Story on this Gecko, Man

May 8, 2017 at 08:51AM

One of my early comic book character creations of approximately 25 to 27 years, during my second attempt at first grade when I moved to another elementary school and second grade through third grade, is Gecko Man. I drew Gecko Man then as a reflection of who I was as a child though in an adult body with a cape with superhero strength and capabilities like laser shooting powers from my hands with a superhero body spandex suit. Kind of like Spider-Man, Ice Man, Superman, and Batman. This Gecko Man character came to me when I put my hand on a pole and I felt warmth. I thought to myself, hmm, this doesn't feel hard like what a metal pole would feel like. Instead it felt soft and warm. So I looked under my hand was a gecko chilling on the pole even though I touched it. The gecko nor I were startled to my surprise, and I felt an immediate bond with this gecko. From there I felt like I had superpowers. I thought to myself then if I am to be an original superhero character, it would have to be Gecko Man. Geckos are known to make sounds, and I am also known to make sounds. I also associate geckos with positive thoughts and geckos are cool in my book. Then it hit me since last year, what if I am to revisit my Gecko Man character and have him be brought to life in this modern era as a reflection of who I am today as a musician, beatboxer and public speaker. Yes, Gecko Man, a music, public speaking and beatboxing mascot. So, though I am rusty with my doodling and drawing skills, I managed to sketch and doodle out roughly how Gecko Man could look today so that I could then have a better idea visually of this gecko character and then relay that over to the artist and muralist East-3 of Keep It Flowing Media, and I commissioned him with the great task to bring this gecko character to life.

Prior to this Gecko Man project that I am currently working on... I commissioned East-3 for the Jason Tom personal name logo as shown above. East-3 have also worked with clients Adidas, GQ Magazine, Kid Robot, Common and Echelon Clothing, DJ QBert and Thud Rumble, Illest, FatLace.com, Freelance Brand, Crazy Legs, Rock Steady CrewMighty4 Arts Foundation, Diverse Art Center, and many more.

That is such a neat story and cool creation to use from it! I believe Jason Tom becomes more and more creative because he has an audience to speak to. Keep expressing JT! We're absorbing you!!

I am glad you are putting your dreams into reality! The only way to progress is to always push forward. Every step will lead you to your destination. I am wondering what your plans are for this logo? Honest opinion, visually, the color of him is a little washed out. Depending on how you brand this and use it, people may not understand what this is, but is an amazing vector and captures your personality and essence. I can't wait to see where this takes you!

I really like the concept and the drawing! Really moves the reader

Cool story bro.

This is pretty dope! And cute story

It's an awesome drawing.

Awesome J! Thx for sharing, really dig Gecko Man! Cool to hear about your personal experiences and how they influence your art. Keep it up man, you're rocking it!

As much as I hate Geckos this is super duper cool!!

Awesome bro! I think the story behind it seals the deal. Keep up the good work and keep doing you!

Super cute! I love this!

Jason Tom is an outgoing guy who is not afraid to make new friends. He is a passionate guy who loves to share life with others through his music & faith. It's been really nice getting to know Jason & all the dope places God is taking him!

To me Jason Tom is a very talented young man that's on a mission from God to not only entertain but to touch the heart and spirit of every single person in his path. He understands that life doesn't always turn out the way we want or expect it to be but that with God all things are possible. He truly cares about people and is filled with the love of God and that is why I feel he does what he does. That to me is who Jason Tom is.

#latepost Post prayer night of prayer week with brothers Kyoshi, Nathan and John Lum at Word of Life.
Thank you Pastor Wally Matanza for pouring onto the men you've led and are mentoring, including me, today. Thank you for not ever giving up your faith in me and for exhortation. I pray for supernatural protection, provision and traveling mercies as you, Patti and Isaiah reach nations. I recall when I first arrived at Word of Life and how one of the leaders you've mentored consolidated me. I will not forget how Jarmal impacted my life and my early walk with God as a baby Christian. He eventually got married and moved to the mainland. Then 2016 was when God called me back to your team. And from 2016 through 2017 the Holy Spirit counseled me to remain faithful to the leadership of John Lum. The Holy Spirit then counseled me on what I needed to do when I acknowledged Him in all of my ways and Father God ordered my steps. Then I got called to step up this season as one of your 12 and one of Word of Life's 144 Life Group leaders, an irrevocable call. As a man of God, it is an honor to serve among our team of mighty men of valor Rick, Paul, Shawn, John, Jordan, Mario, Sonny, Laneke, Michael, Nathan, Jason C., and Louis. I miss you Darius! This year 2018 is a year of new beginnings. Thank you Jesus for your glory, kindness, goodness, presence, and power!
Congratulations to Maryknoll basketball point guard Rhianne. Awesome victory at the Maryknoll Senior Game with the Punahou Buff 'N Blue! Joined here with my Life Group brother Nathan.
Great game! Maryknoll Spartan Basketball Senior Game versus Punahou Buff 'N Blue. Congratulations to the Maryknoll Spartan Basketball Seniors! Watched this game with senior athletes Taylor, Ciera, Kayla, and company. Big up to my Life Group brother Nathan for the invite.
Spoke at Waipahu High School's Career Day! Thank you Marauders!
#latepost Happiest birthday celebration! Thank you Gale and Travis! Both of you have been important friends in my life. Travis, I can't wait 'til you come back from you trip so we can fellowship and build.
