Journal History

Hey everyone!

Well, I got back from Bronycon 2015 and in the words of Rainbow Dash: it... was... AWESOME!

I met so many talented artists friends of mine, made new ones, saw some amazing panels and definitely will be going next year and actually am trying to actively get some fellow DA artist friends of mine to join with me!

Some amazing artists and well as familiar faces I met were:
SilFoe
DarkFlame75
GSphere
Earthsong9405
shottsy85
kaizerin
FuyusFox
briannacherrygarcia - I got to hug her, she's really cool!
NekoCrispy
HobbsMeerkat

(and maybe a few more, but the above are those I remember distinctly from Bronycon off the top of my head I think I've fainted. )

In addition, I got to meet several other artists for the first time, such as:
Glacier Clear (a super talented and sweet girl at the Roan RPG booth)
Jowybean, it's amazing to see how far he has come!
Geeflakes / Bally-Vhern, a French artist who I happened to bump into by accident, and apparently the first 3 people to meet her get a free drawing.  I will be uploading that later!

I believe those were the standout names to me, I'll post a 'report' on my Bronycon experience later!  But to cut to the chase, after coming back I caught a cold from one of my roommates on the last night there; he only had the sniffles while I ended up stuck in bed for 4-5 straight days.  During which, I was offered a contract job at several schools to help them prep for the 'New School Year', which I started today and was a lot of fun.

In addition, I actually have several comics in process by many different artists, a brief run down of them:

Gray-day - Working currently on Of Kings and Changelings, with a few follow-up comics after
MagneticSkye - Working on a sequel Equestria Girls comic, immediately after the 2nd Equestria Girls movie
dahliabee - Working on a mini-comic of one of my Equestria Expanded characters
Bluecoffeedog - Working on a mini-comic of one of my Equestria Expanded characters
SilFoe - Working on a non-MLP comic (Lords of Soverign) that I had attempted to start last year, though was ripped off by the company who violated their contract but was able to get my money back.
alexacana - Working to illustrate 'Season 2' of my Equestria Expanded storyline, in its entirety
Artemisaw - Working to illustrate 'Season 1' of my Equestria Expanded storyline, in its entirety
Psychoon - Working on a mini-comic of one of my Equestria Expanded characters

Also, I'm working semi-close with Horrible People Productions (the creators of Twilight's Secret Shipfic Folder) and got their approval to make an Equestria Expanded-themed TSSSF deck.  The following artists I have gotten on board to work their individual talents on the flavor of the cards, which I believe I will sell physical copies during Bronycon 2016.

MingRaine - Illustrating a possible 'Neighpon' themed deck


I know, a LOT going on, right? Almost hard to keep track of it all!  These are just the major projects, with some 'one off' single illustrations I'm working on with some other artists, but wanted to share what I've been up to.  I have not been idle, just a lot going on with moving back to Florida, going to Comic Con (in Tampa, FL) and then IMMEDIATELY after flying to Bronycon was all very exhausting but super fun!  Well, it's late and I have to be at work tomorrow, I'll write a more detailed report then!
