Good evening,

Now, this is how you truly start a convention season off right! Ponycon was excellent this year. I want to thank everyone who came over to my booth to either buy a pony or just to say hello.     

The Good

The convention was held at a resort along the South Jersey Shore. I found it rather interesting and odd that a four-star hotel would want a Brony convention, but apparently, according to what the convention heads told me, the resort opened itself to the convention with open arms! And I should add that I was one of the featured vendors at he convention, according to the official Twitter page. The convention staff and volunteers were all great to work with. I even got to meet old friends like :iconflameamigo619: and :icontishadster:. Plenty of good things that happened this weekend.

The Bad

I should note, and not to list any names, that there was a particular vendor in the hall who was allegedly using and selling prints made by other artists. Another close vendor friend alerted convention staff about this, and, as to not cause any drama in the convention, decided to handle the situation in a private manor. Good on them for not doing something during the convention.

The Highlight

As stated above, the resort was next to the shoreline facing the Atlantic Ocean. Now, during the day, you could see miles of unending sea with the faint silhouettes of cargo ships and ocean liners on the horizon meeting the sky. But at night, oh boy, looking at the ocean at night, especially from our hotel room balcony, we could see not only the lights of the Manhattan skyline, but a vast, dark, nothingness that replaced the vast ocean during the daylight hours. If you ever wanted to truly experience true, unfiltered, natural darkness the way nature intended, go out onto the ocean, go miles away from the shoreline, and just look around you. 

When I was still taking music in college, our band director said to us that silence was just as important to a piece of music as the notes on the page. I believe that the use of darkness in visual art has the same meaning.

Have a good day.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Brandon, but you can call me Silver Band. I have been customizing G4 My Little Pony brushable figures since January of 2012, and decided to share them with the world when I created my DeviantArt account in July of the same year. The manes and tales are all sculpted by me using Crayola Model Magic, and I try my best to shape them accordingly with the show. Making these figures has been a very fun experience and has lead me to meet people and go to places I've never thought I could possibly go before.
