Homesick Alien

Yeah, the title is a play on Radiohead's "Subterranean Homesick Alien," just modified for this post. This here is my first Mosaic (http://transformers-mosaic.deviantart.com/). For those of you that don't know, the Mosaics are fan-made creations of single page stories telling basically anything you want in the Transformers universe. I wrote this on the plane up to Wondercon a few weeks back, and it was an idea that I've had for a while. Cosmos, the poor little Transformer who tends to daydream. But how can you really daydream in space anyway? Regardless, he's a favorite of mine and I had a lot of fun doing this.

Andrew Griffith (
http://glovestudios.deviantart.com/) completely nails the artwork and colors on this one. Seriously, he took a very horrid pencil sketch by me and turned it into this. Nice job, Andrew. Now if only we can get that Spotlight approved (yes, that's a hint for whatever arm-twisting, letter-writing, blackmail photo exploitation campaigns people want to start). I'll be at Botcon this weekend along with pretty much everyone involved in the IDW side of things. I'll be at our booth the whole time, so make sure to stop by and say hello to us. Hope to see you there.

Poor Cosmos... someday you'll realize you really are all of those things. *huggles*

*starts arm-twisting campaign* >_>

Wow, great piece! Cosmos was a favorite of mine, too, and would definitely make a very interesting character for a Spotlight issue. He's got my vote.
