Once upon a time I made my living entirely from graphic design. This is shocking, because I’m a mediocre designer at best. These days I do more project management/content UI/writing than design, but for a brief point in my career there was a magical time where I was paid to draw ponies on the computer for a living.
Draw ponies. On the computer. For a living. Squee!
Recently I stumbled across a lot of these assets, some I did for work and some I did for fun. I decided they might make a fun blog post, if nothing else you can look and go ‘meh’ or ‘ooo ahhh’ and I can fill an otherwise boring day… because no one wants to hear about how much I really do hate lead changes.
Because really, I sure do hate lead changes a lot.
A lot a lot.
All being said, I don’t miss drawing ponies (and puppies) for a living. I prefer blogging about them in my spare time and doing oh so amazing cartoon doodles on my iPad.

That’s really cool!
That is very cool!
Fun! I make my living doing graphic design. It makes me never want to draw ever again in my life. Lead changes, though. Those are pretty fun.
Ah, I understand this so well. Something about doing it for a living means never finding time for drawing/painting just for fun. Le sigh…
Cool! But I feel that you’re avoiding lead changes??
Ugh, I cannot draw to safe my life but this post sure makes me wish I could!!
ooh i love these – esp the second one, so cute! and yea, lead changes are pretty much the bane of my existence. cross cantering ftw!!
Very cool! I can’t draw that well on a paper, never mind a computer. 🙂
LOVE the first palomino!
You’re so talented! I love them!
Dang, girl! color me impressed! Thanks for sharing them.
Tell us how you REALLY feel about lead changes. Don’t hold anything back, now. 😉
Once upon a time I wanted to be a graphic designer as well, but mostly I just wanted to play with computers and website design. Unfortunately I don’t have an artistic bone in my body, haha! Now I just code stuff for the hospital.
I am very, very impressed with your mad art skillz!!! Wow! I loved painted and coloring as a little girl. I am wistful when I see the very cool works of others (like yours). Great post!
I honestly cannot draw to save my life – you’ve got one special talent!
