Shameless Plug Returns!

Look how shameless he is!  The hem on those SHORTS?!?

Look how shameless he is! With the raised hem on those SHORTS?!?

I didn’t get to where I am in the fast moving world of celebrity (with the starlets, the free flowing booze and constant gifts of semi-precious stones) by being a wallflower.  So today I shake my tail feather for a couple of projects that you might not have known I’ve been doing lately.

SKINNY STEVE ROGERS!

First up, is a comic I co-drew for Marvel Comics as a give-away at Kiehl’s Drug Stores in the US, Captain America:  Transformation and Triumph.  I did the flashback sequences in the 40s featuring Skinny Steve – and even got to draw an iconic “transformation sequence” into the super-soldier (who says ya can’t have fun at yer job?), with lots of reference to show how Kiehl’s at 3rd Avenue and 13th Street in New York used to look.

Back in the war, the world was sepia toned. My parents told me.

The script was written by William Harms, with the lion’s share of the art by Angel Unzueta who drew the pages that take place in the 21st Century with modern Cap. Check the USA Today article for details on how you can get a copy. We don’t have any Kiehl’s up here in Canada-land so I’m hoping someone snags me a copy or two and sends them to me!  (That’s a blunt hint, there…)

QUANTUM AND WOODY!

The World’s Worst Super-Hero Team Returns, and ye humble bunny gets to play in the sandbox!  YAY!

For anyone who’s wandered into a comic store in the last few months who has an OUNCE of taste, you may have noticed the return of the best of the old Valiant Universe to the stands.  Well, with the best, must obviously come “the worst”, so the first issue of the all new Quantum and Woody, written by James Asmus and drawn by my buddy Tom Fowler, comes out in July (1oth?), but until then, Valiant Comics and IGN are posting weekly webcomics for the next six weeks featuring the team that’s NOT a couple!  I drew ‘em and co-coloured ‘em with the missus, James Asmus’ wrote ‘em and the internet brings them to you.

HERO INITIATIVE

WALKING DEAD SKETCH COVER

My latest cover for Hero Initiative charity organization was done as part of The Walking Dead 100 Project. One hundred sketchcovers will be going up for auction over the next few weeks. Check out the link to see all the covers, and keep an eye on the Hero Initiative site as to when they put new covers up for auction (I think they do ten at a time).*

I was in the middle of drawing a fun little Walking Dead spoof for Mad Magazine when I drew this, so there’s a “Mad Mag” flavour to the art.  Just so long as there’s SOME kind of flavour, those Zombies look hungry.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN!

Okay.  This is cheating.  You guys already knew about these, because I plug them all the time, but this is the one that’s on sale coming up!

A cover I've always wanted to do...just the punching and leaping, and lots of it!

A cover I’ve always wanted to do…just the punching and leaping, and lots of it!

I didn’t draw the insides (yes, I know, people are up in arms about this all over my neighbourhood), but I still get to play on the covers, and the interiors are really quite well done versions of the episodes.  Well worth picking up for Spider-Man fans.

A friend of mine told me he thought this cover looked like pajamas.  Wait…is that a bad thing?

HUGELY COOL NEW PROJECT

FOR DC

I’m CURRENTLY drawing ___________________________

(information redacted by the publisher)

which is probably the MOST FUN I’ve had drawing a comic in years.

Not kidding.

I’ll let you know when I can let you know what it is.

Ty the Guy

And now, a BONUS PLUG moment.

because if it's meant for British Lads, it's automatically funny.

It’s meant for British Lads, so it’s automatically funny.

 

 

FF Bun Toons. YAY!

The World's Greatest Webcomic presents...

The World’s Greatest Webcomic presents…

If I’m ever asked to write the Fantastic Four, I’m ready with solid ideas.

ff in the neg zone websize

As far as I know, Wonder Woman and Superman are actually making noogie nowadays, so you can’t keep up.

Remember, it’s only 13 days before the Mayan calendar runs out, so it’s not as if any of this matters after two weeks, anyway…

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your BONUS moments.  Arguably the two most NEGATIVE moments in the history of the Fantastic Four…

From the much loved “FRED AND BARNEY MEET THE THING” series of the early 80s.   Benjy Grimm is a teenager with a magic ring, who fought crime and stopped trains on Saturday morning, while sharing the hour with the Flintstones (although they never actually met during the show).

From the Roger Corman FF feature film.  This is about as negative as you get.

*******

AND! If you’re in the GTA (or even as far afield as Barrie or Hamilton or Burlington or St. Catherines–yes, I’ve had students come in for classes from those cities. I swear to you–the classes are THAT GOOD!), we’ve got TWO classes starting up in January. Check out the information on the COMIC BOOK BOOTCAMP website

AND! We’re offering a One-Day/Night Workshop on RENDERING WITH MARKERS. Thursday December 13 7-10pm OR Saturday December 15 1-4pm. Price includes THREE Copics markers for you to take home.

DOCTOR DOOM BUN TOONS. YAY!!

You are all at my mercy...and Doom HAS no mercy.

If this one doesn’t speak for itself, then I have no business cartooning.  It’s a spiritual sequel of sorts to a BUN TOON I did for DC Comics a few years back. It seems only fair that Marvel gets a shot.

Ah, but you knew the winner going in.

Wait, does this mean Christmas season is upon us?  It IS the moment of DOOM.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Sharp Political Satire Bun Toons! YAY!

The bunny-phoenix, I arise-- from last week's Easter Toon demise.

It’s well over a year before the USA has another national election, but your exciting neighbors to the North are having one right now!   I can explain it all in just a few minutes with…

We don’t have a Tea Party, but we have religious lunatics and policy wonk dullards, just like you guys!  And this election IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE EVER!! Or so, I’m told.

At least North Americans everywhere agree that Trump is a goon.

Easter Bun Toons! Yay!

It's Officially Bunny Day!

Eggs!  Chocolate!  Religion!  It’s like Christmas, only with more cholesterol.  But there’s only room for one king of the cartoon bunnies around here.  And I play for keeps.

Of course Bugs wins.  I was foolish to face him.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your bonus comic book / creepy Easter Bunny moment:

The rabbit's eyes! They burn into my soul! THEY BURN!!

Charlie Sheen Bun Toons, YAY!

You can't process Bun Toons with a normal brain!

I wrote this Bun Toons a few days ago.  Thank god Charlie hasn’t died yet, so it’s still funny.

He’s not just winning.  He’s BI-WINNING.  That’s straight from the man himself.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your drunken Galactus Moment of Zen:

Can you drink someone under the table if the table is three hundred feet high?

Oh, I can’t resist…here’s ANOTHER Drunken Galactus Moment:

And he's drinking EXCELSIOR!

Super Bowl Football Toons! Yay!

Too busy to blog. Never too busy to Bun Toon!

The annual Super Bowl madness is once again upon us this weekend.  The testing of men, the tasting of triumph, the gating of tails.  For those unfamiliar with this ritual, I give you…

This sporting event does not involve a puck in any way, Fellow Canadians, so  go back to your hibernating sleep, it does not concern you.

Ty the Guy OUT!

And now, your Merry Marvel Football-related Comic Book Moment:

 Mutant NFL players with Superpowers!  Gaze upon it, ye mighty, and despair.  This series ran for more issues than you’d think in the late 80s.
