I’m afraid I’m at Fan Expo all weekend, and in between the few moments I’m not sketching for the happy people, I’m sleeping or catching up with Batman 66.  So here’s a couple of convention themed Bun Toon from years past, because I love, and maybe a sketch or two from this weekend.

Ah…the memories I leave with people…

Claremont still hasn’t forgiven me for letting that bus slam into him.  He carries a weird grudge.

Except for the Stilt-Wookie, I’ve Bingoed already at FanExpo!

Here’s a couple of convention sketches from this weekend so far…

red jla group

 

On the inside front cover of a Justice League hardcover from the 90s….I was asked to draw the entire roster from the years I was drawing the title.  That’s 14 characters….the problem is, drawing on the red paper is essentially impossible, because you cannot see the pencil lines…and I had to give up and basically start drawing the figures in white-out pen, just to see their outlines.  Like drawing blind…a fun challenge.

My wife bought a set of coloured markers for me before we left.  I usually do sketches in black and white, but this year it’s been fun to add a little colour!

I am groot fanexpo 14

 

It’s funny…last year, I didn’t draw so many Groot or Rocket Raccoon drawings…this year…the requests have gone up slightly.

Ty the Guy OUT of the HOUSE!

BUNS TOONS! YAY!

Here we go again with the sex and the gender and the stuff...

Here we go again with the sex and the gender and the stuff…

Of course, with all the controversy, I had to call a press conference…but I recorded it if you weren’t there…

SAUCY CARBONARA

I’m just thrilled to see Ortiz the pool boy return to this strip.  He’s this summer’s break out star!

TY THE GUY OUT!

————————————————————————————————–

I was so upset to discover that Milo Manara swiped his Spider-Woman cover…

Ant_1…but there’s only so many poses you can put an invertebrate exo-skeletal super-heroine into…

By the way, I’m no stranger to the sexy cover pose myself…

I mean, "woof!".  Am I right?

I mean, “woof!”

I used to be the funniest person at the funeral.  You’ve never seen me be as funny as the day I did a forty minute stand-up routine about my first marriage breaking up.

Nowadays, comedy is a skill.
