• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Templesmith 6143.jpg

An example of his art.

A somewhat mad Aussie artist known for his eerie, vivid style, dark humour and using a mixture of digital and traditional media in most of his work.

His first commercial work was on a Spawn spin off, but the comic that really elevated him into the limelight was 30 Days of Night with Steve Niles. Since then he has illustrated a large amount of comics for IDW Publishing such as a Dead Space prequel comic and issues of Doctor Who and G.I. Joe, IDW also publish Templesmith’s own comics such as Welcome to Hoxford, about a Heroic Sociopath who ends up in a extreme security prison that is actually a front for a pack of Werewolves and Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, his ongoing series about a cadaver possessing, beer loving, demon worm and his gaggle of weird acquaintances.
