Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Review
Transfromers: Revenge of the Fallen is devestatingly entertaining. I saw the midnight showing of The Movie at Orlando Universal Citywalk on Wednesday. The military scenes are golden perfection. I found myself wanting to fast forward through a lot of the Witwicky shtick and spend more time with Lennox, Iron Hide, Epps, and Sideswipe. The climactic battle had everything giant robots are about: Heroes fending off a seige of evil bots with the fate of the world caught in the crossfire. Give the heroes tanks and giant robots of their own and I get one of my new favorite movie battles.
I was honored to be asked to appear at JACON, May 22-24, as a featured talent. They had seen my Grimlock art on display at Megacon earlier this year and wanted me to bring some Transformers art to JACON because Gregg Berger, the voice of the original G1 Grimlock and Skyfire, and Stan Bush, performer of "The Touch" and "Dare" from Transformers: The Movie, were appearing as special guest.
I did two prints specially for JACON. The first, in honor of Stan Bush, is "Transformers Rock!" which features Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, and Grimlock in a band rockin' on stage. Optimus, standing in for Stan Bush, has the same style of guitar as the on
I'm so excited! I have my first artist alley at Megacon this weekend! I have a bunch of my fan art, mostly Transformers because that's what I've been doing alot of this last year.

In other exciting news I had a nother Transformers: Mosaic piece post yesterday. "No Surprises Here" stars the alligator Headmaster, Skullcruncher. No Surprises Here" is written by Josh van Reyk, with colors by John-Paul Bove, letters by Franco Villa and pencils and inks by me. :D
I stumbled across a few of your Transformers pieces and followed them here to your Gallery and was simply blown away by what I found!
I'm producing a TF Comic Series with the help of Artists here on DA. I was wondering if you were at all interested in helping out on such an undertaking with a Page of Line Art? I'd be delighted to discuss the project with you
I love your Dinobots vs. Headmasters Artwork. It's just like an awesome idea to come with up with Dinobots waging their to destroy the evil forces of the Headmasters. I'd could come up with an idea based off of it myself!
Speaking of which, did you come across making one of Slag and Weirdwolf?
