Seuss Trek Wednesday!

I’m dropping in for a moment to share a couple more fun moments of Trekkieness here at the Bunny Factory.

First up, a sketch cover I did at the convention this weekend.  A fan got a Shatner signature on a blank Star Trek cover, and asked me to fill in the space above it with a portrait of Kirk and his ship above.  I get asked to do likenesses a lot in my work a lot (Mad Magazine, Batman 66, Dexter, Star Trek) but it’s never as easy to a good likeness sitting at a convention floor working from a little phone-google image of the celeb.  Fortunately, the fan brought with him a nice big shot of Shatner’s handsome mug, and it turned out okay.

Second:  We sold a few copies of David Gerrold’s TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES book, (the one with the all-new Tybunny cover art) at the convention….but we only had the softcover version at our table, and no one got to see the FULL wraparound cover that included Koloth bathing in the vile, barking, headless rats (his words, not mine).  Well, since I drew six zillion tribbles, and my devoted wife coloured six zillion tribbles, you have to see them all six zillion tribbles.

so there.

And it’s nice to announce that my latest Star Trek-adjacent project (with oft mentioned Trek Legend David Gerrold), “OH THE PLACES YOU’LL BOLDLY GO”  is gangbustering its way around Kickstarter.

But like all things Kickstarter-y, we need  your help to feed the beast (and yes, I’m referring to my teenage children).  If you’re hoping to see the love child of a Grinch and a Horta, or ever wondered how Thing One and Thing Two would deal with the Prime Directive, this is the book for you.

Check out the details HERE.

Ty the Guy OUT!

I’m drawing a cover that features the Bat-Eared Fellow this week, and promoting my Star Trek project, so of course the Bonus Moment is…

FanExpo Canada: SATURDAY

Day Three! We can do this! 10am – 7pm, I’ll be back at P57. Won’t be there the whole time as I’ll leave to do a panel on

From the Screen to the Page:  Comic Book Adaptations, Room 714 at 11:30.

I’ll be speaking from my experience writing a Star Trek mini (Missions End), drawing and writing Batman Adventures and now…drawing a parody of Star Trek meets Dr Seuss for the Kickstarter project, Oh, the Places You’ll Boldly Go! (see what I did there?). For info on the Kicktarter, click on a tribble:

I’m not doing a new Bun Toon today as I’m busy with the convention but luckily, I have Bun Toon’d about Trek before:

Ty the Guy OUT!!

Montreal!

No conventions or appearances this June for family reasons, so my next convention will be Montreal Comiccon. It’s one of my favourite cities so I’m always happy for a chance to visit.

As with my other appearances I will be doing pre-con commissions. Info is on the page:  COMMISSIONS. I have to update the list of available sketchcovers when I find ’em all…if there’s one you’re interested in let me know and I’ll see if I can find it at my LCS.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Hop, hop and away!

I promise, no complaining about the new Zack Snyder movie, except for this bit here.

Another honest-to-god-true-life-adventure.  Ah, the life I lead…

Torch passing

I suppose my other children are pretty cool, too.  No, really.

As long time readers of this blog might recall, my eldest son, Kellam once went out on Halloween as BLUE SUPERMAN!  blue-superman-photo

Perhaps the only Blue Superman ever on Halloween.  Not a single house knew who he was.

Below is a conversation I had with Taylor about the Archie characters.  It’s an ongoing education with my brood.

And, of course, me and the lad aren’t the only ones with a Christopher Reeve man-crush.

Jerry Seinfeld’s man-crush on the big blue boy scout is so strong, a few years back, American Express actually hired me to draw Superman and Jerry palling around together.  No, really.

I think Superman is tickling Jerry here.  What was I thinking when I drew this?

Pre-Con Sketchcover Commissions 2016

MattTheRadarTech_TyTempleton

I generally only do commissions on-site at conventions but after a number of requests, I did some in advance last year. I was pleased at the results (I like working at home in my drawing chair!) so I’ll be doing it again this year. At the moment, I’m limiting this to sketchcovers. As long as a convention is still listed, I’ll be taking commission requests for it but I am limiting numbers for each con.

UPDATE:  August 29 2015. My list for FanExpo is closed. I will be doing sketches and sketchcovers at the show itself. I will be bringing some blanks with me. If you want a Harley though I’m all out…check your LCS or the retailers at the show.

UPDATE:  I won’t be taking anymore requests for Chicago, as I have to get on a plane tomorrow morning! I will be at the convention all four days, sitting at the Hero Initiative booth and will happily do sketches and sketchcovers (although I won’t have any of my blanks with me).

When I get back from Chicago, I will be picking up more sketchcovers and will update my list for FanExpo requests then.

I generally only do commissions on-site at conventions but after a number of requests, I’ve decided to do some in advance. At the moment, I’m limiting this to sketchcovers. Single figures are $60, Two figures are $90, markers and copics.

My next convention is Wizard World Chicago, August 20 – 24. I will be there the whole weekend, holding down the Hero Initiative booth. FanExpo Canada is September 3 – 6. I will be at my own table in the pro section for that show.
