I’m having a frustrating night so I’m drawing my OC ponies.
Cinders, I don’t know what it is about you. But my heart hurts for you. Aren’t you lonely big boy?
VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: Clover Coin Designs can not make it to Bronycon 2014.
We had everything prepared, purchased a booth, got supplies ready, booked a hotel. But life has a funny way of making things turn for the worst.
It was a year of planning to do this, we even went to Bronycon2013 just to promote ourselves and our table at next year’s convention. It’s a very heavy heart that we have to back out now, just before the convention takes place.
We have been receiving so many wonderful messages about people excited to see us there, to purchase our artwork and goods. We couldn’t wait to see you all and meet you in person! I’m actually in tears writing this right now, haha.
If some of you follow my personal blog, Doodleloser, you’ll know we had a car accident on the way to MLP-MSP in June. After long and rather painful paper work sessions with the insurance company we still haven’t gotten the money from the totaled car. That means we still haven’t purchased a new car to drive to Baltimore.
That isn’t the biggest issue though. We had a rough budget of $5000 - $6000 to go to Baltimore and make a great trip out of it. My design work job didn’t pay me in June like it has the past 2 years. There was some sort of “miscalculation” in their departments and they have to delay payments to September. This is the money I get in BULK and use to pay monthly rent/bills/so on. I budget this money VERY STRICTLY to survive on. This was the money I was using for Bronycon this year. I did not get that money and will not be getting it for a while it seems. We thought we could maybe even use the car insurance pay out money to fund our trip and even rent a car to go to Baltimore… But the insurance company isn’t sure when the date we will get paid.
Due to everything that has happened… We can’t safely plan to go to Baltimore this year. We were so excited to see you all, to meet up with so many other artists, we wish there was something we could do… But it’s just too close to the convention to properly recover from.
We want to take a moment to thank everyone who supported us. Who wished us well. Who wanted to see us there. Thank you SO much. We’re going to try and prepare again, try and see if we can’t make it next year some how. I just wish there was more we could do.
Bring back the smoke…
Bring back the darkness…
Bring back the King.
A new story is unraveling.
JAG DON’T LET THEM GET YOU
Starcrossed and Pearline making a run for it from the Timber Wolves!
"I-I don’t know, y-you know I don’t know," Hawthorn looked up at the sky, where the stars shone bright. “I’ve just been away so long! What if nopony remembers me?”
Lemon Sip laughed softly and she nudged the stallion. “Silly, of course they’ll remember! A lot happened while you were gone, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have your place among us. It just means you need someone to show you around, and I’m just the mare for the job!”
The stallion smiled at her enthusiasm; she never struggled to cheer him up when he came back from his longer trips, and that, he greatly appreciated. Ponyville had changed drastically this time around and made his return tougher than usual. “Has she been around lately?”
She chuckled. “Yes, yes she has.”
Harvest Tale is really looking forward to seeing somepony again…
I’ve really missed drawing a lot of my OC ponies, this pony in particular I missed a lot myself. It feels great to be back again and drawing so actively. I hope we all get to see more of each other!
