Ty Cannot Come to the Bun Toon Today!

If only I had the time to draw this well today...

If only I had the time to draw this well today…

With all the comic book tsuris that happened this week (Batgirl covers and all), I had lots to say in bunny form, but alas, my opinions are restricted to my mouth today, as I am attending a Comic Convention in Toronto, and am out of the house by 8.30 this morning.

Sheesh!

I’m having a great time (except for the lack of sleep) so come on down and say “hi”, and if I’m functioning and awake, I’ll do you a sketch, and mouth off about something pithy.

miracle man 2015

Yesterday I did this Miracle Man for a fan…literally HOURS after re-reading the 16 issue “Original Writer” reprints from Marvel earlier in the day. Talk about timing….

But if I’m muttering and snarly, I need sleep and might be about to pass away from exhaustion.  Then it’s best to ask for THIS character, as I can see her anyway…

Another Friday sketch from Toronto.

Ah, I’m kidding.  I’m still happiest drawing Batman.  I know what he looks like without reference.

So Sorry To Disappoint Bun Toons! Woah!

 

bun toons alt 2014

 

I’m in the middle of the most crazy deadline pressures of my adult life this last week as I wrap up Batman-Green Hornet and gear up for a quick, but fun visit with Spider-Man.   I’m so, so, so close to the bone with the deadlines that any waking moment not devoted to drawing Adam West and the gang is immoral and cruel to my editor (and colourist and letterer), so I’m afraid I have to run some RE-RUN TOONS this weekend.  (Only the second time I’ve done this in over four years of Bun Tooning! I’m NOT a failure.  I’m NOT!)

Since it’s Batman (and eventually Spider-Man) that are knocking my calendar days around, I figure it’s only fair to re-run some Bun Toons that feature ‘em.

Hey, it’s in the news, it’s about comics, I have to make a comment.

There…I told you everyone was happy.

The bonus moment is just as happy.  It was from Christmas a couple of years ago, and Christmas is always happy.

Waking Up and Drawing

Too busy for anything but WorkWorkWork but I wanted to show off what I did for WAKE UP AND DRAW. So I’m going to write this Hemingway style.

Last week for WAKE UP AND DRAW, I woke up and drew. On the wrong sheet of paper.

Here’s my drawing:

small file wake up kirby demon 2013

Then I drew again on the official Hero Initiative page.

Here’s my drawing:

kirby demon 2013 bI was at FanExpo 2013 two weeks ago and gave a lecture on HOW TO PLOT YOUR STORY IN AN HOUR. Matt, of The Broken Couch, recorded it and put it up on YouTube.

Here’s a link to the video:

Sticky Bun Toons?

Ooh, look at the big shot, so BUSY with work.

Ooh, look at the big shot, so BUSY with work.

I’m in the “so-late-with-my-latest-Marvel-project” zone that the clocks do nothing but terrify me, and have to spend the weekend catching up….(I want to have a job next month, you know.)

So…the Bun Toon had to be drawn in Stick Figure form this week, just to save time.

Of course, with the idea being that this was supposed to SAVE me time, the Jack Kirby and Frank Miller mock-ups took me EXACTLY as long as most Bun Toons do….sigh.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Of course, your Bonus Moment is the greatest Stick Figure Comic of all time:
