Blogs and Stuff

Thu Jan 30, 2014, 6:22 PM


I don't spend a lot of time on deviant art, but if anyone wants to know where else I am online…

I post on my  tumblr almost every day, and once a week on my blogspot.  Deviantart is more for special occasions. :)

I also have a comic that updates on Mondays, at Dumm Comics!

Bye!

Amethyst Princess of Gemworld

Fri Aug 30, 2013, 8:20 PM


Haven't updated the journal in quite a while, figured it was time  
All of the Amethyst shorts are now officially up on DC Comics youtube page.  If you enjoyed them, please leave comments there.

I'm hoping to start another storybook soon, it's not a sequel to Billie, BUT it's some original characters I've drawn before, and I'm really excited to be drawing them again.  

Sometimes I still scribble Amethyst for fun, follow my blogspot to catch those.


Autumn is creeping up soon, hope everyone had a lovely summer! :D

I'll be at the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle,
Saturday March 2nd ONLY!
TABLE K-20

Steph Laberis is letting me crash her table that day.  She will have cute prints and sketchbooks.
I will have what is left of the "Tater Tots" sketchbooks, copies of "Billie the Unicorn", and some original sketchcards for sale.  I will not be taking commissions, sorry!  I'm hoping to get ten more made before ECCC, some of the ones above have already been claimed.
ECCC is pretty cool, glad to be a part of it again!

How Billie the Unicorn was published.

Mon Aug 13, 2012, 3:28 AM


I actually wrote a lengthy blog post last year about the process of getting Billie published.  The beginnings of Billie actually started back in 2002.
Here's a link to the blog post, scroll down a bit past the Comic Con 2011 wrap up  to get to a wordy post that has some old scribbles.

potatofarmgirl.blogspot.com/20…

I don't think there is one way to get a book or a film made.  There are many different roads, but it always helps to get your art out there.

Questions about Billie

Tue Jul 31, 2012, 11:35 AM


Hi everyone!

I've been getting a lot of notes lately asking how I illustrated "Billie the Unicorn", and how I got it published.  I've been super busy at work, so I'm really bad at answering emails.
Tonight I'll attempt getting a blog post together to help answer any questions you all have. (I'll link to it here.)
Thanks again for the interest and support!

Emerald City Comic Con!

Sun Mar 25, 2012, 10:07 PM


Hello!  Sorry for the slow updates lately, but I just finished a huge project at work.  Slowly, I'm having more free time to go for walks, sleep, and see friends again!  Good times!
I'm excited to take a break and visit my home state, for the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle Washington!
I'll have some "Billie the Unicorn" books, buttons, and a small new sketchbook called "Tater Tots"!
To learn more about what is in the sketchbook, please check my blogspot potatofarmgirl.blogspot.com/20…
Here's the cover of the book:

Sorry to anyone who doesn't have a Mac, iPad, or iPhone.  I know this was a big issue with my Girly Poo app too.
But if you happen to have any of the previous devices, the interactive "Billie the Unicorn" book is in the iTunes store!  It's at a discount today!   I'm still finding hidden animations and secrets.  The programmers and animators at Mobad went to town sneaking in as much as they could.  
Yay!

I animated this.  Insane color help from :iconprismageek:  Maybe I'll be able to put up the wing animation cycle in the future.
This is not Supergirl internet.   But she'll see you next spring!  I'm also helping out on some other shorts.  It sure was nice to get to draw the Titans again, and then they ate my life and beat me up in the face.  Yay DC Nation!
