It’s in the newly-released March Previews, so I can finally talk about it! I’m returning to writing Ponies!
I’m writing issue #5 of My Little Pony: Friends Forever, which is kind of like Pony Brave and the Bold. My issue teams up Fluttershy and Zecora, which seemed like a great idea until I wrote my fourth page of rhyming dialogue. Still tons of fun. Here’s the official solicitation:
Fluttershy and Zecora take the spotlight in the new fan-favorite series! Fluttershy wakes up one day to find that all of her animal friends can talk to her! But what secret are they hiding? It will be up to everyone’s favorite rhyming zebra to determine the nature of this strange occurrence!
I am doing one of the covers, which I’ll show as soon as I can. In the meantime, Amy Mebberson did a killer cover that I can show. Wow, does that look good!
It’s order code MAR140390. It should be out a couple days before my birthday. You know, if you’re looking for something to get me, a crazy stack of orders wouldn’t be the worse thing.
This year I’ll be making my first trip to the Indiana Comic Con. I’m looking forward to it, both to experience a new show and to see some old friends. And, since it’s a new place for me to visit, I’ve done another new con print. These things are expanding a bit, aren’t they?
I want to try some new things at my 2014 conventions. One of them is this: a new "premium" commission. I want to take a limited number of much more complicated pieces, colored in watercolor rather than marker. I’m only going to do a couple for each show, and you can either place an order or select out of the ones that I already have done.
To start, I’m trying some My Little Pony stuff. I draw the ponies a lot, but I haven’t had much of an opportunity to play with the backgrounds and those are a lot of fun. Also, I haven’t done watercolors in a long time, so it’s nice to start refreshing that skill. Here’s Twilight Sparkle as a premium commission. I’ve got a Zecora one on the drawing board that I’ll be showing soon, too. Both of them will be available at Connooga next month.
If you’re interested in getting one, give me a shout and let me know. I’ll certainly do a few through the mail. For these, 9×12 in full color, one character in an environment, I’m going to charge $125.
