“All art is skill – none of it is talent…”
– Ty Templeton
Ty Templeton by far was my favorite person to interview during Hal-Con this past November. Ty exudes self-confidence and decisiveness in his work that only proves why he is successful and that he definitely deserves it. Among his work, he has written for comic giants like Batman and Spiderman, which in itself is impressive and somewhat intimidating to any interviewer – but Ty also has the ability to make one feel at ease and open to dialogue, thank the gods…
We spoke about many topics ranging from creative blocks, Beethoven as a child and my favorite – talent vs. skill(you’ll find this about 15:00 into the interview).
By the end, I wanted to attend the Ty Templeton’s Comic Book Boot Camp, even though I’m a photographer and not a writer, I know that it could only increase my creativity and productivity as an artist.

Thank you Ty for your time and letting me pick your brain, it was a pleasure.
