More Mad

There’s still a cover or two to show from the San Diego Comic Con Mad Magazine special edition…so I’ll be posting them to fill this space until Ty finds time (in between working on his new Mad assignment and prepping for today’s first class for the “Writing for Comics: Inspiration on a Schedule”) to rant all on his own.  I’m back to threatening to follow him around with a tape recorder…he’s been reading a book about the early days of the National Lampoon (a magazine near and dear to Ty’s comedic heart) and giving me little mini-lectures about the history of the NatLamp, SNL, and the early days of Mad. You guys gotta hear some of this stuff!


Ty drawing Harvey Pekar for Mad Magazine–he was pretty happy with this assignment.

Upcoming Appearances

Besides teaching two weeks of Comic Book Inking: 4 Perspectives, and the full eight weeks of Ty Templeton’s Comic Book Bootcamp Part 2, and Writing for Comics: Finding Inspiration on a Schedule (all through the Toronto Cartoonists Workshop), Ty has been booked for two upcoming conventions.

Check it out on his Appearances page.
