About Us

Well, let me introduce myself, JimHookins and Mike [ap6y3chub] – “watermelon chub” (eng). We are a couple of chub bears who are creative in the genre known as – bara.

We started our creative activity in 2018 as a creative studio, BedtimeStories18+. And we were not confident in several pilot gay comic. One of which was pure improvisation with no pre-written plot. But it allowed us to get the necessary experience and practice of creating comic. 

Our Comics Projects

In 2020, despite all the world’s difficulties, we began to create a large project – the comic book in the “bara” genre “Prescription BBQ from Mr. Laam vol. one” in full-color format. And the first page of this comic we were published in the summer of June 1 on patreon.com. Since then, the following pages have been every Saturday and on schedule at 5:00 PM (EST).

And we are happy and proud that we were able to complete this volume of the comic, which turned out to be very successful and embodied our ideas. To our pride, we can say that during this time, we have never missed the publication deadline and did not disappoint our subscribers on Patreon.

The closing page of the first volume came out on November 24, 2020, and then we published the full version of the comic in compiled PDF format. Our patrons received the comic strip in two language versions, English and Russian. And for our most loyal patrons who are with us from the very beginning, we made a gift – a personalized version of the comic with gratitude and an autograph of the authors.

Current Art-projects

We are now expanding our presence on various platforms to increase the target audience’s reach and make our art content accessible.
We need your support and recognition. That will allow you to create interesting thematic gay bear art and comic further, in an even more advanced quality.

The second volume will start in March 2021. And now we are working hard on the sketches and the critical points of the script. The second volume promises to be even hotter and charged with passion from the very beginning.

As you can see, my work about big guys such as a daddy bear or a chubby. I love the body aesthetics of these hefty guys like my hubby exactly. And I am one of them too. I think I have my handwriting and style, and I’m not chasing trends in an attempt to please everyone. I only draw what I like and what turns me on. Of course, like any content creator, I want to realize my potential. I understand that the genre I have chosen can only be in demand in narrow circles. Well, ok! But then I will try to be one of the best.

I have met people who say: "Oh no, gay art or comic book don't turn me on." Guys, you just haven't seen a hot comic story yet. In this sense, you have yet to lose your virginity. Better to do it with BedtimeStories18!

Storyline, Post-production

So what do we have for you? In comic and art, we flirt with: dominance, feeding, VORE variations, submission, peeping, unconscious voyeurism, gay-sex, male milking, etc. And all this is only with chubs and big hairy bears gay.

We often borrow plots of stories from independent authors, one way or another known in narrow circles. Or we come up with a tale ourselves. In this, I will try my hand at writing the story, the script, and the characters’ lines. And I think I’m good at it. I also create the layers of hair on the characters in our artwork and special effects texture, post-production, and advertising.

I love being the prototype for one of our main art characters in comics. This process is fun for me and allows me to develop dialogues and behaviors creatively. To some extent, it resembles a movie script or a movie role. Although I don’t know how it is, I have never had such an experience.

Our Ideology

BedtimeStories18 logo squad-white

Whether you like it or not, civilization has followed the path when large IT corporations decide what is acceptable today and what is not. And all of us are consumed by the relentless censorship. Freedom of thought and expression is prohibited, even when it comes to art. The prospect of the future is very bleak, and we don’t like it.
We all came to social media and YouTube, thereby giving them a monopoly of content management. They now say what you are allowed and what is not, without even asking what you want.
I don’t know what you think, but I’m pretty sick of it.
This site is a kind of return to the origins, our island in the ocean of information where we decide what is possible and what is not. Of course, within the framework of law and morality, but not to the detriment of common sense.

Reasoning

We think that creativity, like literature, art, or animation, should not be limited. A simple assignment of a rating and a warning about the internal content is enough so that the user himself can decide whether he wants to see more or not. Thus, giving him a free choice.

We work with plots that are sometimes far from vanilla stories and pink cotton candy. Often in our stories, the tale is ruthless and can even be fatal for the main character, with all the details, and without smoothing corners when cornering. This brutal straightforwardness is present and may surprise you.

But let’s cool down a bit and think. After all, the ability to fantasize and not mix it with reality as well as setting boundaries is what makes us human. We humans come up with rides that take your breath away and get an adrenaline rush. We read literature with scary stories, watch movies, draw – these are our toys. Then why not? Let’s have fun without prejudice!
