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.
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.

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…

Sorry folks, we‘re at Wizard World Chicago this weekend so Ty has no time to Bun Toon. See ya back here next week.

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.
The blank sketchcovers I currently have on hand are:
Batman 66 #23
Superman #32 (FanExpo only)
A-Force Secret Wars #001
The Flash #39
Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #001
Wonder Woman #19
Wonder Woman #36 (FanExpo only)
Justice League #16
I have some others ordered; I’ll update the list when I get them.
All covers will be available for pick-up ONLY at the convention. Payment can be in cash at the convention or you can PayPal me before pickup.
If you’re interested, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me which blank, and what you’re looking for. I’ll confirm with you before I start anything.
