Getting to Know Your Co-Hosts – Special Tribute to Jeremy Hawkins

Every year, we introduce the co-hosts so you know the people behind this massive endeavor. Unfortunately, co-host Jeremy Hawkins is unable to put together a post due to an injury. The other co-hosts decided to pull together and share some things about the amazing individual behind the A to Z Challenge graphics and website.

Condensed from his blog, this is what happened to Jeremy:

I fell on ice last Saturday and broke my ankle where the short of it is I have 8 screws and a new holding plate. I am heavy medicated and loopy, typing this I hope it makes sense. Now this is not the world's worst injury, I have never broke anything. I want to thank all my friends and family for all the support.
It's bed rest for two solid weeks and then back to the other doctor for more... I have an iPad once in a while so I am on Facebook.
I will try to catch up soon, thank you for your friendship and "I will be back"
-Jeremy [Retro]

Jeremy is the genius behind the A to Z Challenge graphics and the website design, taking time out of his busy design schedule to help the team. He is the author of several books featuring graphics, short stories, or both. He also designs badges, banners, and websites for others, and he has a complete line of t-shirts for sale at Neat-O-Rama.

In addition to helping with this site, Jeremy maintains his own blog at Being Retro, Howling Wolf Records’ site, the Horror Blogger Alliance, and Hate the Captcha, a blog dedicated to The Walking Dead.

He’s also interviewed many movie stars, artists, musicians over the years. Jeremy travels to horror and anime conventions and posts pictures of attendees and stars. He works with Howling Wolf Records and maintains their site.

What you really need to know about Jeremy is he has a heart of gold. He will do anything and everything for his friends, taking time away from his business and wife to do what is necessary. You can’t ask for a better friend.

You the man, Jeremy. And we think you rock! - Alex

Jeremy is more than a co-worker in this crazy train of the A-Z Challenge, he’s my friend. Please leave a comment. We want to cheer him up with a lot of them! Jeremy is one of THE most generous and self-less people I’ve met. He’s always there to lend a helping hand and a willing ear, and he’s truly a great listener. Always ready with a good quip, he cheers you up by just being himself.  True.

He’s also quite the artist. I’m not just talking all the badges and bling and banners and art he does for the A-Z and his friends. He’s a published artist.  Talented.

I’ve had the honor of beta reading several of his books which are now available at Amazon. Here’s a link to his author page. I’d say his specialty is photopainting – that’s what I call it anyway because honestly, what he does is so out of my realm of knowledge. I can’t even size a picture correctly, so it’s a good thing that he’s an admin on my blog, which he built from scratch, just as a favor. That’s another example of Jeremy just being himself.  Giving.

But wait! That’s not all! He’s also a t-shirt designer! He has his own section at Neatorama with his designs. These aren’t just great because of his art (and the great snark in a lot of the captions) but the t-shirts themselves are really great quality. I have two of them. I recommend a long browse so you can get what suits you best, but if you’re stuck for an idea, the Ninja Army shirt he made in honor of Alex is a good place to start!  Loyal.

I can’t say enough about this wonderful friend of mine, but since other co-hosts will be chiming in, I’ll have to leave you with this brief picture. Checking out his many blogs and websites will give you a bigger one.

From Arlee -
Jeremy has been my go to guy for not only the A to Z Challenge, but for my own blogs when it comes to bringing things to life with his brilliant images. The man is like a mind-reader when it comes to creating his custom artwork. I just have vaguely say what I'm looking for and he'll quickly shoot me back something that looks like what I was thinking but even better. His creative artistry has been responsible for many of my badges, headers, and my iconic BlogMan logo.
You're a good friend to have, Jeremy. Sorry you've had the recent setback, but at least you've been keeping your sense of humor about it. And I'm sure your mind is cranking away some great new ideas.

From Heather -
Dear Jeremy,
My Facebook newsfeed is so incredibly boring without you. You make me laugh almost every day and I will be sad until you return. I hope you heal quickly and I will expect regular weather reports from your ankle from now on. Hugs & chocolate kisses!

From Nicole -
Whether navigating the horrors of the apocalypse or gathering human souls around to hear some good tunes, Jeremy is the elixir that saves us from the craziness of our universe. He makes all things pretty; glowing in wonder, sprinkled with funnies and covered in cool!

From MJ -
Jeremy is one of those people you’re glad you have the chance to meet in Blog Land. He’s a true friend, and an honest to goodness, kind and real person, the type of guy who makes the world a better place, for having known him. I got to know Jeremy better since co-hosting with him in the A - Z Challenge. I can say without reservation that I’m really glad I did. Best to you, Jeremy. Get well soon!

From Damyanti -
Jeremy is one of those guys who would do a lot without asking for anything in return, and then offer to do more. He does a great job with the graphics, and helps customize badges and a thousand other things-- always kind, unobtrusive and cheerful. He is a good friend, and a huge asset to our team.
Take care of you, Jeremy, and get well soon.

Thanks for all the cool graphics, Jeremy! I just completed downloading all the letters of the alphabet for my posts. Take care.

Keith Channing said...

Jeremy. I am brand spanking new to this challenge and, indeed, to blogging as anything more than a personal diary. It is very apparent, though, that you are a very necessary, integral and active part of the team here (amongst other things). For that I thank you, and for that I laud you.
I am very sorry to hear of your accident, and offer my best wishes for a speedy and uneventful recovery.

