I’ll be there with my tablemate Mattie. I have so many new things and can’t wait to show them to all of you!
We’ll be at table 507 in the vendor area.
I’ll be in Vancouver Washington Friday August 29th through Monday September 1st in the artist alley at Kumoricon.
I have some new goodies that I haven’t been able to upload yet but here’s a WIP shot!
See you this weekend!
After seeing the positive feedback on my “Bad Timberwolf” design I thought I would do a little research and see if there had been any kind of 11th doctor pony in the background of the show and if so, Who he was traveling with. I love the Rose storyline in Doctor Who, so when I saw Rose Luck and Doctor Hooves kicking around I KNEW it was up to me to create something for them.
I was able to locate what the MLP Wiki calls “Raggedy Doctor” Which also points to a shirt at the site We Love Fine, that had three earth ponies labeled IX, X & XI, which was the pony in this design. His companion in the screen shot here….
After some more Twili-style research I found her name was Sea Swirl. It seemed too perfect. A sea, afterall, is just a bigger Pond right? Pond referring to The Doctor’s companion Amy Pond. I wanted to include things I thought were important about Amy, her time as a companion and Rory, the last Centurion. I found it interesting that even though there were some scary monsters lurking in corners the 11th always seemed to have a smile on his face. Since I included “Mad Pony with a box” in Gallifreyan in my first design I wanted to use the language again but felt that “Bowties are cool” felt more fitting this time around. In hindsight I think I should have used “Allon-sy” or another 10-ism in my first design but I digress!
I finished the piece this past Thursday and put it up for sale on my TeePublic site.
On Saturday the Official David Tennant Facebook site shared my design!
As of right now it has over 3,000 likes and 500 shares!!! I cannot believe they shared my little old design. I literally did a spit take and got water on my computer monitor! I hope they saw “Bad Timberwolf” too, being that is the David Tennant pony after all, with his Rose.
So what an exciting weekend!
While I was at Cherry City Comic Con last weekend I fell in love with pixel bead art so I thought I would give it a shot myself. I’ve also been sculpting gaming inspired earrings and they are now available in my shop.
I keep finding new things that I love that I’m almost thinking of changing the name of my site to Christa’s Hodgepodge. Not really but I’ll be back to sculpting and illustrating next week I assure you.
If there is anything you want me to pixel-ize let me know! I’m already working on Pokemon, Final Fantasy and more Legend of Zelda.
