Derrick J. Wyatt, most well known in the Transformers fandom as the lead art director and designer of the “Transformers: Animated” series, has suddenly passed away. This information was obtained from a tweet posted by artist Josh Perez on his Twitter account.
This isn't the best of news to share, but please bare with me. I was informed by Derrick's sister that he has unexpectedly passed away earlier this month. There will be a more information from his family in the future, but for now I just want to let people know.
