    END OF THE ROAD

    Well, after five years and over six hundred and fifty individual pieces, we have both decided that the time has come to bring the Transformers: Mosaic project to an end. A number of reasons could be cited for drawing the project to a close, but ultimately, it was never going to last forever. We had a pretty good run, and it’s just time to bow out.

    It’s been a true honor to watch the project which began as a humble collaboration on the IDW Forums grow to become a fandom institution, and even it’s own genre of Transformers storytelling. The project enjoyed incredible support from the wider Transformers community, and even the stewards of the franchise itself. We’ve had the blessed opportunity to work with some talented and passionate people, and even played a small part in launching a few professional careers.

    So, what does this mean for anyone currently working on a submission for the project?

    Well, first off, the 'Transformers the Movie - Special Edition' sub-project is no longer a stand-alone entity, and any pieces that were part of it, would now become regular submissions.

    There are still a few completed pieces in the pile, and they will continue to be released as usual. These should take us through to the end of June 2012, so any other pieces that are completed and submitted before this time, would be released an included under the 'Transformers: Mosaic' banner.

    After that time, any other pieces would be the responsibility of the creative team to release themselves. We do ask that any of these pieces, do not include the 'Transformers: Mosaic' logo, and are not advertised as such.

    Obviously, this is not the end of Transformers fan-fiction. The project has spawned a number of other similar projects, just as TF: Mosaic itself sprang out of inspiration from an earlier one. There are many dedicated people in the community to keep telling their own tales. As a wise man once said, “It never ends”.

    Thanks again to everyone who has; written, drawn, colored, lettered, commented on or just supported a Mosaic. This project truly was by the fans, for the fans. Take a bow, all of you.

    It’s been an amazing five years, and we were lucky to be a part of it. We now look forward to where the creative community will go from here. Now get out there and write and draw the future.

    Damn. Although TF: Mosaic had its good and bad, those were a blast to read. Hell, I even kept some of my personal faves on a hard drive.

    Thanks!

    Great work, guys. I like how the project led to us meeting in Pasadena. And of course the ultimate result: Spotlight Jazz (remix)

    Awww..

    Is there a deadline for submissions? Can we write a Mosaic about movie (Bay) characters? I have an idea but fear I may not have the time to execute it. I have an story brimming about two barely used existing movieverse characters who are arch enemies in another Transformers timeline...

    Thank you so much for sharing the news here as well as for sharing the work with us. It's been so much fun over the years reading these. My hope is that a set of artists from here could decide to make such a project here :)
