The Rainbow Dash Band - Remastered by kefkafloyd
The Rainbow Dash Band - Remastered
Book of Dreams was one of Steve Miller's most popular albums, and its iconic album art by Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse was a big part of that. The rainbow-winged pegasus grew into an icon for the band, and anyone who sees it will remember fondly the sounds of Jet Airliner, Swingtown, Jungle Love, Winter Time, The Stake, and more. Rainbow Dash fills in for the iconic pegasus in this ponified version of a rock and roll classic.

You might be thinking "Wait, I've seen this before!" and you'd be right. I drew the original Rainbow Dash Band back in 2011 when season two was barely. A while back, I had suffered a major data loss on my primary workstation. Although 95% my stuff was backed up (thankfully!), I had lost one or two original versions of some things I did. This piece was one of the few originals that bit the dust, which meant no high res prints to hang on my wall.

While I am not a person to go back and re-do stuff that's already done, even if I hadn't lost this particular piece I probably would have given it the remastering treatment anyway. It had always bugged me that I kind of half-assed the original Rainbow Dash Band. I didn't do the piping on the backing circle, I didn't do the backing circle's colors or clouds right, I didn't add all the extra lighting effects that the original had, and most shameful, I didn't hand-letter a proper title. If I was going to redo it, I was going to do it right, damn it. I'm most proud of the piping, which adapts the FiM pegasus wings in place of Kelley and Mouse's iconic beetles. While it's not exactly perfect, it's a lot better than the zero piping I did before. The new version is more respectful and true to the original classic, which is an inspiration to me as an artist.

Bongiorno. I do a lot of things. Sometimes I put them here.

For my day job, I am a production designer and general do-everything person for a prepress software company. I produce all of our artwork and graphic design for printed materials as well as user interface. I also assist customers with workflow, press, and proofing problems for offset and digital. I also test and help develop my company's RIP and workflow products, in addition to tending to 1,000+ hardware installations. When you design something, it's my job to help your printer make it happen.

When I'm not doing any of that, I'm probably out photographing airplanes or other subjects. I also do freelance graphic design, and I enjoy drawing and painting in my spare time.

Hey everybody,

BronyCon is just over two weeks away! It's a really big show, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all again! My table, 212, is in a convenient area and you'll definitely want to take home something inspirational.

Compared to last year, I'll have a lot of new material in a wide variety of sizes. Whether you want a mini print or a wall-covering 17x25, I'll have all of my poster designs for you to buy. Plus, I will never run out of stock, because I'll have my Epson 3880 on site! Compared to last year I'll have double the amount of prints available. So if you want something, odds are I will have it. I'm also thinking of bringing badge conversion kits for the mini prints, if people are interested in that.

Items like buttons will be available, with some new designs as well as button packs where you can get all the designs for a low price.

Don't forget to see my panel, Being a Professional Con Artist, which is at 12:30PM on Sunday, August 3rd! I'll be discussing the process of actually creating your art to sell at shows. If you wanted to learn how to create art to sell without blowing your life savings, it's the place you'll want to be.
