Amazing Arizona! My Little Pony Friends Forever #2! East Bay Comic Con! Sac Con!

Hey Y'all!

Quick one today I've gotta post this and then draw some commissions before we head out to Arizona in a few hours for the my first convention of 2014!

Hope you guys are having a good 2014 so far. I've been way productive.

First things first--
Tomorrow!! Super excited to head back to Amazing Arizona. One of my favorite shows (I met my fiancĂ© at this show 2 years ago! Also met Chew's John Layman but that show but didn't get engaged to him.) Anyway, I'm gonna be sketching it up and selling prints and comics and sketchbooks. If you're in the area, come on out and see me. 

January 24-26, 2014
Phoenix Convention Center
100 N. Third St.
Phoenix, AZ 85004

“Tickets for the 2014 AMAZING ARIZONA COMIC CON are now ON SALE through the Phoenix Convention Center Box Office. We have a variety of ticket options for our awesome fans, making the convention affordable and fun for the whole family!

If you're not in the area, keep an eye on my twitter for a look at the sketches.

Also, if you're a kid 10 or under (or have a kid who's 10 or under with you) I'll be giving out free quick My Little Pony head sketches for an hour on Sunday... 

*My Little Pony- Hour of Power with artist Tony Fleecs- from 1-2pm on Sunday January 26, MLP artist will sketch your favorite Pony- From Rainbow Dash to Twilight Sparkle, and more! Better line-up early as this offer is extremely limited, good for kids 10 and under.
That's it for Amazing Arizona and that's it for January. Then in February....

This one's all done and off at the printer, kids. I'm super psyched about it. It's written by Jeremy Whitley (who I love. He writes Princeless.) Edits by the great Bobby Curnow and color flats by Lauren Perry (who now get's credit in the book in addition to the extravagant rate I pay her.) Covers by Amy Mebberson (my favorite Pony Artist, I think) and Lea Hernandez (her first Pony work and it's so awesome!) A team of awesome people and I think it's my best issue so far. 

Spoilers: It has Robo-Ponies, y'all.

The Cutie Mark Crusaders have done everything they can think of to get their cutie marks. But there’s one creature of chaos who might have some ideas they would never think of… Discord! When our pint-sized heroines start working with the unpredictable trickster, the results are bound to get unusual! Will Ponyville be able to survive their friendship?
