Sketch Cover Commissions!

Chibi Wolverine

Ty has been asked a few times about doing commissions, and generally says no. But after posting some of the sketch covers he’s done recently, he was asked if he’d make it possible for out-of-town fans to get one…  As he was giving it some thought, he got to do a bunch for a one-day Toronto comic convention and enjoyed it enough that he decided–yes. Yes, he will!

Okay, this is NOT a sketch cover. But it could have been!

Email Ty at tybunny AT gmail DOT com, if you would like a sketch cover. Please list your name, mailing address, and which blank sketch cover you would like. We have access to Batman, Deadpool, Thor, Uncanny Avengers, All New Xmen, and Fantastic Four (to the best of my knowledge). You can request characters, situation, etc. and Ty will let you know if he’s able to accommodate you.

**NEW**–I’ve checked and we also have access to The Hulk, Daredevil, The Defenders, Scarlet Spider, and Wolverine blank sketch covers.

Covers will be done in pencil, ink, archival quality markers, Prismacolours…more or less whatever Ty has to hand. They’ll be black and white, with some greytones and occasionally with red marker/ink.

The New Harley Costume.  As much as I love this character, I don't love the new costume, but what's more fun than a thirty pound whoopie cushion?  (I had reference for this costume, provided by the fan.  I'm not THAT good at working from memory).

A familiar idea that a fan asked me to reproduce for him.  Yes, it's flipped over...again that was a request.  I haven't drawn a Dark Claw cover yet that's not based on an existing cover, since the official cover was taken from a B:TAS promotional poster.

Ty is charging $45/Cdn for these covers (that will include the cost of the book which we purchase from our LCS). That’s for a maximum of two characters–if you ask for something complicated or with lots of characters, he may quote you a higher price. Ask for a quote for a full cover wrap.

Shipping will be  $4/Cdn shipping and handling to addresses in Canada; $5/Cdn shipping and handling to addresses in the USA.  (Anywhere else, email and we’ll figure it out and get back to you!) When Ty has confirmed with you that he’ll do the sketch cover, we’ll send you a PayPal Invoice. Books will be shipped in a comic bag between two backing boards, in a bubble-wrap envelope.

**NEW**  (AND…if you want to have your cover submitted to CGC, we actually have the ability to do that through a recognised representative. Let us know when you email, please. We would find out through the rep what extra costs and time that would add on to the commission)

This Weekend…

Hey folks and focuses.  I’ll be seeing everybody in the free world tomorrow at the Fan Appreciation Convention in Toronto, so tonight I’m running loose in my studio, looking for art I’ve never showed off before, including pages from my recent Spider-Man/Thing/Harvey Pekar stuff, original art from my Bun Toons, some Dexter Animated art,  and some grocery receipts and shirt cardboards from the dry cleaners.

I’ve got a couple of fun prints to sell (woo hoo) some work in progress from the Bill Finger project, and might even have a story or two to tell about my new DC gig that’s too fun to contain.

And the BEST part of all, this is the first official convention guesting of Marvel and DC letterer and Moonstone Colorist, Mrs. Me.  The startlingly talented K.T. Smith (mother of my children and ruler of my heart) will be seated beside me.  Come on over and wave hello, we promise not to bite, unless there’s money in it for us.

Guy, Ty the.

Here now your comic book convention bonus moment:

 

Is there anyone who doesn't look great dressed as The Real Wonder Woman?

…and I remember to add prices…

Probably time for another cup of coffee…but first, the prices.

So…both pages are 11″ x 17″ on illustration board,  pencilled by Mike Parobeck, inked by Ty Templeton, check payment and shipping information, and if you would like a page, email us at tytempletonart@gmail.com.

New Pages…Seriously.

It’s been a very, very, very long time since I posted any new pages. We’ve been busy rearranging the house, creating a work room, and an area to store all of Ty’s pages. Ty even took a couple of days to sort through a bunch of the pages and organize them. When he first did so he kept bringing pages to show me and announcing, “Wow, I have a lot more good stuff left than I thought!” (He even managed to find his Tailgunner Jo pages which he’d been asked about for quite some time)

Well, that was then…and with artists, what they said and felt on Monday is not what they say and feel on Tuesday, because everything that was amazing on Monday is absolute CRAP on Tuesday and they can’t believe that you think anyone would want to look at it. Not that I’m quoting or anything!

But, I’ve managed to get  TWO (2) whole pages outta the Guy…

These are from the banned Elseworlds special much discussed here and elsewhere…

11″ x 17″, on board, pencilled and inked by Ty Templeton  $300/USD.  If you want ‘em, see here for pricing and shipping info, then send an email to tytempletonart@gmail.com.

First up, The Metal Men:

Here’s the colour version of the Metal Men, given that most of the free world never got to see these pages in print (from Again with the Comics)…

and the Teen Titans
