Dalziel is an ally if the Black Mau and Bast. Dalziel has telekinetic powers much like Jean Gray of the X-Men, but Dalziel can also manipulate the molecules in her body to shape shift. Dalziel is one force to be reckoned with.

You’ll meet her along with the other characters in the Black Mau Chronicles 12.12.12. Stay tuned! Dalziel the Mystique is illustrated by the lovely Jing Dizon.

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

4:31am The Black Mau Finally Has A Face

4:31 am The shadowy figure known as the Black Mau in my world of Sci~Fi has eluded me for the past six years. I’ve only seen quick glimpses of him. He has always been in the dark until now.

I tried to sketch him, but he always came out reminding me of someone else or was never quite right. I started a sketch some months ago and his shadow appeared and it felt good. I looked at it and I said to myself “I know you’re there…I see you.” He just wouldn’t come into the light. That was about four months ago. Mau woke me up this moring and said to draw and then he came out of the darkness and said “Here I am. Now tell my story!”   This whole thing is a work in progress but I will deliver!

Being that this Black Mau story is such an indepth and elaborate story, my editor strongly suggested that “The Black Mau Chronicles: Origins of the Black Mau will be published first. I’m stoked and very happy that we’ve decided how this would be done.

The entire Origins story will be published here first for a limited time on 12.12.12. at midnight. More info is coming. Stay tuned!

Locati Ohlum….

This is the Mauist greeting. This is what is going on

with the Black Mau Chronicles and I.G.L.E.A.^R.E.

The entire series will be posted on this blog for

your entertainment pleasure complete with

illustrations.

People have been telling me that they have

been waiting too long. I just wanted to get it

right before I made it public. The series will

begin 12.12.12.

There will be previews, contest and prizes given

throughout the year until the premier of

The Black Mau Chronicles and I.G.L.E.A.^R.E.

These are two different series but some of the

characters will  make guest appearances or be

regulars in both series eventually. With the BMC

We will start from the very beginning and evolve

Into what new life will be like on the new planet

called “Rare Earth”. As one of the characters

Wilemeana Bast said… “To understand who they

are in the modern age, you must first understand

from where they came.”

Stay Tuned!

Locati Ohlum!
