Pin-up of the Day- Twilight Sparkle!

Yes this is a "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" character. If you were to ask if I would ever do a My Little Pony art piece back about five years ago or even further back than that, I would have told you you were crazy. Honestly, I have found that the new television series is at times entertaining and customizing generic pony toys is a load of fun. Ok, I find customizing the toys to be more fun than watching the show, but I'm a plastic addict so I'm a bit biased. I've enjoyed the show, but I wouldn't call myself a bronie. This was a Christmas gift to my good friend, Brynna. She happens to be a fan of this pony. When I was presented with the suggestion of a My Little Pony pin-up, I had to figure out how to illustrate the it. Instead of making a piece that looks like the cartoon, I decided to add my bit of style and make ole' Twilight a bit more realistic; well, as real as a unicorn with a human personality could look, I guess. I'd like to say that this is my last My Little Pony pin-up, but fate will not let that happen; not at all. So if you like ponies stay tuned and I should have another posted soon! You can also see this piece here in my deviantart gallery. 

I do have a table for the Sci-Fi Expo on February 9-10th. I'll be there with some new work to sell,my pin-up girl posters, the newest issue of Xenex the Bug Man and custom toys. Jeff will be there with me selling some Marvindog media merchandise and taking toy memory recordings! Stop by, say,"hi", and show your support. I hope to see you there!

I have all Xenex the Bug Man comic books available for print on demand. You can see that listing here on my store's tab for comic books. 

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! The shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
