HALLOWEEN AFTERMATH BUN TOONS! YAY!

Like a Zombie Jesus on All Saint's Day, I return from the dead.

Like a Zombie Jesus on All Saint’s Day, I return from the dead.

Sorry to be away from the Bun Tooning these last few weeks.  Killer deadlines for Batman vs. Green Hornet pierced my cartooning heart and laid me to rest, and then, JUST as I was getting some time off, I was re-attacked by Steve Gerber’s KIDNEY LADY and cursed with excruciating stones.

But I am back, gentle Bunny people.  Today, as we all recover from last night’s dark reverie, I share a story of the parts of Halloween that we carry with us long after the holiday has past…

BWAH HAH HAH HA HA HA HA!

The ears never fully grew back, by the way.  My cartoon bunny is a lie.

Sigh.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Just in case you need to see it…

The only photo of me from that day.  We settled on lipstick instead of wax for the numbers.  The paint is starting to come off from around my nose because it’s later in the evening, and I assume it was something to do with cocaine or the sniffles.

This is what I had looked like the day before…

So it was a bit of a transformation.

For those of you in the Toronto area, come on down to the COMICS LOUNGE at College and Clinton.  I’ll be there all day Saturday raising money for DRAWING FOR DEB.  Deb was a friend of ours who passed away this year from complications of epilepsy and myself and Fantastic Four superstar Leonard Kirk will be there.   Click on the link to see what the fuss is about.

And my wife (the room mate of the actress) is hosting a 12 hour COMIC BOOK MARATHON at the same location, in the BACK SPACE!  Come on down, and help raise money for epilepsy research, pass out drawing comics for twelve hours in a row, or recover from your sugar high amongst cartoonists!  Either way, it’s something to do that’s not in your house.

If only the drugs were this good…

After two weeks of deadline enforced Re-Runs, I woke up this morning feeling awful.  I even had to cancel a store appearance (sorry Kevin) I’d promised weeks ago.

But I’m somewhat up and about, and will do my best to Bun Toon as the day goes on, no doubt having a toon first thing tomorrow.

See you when I’m no longer stoned on the Tylenol 3s.

Ty the Guy OUT!

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.
