Yet Another Contest Update!

It continues to amaze me how viral the Jetfire Contest has become! Entries keep pouring in, and it's proving to be quite difficult to choose my top five favorites. Who knew being a judge would be so hard? The watches will certainly be going to two very deserving winners. Thank you to all the Transformers fans for being so creative and for keeping me well entertained. I'd also like to give a special thanks to two well-known Youtubers, Sean Long and Peaugh, for helping me to promote the contest. Videos promoting the contest have received over 55,000 hits online! This in itself is surely something to celebrate!

My World Tour

Well folks! I'm back in Los Angeles from the UK and The London Film & Comic Convention. It was a massively successful event with people traveling from all over the world to get there and I really enjoyed talking with everyone and meeting so many dedicated fans.

I was pleasantly surprised at the number of Robin Of Sherwood fans who attended and it was great to see the show find a whole new audience with the younger crowd finding the show for the first time!

Of course, Jetfire was a huge favorite with the British Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen fans because of the character's eloquent use of a colorful British expression! It seems Jetfire has added at least one new word to the Transformers lexicon! However Bumblebee remains everyone's favorite yellow, alien-robot guardian and I'm extremely proud to be associated with the character.

Special thanks go to Jason Joiner and Paul Jones for your friendship and support and all the incredibly hardworking staff at the event.

We also launched the Blood Type trailer (which I directed) on Saturday and the stars: RJ Gibb and Edward Blagrove were literally swamped by autograph hunters and writers, John Matthews and Wil Kinghan also ended up signing away for dozens of enthusiastic vampire aficionados!

Blood Type is a new take on the Vampire myth, created by John and Wil with music by RJ and Robin Gibb with a brand new score by Mick Kiely. Featuring narration from Jason Connery and a talented cast of young actors the film follows the story of Sophie (Emily Berrington) whose unique blood carries a deadly secret that can kill or cure. Pursued by a savage assassin Galen (Edward Blagrove) aided by a young American doctor, Stephen Hampton (Emrys Matthews). Sophie flees through time and across worlds on a mission to save her world-and ours.

Stay tuned for further Blood Type production news as it happens.

On another Transformers note, the competition for the two Seahope watches has turned into an Internet phenomenon! Thousands of fans have watched the various YouTube promotions and fan supporters online and entered the competition with the hope of winning those two unique watches! We'll wade through them all, I promise and hopefully have by finalists by August 6th! Keep sending them in and we'll do our best to keep up!

Work on new issues of The Pilgrim has commenced and online Graphic Novel publisher: ComicMix will be running the new material through the fall. Mike Grell (Warlord, John Sable - Freelance, Green Arrow) is hard at work, drawing the series and Mike's new material really rocks!

We've also laid down the basic musical tracks for two more songs from Wuthering Heights and I'll keep you posted as to when they are ready to be released on the site…Probably sometime in the fall!

I'm also very happy to announce that The Wildwood Tarot has now been officially commissioned by publishers: Eddison-Sadd Editions and co-authored by John Matthews with artwork by award winning artist: Will Worthington. The Greenwood Tarot has been out of print for some years now, so it's timely and fitting that a revised and updated version be produced by this high-quality publishing house.

The Wildwood Tarot has actually come full circle in many ways, as I originally pitched the idea to Nick Eddison and Ian Jackson of Eddison-Sadd in the early nineties. At that time it was not a project we could go forward with together and Harper Collins picked it up and requested we change the name to The Greenwood Tarot. So in a way The Wildwood Tarot (It's original name) has completed it's journey around “The Wheel” and it has finally come home! Developing a new Tarot is a long and demanding process that cannot be rushed but we project The Wildwood Tarot will be available sometime in 2011.

Now! I am very excited to announce I can confirm I'll be traveling to Tokyo and Hong Kong to represent Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen characters at several events in Japan and China and I'll post the event details next week.

Thanks again for all the support and keep those Jetfire competition entries flowing!

Love to all,
