ARTIST MATT FRANK TO ATTEND TFEXPO 2012!
TFExpo is proud to announce our latest guest for the 2012 show! Transformers Comic Artist Matt Frank will be attending the show in Wichita, Kansas on August 4th, 2012. Matt will be speaking with fans and signing autographs throughout the day.
Transformers fans are currently enjoying Matt’s work in the ongoing Transformers Collector’s Club comic “Flash Forward”. He has also contributed pencils to IDW’s Beast Wars Sourcebook and Transformers: Animated – Rise of Safeguard. But Matt is perhaps best known for his artwork in recent Godzilla comics, from Kingdom of Monsters to Gangsters and Goliaths, and many more.
Matt joins previously announced guests Garry Chalk (voice of Beast Wars Optimus Primal and Armada Optimus Prime) and Integrated Media Group, who contributed visuals to the 2007 Transformers film and many other Hollywood movies. Garry will be speaking with fans and signing autographs throughout the day (limit one per guest). IMG will be giving a presentation as well as a Q & A covering their involvement with the films.
TFExpo attendees will find a fully stocked Dealer’s Room, where they can purchase a wide variety of Transformers merchandise. And if you’re the type of fan that likes to wear your enthusiasm on the outside, TFExpo will be holding its very own Cosplay Contest! Just register with TFExpo staff when you arrive for your chance to win great prizes! Younger fans won’t be left out either, as TFExpo will also be hosting a Bot Shots Tournament.
Saturday evening, convention attendees can enjoy the TFExpo 2012 Saturday Night Pizza Party, featuring the reading of a fan-written script by Garry Chalk and a selection of lucky amateur voice actors! Script submissions can be e-mailed to TFExpoICT@yahoo.com. Auditions for voice actors will be held at the show during the day, please let TFExpo staff know when you enter the show if you are interested in auditioning.
Following the script reading, the evening will wind down with an event we call “Garry Chalk Unplugged.” Garry will be performing with his guitar, sending off TFExpo 2012 in style!
Register today at http://www.tf-expo.com! Registration includes admission for one to ALL TFExpo events, including the Saturday Night Pizza Party featuring Garry Chalk. Also included are a TFExpo souvenir T-shirt, early admission to the Garry Chalk autograph line, early admission to the Dealer’s Room, prime seating in the Panel Room and other “surprises”. PLEASE NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS JULY 8TH, 2012. If you are not interested in the full registration and would like to purchase a t-shirt or admission to the Pizza Party separately, you may do so at the website as well, but these will also close on July 8th. Extra t-shirts MAY be sold at the show in VERY limited quantities, but admission to the Pizza Party will NOT be sold at the show, or any time after July 8th.

A graduate of the University of Texas in Austin, Artist Matt Frank splits his time between drawing robots… and monsters! Matt gained popularity with his fan art series Godzilla Neo and has since made a name for himself penciling many Godzilla comics.
Matt entered the world of the Transformers by creating character illustrations for IDW’s Beast Wars Sourcebook. He then did interior pencils for Transformers: Animated – Rise of Safeguard. Currently, Matt’s artwork can be seen in the pages of the Transformers Collectors Club story, “Flash Forward”.
TFExpo is thrilled to welcome Matt Frank to Wichita for TFExpo 2012! Matt will be speaking with fans and signing autographs throughout the day. And he may just have something special up his sleeve for attendees of the show…
