My poor neglected blog

I've been busy working on the new show Transformers Animated, and I'm only going to get busier. So here's a toy by way of apology. And as an added bonus, here are some pictures of Bulkhead that are NOT in the new show.

I can't put up any drawings that are actually IN the show, so this batch of doodles from the recording session for show 10 is it for now.

Show 10 is the one with Soundwave, so that was a fun recording session, as I'm sure you can imagine. Sorry there was no Laserbeak, but Hasbro sprung that on us as a surprise well after the board was already done.

Actually, as far as recording sessions go, the Transformers sessions have been among the most enjoyable of my short career of sitting in recording booths and doodling on scripts.

The regular cast are all seasoned pros with enough experience to goof around and make the sessions fly by while still delivering knockout performances for every single line.

On top of that, we've had an amazing selection of guest-stars already - Townsend Coleman, Lance Henrickson, [secret guest star 3], John Moschitta, [secret guest star 4], [secret guest star 5], [secret guest star 6], Peter Stormare and Weird Al Yankovic! All in just the first 2 seasons!

So far, a very fun couple of seasons. Hopefully all that fun will get captured on the screen.

I know you're laughing so hard at all your self-redacted actor references. What a jerk.

Nice doodles, I always like seeing the work that goes into a character (it's the best bit!)

I've just started a new blog over at

Pop over if you have the time.

All the best
