Peter New and Patty at Trotcon 2013 by PixelKitties Peter New and Patty at Trotcon 2013 by PixelKitties
I do quite a bit of art for the voice of Big Macintosh, one Mr. Peter "A Cool Hat For Every Occasion" New. Trotcon 2013, however, was an extra-special occasion! Not only did I get to make a fancy new image of Big Mac, but I had the honor of including the OC for a beautiful, wonderful young lady named Patty. Patty suffers from a rare form of childhood cancer called "neurobastoma." She had a special request to meet Mr. New while he was in the area. We teamed up to provide Patty with lots of art and pony-related goodies, including Peter's official autograph card featuring Patty and Mac delivering that sweet, sweet Sweet Apple Cider to the convention!

This was one of the most fun and rewarding pieces I've had an opportunity to work on. Patty is an amazing and amazingly strong young woman and I hope she knows that she's an inspiration to Peter, myself, and so many others.

I need to make a proper Trotcon journal, thanking all the wonderful folks I met and spent time with over last weekend. It was an incredibly warm, fun, and successful weekend and I find myself already looking forward to Trotcon 2014!

LMAO! This is funny! What a crazy way to combine real life & fantasy! Looks like the Apples forgot to load up 1 barrel! And only Miss Patty can get it up to Big Macintosh in time for the convention! LOL! Go Big Macintosh! You've got it!

What a sweet & thoughtful gesture for a deserving young lady. I hope she's happy. I bet she made you & Mr. New very happy as well! :)

She really is an inspiration. So much courage and strength at so young an age. Puts a lot of things in perspective. I'm very proud and honored to make art for such an amazing young lady!

Very nice!
And aww.. that is really sweet... I can really see the adventure (or misadventure) that can be spurned from this one image! To go through what she goes through is something many of us won't ever have to experience... and she is also that one reminder of how lucky we are with what we have, no matter how much life tramples us into the mud...

My day to day irritations and troubles seem so minor compared to the trials faced by kids like Patty. They're a thousand times stronger and more profoundly courageous than I could ever hope to be.

Sadly it is because they have to be a thousand times stronger and more courageous... but that strength is apparent in such dire times and with such dire conditions such as what they go through.
Every other problem we face in life, like you said, it is trivial by comparison... but you know what? If they already have such strength and courage summoned already, then what excuse do we have NOT to be able to summon at least a portion of that strength, courage, and determination in ourselves when it comes to our much more minor issues in life?

We all have our little storms to sail through in life... no matter how strong the winds are or how high the waves crest, we just have to remember that our storms in comparison are just ripples in a pond compared to the tempests that kids such as Patty have to endure... and they will, for as long as it takes them.

Between his little helper and the rope, I think he's got this under control! Although, I have to say, panicked-looking Big Mac is pretty adorable!
