Ask H.P. Hoofcraft Closing Down

It’s a sad thing to admit to myself.  My hiatus has really driven home that I don’t have the energy to keep up with this blog.  I feel it’s time to call it — the time is 5:22pm, July 10th, 2013.

Thank you so much to everyone who followed and submitted all those marvelous questions, puns, and interpretations.  I will leave this blog intact.  Abandoned like a queer, evil church on a lonely and stricken hillside awaiting some obsessively curious mythos investigator seeking a shining trapezohedron.

"That is not dead which can eternal lie.  And with strange aeons even death may die."

Bad Shoggy!  Bad!  No!  No!  I can’t believe you ate my glasses again!
Jeez, I take a little vacation for a couple of months and she acts like I didn’t feed her.  Well, okay, I didn’t.  But honestly, I don’t ever feed her.  She just seems to…  exist.

"Everything’s fine here.  Nothing to worry about.  Just a little ritual mishap."
Leans in and whispers, “Send help!”

"Oh, yes! Very good, Shoggy! I neglected to thank Fluttershy for this new hair ribbon. Please hug her for me! Perfect! Lesson well-learned, Shoggy! Good shoggoth! Yes you are! Yes you are! Ah-booga-booga! Tee hee hee! Awwww… you’re so cute! Look at you blush with happiness to give a hug!”

So many questions about Slender Mane, or Slender Mare.  Seriously, everypony, you’ll believe anything…

Maybe H.P. found something she shouldn’t have.

Doing this as gotten me into reading Lovecraft. 
thanks a lot sky. ^_^

You’re welcome, Xen. =D
A nod to The Haunter of the Dark. But where in Equestria did she find the Shining Trapezohedron?

This was a special custom pony for the ever-amazing Lily Trader! I love his HP Hoofcraft stuff, and decided to make him a doll of HP herself. She looks so cute!!

I can’t express how much I love this!  She even has the bags under her eyes.  So adorable!

Going to Everfree NW

This weekend! I’ll be at Everfree NW, having a ball and making new friends.  I don’t have a dealers table, or a slot in artist alley. However…

As I’ve mentioned on Twitter, I have a small sampling of free posters to give out (one per person). All you need to do to get one is ask. I have a contact sheet so you can see what I have to offer. Once the posters are gone, that’s it.  I have about twenty of them, which includes The Whinnier in Darkness, and The Statement of Rainbow Carter.

So just how are you supposed to find me? Excellent question. Ingenuity! I recommend asking as many strangers as you can find if they’re Lilytrader. That always yields results.

Or you could just look at my badge, but honestly, where’s the fun in that.

A 1920 x 1280 wallpaper of Hoofcraft borrowing a book from Twilight.  Maybe.  Perhaps Shoggy is trying to stop her from stealing a book.  It’s hard to say…
This is one of the design changes for my reboot of the blog.  I wanted to make a scrawnier version of Hoofcraft, and give her glasses.  I had meant to all along, but as I was re-learning how to draw at the time I just wasn’t able to convey what I wanted.  Every time I tried drawing her with glasses, they always felt awkward and in the way. I think I’ve progressed enough to pull it off now.

Come to Sweet Apple Acres and see the meteorite that fell to Equestria.  While you’re here, y’all have some fresh cider.  We use only the finest well water available!
