Bill Sienkiewicz, Michael Golden, Mark Texeira and the covers they did for Transformers 1, 2 and 4.
I'm back from Wizard World Miami 2011 which ended just a few hours ago and I would like to thank everyone who made this show such an absolute blast for me. I have to thank Jerry Milani at Wizard PR who treated me like a legitimate member of the media although I'm just some guy who likes old toy robots, amazing sketch card artists Mike "Locoduck" Duron and Rhiannon Owens for letting me interview them, Renee Witterstaetter of Eva Ink Artist Group and all the artists she represents for being wonderful people, J. David Spurlock who really makes other artists shine in the panels he moderates, Scott Thompson creator of Danny Husk:The Hollow Planet for being mind-blowingly funny (and giving me free stuff) and especially Michael Golden for taking the time to talk to me about Star Wars, Micronauts, storytelling and collecting toy robots. I had an incredible time.
Pictures, stories and of course the audio from the interviews I did with Mike, Rhiannon, Renee and Michael will be up later this week. Right now I have to study for midterms so the podcast and putting up pictures will have to wait but thanks to all you guys out there for reading my blog and listening to the show. Without you I wouldn't be able to trick vast media entertainment empires into letting me into their conventions and convince comic artist legends that I'm somebody important enough to talk to.
