2. Artist of the Day: Rebecca Dart

Rebecca Dart

Rebecca Dart lives in Vancouver and works on animation productions as well as creating comics and drawings for personal projects.

A difficult subject for artists to draw well is the horse. Rebecca renders horses, warriors and all sorts of fantasy creatures in powerful, confidently inked brush strokes that make it seem effortless. Perhaps her horse drawing ability aided her in securing a job as part of the crew that recently rebooted the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic television series, although you won’t see her art from the show on her blog where she has decided not to post any Pony-related concepts.

Instead, you’ll find her slice-of-life comics:

And various pieces from Rebecca’s art book, Battle Kittens, which features fearsome weapon-wielding ladies riding gigantic kittens into battle.

3. We’ve Created A Bronster!

As the second season of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic commences, it’s worth another look at the post that started the phenomenon known as The Bronies.

Amid’s commentary on the state of TV animation, which was directed towards an professional audience, was interpreted differently by younger animation fans who weren’t as familiar with industry lingo like creator-driven animation. The unexpected reaction to the article spread on 4chan’s /b/ and sparked a world-wide fandom for this innocuous children’s show, leading to obsessive sites like this and this.

Now the folks at Know Your Meme have created the video history of this show’s popularity (and done a pretty good job of mangling the pronunciation of Amid’s name in the process):

4. Coming Soon

2011 is not quite done, but that doesn’t stop the studios from promoting its upcoming 2012 fare. Here’s the clever one-sheet (and a new name) for Disney’s latest Studio Ghibli release, The Secret World Of Arriety.

The latest from Laika, via Focus Features, Paranorman, opens next August 17th. The teaser poster is quite striking:

And finally, for all you Bronies, this scary looking poster spotted on Ventura Blvd (at Barham Blvd.):
