Mean Pony

Mean Pony sketch
When my nephew, Lucas, was little, he wanted the story of Mean Pony. I loved the idea and worked on it, complete with full sketch dummy and finishes.

Turns out the book was a little too mean and angry for the general population. So, Mean Pony is still a work in progress because I love the title and idea. 

The book is about an angry pony that lashes out and scares people away and the cycle begins. Because she lashes out people leave her alone and because no one gives her kind attention, she lashes out.

Eventually, a little boy changes the cycle by overlooking the anger and being kind.

Kindness is always the way to go. Sometimes people, and ponies, just need some positive attention.

A Happy New Year

"Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on." 

On a regular basis most of us need to be reminded to be free, be ourselves, and not hang on to things that we really don't want afterall.

The most miserable people I've met are the ones who hold on to things that make them unhappy because they are afraid to let go and have a life they would truly enjoy.

As Julia Cameron says, "Leap and the net will appear." 

Wishing you all a brave, happy, free, adventurous new year filled with making changes toward the life you want.
