Dan Khanna - Transformers: Starscream

2014.01.26 Garden State Comic Fest. Ledgewood, NJ

Dan Khanna is  a freelance illustrator, who has penciled comic books for Dreamwave, IDW Publications, Titan UK Publications and the Transformers Collectors Club/Botcon Collectors Convention. Khanna studied at Cornell University, the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Parsons School of Design...

Khanna work has included concept and packaging design for Hasbro, hard Hero and Titan Books/Eagle Moss Publications..

Khanna can be found at may conventions surrounded by his Transformers art. Matt and I first met Khanna in 2011 at the Wizard show in New York, where he drew Starscream for Matt's Collection. Starting his Transformers with fan art, Khanna has quickly become one of the top Transformer artist on the convention scene...

When I approached Khanna, I did not remember which Transformer he did for Matt, and subsequently asked for the same sketch (like son, like father). I had picked up a few United Nations air mail first day covers with the idea of obtaining flight related sketches. Knowing Khanna would be at the Garden State Comic Fest I decided on a Starscream sketch. Starscream is the Decepticon Air Commander F-15 jet, making his first appearance in 1984 as part of the original franchise...
Khanna has a page on the Transformers Wiki...
