Pre-Con Sketchcover Commissions: Open!

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.

Every Bunny But Me Bun Toons! YAY!

It's like a GHOST TOWN around here...

It’s like a GHOST TOWN around here…

I was at a fairly large comic convention last week in Montreal, where I had a great time, and watched poor Arthur Suydam get molested by the internet for something he didn’t actually do.   (Ah, mob mentalities, where we would we be without you?)

But this weekend, I’m NOT at the big convention…and all of you ARE.

stay home comicon rev

Have a happy Comicon, San Diego Peeples.  Kiss Batman for me.  I’ll be here in line for Ant-Man and all the Happy Meal toys when you get back.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Your Bonus Bits are some Convention Stories from Bun Toons Past.  Who says this isn’t the Rabbit Age of Comics?

Seriously.

Who says?  I need names.

the ego goes kablooey websize

And that’s the REAL reason why it’s best not to go out in public.  The potential for humiliation is always looming.  ALWAYS.

Because The Internet Is Asking For Someone To Do This Bun Toons! YAY

And no one is going to do it, but me.

You remember, years ago, when America was the home of the brave and the land of the free?

Sigh.

The comics industry saw three major creators retire this week, and it’s worth noting their passing.

Legendary creator Jack Davis is retiring his pencil this week.  At ninety years old, he says it's time to go fishing.

Legendary artist Jack Davis is officially putting down his pencil. At ninety years old, he says it’s time to go fishing.  Considering his astounding body of work, and the personal inspiration he’s always been to me, he’s already caught the big one.

Creator of Tek Jansen and Alpha Force Seven. Stephen Colbert, is also retiring this week.  Though Tek Jansen wasn't a top selling series, there was a lot to recommend it, and I doubt that Mr. Colbert will stay retired long.

Creator of Tek Jansen and Alpha Squad Seven. Stephen Colbert, is also retiring this week. Though Tek Jansen wasn’t a top selling series for ONI Press, there was a lot to recommend it, and I doubt that Mr. Colbert will stay retired long.

Craig Ferguson, the actor who played Aquaman on CBS's Late Night TV show has left CBS for wetter pastures somewhere.  We wish him luck, and have our fingers crossed that he gets the nod should there ever be a big budget Aquaman movie.

Here are a couple of the Christmas Covers I’ve done over the years…

Because it's the Phantom Stranger, it's possible those decorations are the living souls of the Justice League.  AAAAAHHHH!!

Chain Smoking Bisexual Bun Toons! YAY!

Not the rabbit...he's wholesome

Not the rabbit…he’s wholesome.

There’s so many Comic Book related TV shows on the air this season that a dedicated fan cannot keep up.

But worry not, I am here to make sure there’s nothing you’re not privy to…here is…

websize constantine

It’s actually a hell of a show, pun intended….and but for the empty vessel of an actress playing Zed, they’ve won over the viewing audience at casa Templeton-Smith.

Who says this isn’t the DC age of odd TV?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Your bonus moment today is completely unrelated to Constantine or sorcery in general, except the kind of sorcery you get with cleverness.  I recently came across some of my artwork being used on one of the most wonderfully fun websites on the internet called SUPER-TEAM FAMILY: THE LOST ISSUES!  Here’s the image…

batman samurai jackThat’s my cover from Batman and Robin Adventures #20 being used, only the original DID NOT have Samurai Jack on it…that was added by the fun team at SUPER-TEAM FAMILY: THE LOST ISSUES.

Here’s another one they did, using artwork I drew from the famously pulped Elseworld’s Annual some years back…

batfish

Holy cow!  That’s a Jack Kirby Namor added to the artwork!  That’s too much fun.

Here’s one using a Superboy figure I inked over some Kevin Maguire pencils…

cold superboy

There are HUNDREDS of these covers over at the LOST ISSUES website (only a dozen or so use images from comics I worked on, though), and every one of them is a grand hoot.

Go, check ’em out if you haven’t already!
