Brandy is one of the creators of the last two Rainmakers. I am the other one and I will be around helping her out. We will have some of the customs of the Rainmaker trine for people to look at.

Marcelo Matere has been providing artwork for Transformers packaging, comic books, and toy designs for quite some time now. His style is very adaptable, from highly detailed G1 to a more cartoonish Animated look. His latest project is as cover artist for IDW's "Deviations" title.

Archie Cunningham is the creator of the Armored Forces comic, but his interest in comic books and pop culture goes far beyond that... Check out his Transformers art as well as his original creations at BotCon 2016! It'll be great to have him there!

I guess that makes sense. It's kind of annoying for me, though, as I get an e-mail that tells me there's a new post whenever such is generated on these forums.

Usually, I find this to be a helpful feature, but it's frustrating to come on to find that there's actually nothing new after all.

Robby Musso, who is probably the nicest guy you will ever meet, will be set up in the Artist Alley again this year. Stop by to see his fantastic artwork, which includes a lot more than just Transformers for those with wider interests.

There's also this guy. I don't think anyone knows who he is...
Just kidding, everyone knows the Transformers: Animated art director and biggest Transformers fanboy there is, Derrick J. Wyatt!

Adam Hicks is a pop culture illustrator who has quite the library of work to offer. Super heroes, movie & tv characters, and of course Transformers. He's great with marker sketches, so make sure you get your name on his commissions list!

Do you like dinosaurs? Everyone likes dinosaurs!

Matt Frank, the much-praised artist behind IDW's Godzilla comics and frequent artist for Fun Publications projects, will be in the Artist Alley with plenty of beastly goodness. Grimlock, Beast Wars, and some plain old humanoid robots as well, you'll have plenty to browse through if you stop by his table.

If you've seen any concept art from the movies or Transformers Prime, there is a chance that Ken Christiansen had a hand in creating it. Especially if it was in the Transformers Covenant of Primus book. If you're fan of the enigmatic 13 original Transformers, stopping by Ken Christiansen's table would be... Prime.

If you never heard the name Rob Roberts, perhaps you've heard "Cheetimus". You've definitely seen his custom Transformers action figures! He'll have his table set up again this year, sell customs and offering to jazz up your Transformers figures with whatever paint you'd like!

Silas Zee has made a name for himself with his simple style that captures the look of animated films from days past and turning robotic characters in to human forms.
