The artist side of the Pony fandom is one of the most explosive and productive fan art communities on the web. By crossing borders of nations, race, and gender, it has a wide cross-section of fans who bring countless styles, experiences, and ideas into every work of art. Today, we feature an interview with Rai, moderator of the popular My Little Chubbies ask tumblr (also known as pekou on DeviantArt and Bronibooru). In it, Rai talks about how she became an artist, what motivates her, and even has a few words to say about the recent Twitch Plays Pokemon movement!
I interviewed futzi01, creator of several fan favorite fangames including Canterlot Siege, Cadance Toss, and most recently Twilight Wing. futzi01 has been entertaining the fandom with fun, quick flash games based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and he sat down with us to discuss his methods, ideas behind game design, and more.

Music By Octavia, an active member of our forums and composer of our theme song, is well known for his rearrangements of pony music.

After the Everfree Northwest 2013 closing ceremonies finished, TRS reporters ixnay and nimrod had a chance to chat with Raven Molisee, storyboard artist on seasons 2 & 3, before the convention totally shut down. Here’s the transcription of their interview!
The friendly folks at Everfree Network have a new interview for your perusal. Final Draft, along with GlitteringPony from Equestria LA have talked with Michelle Creber, the voice of Apple Bloom.

So this past weekend I attended Big Apple Ponycon in Brooklyn where writer Katie Cook, artist Andy Price, and cover artist Stephanie Buscema gave a panel on the My Little Pony comic series from IDW Publishing. The panel answered at least half the questions (the serious half) scribbled illegibly in my notepad, so after the panel when I nabbed Katie and Andy for a quick interview I was left with the silly half. Please join me behind the cut for a moment of levity with Katie Cook and Andy Price.
Screenplay over at DerpyHoovesNews sat down with some of the comic creative team at Big Apple Ponycon for an audio interview, where they discuss the comics, their process in creating them, and some other fun things too.
You’ve heard of BronyCon and Everfree Northwest. But there’s a growing convention scene in the United States with small events popping up in cities across the country. These events are bigger than normal meetups, but not quite on the scale of a spectacle like BronyCon. Today we sat down with Andrew Benigno to talk about these smaller events. Andrew is the head of PR for PON3 Con, a second-year pony fan convention in Omaha, Nebraska. Although PON3 Con isn’t in the bright lights of New York or LA, it finds itself a part of a growing scene of smaller, localized cons.
To read our interview with Mr. Benigno, check behind the cut.
