As I've actually logged in here for a change, I thought I'd just pop up a note to say what I've been up to and where to find me.
Anime North and the MLP Fair this summer were a blast. It was great to meet some new collector friends and to get together with some old friends again. I'm looking forward to heading out to the next con, even though I have no idea yet when that will be. (Maybe not until G Anime in February?)
In the meantime, I've posted only a couple of things here on DA this summer. But I am updating my blog every week. A lot of the posts are dealing with customs and works-in-progress. Please check it out: www. NorthernElf
I'm just back from Anime North, the huge and amazing convention that took place this weekend in Toronto. If you haven't gone, you should. I swear, there is literally something for everyone there from anime and manga to gaming, cosplay, gothic lolita, dolls, toys, writing advice, comics, and just about anything else in geekdom. And this year, MLP was also a feature.
I put on two MLP themed panels - one on collecting the other on customizing. I also participated in the "Ask the Experts" panel as the MLP "Expert" and the FIM panel hosted by the enthusiastic and talented DJ Midli. I've got more info and pics about the whole thing on my blog
Once again this year I'm off to the MLP Fair. We're leaving in 10 days and I'm looking forward to it, now that things are getting finished. I've just posted some new customs, many of which will be travelling to Kentucky with me and hopefully travelling home with someone else afterward. I haven't posted my contest entry customs, though. Those will wait until after the Fair.
I've also started a blog at http://northernelfpony.blogspot.com/ . I know, I know, I'm not so good at the updating. But I'm using this blog as I would use a website, to promote my custom ponies and to show off what I've done in the past. I'll also be posting a page
Seeing as all my journal updates involve appolgies for not updating more frequently, I'm just not going to bother doing that anymore. I'm slow. I update twice a year, at best. You know it. I know it. It's time to accept it and move on with our lives.
(Can you imagine if I wrote a blog?) XD
Lucky for me, this update wasn't too painful as I'd taken quite a break from art between the last update and now. Not that I haven't been creating, but there hasn't been much in the "finished pieces" category. However, I am again ramping up for the MLP Fair (2010, in Kentucky this year) so I thought it best to update now, before I'm swamped in new
Hey, only 4 months since my last update, that's not bad.
Here we are less than a week before the annual MLP Fair and I've just posted the customs that I'll be bringing with me to sell (plus a few others.) I only decided to go to the Fair in May, so it's been a rush to get them done in time, but I'm pretty happy with the batch. I'm still working to finish my custom contest entry pony, but she'll be done before I go to bed tonight, one way or another.
I've also printed out a binder with ALL the pages of MLP customs that you see here to bring with me. It's interesting to look back and see how my art has progressed over the years (you all kn
