Doctor Who and Ponies. I ended the year in style.

I only took one commission for the holiday season, well two commissions for one person, and it was Doctor Who themed, so how could I resist?

Here is the Tenth Doctor hanging out with Charlotte and Rose, and the Tenth Doctor shopping for shoes with Jenny while a jealous Dalek looks on.

These were super fun to do 🙂

I also painted two of my nieces and my nephew as Ponies. Here we have Pardner, Chatterbox and Pokepal. I find it awesome that my three year old nephew is already a Brony. He specifically requested that his cutie-mark be a red hat.

I am going to be at Calgary Comic Expo this year and I will be offering ‘You as a Pony’ doodles again. They are going to be watercolour this time around, unless people desperately need a specific colour of marker. The watercolour ones are way more fun – and faster, too!

Thank you, Calgary!

I took a few photos, but not many. I was so busy! The pics will be posted ASAP and if any of you got a commission from me, whether a pony or otherwise, if you could scan it and send it to me that would be aweeesome!

😀 See you in two years. Can’t make it next year due to other obligations, sadly!

CCEE, here I come – next week

CCEE has posted their program book, which has a little picture of my artbook contribution in it, so I figure it’s officially safe to show it off. Please, if you’re going to CCEE, pick up one of the artbooks! Proceeds this year go to Make a Wish. Bring it to my table and I’ll sign it, and people who come by with an artbook will get a free postcard or trading card. I am at P09 in the writer/artist guest area, not in the Artist Alley, so come and find me!

The artbook piece is adobe photoshop and to accompany the original, I am very likely going to get a poster printed for the auction.

Hope to see you all in Calgary!

Calgary Comic Expo sneak peek!

This is the super super rough version of my submission to the artbook this year. I’m working on getting it done for the deadline and it is coming along just fine!

Expect more art to come. Sorry for the drought, I cannot wait until classes are done so I can do more sketches. I’ve been digging through my old sketchbooks and, man, I used to sketch a lot, so I’m going to channel that again in May for a sketch a day thing to get the creative juices going.

Finally! A new flyingarmadillo.com site

Now that I have WordPress tamed, here’s an official welcome to the new site!

This coming weekend I’ll be appearing at Calgary Comic Expo – look for me at table A19. I’ll have lots of goodies to sell, including these awesome postcards:

And I’ll also have some awesome little Ewok and Dragon charms for $5 each (Cat hair not included):

Because this was lost when I moved the old site, I will be participating in the 501st TK project and making an awesome helmet for charity.

To find out more, visit the 501st TK blog 🙂 Welcome to the new site! I hope you like it!
