Alllllllrighty everyone! Time for a story! But first a story to preface the story.
Many moons ago, whilst browsing the blog section of a website I was a journalist for, I had stumbled upon an entree from a internet acquaintance regarding his copy of Halo 4, and how Amazon (or competing company--I don't remember who he had bought it through) had yet to deliver it to him. One or two weeks after the initial launch of the game, he was understandably quite frustrated with the company. Where was his copy? Why hadn't they delivered it yet? Why was Master Chief left to float around the galaxy in the butt piece of Forward Unto Dawn? These answers and more were left dangling in a passing breeze due to the lack of coordination of one company. Being a Halo connoisseur myself, I understood his pain. I am a pretty big fan of the series (I somehow even managed to get an unprovoked happy birthday from Halo's multiplayer announcer o

I suppose that I count my cat.Living alone is nice. In my humble opinion at least. It's empowering knowing that you are capable of doing it. Although it can get a bit lonely, I've even found myself talking to myself every so often to break the silence. I actually think I'm just thinking out loud, and have just become self-conscious about the thought of becoming a crazy person.

Not a brony was stirring, the premier was soon to come.
The laptops were set to streaming sites with care,
In hopes that Twily and her pony friends would soon be there.
The bronies were nestled all snug in their beds,
While the message--love and tolerance--echoed within their heads.
It would seem that these last six months, have taken a century,
We only want our ponies friends--so kind and so cutesy
A few hours later, my mind was at rest,
But ponies were still present, which one was best?
Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, maybe crazy Pinkie Pie,
Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, or even Derpy.
I sat and I pondered that last question there,
For each pony I love, to prefer one just seems unfair.
This decision is not simple, I surely cannot decide,
For they all have strengths and weaknesses, the last one, walleyed.
Magic abound, Twilight enters the scene,

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears.

The draconequus species (plural = draconequui) are an ancient, pan-dimensional race. Exactly how long they've been around is unclear, since clear records of them don't appear until after writing had been developed. Archaeologists speculate that they may have been misidentified as dragons in earlier analyses of prehistoric cave drawings; said drawings are still being studied.
Each draconequus is the embodiment of a universal concept*. All possess god-like magical powers, which they use to maintain the balance of their concepts in other dimensions. They exist in pairs of opposing concepts, which are perpetually at odds with each other. Certain Embodiments are inherently stronger than others; these would be the Embodiments of Life and Death, Time, and the four World-State Embodiments (order, chaos, prosperity, and armageddon).

When I started off, I got a tablet as "just a toy," not really planning on going very far with it. I would use it to do some random art stuff every now and then and that would be that.

Several months ago, I was contacted by a member of Starlight Studios, a game development group formed by the ex-developers of MLPOnline. In the aftermath of the MLPOnline C&D, most of the members had stuck around but decided to work on a new project, under a new name. They were in the process of recruiting new people for this new project, and I was one of them. I was originally brought on as a concept artist, but after a little while I was given the job of Level Designer. I can't talk about what it is that we've been working on, exactly, but we're going to start posting some teasers and art (Hopefully) pretty soon.
