He grew to be the biggest in his family, and probably the biggest quail he's ever met himself. Innocent and somewhat naive, Quincy is a huge kid at heart, always curious and stricken with wonder. He is also a great runner, and while not the fastest, he paces himself to go far with the help of his trusty sneakers. Quincy is musical too, and can be heard whistling from outside his home in the woods. Quincy Quail is the nicest friend anyone could ever have. He is friendly to everyone, always doing good deeds and following the "golden rule". Quincy was so beloved at Quail Run that the school was practically named after him. Aside from his modest heroics and pride for Quail Run, he is also a hilariously animated entertainer, being and having as much fun as he can. Quincy Quail's nemesis is "The HAWK", or Randall's alter ego. He finds himself having to stop The HAWK's frustrating misbehavior and teach him lessons, annoyed when Randall's bird-like actions get mistaken for his own. Quincy doesn't usually talk and often "forgets how to", but when he does, it's usually surprisingly deep words of wisdom. He can fly a little bit, but is still learning and getting used to it. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=192517936 192517936 Quail Run Elementary School Quincy Quail Logo Quincy Quail in the logo of Quail Run Elementary School in Lawrence, KS. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=192517935 192517935 Quincy Quail Running A digital painting of Quincy Quail running.

C Jay is famous for kicking opponents with his crimson shoes ... all while wearing a smile on his face. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=192979010 192979010 KU Big Jay & Baby Jay - University of Kansas Jayhawk Mascots (Hal Sandy, 1946/2005) Big Jay, an orphan from the magical land of the Kaw, is the big man (bird) on campus.

Baby Jay, also an orphan from the magical land of the Kaw, is a three-year-old Jayhawk. She is sweet, mischievous and always into everything, just like any other three-year-old.

They are morons who indulge in all forms of debauchery. Aside from partying, they also enjoy being fair-weather sports fans. Critical of any values that counter their herd mentality, Pat and Joe are also hypocrites, secretly terrified of individuality. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199590047 199590047 Buzz Buncan "I-I-I'm tellin' on youuu!" Buzz Buncan is Sally's neighbor; a stuttering tattletale who keeps his real name and age a secret for some reason. He's ridiculously insecure, maintaining the most masculine buzz cut his grandma can fashion. Along with getting other people into trouble, Buzz also enjoys lying and any form of attention. His sketchy family situation forces him to constantly move around back and forth, commonly attending South Rose in Laurel Illinois while not living in Sally's neighborhood. No one likes Buzz. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=195324000 195324000 Nick Streets Nicholas Streets is Sally's too-cool-for-school brother. He's a "radical" fifteen-year-old skater boy, and may or may not actually be a ladies' man. Nick is a good guy deep down, though can be a bit of an airhead. He often lends the voice of reason, even if it's usually by accident. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=195324001 195324001 Sally Streets Sally Streets is an entitled and bratty nine-year-old, whose hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness often leads to her becoming the butt of jokes. Sally is usually a third grader, though once bumped up several years after cheating on a series of tests. Because of her dramatics, she doesn't really have any friends, though has plenty of acquaintances whose odd chemistry makes for some interesting situations. Sally also stubbornly refuses to wear anything other than her pink dress and green hair bow, because pink and green are her favorite colors. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=200703187 200703187 Preppy White Girl An illustrated high school student stereotype used on the cover of the Free State Free Press newspaper. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188575552 188575552 Swaggy Tool An illustrated high school student stereotype used on the cover of the Free State Free Press newspaper. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188575554 188575554 Stoner Kid An illustrated high school student stereotype used on the cover of the Free State Free Press newspaper. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188575553 188575553 Goth Scene Emo Punk An illustrated high school student stereotype used on the cover of the Free State Free Press newspaper. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188575551 188575551 Arrogant Jock An illustrated high school student stereotype used on the cover of the Free State Free Press newspaper. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188575550 188575550 Mean Old Lady This illustration accompanies a Free Press story about an angry old lady. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186701052 186701052 Pick A Party (Democrat vs. Republican) A satirical and polarized look at America's political parties, featuring the Democratic Donkey and Republican Elephant. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284923 186284923 Blue and Yellow The stars of my animated short film 'Colors'. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284898 186284898 Blue and Yellow Holding Hands Artwork of Blue and Yellow holding hands after the events of 'Colors'. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284903 186284903 Yellow Kisses Blue Artwork of Blue after being kissed on the cheek by Yellow after the events of 'Colors'. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284904 186284904 Freddie the Firebird Freddie is a phoenix who is the Free State High School Firebird mascot. Freddie's very outgoing, friendly, social, and nice to everyone. Well, almost everyone thanks to his very prominent and sarcastic sense of humor. Freddie has a shadowy superhero alter-ego known as "The Phoenix", who protects Free State from the evil USD497's school board villains. The Phoenix is the leader of the Firebird Action Hero Response Team (F.A.H.R.T.). https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196880310 196880310 Free State High School Firebird The Free State High School Firebird logo. While I did not create the logo, I did redraw and create this high-resolution version. There are five main Firebird designs that have been associated with the school: 1.) The original 1997 Firebird that ripped off the design of the Temple Owl's body... (http://cjonline.com/images/081797/FSHS_firebird.gif). 2.) The unofficial Firebird that people misuse all the time for some reason. From what I understand, the "unofficial" Firebird (the one with the smaller head) was created as an immediate replacement for the first one with the Temple Owl's body, later to be replaced with the current official Free State Firebird logo (the one with the bigger head). 3.) The current official Firebird (this one). 4.) The Marching Firebird logo that people confuse for the official school logo. 5.) Freddie the Firebird, and my character design for him... (http://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoid=196880310). There have been many different variations of the Free State Firebird, but most all take direct inspiration from this one. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186914358 186914358 Farewell Free State Freddie the Firebird wishes seniors goodbye at graduation. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=191962073 191962073 Freddie in Summer Freddie the Firebird enjoys his Summer Vacation. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=193106004 193106004 Firebird Productions A logo for Firebird Productions, Free State High School's film/media studio, featuring Freddie the Firebird. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284916 186284916 Department Freddie (Firebird Productions & Film) Freddie the Firebird directing a film shoot representing Free State High School's Firebird Productions and other film classes. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284908 186284908 Department Freddie (Business) Freddie the Firebird displaying the contents of his briefcase representing Free State High School's business department. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284905 186284905 Department Freddie (English) Freddie the Firebird sitting on a stack of over-sized books with his monocle writing "English" for Free State High School's department of the same name. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284906 186284906 Department Freddie (Music) Freddie the Firebird playing drums, trumpet, and bass while singing a song representing Free State High School's music department. https://www.jacobhood.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186284910 186284910 Swag Reality Freddie the Firebird demonstrates the true nature of the word "swag".
