Mosaic

Swimming Lessons

The Transformers: Mosaic project is a fan-based project to get artists and writers working together to create fancomics.

This piece was written way back in 2007 but took until this year to find an artist. Once out it was extremely popular, which goes to show that people are obviously unwilling to draw anything that doesn’t feature Wheeljack kissing Starscream or whatever because taking a risk is sCaRy. But as we know now, Seacons RULE!

The wonderful, wonderful Randa Rivera (who, despite the name, is NOT a porn star) did the incredible art and Andy Turnbull provided the letters..

The Meals Of Sin

The Transformers: Mosaic project is a fan-based project to get artists and writers working together to create fancomics.

After a lot of serious, sensible pieces, I threw a real curveball and produced The Meals Of Sin, a bizarre comic featuring McDonalds Happy Meal toys having an ultra violent fight in the style of Sin City. I was hoping it would upset and confuse people, but people seemed to really really like it. Oh well!

For those of you not experts in the field of Transformers fast food toys (shame on you!), the hero of our tale is the valiant Under-3 and his enemy is the evil Rally’s Rhinox, lovingly known by the fandom as Rallnox.

Due to the immensity of the challenge, Mark Kuggeleijn assisted me with writing duties, and  Andy Turnbull locked himself in a cave, shunning all human contact for ten years in order to truly capture the feel of the art.

Blackest Night

The Transformers: Mosaic project is a fan-based project to get artists and writers working together to create fancomics.

Blackest Night is another of my one-page Transformer comics, and one of the most popular to date (currently it seems to be neck and neck with Voice In The Dark). It actually isn’t anything to do with DC’s Blackest Night, but it features all the black repaints up to no good, the pun was just too good to resist.

See if you can name all the characters in it, of course if you’re not a die-hard fan, not realising who anyone is shouldn’t spoil it in any way. At least that is the idea. Some of the characters in this were black repainted keyrings from Japan, see if you can spot a keyring loop in one of the panels!

Like with many of my other pieces, I wrote and coloured it, Jake Isenberg did the art, and Mark Kuggeleijn did the lettering.

The Final Lesson

The Transformers: Mosaic project is a fan-based project to get artists and writers working together to create fancomics.

Below is my piece, entitled ‘The Final Lesson’ featuring the super-duper obscure character The Student from the Marvel UK comics. Of course, it is written from the point of view that the reader will have no idea who he is, so all the information you need is there.

I wrote and coloured it, Jake Isenberg did the art, and Mark Kuggeleijn did the lettering. And I think it came out really well. Check the bitchin’ moustache at the end!

A Voice In The Dark

The Transformers: Mosaic project is a fan-based project to get artists and writers working together to create fancomics.

Below is my piece, entitled ‘A Voice In The Dark’, featuring the very obscure characters Sky High and Submarauder. Submarauder isn’t even named, which is a deliberate choice on my side. I wrote and coloured it, Jake Isenberg did the art, and Mark Kuggeleijn did the lettering. And honestly, it is probably my favourite piece yet, which frustrates me because however much I try, I can’t write anything better!

To Be There

The Transformers: Mosaic project is a fan-based project to get artists and writers working together to create fancomics.

Below is my piece, entitled ‘To Be There’ all about Astrotrain! This was part of a series set around the time of the IDW miniseries Megatron: Origin. I tried to make it self-contained and make sense even if you hadn’t read the mini. Did I succeed? Well, its up to you. Writing by me, Art by a rather fantastic artist I met over the internet, and colours by my buddy Mark.

Duel

The Transformers: Mosaic project is a fan-based project to get artists and writers working together to create fancomics. 

 Below is my piece, entitled ‘Duel’ featuring Slugslinger! Written, drawn and coloured by… me! I can write, but I never said I could draw (and this proves it!), however most fan artists are more interested in drawing the more classic characters, whilst I’m more interested in writing about the obscure guys. Hey, everyone was obscure once, you’ve got to give them a chance!

Chasing The Cards

The Transformers: Mosaic project is a fan-based project to get artists and writers working together to create fancomics. It grew out of a similar but much smaller project on the forum The Allspark which I was part of. Below is my piece, entitled ‘Chasing The Cards’ which was later released as a Mosaic. I did the writing and the art, and my friend Mark did the colours. His amazing colouring saves my art because really, I can’t draw!

Personally I’d like to have rewritten it because it doesn’t really flow all that well, but it is here in its original form for the sake of posterity.
