HalflingPony's Profile Picture
J. Brown
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
My college career focused on the subtle science and precise art of computer programming. As much as I enjoyed the field, I soon tired of merely instructing rectangular grids of tiny lights to turn on and off to show ever-changing images of "buttons" and "icons".

While desperately seeking gainful and fulfilling employment, I stumbled into a shop where I discovered the exciting field of CNC machining. I found I could use my years of training in computer science in wonderful ways I never thought possible. Now I spend my days equipping giant robots with razor-sharp weapons and instructing them to cut through slabs of metal in interesting patterns. When the uprising occurs, I'll probably be among the first to die. :D

In my spare time I study volumes of history about worlds that never existed and watch television shows about realms that will never be. Occasionally, inspiration strikes and I create art and stories based on these or my own imagined worlds.

You can also follow me on Tumblr or on Twitter.
I got some awesome news several days ago. Unfortunately, this was just as ATG started, so I've been a bit slow to pass it on. Let's fix that, shall we?

A few months ago, :iconlyokoheros: approached me and asked permission to translate one of my earliest popular comics, Spikes Fortune, into Polish.

I'll admit, it's been long enough since I drew it that parts of the art on that comic give me a major cringe fit, but people seem to like it well enough regardless. If a group of translators feel it's worth spending their time to inflict it on their countrymen, I'm certainly not going to tell them "no". :)

It took a little while, but the translation group K-Archiwa-Canterlotu (I'm told the name means "
Royal Canterlot Archives") has finally completed work on the comic. You can find the results of their efforts here: Skarb Spike'a (Spike's Fortune PL) by Lyokoheros

I'm honored these guys felt that my comic was worth their efforts to translate. That said, I don't read Polish so if you, dear reader, can read it and the translation is actually an elaborate ruse to make me link to a comic insulting your dear mother, feel free to give me a heads up. ;)

You're American? Why did I think you were British?
HalflingPony Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Good question. :D

I am rather fond of a great deal of British literature and television, so perhaps some of that influences my turns of phrase and spelling choices from time to time. Though, given the source and age of most of them, I expect any such influences would tend to make me sound rather like an elderly English gentleman. ;)