DL Hammons said...

I'm sorry to hear about your misfortune, Jeremy, but knowing the trooper that you are I'm confident these two weeks will fly by and you'll be back motoring in no time. You've always been a tremendous giver to the blogosphere, and it is indeed my pleasure to know you!

BTW...you've been BLITZED! Jumping on the ones that can't run away is so much easier! :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I hope you make a full recovery soon. Still love the Minion badge you made for me last year.

J.L. Murphey said...

Jeremy,
Yeah, you're a blogger, movie and music buff, an A to Zer, designer of t-shirts and a whole lot more. BUT most importantly of all...I count you as a friend! Heal quick and enjoy the drugs.

As I said before, damn ice! But what a lovely tribute to you and your creativity.
Wishing you well and a quiet blitz day - a day where you smile through the pain and see the impact your creativity has had on those you've touched!
Oh, and listen to your wife! LOL

Happy Blog Blitz Day!

Julie Flanders said...

So sorry to hear about your injury, Jeremy. I fell on the ice and broke my arm several years ago and have been uneasy about walking on ice ever since - I'm a total klutz so it's a challenge for me anyway LOL.

I hope you make a speedy recovery! And Happy Blitz to you as well. Take care!

J.L. Campbell said...

Jeremy,

So sorry to hear what has happened. I hope your recovery time flies by. Based on all the stuff posted about you, I know you're a good friend to have, not to mention being super-talented. Rock on!

Theresa Milstein said...

Poor you, Jeremy. It's amazing how we can be fine one second and then find ourselves derailed. I hope, once the pain gets better, that you find some time to relax. Often we're so busy rushing and making deadlines that we don't just be.

Happy Blitz Day!

Arlee Bird said...

Jeremy, look at the love that's coming your way here and it's still early as I enter my comment.

You are a blogging hero and you deserve the recognition and adulation!

Wow, Jeremy, You obviously are one incredible individual, loved by many. Hope you have a quick recovery and are encouraged by the love and lauds flowing your way. God bless, Maria

Carol Graham said...

You are missed but appreciated and all will be well. The same thing happened to my husband two weeks before Christmas and they did the surgery on Christmas Day with the long screws and steel plate. Watching him helps me empathize with you. Don't push it -- this too, will pass!

Tina said...

Can you feel the love tonight...(Lion King, in case you're on enough drugs to forget the movie songs...) We're all here for you as you can see, and hope this cheers you a bit.

Alex, awesome job putting this together. Thanks so much for taking the lead. You're a true Ninja Captain. Get yourself a cosbolt! ;-)

Lotsa love and prayers for a speedy recovery, my dear friend!

Jeff Hargett said...

I read Jeremy's post yesterday on his blog. 8 screws! Let's hope he never has a screw loose.

Jeremy, hoping you recover well and fully--soon. In the meantime, enjoy the medication. :)

John Harp said...

Happy Blitz Day!
I hope everything heals up well, I imagine it would stink being out of commission for a little bit.

Holy moly, that's quite a bad break! I'm glad surgery went well. I hope you feel better soon and can be up and about. Happy Blog Blitz Day, Jeremy!

Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

Just think, Jeremy, most people don't receive these kinds of accolades until they're guest of honor at a funeral, which is such a waste, if you think about it. Far better to receive all these sweet flowers now when you can enjoy them.

The pain pills may already have you feeling blitzed, but I hope you enjoy this blitz filled with good wishes a lot more. Happy blitz day, and get well soon.

Oh no! I hope you recover soon and everything heals nicely. Take care, Jeremy! And happy Blitz Day!

Love the Tee-shirts. Thanks for doing the Horror Blogger Alliance. Hope the ankle mends perfectly and you're back in business in short order. But until then, take it easy and let it heal. They don't stick pins in there for the heck of it. We'll add you to the list of folks that could use a little Reiki to help get well.

Susan Oloier said...

Jeremy, your graphics always rock. Here's to a speedy recovery. Getting injured is a real bummer.

It is said, that "a man is known by his friends." You must be spectacular, indeed. A speedy recovery, I wish for you and hurry back. You are missed and I want to meet you! Mary aka Viola Fury

~Sia McKye~ said...

Well, Jeremy, if you had questions as to people's view of you, I would think and negative thoughts can now be put to bed. Well, don't store them on the one you're resting on.

8 pins? Great Scott, that's a lot. So does this qualify you as bionic? Y'know, better and soon to be faster?

I love the music I've both bought and won from visiting Howling. Not only do I like you but my ears LOVE you. :-)

Dear Jeremy--you are the most wonderful artist--I am so sorry about your injury! I hope it heals very fast. I find that I love all of your work--it has so much depth!-- and I know that we all agree that you are a totally indispensible member of the A-Z core team. Please get well soon, as Elaine from Seinfeld would say!

Hi Jeremy - well that was a nasty thing to do .. and no wonder you're feeling loopy.

Rest up - get healthy .. sounds like you have masses of people to help, or have helped ... sincerely, I hope your ankle will recover fairly quickly ... don't rush it!

Glad you've got the ipad for when you're feeling like being on line .. cheers for now - Hilary

Get better soon, Jeremy. I know from personal experience how painful and annoying it is to have metal hardware in your bones, and to have orthopaedic surgery.

Happy Belated Blitz Day. Take care and get well soon
