A few months ago, I had the honor of making a motion comic/animation for the supremely talented Ryan Smith (lead guitarist of Soul Asylum and lead singer of the Melismatics). The video is for Ryan and his wife's side project, Ryan and Pony, and the song is called Fast As I Can. It was a lot of work, but I had a whole lot of fun making this, and it would mean a lot to me if you guys could give this a watch if you have time.

The video can be found here:

Thank you, as always, for looking and for your continued support of my art. :)

I know I'm probably a dork for getting so excited about things, but I'm really excited about this! A few days ago, WeLoveFine decided to feature my shirts on their website! I have my own fancy little banner, and you can ask me questions about my art and stuff... (but you can do that here, too!)

I've struggled my entire life doing horrible graphic design jobs that I completely hated, like annual reports for banks and faxes for vaccine places. I even had to personify a colostomy bag once and make a cartoon about it.

Anyway, I know I sound like a broken record, but I just want to thank all of you guys who have looked at my art, commented on it, favorited it, and supported me through all of this.

Here's my feature page banner from WLF:

And here is the link if you guys want to see it, ask me any questions or just buy yourself some pony stuff.

I'm also going to be having some shirts that aren't pony coming in the near future, and I'll post more about those when they go up on the site!

Thanks again for all of your support!

They can be found, as always, though my WLF artist's page:

I've been holding off on writing this journal entry until it was 100 percent official, because I didn't want to jinx it. As of today, I am officially in the League of Artists at WeLoveFine. My profile, and my shirts, can be found here:


I want to just thank all of you who have supported me in my artistic endeavors over the years. I read every single comment and it keeps me going, so thank you, all of you.

I'll be making more shirts in the future, so stay tuned! And thank you all again!

I just wanted to apologize to you all about the flood of Power Rangers images that I posted recently. I entered a Power Rangers Tee Shirt design contest a few weeks ago over at WeLoveFine and the voting just started on the 18th of February. I didn't want to upload my designs until the contest actual was open for rating. So, don't worry, in a few days, your regularly scheduled program of me drawing ponies and anime stuff will resume.

I didn't know very much about the power rangers when I entered this contest, save what I learned from the first Power Rangers SNES games, which I LOVED. I decided to enter this contest to challenge myself and work outside of my comfort zone. I replayed the SNES game and recalled some of the episodes of power rangers that my next door neighbor used to put on when I would babysit him (he was a HUGE fan of the green ranger). Then I sat down to draw and four tee shirt designs came out. :)

If any of you would like to vote on the shirts, information can be found here, in this deviation: fav.me/d5vhra0

I, of course, appreciate all of your ratings on the shirts, as well as all the comments, favorites, follows and all the other fuzzy warm forms of encouragement you've given me over the past two years.

I sometimes get overwhelmed with replies on images and can't respond quickly enough, and for that I apologize. I just want to let you all know that I read every single message and you all make me feel like a rockstar. So, thank you!
