The NEW classes are on the schedule!
HOW TO DRAW THE FIGURE FROM YOUR HEAD
A knowledge of human anatomy is one of those skill sets that seems frustratingly complicated to learn. But it’s not, we promise. Here at the bootcamp, you get step by step instructions on how to build a figure from the skeleton up, with muscles, joints, posture, and body language all explained with simple geometric shapes in a way that anyone can understand, whether you’re a beginner or an artist who’s been at it for a while. Our method of construction makes drawing sophisticated figures in motion seem like a magic trick! CLICK HERE to sign up for classes starting FEB 23!
WRITING FOR COMICS part 1
Writing is often an “invisible” skill. It’s easy to tell when you can or can’t draw, yet difficult to know when you can or cannot write. But plotting, dialogue, character development, story arcs, five act structures and scene work are all simple to do when you simply know what you’re doing. Come learn the skills from a multiple award winning writer with more than thirty years in the biz of making stories and getting paid for it. And don’t worry if you’re interested in more than comics. Our classes appeal to novelists, screenwriters, playwrights and poets. Writing is writing, and here’s where you’ll learn to do it like a professional.

Hard to believe that it’s time to start planning for classes in 2016. Ty will be teaching his Comic Book Bootcamp class, How To Make Comics, for the person who just wants to get the basic grounding of the skills needed to go off and make their own comics, digital or print. For those who have been working on comics for a while and would like to improve some of their skills, the second class will be How To Ink Comics.
For those who have asked, Ty will not be at this year’s one day Toronto comic convention in December; we’ll be in Delhi, India for a comic convention there! We’re looking at the schedule and hope to plan a drop-in for December for Bootcampers, past and future, to stop by and say hello, and show off work and portfolios. When we’ve decided on a date, I’ll be posting that here and on Facebook.
As always, if you’re interested in any of the classes let us know as soon as possible as they do fill up quickly (even when they’re two months away!).

Just posted info on the next set of workshops. Currently, we’re waiting on an international comics convention to announce Ty as a guest so we have to keep quiet about it…but it’s the reason why there won’t be classes the first week of December. The missed week is noted in both class descriptions.
Go here to read up on UPCOMING CLASSES: OCTOBER/NOVEMBER – DECEMBER 2015.
The Thursday class for How To Write Comics is now full so the Wednesday class is now a go. It will be the exact same class, same lessons, same time, just a different day.
If you’re interested in this class, check the details here: https://comicbookbootcamp.com/upcoming-classes-september-october-2015/ and let us know as soon as possible; this class is already half-filled.
Just posted info on the classes for September and October; How To Make Comics (aka Comic Book Bootcamp) and How To Write Comics. Both of these classes fill up fairly quickly so if you’re interested, or know someone who is, please let us know as soon as possible so we can hold a spot for you (or them).
We’ve been approached about teaching classes in other locations and are giving that some consideration. At the moment though, Ty is sticking with his downtown location. Luckily, by September, the Pan Am Games and the resulting traffic snarls will be a long-distant memory!
Ty will have a table at FanExpo Canada September 3 – 6 2015. If you have any questions about classes, or would like to have your work assessed, he will be more than happy to talk to you.
As some of you may be aware, Ty Templeton suffered a heart attack last week. Although serious, he is now recovered enough to be back home. As his doctor’s advice was to start slow, Ty has decided to push back the start date to the next session. HOW TO WRITE FOR COMICS PART TWO will now start May 5, and end June 16. HOW TO MAKE COMICS will start May 7 and end June 18.
We still have spaces in the writing class but you need to have taken Part One and/or How To Make Comics (aka Comic Book Bootcamp Part One). There is no prerequisite for How To Make Comics but there are only three spaces left so let us know asap if you would like to take it.
…are now posted. The second part of HOW TO WRITE COMICS will run Thursdays, November 6 to December 18. Ty’s unique take on learning anatomy, HOW TO DRAW THE HUMAN FIGURE (FROM YOUR HEAD) will be on Tuesdays, November 4 to December 16.
