I'll be a guest at Emerald City Comicon, March 28-30, at the Washington State Convention Center.
You can find me at table U-04, where I'll be selling prints, sketchbooks, original artwork, and taking commissions. Commissions are first come first serve, each day of the con.
I will have with me 3 new Transformers prints - Seekers Wave 2 - the "Coneheads"! Here is a tease of Ramjet, Dirge, and Thrust...
Additionally, I have a piece published in this years' annual ECCC Monsters & Dames book, and I've donated the original piece to the charity auction being held Saturday, March 29th at 8:00, in Hall D. Proceeds from these items go to benefit Seattle Children's Hospital.
While the piece in the book is in color, the original up for auction is black and white. 11"x17", pencils and inks, on bristol board.
DERRICK J. WYATT draws stuff. And everything he draws turns to gold! From his early work on iMucha Lucha! to his later work on Teen Titans, it wasn’t until Transformers Animated though that mankind truly understood what a genius it had on its hands! Running for three seasons, the Transformers Animated cartoon was the basis for a very popular toy line, an IDW comic series, a plethora of fan art and the most popular BotCon story ever: The Stunti-Con Job!
Though Derrick is not currently working on Transformers, having instead devoted all of his time to some guy named Ben and his Omniverse, he wants his fans from around the world to know that if The Transformers ever come calling again, he will take that call! (Even if it is just those guys over at the Transformers Collectors' Club offering to let him do Animated G2 Breakdown or an Animated Rosanna.)
So make sure to come see Derrick at BotCon 2014. It will be an opportunity of a lifetime! He will be happy to sign almost anything you bring him.
MARTY ISENBERG has written and/or story edited literally hundreds of scripts for animated series far too numerous to mention. But he suspects you only care about the ones with Transformers in the title, so here we go: He’s probably best known among this crowd for developing, writing and story editing three seasons of Transformers Animated for Cartoon Network and Hasbro (and NOT writing and story editing a fourth – grr…), as well writing the Transformers Animated video game for Nintendo DS and six issues of the Transformers Animated: The Arrival comic (and its one-shot Botcon-exclusive sequel “The Stunti-Con Job”). But he also co-developed, co-wrote and co-story edited the fan-polarizing Beast Machines for Mainframe, Hasbro and Fox Kids Network. And, more recently, wrote for scripts Transformers Prime and Rescue Bots for Hasbro Studios and the Hub network. Somehow he’s managed to squeeze in some non-Transformers projects, including Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. and Ultimate Spider-Man for Marvel Animation Studios and Disney XD; Kaijudo and G.I. Joe Renegades for Hasbro Studios and The Hub; Ben 10 (in its various incarnations) for Cartoon Network; and Danny Phantom for Nickelodeon.
Originally from Pompton Lakes, New Jersey, Marty lives in Southern California with his wife and two daughters.
Star Seeker Saboteur Tornado
Aboard the Tidal Wave
Personal Journal – Date index 284.756.13
As we all know, it’s just my nature to be...curious. Being a saboteur, I like to take things apart; I like to figure things out. The Captain speaks of this big bounty that he has planned (“The biggest heist yet!”), and that we will be informed about it when the time is right (i.e. when he’s good and ready.) While I normally don’t have any trouble distracting myself with work, this has got me more curious than usual. The Captain, while normally quite pleasant in his own sadistic way, seems almost… giddy.
I’ve been doing a little digging in the ship's computers. Too easily, really. (They're pirates, aren't they? Surely they know about guarding their loot, even if its digital.) A few nanokliks of effort, and I’ve gained access to the Captain’s Log. Hmm. Disappointing. Some rambling about transwarp that borders on the incoherent – at least for me – but nothing solid about the overall plan. He’s playing it close to the torso plate, as usual. Scrap. Oh well, might as well get something useful out of this. Let's see what he's got to say about the day that Ferak and I joined his crew. It'll be good to know what kind of impressions we made and if the Captain's welcoming smile was actually that...
