Have you ever wondered why there have been so many strong earthquakes recently? Well, recently meaning the past few years.
People seem to think that something is going wrong with the Earth and that someone is responsible for it. While that is true in many ways, earthquakes aren't one of those things.
There are 2 reasons why there are more earthquakes now than a few years ago.
Reason 1: Media Coverage
As civilization expands, we get news from provinces previously unreachable. If there were a strong earthquake in a small Chinese town somewhere and nowhere, you wouldn't have heard of it in the past. But nowadays, these things are reported. In other words, the number of earthquakes didn't increase, but the number of earthquakes that are reported!
Reason 2: Chain Reactions
Apart from the effect of wider media attention, the frequency of strong earthquakes really has increased ever since 2004. Do you remember? It was the year of the great Sumatra-Andaman earthquake that

This is the story of a young man, who's name was Anon. He was a young prodigy in his school, excelling in academics. He was a young cheerful man, who had good heart. However, he did not always focus on these aspects of himself, and even had a "mysterious", even "dark side". For the most important thing to him was his girlfriend. She was a beautiful young woman, who also good heart. For this reason, Anon, loved her unconditionally and even said that he would "die for her." Like any love story that has been told, this one had it's misfortune's. The girl's parents had never approved of their relationship. In fact, they despised the young man. They tried to what ever they could to keep their daughter from Anon. But the two youths stayed together. However, her parents disapproval made her very sad. This filled Anon with rage. How dare they sadden his love! She knew of his "dark side" and what he might do, but always managed to calm him and dismiss
I miss ya, mate.Dear friend,I miss ya, mate.4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
when we stumbled over each other in the Australian outback in 99, I was young and eager to explore the wild on my own, something you had already achieved long before. I did not know your name, nor your face, and you, ever so humble, appreciated that more than I knew. With me, you were able to be an ordinary man.
Camp Cooee turned upside down with you around, as it sometimes did, despite its location way out in the bush, nestled between the trees. We became friends and brothers in arms for a brief time, and despite my inability to explain the theory of relativity to someone as hyper as you, you still perked up and listened with a bright shine in your eyes when I told you that all the world and its inhabitants are made from stardust. It was the same shine you always had when we talked about wildlife.
I'm thankful to have learned a great deal from you about the outback, survival methods, how to deal with snakes and other dangerous wildlife. It has been my honor and privilege

Before you do that, however, I'd appreciate it if you took the time to read through this post, and any update posts (to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings).
I do reserve the right to turn down a commission if it is something that I do not feel suits me and my style of art, or if for some other reason I do not feel comfortable with the request.

Tracking Number, Delivery Confirmation, AND Insurance MANDATORY for ALL orders. This will raise shipping costs, but it will give all of us peace-of-mind if anything happens. A Custom-made item is too precious to lose in the mail.
Tracking number enables us to see the package as it travels through checkpoints from one post office to another. (Proof that I shipped it.)
Delivery Confirmation requires a house-hold resident to sign a paper upon arrival to prove that it was delivered. (So you can't say to me "I didn't get my item, make me another!")
Insurance covers the material cost of the package if it is lost or damaged during transit ONLY. Once you (or a resident) signs the delivery confirmation, it is YOU

So I wasn't able to find the motivation and didn't start working on these cards till sometime last week. I'm still accepting requests, but the likelihood of me finishing over 50 is low. I'm haphazardly working in the order that I received the request, but don't bet on it.

I thought the poster behind her was real, but it's photoshop. So they're trying to raise money to make that poster a reality. Not much time left for it because Brony Con's next week. Every bit helps and hope it all works out.
In other news. I'm NOT going to Canterlot Gardens. I wish I was, but issues come up. I need that cleared up.
People have been wondering how they could get my buttons. Um, I'm working on that and I will see how it goes during Brony Con. Don't worry I can always make more. Just hang on.

Since human beings harnessed the secret of fire the natural world has been seen by many
only in terms of how best it can be exploited of its abundant riches. It’s amazing now to
look upon the desert sands of the Arab lands and know that this place, the cradle of earliest
civilization, was once known as “The Fertile Crescent.” All Europe was once one great forest –
until all those trees were needed to create the naval armadas of dueling empires. Only the
Earth’s natural forces, like earthquakes, have been more destructive and wasteful than humanity.
“The Romantics” were a movement of poets, painters, philosophers and others who launched
the first Great Dissent against the idea of our Earth as being only a resource to be used up.
