…so there was some sleepy and not-well man wandering around my house looking lost. I eventually tucked him back in bed, and solemnly swore that I would let his faithful followers know that Bun Toons will be up…but not until tomorrow.
Stay strong, Bun Toons Faithful, stay strong!
(Perhaps you could all gather in a room and play a nice game of Jenga while you wait.)
…but will soon strengthen.
After a long couple of weeks, Ty’s finding himself a little more buried under his workload than usual (especially after spending four days away in Montreal, two of those at the wonderful Montreal Comicon)…so he asked me to post a quickie message to say,
“Today’s Bun Toon is delayed–but will be up later today!”
Have faith, Faithful Bun Toon Readers…and maybe read some past Bun Toons to fill the void. (Personally, I recommend, “The Honest-to-God True Life Adventures of the Freelancer’s Wife”)
Toronto Convention Centre, South Building, 4pm. Check the website for all the details…
The Toronto Cartoonists Workshop booth will be in the lobby by the escalators leading to the convention area. Copies of Holmes Incorporated #2 will be for sale, and HI2 creators will be at the booth throughout the weekend, available for signings, sketches and questions. Ty will be there on Sunday (time tba).
Art: Leonard Kirk. Colours: K. T. Smith
Ty will be sitting at P-O57A (look for UBISOFT…then look past Artists’ Alley to the wall, and there he’ll be).
From 5-6pm today, Ty and Rob Pincombe will be running the workshop, “MAKE YOUR OWN DARN COMIC! ASSEMBLING THE HOLMES INC. PROJECT” with other members of the HI2 creative team. In Room 717.
The convention ends at 9pm today–but there’s lots more to come all weekend long!
See you there,
Just a few of the comics Ty Templeton has work in...

If you’ve been around this blog for a while, you probably know I teach classes at the Toronto Cartoonist Workshop when I’m not drawing stuff for comics (and writing stuff for comics). Today’s an anatomy class, and I prepared a couple of handouts, showing the development of the arm and shoulders from a simple skeletal form to a finished one. They’re fun little examples and I thought I’d show off a couple of today’s handouts, just so you guys can see what you’re missing by not coming ’round to the Workshop and hanging out.
The headless woman claps her hands above her neck hole...
More of today’s handouts:
All right, that’s enough knowledge bombs for today. You’ve got the working understanding of the arms now, go draw an issue of the Hulk, already!
Ty the Guy OUT!
Here now, your bonus comic book anatomy moment:
The drawing of Cap on the left is by Rob Liefeld...the drawing on the right was drawn anonymously, but it shows off the level of anatomical drawing skill that Rob is known for.
If you’re a Canadian citizen, get out and
I’ve been meaning to mention this for days now, as it’s just too stupid to keep to ourselves. In Toronto, where I live and slave away at drawing the Simpsons Comics this month, (and finishing Johnny Canuck’s NORTHERN GUARD, and waiting for art in an upcoming issue of Mad Magazine, and, of course Marvel’s AGE OF HEROES is still on sale…plugging boy TY), the local laws have become amusing.
Now, we Canadians long got over the gay marriage and socialized medicine stuff….that’s everyday life around here. But lately in Toronto, the two big legal stories concern the recent court order making prostitution legal, and the recent by-law making it illegal to park more than one car in your driveway.
Freedom comes in many shapes and sizes.
Ty the Guy OUT!
This post wasn’t about comics, so you get no moment of zen. Sorry, but rules must be followed if order is to be maintained.
