ponycycle asked: The pre-orders are for pickup at EQLA, right?
Actually these preorders are for shipped copies. It seems like there is enough demand that we’ll be able to sell leftover copies/second print copies. So if you can’t make it to EQLA, fire a message off to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The EQLA copies will be first come first serve. If you want to save the shipping and guarantee yourself a first printing (and get it signed by the amazing Ponywise perhaps?), table H3 in the vendor’s hall by Operations is where you can buy it at the con.
Thanks for the question!
Mine’s Got Rocks in It - Earth Pony Zine!
The time is almost here. The amazing fiend tag-team of ponywise and sofas&quills, came together to create something amazing. They brought together a massive group of artists and created a fanzine that’s going to be on sale at EQLA. Here’s the official description -
“MGRII is a high-quality earth-pony-themed art zine! With submissions ranging from comics and visual art to poetry and prose, and a seriously talented bunch of well-known contributors, this book is the ultimate MLP art piece. The print run will be very limited, so EQLA is the best place to snag a copy and meet several of the artists!”
I have had the pleasure of watching this entire project come together over the past few months and believe me when I say it is absolutely stunning. So much time and effort has gone into this book and it really shows. They are selling them $20 each at EQLA and the first print run is limited to only 100 copies. This is a full art book with 68 beautiful pages. It is features music, art, comics, short stories made by a bunch of crazy talented people. Seventeen of AF’s finest contributed to this project!
If you’re not going to EQLA then hope is not lost. Make some noise! We’d love to do another print run but we need to know the demand is there. I’m sure everyone involved would love to continue with this series in the future and I’ve already heard some really cool ideas.
Big thanks to everyone involved for the amazing work!

texasuberalles asked: Bless you all for the Westia Project; people like you are the reason I never despair for this fandom no matter how many scumbags and jerks try to stick to it. This really was one of the sweetest things I've ever seen.
Thank you so much for your kind words! The fanart for Westia was meant to be an outpouring of encouragement for a young artist whose creativity and enthusiasm we truly support. We hope that Westia’s creator understands that our fan art for her was meant as a sincere gesture of appreciation for her character.
To Westia’s creator, we hope that you keep drawing and writing, and that we’ll see even more from you in the future. Please take care and never stop being creative!
Anonymous asked: Are any of the Art-Fiends not visual artists? If so, what other types of art do you guys produce?
AF has a lot of really talented members from lots of different fields.
For example, in terms of audio, AWorldofSound, Griffinilla and Batongmalaque are all fantastic, both as musicians and as composers. SpiderJewel is a voice actress of immense skill and YeNguyen is a beautiful writer of prose!
