I REALLY hope IDW keeps her on Transformers comics. She's by far my favorite TF artist, and it bums me out to no end that TAAO is gone, thus depriving us of her art on a regular basis (and Scott's stories).

I think they'll keep her on; IDW doesn't seem to drop artists much. Thankfully.

Still hoping that the custom class tickets hold out. Several job interviews are happening, which means potential work on that day, and I want to make sure I can have off before actually signing up. Argh.

Announced this morning by the folks at TFCon is that artist Andrew Griffith is going to be coming this year to TFCon! Andrew is known for his work as an artist for IDW's Robots in Disguise comics (No. Not the Bumblebee series! The one before that!)

Thanks to a post by ThreeA themselves, we have word that ThreeA will be attending TFcon USA this year, and they will have a pair of limited edition exclusives for the convention! One is a commission, done by Ashley Wood, of Bumblebee and his friend Spike, while the second is the Transformers Dark of the Moon Premium Scale Optimus Prime! Check out the post below, along with the Ashley Wood art piece!

Hopefully the next Convention appearance Frank Welker makes is close to California, better yet, hopefully he still continues to do conventions, which he barely started in 2015.

Got back yesterday afternoon, unpacked and unwound last night, and back at work today. Whirlwind of a trip and I'm totally running on fumes but this was a fun time. Really nice vibe at this show, just a bunch of folks hanging out enjoying Transformers. More first time Transformers-centric convention goers than I've met in a good while, but nice to see many of the regulars as well (including some of the Botcon crowd!)

If we got to hang out, you're awesome and thanks for helping make some memories. If I missed syncing up with anyone, that's a bummer but there will be shows to come and I look forward to it. Back to reality now :)
