Greetings, folks!

Everfree Northwest will be here before you know it (about a week and a half of this writing), and you can meet me there! I'll be at table #74, with my usual assortment of prints, buttons, and the new keyrings!

After Everfree, I am also confirmed for two other conventions in the near future:

Grand Brony Gala in Tampa, Florida on July 10-12 and TrotCon in Columbus, Ohio on July 17-19. Other conventions are in the applications phase and if I'll be showing up somewhere else, you'll be sure to hear about it. EQLA and Nightmare Nights Dallas are probables, as well as local conventions in the Boston area.

Unfortunately, I was waitlisted by Bronycon and unless someone cancels and I come up on the list, the odds of me having a table are very slim. This will be the first Bronycon I'll miss since 2012, so if you want to pick up some of my stuff, you will have to do it at other conventions!

This is also true of Bound Together as well. Bronies for Good will not have a table, though they are currently working on another arrangement to have the book available at the convention. If we have more information, I will post and let people know. We may also have another online sale for Bound Together in the future. Now that all the preorders are fulfilled we have a good idea of what it takes to send out books, so stay tuned if you missed preorders and can't get to a convention. It was nice to see the Magicon preview posted on EqD, which got a lot of hits and views. Remember, all the proceeds after the printing costs go to Against Malaria Foundation. The project is already well in the black and every book sold means more lives saved.

Thoughts and Such


Now that some time has passed, I feel I can comment about the recent Playboy article that featured myself and others. Zarom, the fellow who wrote the article, was a kind and gracious interviewer. When he first approached me, I noticed that he had a nice camera (a Canon C300, IIRC) and we just chatted a bit. He asked if I wanted to be interviewed, and i agreed. We talked about a number of subjects, including the convention itself, what my current favorite shows were, what I did for a living, my opinion of ponies, et cetera. He used only a fraction of the interview as actual quotes in the article, but there are bits and pieces of the information I gave him sprinkled throughout the text. I did not know it was for Playboy until I asked at the very end "So, what is this for?" and he told me. Needless to say I was a bit surprised. Definitely something to put into my pile of ignominious distinctions, that's for sure. I appreciate the many kind comments from people about the article, and I certainly did not expect it to get the attention it did.

I don't take this too super seriously, even though I've been in and out of this particular fandom for years now. It's nothing new to me—fandoms come and go. I've been involved in too many to see it as something more than something to spend my free time on. If this is your first fandom (and for a lot of people, it is) I would suggest you take it slow and not too seriously. Don't spend so much time worrying about what crap is canon, or what someone else thinks. There will always be new fandoms, and you might run into familiar faces as you move from place to place. Be excellent to each other.
MagiCon Ho! - Bound Together Preview by kefkafloyd
MagiCon Ho! - Bound Together Preview
Page 1 of the 8-page leading comic in the anthology Bound Together! This comic was a collaboration by :iconjowybean: and myself. Jowy wrote the story and illustrated it, while I lettered and edited the script and story. It was great working with Jowy and you can see the whole thing in Bound Together! Pick it up at your favorite local convention. Preorders have been closed but you never know, we may take more mail orders in the future.

The next convention you'll be able to get it at is Trotcon, and we'll have it at Bronycon too, hopefully. :)

Hi everyone!

I'll be at BABScon in San Francisco this weekend. Come by and wish me a happy birthday on Saturday, April 4 (the same day as premiere day) at table A1. I'll have an assortment of prints, buttons, and BRAND NEW KEYCHAINS for you to buy!

Plus, you should make sure to pick up a copy of Bound Together. I'll even sign it for you. :)
Mane Six Keyrings by kefkafloyd
Mane Six Keyrings
These are the first round of designs for keyrings for conventions. The first are, of course, the Mane Six. I've done them all in a flat monochrome style that I think reads well without being too flashy. Ponies on the front, cutie marks on the back.

Hey everyone! I'm happy to announce that Bound Together is now officially on press! Real, actual books are being made as I write this. It'll be ready in time for you to receiver your preorder in April or to buy the book at BABScon (or other future conventions)! Bound Together is a charity comic and art anthology with a lot of great names on board.

:iconadlynh: :iconbakertoons: :iconcentchi: :iconemberwisp: :iconfxcellent: :iconjowybean: :iconleekfish: :iconmuffinshire: :iconponywise: :iconspectralunicorn: :iconsabrekitty: :iconsteveholtiscool: and Pasteur.

Unfortunately :iconpixelkitties: had to withdraw from the project due to time constraints, but she sends her well wishes to everyone involved. We brought in some extra artists since the project launched and we hope you'll enjoy their contributions!

There are still some preorder slots left, but they will be closing soon. You can preorder the book by clicking this link

In addition, I will of course be at BABScon too, at table A1! What a great number. I'll have the usual assortment of prints and buttons, but I'll also have new items like keychains and new material. Please make sure to stop by and say hi and maybe take something home. I'll be glad to see you. :)

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.

My livestream is currently . Click to watch!

Well put in that article.  Having your pony art in a playboy magazine would be an odd goal to have, but damn it that doesn't seem like some kind of life achievement!

Nice webcam by the way, that's definitely one of my favorite scenes in the show XD

   Hey, Dan. I sat in on your panel at Bronycon '14 and just saw you were mentioned in the Playboy Article recently. Just wanted to let you know, I still adore your work, dude, and you're advice has been helping me a lot, as I try to stay aloft in the Vending Scene.

    So, really, just wanted to let you know I appreciate your work and you words of wisdom. Thanks, Man.

You deserve them, dude. Like I said, you're helping me realize my own dreams in a way.

    Anytime you're near Charleston, SC, hit me up, so I can set you up. I'd love to return the favor and buy you a drink of some kind at my local spot.
