Interview with: Jennifer Blake
Who’s your favorite pony?
She somehow has my exact personality which i figure means Lauren Faust had cameras in my apt for years… also we both share the profession of Fashion Designer.
Who’s the most interesting to draw?
Rarity and Pinkie Pie.
Rarity for her beautiful expressive eyes… but my god do I love going nuts with Pinkie and her hair and crazy faces.
What techniques and mediums did you use for your cards/plates?
I’m a very, very traditional artist when it comes to what I use. Simply, just a 6H lead pencil, pigma micron pens and prismacolor artmarkers…it’s easier to do than learn computers…me not smartest pony!!!
Was there a theme to your cards/plates?
To try and capture the love and beauty along with the personalties of each of the Mane 6.
How did you get involved with the project?
I still don’t know how I got this lucky, but simply, I had sent in some samples of my work to IDW hoping for a chance to work on this property though I lack a lot of background in comics work. Clearly someone from IDW got a hold of that art and they came to me asking me to work on this amazing project. It took less time than making a sonic rainboom to say yes to this!!!
Where does your interest in MLP come from?
I grew up with Generation 1, but what Lauren Faust created with MLP Friendship Is Magic is nothing short of amazing and has brought together every walk of life, giving them a place to share in something that is truly endearing and amazing. To get to be even a small small part of this is a dream come true for me.
Did you grow up watching/playing with MLP?
They kicked the crap out of my Transformers, He-man and Super Powers figures daily.
When did you first learn about this new re-surgence of interest in MLP?
I learned about MLP through a wonderful young man who told me about the show after he and his father bought a large amount of my action figure collection one day. I went to Netflix and soaked up the show and when I saw Rarity for the first time I was hooked forever.
Do you watch the new show?
Every chance I get!!
What are you working on now?
Pretty much fashion design and any and all MLP related projects that come my way along with sooo many comissions my left hand is cursing me out!!!
