The main purpose of this journal is to replace the out-of-date one.
That said, there is some news:
My printing service had its first successful test thanks to Grennadder
who bought 60 prints. Final prices are still being hammered out, but are very competitive for what you get. I use thick photo-quality paper, not that cheap thin stuff. The inks are pigment, not dye, which makes them last longer. Colors are highly accurate to monitor RGB; no need to convert to CMYK. Prints can be any "standard" paper size up to 17x25 (inches). Interested? Shoot me a message!
The Traveling Pony Museum
has just completed a mass-invite of artists. Hopefully this will lead to a bunch of new displays this year. If you've grown bored with our current offering, do check us out again at a con near you and we might surprise you this year. If you make
art and want us to showcase it, get in touch via a group note!
Speaking of the Museum, I was supposed to make "drawing collages" similar to this one
for SAAC and BronyCon '13. They're long overdue. If someone would like to take a stab at it, message me and I'll get you the files. When you're done, post it to dA and it will be featured in MLP-FIM-TPM
School is progressing. Lecture prep is easier this semester for some reason. This is a good thing. MLP-VectorClub
is still fun. Helping prospective members improve their vectors is highly rewarding. That said, it does take quite a bit of time, that could go into hobbies such as programming (spreadsheets for the Museum, and PIC processors for personal electronics projects), making my own vectors, video games, ... I haven't played console games by myself since New Year's :/.
Until next time, cheers!mewtwo-EX
