Fascinating Bun Toons. Not Yay.

I was at a comic convention in Kitchener, Ontario yesterday, where I was asked to do a sketch of Mr. Spock.  This was about twenty minutes or so, magic markers on cardboard from a photo on a smart-phone.

It turned out not bad for a marker sketch.

I’ve drawn Nimoy/Spock a zillion times over the years.  He was one of the faces I used when I first auditioned for Mad Magazine a lifetime ago…

Here’s Spock’s first appearance from issue #1 of the Star Trek miniseries I wrote for IDW a couple of years back:  MISSION’S END.  The pencils are by the delightfully skilled Steve Molnar.

I loved the “alien” look on the character, looking down on Gary Mitchell and another crew-woman as they first encounter him.  One of my favorite moments from a script I wrote brought to life perfectly by Steve…

The “Spock Five” did, in fact, start with me.  I’ve been drawing these on Canadian money since the late seventies, and some time in the nineties, a TV producer friend of mine named Mark Askwith asked me to demonstrate the trick on TV.  Shortly after that, I started getting them back as change, which freaked me the f*** out the first time it  happened.    Apparently, they’re still around, and a few folks did up some new ones in hounour of Leonard’s passing.  (the bill up above is not one of mine, btw, but I can’t find an original bill anywhere and had to settle for one found online).

I’m at a Convention in Kitchener, Ontario

But I shall be at my post tomorrow

But I shall be at my post tomorrow

I woke up at 7.30 am, and was out of the house by 8.30, so there’s simply no time this morning to Toon.

See you tomorrow, for a SUN TOON.  I suspect it might be melancholy and wistful.

Live long and prosper.

Ty the Guy.

Love is in the air, and some of it is on the carpet.

Today is Valentine’s Day!  It’s also my youngest daughter’s birthday!  So it’s all about love, today, people.   And as someone who has been around the block a few times and lived a life of experience and knowledge, I have insights worth sharing.  (The block was in Metropolis, by the way, and the experience was all in monthly instalments.)

what comics have taught me

Now that’s solved everyone’s love life.

Ty the Guy OUT!

————————————————————————————————

Of course, that’s not the ONLY thing that comic books have taught me about love.  Here’s a BUN TOON from a while back explaining what comics have taught me about the science of slap and tickle…

That “Ty” signature in the heart shape has been the subject of SO MANY lawsuits between me and the Beanie Baby people.  Don’t make me relive it…
