    My Art (and many others) Immortalized on Fabric

    Over on Twitter, Canterlot Radio shared this pic of My Little Pony fabric. See that “EVER” and the picture of Twilight Sparkle in the center of it?

    I was reading on StarWars.com about the new Star Wars comic by Jason Aaron and John Cassady, and came across this: That’s an interesting thought.

    Wednesday, I had the opportunity to go teach at Hawken School for a day. I was doing a presentation/workshop on the history of comics and how to make them.
