One Fine Set of Bun Toons! YAY!

If only I had more fine days in the week!

If only I had more fine days in the week!

There’s no escaping it.  The dreaded DEADLINE DOOM is still with us (though it will be over in a matter of days).  That means I STILL cannot spare even eight minutes this weekend, without making it impossible to make my Monday deadlines.

Since it’s such a fine day, I thought today I would re-run all my Bun Toons that start with the phrase, “One Fine Day….”.  I did a lot of those in the early years of the Bun Toon, firstly because it was an homage to Don Martin, but mostly because it meant I didn’t have to have continuing characters, or a point of view, or my own comedic voice.

These are a few of my favorites of the “ONE FINE DAY…” Bun Toons.

Is there anything as timeless as an Adam Lambert reference?

My kids have pointed out to me how very odd it would be to have a young person reading a book.  It should have been a Kindle.  Live and learn.

It’s funny because cancer.

I shall be back next week with an ALL-NEW BUN TOON, I promise.  Unless there’s some sort of natural disaster or the Earth opens up.

Ty the Guy OUT!

AND as your Bonus ONE FINE DAY…I even have one about Halloween, which is coming up, so it SEEMS timely.

This last one is actually true, by the way….so it’s also an HONEST TO GOD TRUE LIFE ADVENTURE….another series within Bun Toons, I shall save for some future deadline doom.

So Sorry To Disappoint Bun Toons! Woah!

 

bun toons alt 2014

 

I’m in the middle of the most crazy deadline pressures of my adult life this last week as I wrap up Batman-Green Hornet and gear up for a quick, but fun visit with Spider-Man.   I’m so, so, so close to the bone with the deadlines that any waking moment not devoted to drawing Adam West and the gang is immoral and cruel to my editor (and colourist and letterer), so I’m afraid I have to run some RE-RUN TOONS this weekend.  (Only the second time I’ve done this in over four years of Bun Tooning! I’m NOT a failure.  I’m NOT!)

Since it’s Batman (and eventually Spider-Man) that are knocking my calendar days around, I figure it’s only fair to re-run some Bun Toons that feature ‘em.
