I met Tom Whalen a few years ago at a convention and really admired his work. Each time I'd see him, I think to myself, "why haven't I gotten a sketch by him yet?", lol. I dunno, for one reason or another, I just didn't. But I always wished I did. Well, this year at the Wizard World Philly Con, I made sure to find him and get something from him. I gave him his choice of 1st Gen SENTINELS and he picked Bolt and Templar. I love Tom's line work and style. It's really different than a lot of artists. It has that silkscreen feel to it. And his color work is even more amazing. He's done some awesome poster designs for things like Army of Darkness, Return of the Jedi and even Weird Al's UHF, lol. They're very cool, but don't take my word for it, go see his work at .

I know this guy! I got 2 Hellboy and an Iron Fist pic from him a few years ago. I agree he has an awesome style and I love these 1st geners. It would've been cool to see it colored since his colors are always so vibrant.

Yeah, I didn't even think of color when I got this. I'll have to get another from him in color next time I see him.
