Prior to Canterlot Gardens I was 199% certain that October was going to be an easy-going month of relaxing and playing video games and DEFINITELY not working on more pony-related stuff.
But, as previously pointed out, I am a dumb-head and my head is dumb! I had an incredible time getting to visit friends and share in wall-to-wall pony adventure (and try some incredible beers at local restaurants!) at Canterlot Gardens. But now I'm back and October is proving to be one of my most ridiculously busy months in terms of pony-related projects.
First of all, thanks to EVERYONE who came by my table at Canterlot, whether to buy something or just hang out and talk to me! And holy cats! Thanks to everyone who brought me amazing gifts and assorted amazingness! I am humbled and constantly surprised by how good and kind you are, my friends, and I can only hope that I measure up to the high bar you set for generosity. It means the world to me and I can't possibly thank you enough.
Also I want to thank (again and again and again!) Peter New and Andrea Libman for allowing me to supply the art for their autograph booths and for just being so nice to me in general! I'm in awe of how wonderful the cast and crew of this show are and how they exemplify all the same values of kindness and friendship!
Hopefully soon I will post pics of all my swag, gifts, purchases, and wonderful loot I came away with. For the moment, I want to focus on one particular pile of goodies from my friend Rhiss who works at Bethesda, the company behind Fallout 3 and New Vegas, The Elder Scrolls series, and the brand-spanking new stealth RPG adventure Dishonored (which is currently sitting on my shelf insisting I finish Borderlands 2 so I can start playing!)
Behold! I was given a super-giant sized New Vegas poster, Mojave Express and NCR patches, a Brotherhood of Steel statue, a blind bag custom of my OC pony wearing a Fallout vault suit, and an ACTUAL bottle of Nuka Cola (Bottled for the release of Fallout 3 in 2008 so it will have to remain whole and ungobbled!)
Best of all, and something I can't stop freaking out over, is a copy of my Bound By Derp comic
signed by the Skyrim development team! SERIOUSLY!
HOLY CATS! I can't stop fangirl-ing! Of all the things that could happen this is the BEST POSSIBLE THING!
Thank you so much, my dear, for making my day, my week, month, year, epoch, everything! And thanks again to everyone who visited me at CG and everyone who continues to stop by here and offer me support and friendship as I continue to pony all the ponies!
As for upcoming stuff, I will have three new projects from We Love Fine being released this week as well as a couple other other big projects that I will announce as soon as I'm allowed to! For now, take care and be sure to enjoy October and the leadup to the best holiday of them all! HALLOWEEN! Er...Nightmare Night!
