"Hell, yeah, I'm weird, but when have I not been weird?"

Jordann William "JW" Edwards (born January 22, 1996) is a comic artist, illustrator, animator, writer, and entrepreneur. He's the creator of The Dynamite Twins and Friends and the co-creator of Bunny and Bear with his sister Jazmine. He is also the founder of MajesticBlue Studios, which houses those projects. And he's a furry; his fursona is Bleu Major.

He was also involved in Space Pirate Captain MacTaggart (even developing the partial spin-off Bloody Cutlass), before ceding control to creators Craig Black and Jacob Elmer.

His works tend to include satire, parody, and deconstruction; Black Comedy; mythology and fairy tales; Science Fantasy; the Furry Fandom; and tons of sex, all drenched in a brightly-colored, surreal hyperpop aesthetic, particularly in TDT and Friends. He also brings that same hyperpop visual aesthetic (in a much tamer, kid-friendly package) to Bunny and Bear.

He's a huge champion of diversity in comics and animation and a champion of pushing both as art forms. He basically sees himself as a bit of an activist, promoting works from non-white and LGBTQ artists, of which he is both.

Oh, and he's also an occasional musician and record producer under the alias (and sona) Bleu Major, with an EP released. He has also taken a mentorship role when it comes to music; he's currently one-half of a hyperpop duo with his little sibling (not technically, but he sees them as one) nanochi called bunnykit. As of December 2023, he has also become creative director for Infurnopawz, with the first few singles set for 2024. The latter partnership includes both of them running Red Castard Studios (RCS), a virtual studio and music label.

Creator/co-creator of:

Music released (as Bleu Major):

  • bleu major (EP)
  • "journey to freedom" (with Infurnopawz)

He frequently invokes:

His works provide examples of:

  • Amazing Technicolor World
  • Animesque: His art is pretty reminiscent of certain anime tropes. He nonetheless doesn't consider it anime, but a blend of various styles.
  • Author Appeal:
    • His love of urban culture (specifically Hip-Hop) is reflected the most in TDT and Friends. In other series, it's usually certain characters; the biggest example is Blackmask, originated in Space Pirate Captain MacTaggart, whom he likes so much that he helped create a version of her that appeared in TDT.
    • His works frequently invoke tons of Fanservice.
    • Many of his female characters show off their midriffs often.
    • Like Russell T Davies, he places his favourite cities at the forefront (his home city, Cincinnati, as well as the San Francisco Bay Area, and even Toronto, Canada).
      • Also like Mr. Davies, his characters can be bisexual, whether they're open or not - for instance, In TDT, Maxie is very bisexual, while his brother Jacqui has his moments. Shep, another TDT character, is a Lovable Sex Maniac who is willing to sleep with anyone.
    • He also names certain things after his family members and friends.
  • Big Brother Mentor: In his TDT and BnB stories. There's always a character or two who may act as a big brother.
    • This was inspired by real life precedent, with himself being an older brother, and him having two older brothers, but also being a "big brother" to some who are not blood related, including nanochi, as mentioned above.
  • Canon Welding: Overlaps with Continuity Nod. Upon building up the universe, he's added elements of other series. This is not restricted to a series of his own creation, but also includes those of others:
    • In Bloody Cutlass, many elements from MacTaggart appear.
    • Speaking of MacTaggart, references to TDT and Friends are increasingly apparent on both.
  • Everybody Has Lots of Sex: Many, if not all, of his characters have "slutty moments". Yes, even the males.
  • Hyperpop: His TDT and BnB stories have elements, visually and audibly, that are simplified and blown up to their extremes. Goes to show that he's spread the aesthetic to the visual arts.
  • In Case You Forgot Who Wrote It: He places his name over the logos of the things he's created himself.
  • Surreal Humor
  • World of Funny Animals: He has a penchant for having a world where animals interact with one another.
