Quickie update-- thanks and apologies

Mon Nov 14, 2011, 5:19 PM
Hey all---- I thought I'd come up for air for a few seconds to give a quick update.

I've been seeing lots of comments asking about why I don't answer messages or post more art.  I want to offer my apologies.  I just get so, so many notes, and my work is especially demanding these days.  To top it all off, the last 6 months have been kind of rough for me personally and the combination of all these elements just means I don't have the time to answer.

Still, I want to thank every one for the constant supply of kind words, inspiring stories and compliments.  I do get to read most of your notes (I think--- I hope!!) and the vast majority are so thoughtful.  And with the kind of year I've had, it really lifts my spirits.

I'm hoping that by the end of the year, maybe during Thanksgiving or Christmas break, I'll be able to put together an FAQ.  Lots of people ask for advice on how to get into animation, and I plan on answering that one.  Questions about my current works and a LOT of questions about MLP:FIM!  (I can't answer most questions about MLP, especially about stuff that happened after I left, but I will do the best I can.)

Again, my sincerest apologies that I can't answer more notes, but please understand that I really do appreciate them.  Coming to this page and reading about how MLP and my other works have affected people means a lot to me, and keeps me going when times are tough.

I'll be in touch soon, and THANKS!!!!

I figured you just got so many messages that it wasn't humanly possible to answer them all :p
And even if you're not working on MLP now, you're still the reason for G4 being awesome so you still deserve thanks. I hope to see other shows you create in the future.

Thank you so much for re-creating the My Little Pony series! It's been like a breath of fresh air after being subjected to the stagnant shows that play on the television these days. I truly cannot single out one character as my favorite, as they all bring me joy watching their antics and the consequences that follow. Pinkie Pie is hilarious; Rainbow Dash is just plain cool; Applejack is a very hard worker and is helpful; Fluttershy is silly because of her uncountable little fears; Rarity fun to watch squirm about cleaniness and poise; and Twilight Sparkle just cannot put down her books!

Anyway, the point is My Little Pony inspired me to draw again, to be able to show how much I have enjoyed this show and how shamelessly proud I am to call myself a Bronie. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. :)

I've got one question for you: Are you thinking about adding some new key grips in MLP:FiM? My Pony, Megaten would be happy to assist the Mane 6. He believes music is the weapon against oppression.

With the amount of work that goes into making even one show, not to mention multiple shows, I'm surprised you have any free time at all to answer questions from fans! People need to realize that animating a network TV show is a lot of work and can be very stressful when you have millions of fans demanding more episodes. So naturally it is difficult to read AND answer every comment, question, and message people send. People need to factor this in, when they send you something and expect an answer right away. We need to be patient, and wait for your reply. Also, we need to accept the possibility that you might not be able to reply at all.

Finding time to look at feedback from fans and comment on that, on top of what you do for a living, is amazing. It's one of the reasons I admire you as an artist.

Keep up the good work.

I suck as an artist and am more technical (computer programmer by trade, game design), but honestly, MLP is so well done and stands out to me in a market that is saturated with garbage shows.

I really hope that I have the opportunity to work with the same kind of talent that you have.
