    From the site:
    Announcing SPOTLIGHT: BLURR
    For those of you Mosaicons not fully up to date with the latest news from the offices of IDW PUBLISHING, Transformers: Mosaic (in concert with IDW) is very proud to inform you all that the talented and dynamic duo Casey Coller and Joana Lafuente will be making their (interior) art debut in December, when IDW release TRANSFORMERS SPOTLIGHT: BLURR.

    Both Casey and Joana have contributed some simply amazing art to the Mosaic project, and continue to be valuable supporters of the project.

    Casey has contributed some stunning artwork to both Mosaic and the War Journal project, and was the winner of the "Are You the Next Transformers Cover Artist?" competition we ran a few months ago. His first official comic cover; the Apocalypse Comics "Killing Joke" cover for ALL HAIL MEGATRON #1 was released just last week.

    Joana, a wildly talented colorist and illustrator (and runner-up in the aforementioned Cover Contest), has produced a good number of Mosaics as well, some of which are the most popular amongst readers.

    We really couldn't be happier for them both, and we're very proud to see them have a shot at contributing to IDW's epic TRANSFORMERS comics!

    To celebrate this fantastic occasion, Transformers: Mosaic is very blessed to have this exclusive preview of Casey and Joana's comic, and would like to thank IDW PUBLISHING for allowing us the honor of sharing this sneak peek with Casey and Joana's Transformers: Mosaic fanbase.

    I've never heard of this artist before, but he/she ("Casey" is a gender-neutral name, isn't it?) is fantastic!

    Wow, Blurr sure looks different. So, is this a standalone story, then?

    I have to say that, apart from the antenna on top of the head, the head doesn't look anything like Blurr. The helmet looks more like Cybertron Jetfire with the wing shaped antennae at each side.

    Well, no wonder I couldn't guess which TF the "teaser" referenced, THEY REDESIGNED HIS HEAD :lol 

    Anyways, this looks really cool. I can't wait! Keep it up, IDW :)

    He has the Blurr look. The chest and head thing are just the most Blurr-ish.

    I don't like Blurr. However, I like the Spotlights. So I may like this as my dislike of Blurr is vastly outweighed by my like of the IDW comic books.

    overall i really like the redesign (the vehicle is especially awesome), but the Mercury wings on his head are a bit much.

    I always felt that the head was not the defining characteristic. It was more about the colors and the design of his body (minus the head). I like this Blurr .. looking forward to the Spotlight.

    Regardless of the Blurr-ness of the head, I wouldn't mind if Hasbro made a Universe Blurr with this design. (or influence of the design)

    Wow, I think Blurzz actually guessed this happening, I'm sure he/she will be very happy about this. As for me, I think it's pretty cool.

    He's really reminding me of Hermes/Mercury, more so than the original G1 design did.

    Wow, Blurr growed up and got his-self some chutzpah and a sixpack.

    Never read any comics, but this is a great design.

    The art's gorgeous... but that's a pretty unattractive (and to my mind, fairly pointless) redesign of Blurr. He doesn't look like himself.

    Given the writer, not going to bother with this.

    You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

    It's a Spotlight, so maybe stand-alone, maybe tying into the mainline series.
