, Doctor Jiles Mokatari Ph.d. He was a college professor from Africa, Ghana I think. He taught at the University of San Francisco. Mokatari is a very smart and industrious V head. He has them organized. That’s why he has the biggest clan. Mokatari is King. (From the diary of Dr. Roi Sungari,MD)
