Operation: Kei Zama to attend TFNation 2017

With IDW’s universe of Transformers comics going from strength to strength, the depth of talent involved in creating them grows ever greater and now we at TFNation are pleased to bring more of that greatness to you, in the form of Kei Zama, returning for our second year.

Starting with her series of covers for IDW’s Transformer line in September 2015, Kei-sensei has rapidly gained a large fan following, due to her mean and gritty artistic style, as well as her stunning commission work. Following on from her cover work, she is now bringing the continuing adventures of Optimus Prime to life (along with writer John Barber and colourist Josh Burcham) in his current titular series.

Outside of Transformers, Kei-sensei made her Marvel comics art debut with last year’s Scarlet Witch #10, has provided art for Sparklight comics, as well as covers for IDW’s Atomic Robo, and recently achieved a personal dream in working on an ABC Warriors-related piece for Fleetway/2000ad. Her Blackblood-themed story (written by the mighty Patt Mills) is set to show off her undeniable talent for monochrome imagery and prove a perfect fit for the tone of this title.

We advise all our attendees to keep an eye on Kei-sensei’s blog http://steelandstarlight.com/ for details of her commission list, as the event draws closer.

Kei Zama will be signing autographs, discussing classic British rock bands and selling artwork (including her highly-prized sketchbooks) at TFNation 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. We look forward to seeing you there!

Further transmissions to follow.

Are you a creator of fan art, merch, crafts and just generally artsy things to do with Transformers? Would you like to show off your wares this summer at TFNation 2017? The Forge is returning to the event, and the applications are open now! Find out more information below, and good luck if you choose to apply.

Operation: The Forge Returns for TFNation 2017

TFNation is not only pleased to announce that The Forge is returning for TFNation 2017, but also that applications are now open!

The Forge, located in a specially designated room just outside of the main convention hall, is our home for fan art and crafts and shall be joined this year by various other features, details to be announced in future transmissions. The Forge is an area for our creative attendees to promote, display and sell their work.

Here is how it works...

STAGE 1 - MAKE AN APPLICATION

Aspiring Forge artists and crafters are required to pre-register their interest by completing the application form linked below.

You must be aged 16 or above to make an application. You do not need to have booked a ticket at this stage - you are free to apply before making that decision.

Successful applicants will receive an email inviting them to make a formal booking. Applicants who are not successful this time will be notified and will be welcome to apply again in future years.

TFNation staff will allow a grace period of 14 days, until March 13th, before reviewing applications. This is to allow as many people as possible the chance to apply. All applications will be reviewed by TFNation staff. If necessary, applications will remain open after March 13th until all spaces are sold.

Space will once again be limited, so we recommend getting your applications in as soon as you can.

STAGE 2 - PAY FOR YOUR TABLE

If your application is successful, you will then be able to book your table.

Both Forge Craft and Forge Artist Alley stalls cost £25.00, including built in insurance. You must also hold a valid TFNation 2017 full weekend ticket.

If you do not hold a weekend ticket then one shall automatically be added to your Forge booking. If you have already purchased a day ticket and your Forge application is approved, then your ticket will be automatically upgraded to a Weekend ticket for an additional price.

Full terms and conditions will be available at the time of booking - but here are the important things you need to know about each table type.

FORGE CRAFT STALLS

- For attendees to promote, display and sell any hand-made craft items. Up to three individuals may share a single Forge Craft Stall.

- Stalls cost £25.00.
- Stalls are only available to attendees who have purchased a weekend ticket.
- Some crafters produce art prints of their creations. We are happy to allow these, however toys, sketches and art commissions may not be sold here. This is to protect our artists and traders who have invested a lot of time and money into their stalls.

FORGE ARTIST ALLEY STALLS

- For attendees to promote and display any art prints, sketches and art commissions.

- Artist Alley stalls are for one person only.
- Stalls cost £25.00.
- Stalls are only available to attendees who have purchased a weekend ticket.
- Toys and craft goods may not be sold here. Again, this is to protect our traders and crafters.

All stalls must be staffed by the person(s) who paid for them. This is to ensure the safety of your stock and our attendees. The TFNation crew are unable to staff stalls.

Please CLICK HERE for further details on applying to The Forge.
We look forward to seeing your amazing creations!

Operation: Sara Pitre-Durocher to attend TFNation 2017

It gives us great pleasure to announce that the artist for IDW’s TILL ALL ARE ONE, Sara Pitre-Durocher, will be making her European convention debut at TFNation 2017!

Sara first came to the attention of the TF comic fans in early 2015 with a series of stunning covers for MTMTE, WINDBLADE and RID before providing interior artwork for the one-shot COMBINER HUNTERS. After guesting on a few single issues, 2016 saw the start of TILL ALL ARE ONE, with Sara as the resident series artist. Covering the struggles of a rebuilt Cybertronian society, Starscream has never looked so delightfully devious!

As an art director at Volta creative studios, TF fans will also have seen Sara’s work elsewhere as she provided colours for many of the Combiner Wars figure packaging art and contributed work to the Transformers Legends mobile game, as well as several other iOS and browser titles.

We advise all our attendees to keep an eye on Sara’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/spewpew/ for details of her commission list, as the event draws closer.

Sara will be signing autographs, talking Starscream, hugging Combaticon fans and selling artwork at TFNation 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. We look forward to seeing you there!
