Brony Art Jam 2.1- Let's Make Some Pony!

Return of the Brony Art Jam!

A huge part of What we do involves drawing, repainting blind bag ponies, plushy construction, singing the show's tunes and all that. So come on, artists, musicians, cosplayers, card traders, gamers and hangers out. Bring stuff to trade or vend! There will be art/craft lessons too. This is an open forum event, everything is cool. Cost will be $10/pony, to cover rent.

SGDA is ground level, so access is really easy. We don't have to share bathrooms with non ponies, so costume fittings are convenient. Nearest train is C train, Spring st station. Closest weekend parking seems to be VARICK STREET PARKING LLC[masked] Varick Street, $13 on weekends.

    Smaller gatherings are good because it allows for more intimate conversations; Art meetups set the scene for creative collaboration and friendly chatter while working on individual projects.

    I made custom Blind bags all day... Happy :)

    It was rather short and there were not as many people as i had hoped, but in overall it was good.

    Man I'm not feelin' too great, chances are pretty slim I'll make it out there, thankfully Alan's got my back and for that I'm eternally greatful.

    A little off-topic, but does anyone that was at NYCC have an extra Derpy promo card + foil Derpy poster that they'd trade for a Derpy Vinyl figure (the Funko one from Hot Topic)? I missed out on CC and would really like to get my hands on the promo Derpy stuff Enterprise had there. If anyone would be up for the trade that's also going to be at Art Jam, let me know! And I can bring an extra Vinyl Derpy with me to do the swap? =)

    Before I wind up getting lost... Does anyone know what train I can take from the Port Authority/Times Square area to get to this place?

    October 21, 2012

    • Alan

      E to spring st. The you are 2 blocks away.

      E or N. whichever is easier for you to get to. https://maps.google.co...­ That whole "between prince and houston" is kinda flubbing map apps so delete it and just plug the address.

    i hate canceling at the last minute like this but i'm unfortunately all out of money and won't be getting my next paycheck until Tuesday so i won't be able to make the trip down to the city

    October 21, 2012

    • Alan

      Sorry to hear that!

      October 21, 2012

  • Invalid-David

    Damn. It's midtern exam week for my school, and I'll have to stay and do some studying. Can't come, so sorry. I hope the rest of you have a really fun time.

    October 21, 2012

  • Alan

    Do we have any musicians?

    October 20, 2012

  • Kar

    I think if I can get the day off this will be a great time to finish my special custom for halloween! Also maybe catch up on a little spot of sewing I've been dragging on. A certain grey pegasus plushie needs to have her bangs fluffed up. Charles if you bring Tavi I can fix her leg 4ya... and if I DON'T have the day off I will meet you all for dinner after the meetup. Alan where were you thinking again? Washington Sq diner?

    October 14, 2012

    • William G N.

      @Kar..."A certain grey pegasus"... I wonder who that could be??? :)

      October 15, 2012

    • Kar

      She's packed in my work bag now! But I'm not letting her near the flowers I'm doing tomorrow :0

      October 20, 2012

  • Kar

    Who is up for grabbing a bite after the art jam? I will be arriving late as I have to work that day, but I want to get to spend some time with mah art bronies anyway!

    1 · September 20, 2012

    • Daniel M.

      I'll go too :)

      October 15, 2012

    • Kar

      I found out today that the earliest I'll be showing up is 3. I'm setting up flowers for a wedding and the ceremony's at 5. I'll be done by 4pm, latest, and I'll zip on over! Can't wait =)

      October 20, 2012

  • Edward

    Is vending for only art/crafts at this event? Or are we allowed to bring some official merch to sell too? I have a few extra Trixies, Lyras, and a Pinkie Pie Xmas Ornament or two, if anypony wants!

    October 19, 2012

    • Alan

      We should make really sure that the premier party is very vendor friendly. It should get a huge turn out 2. The nitemare nite party is just gonna be packed solid with 100+ ponies so far. Displaying yer swag will take creativity.

      1 · October 19, 2012

    • Kar

      yep, each floor of this space is roughly the same size as one of Pearl's 'smaller' rooms - and 150 is the max capacity and that's not allowing for tables and stuff.

      October 20, 2012

  • Justine G.

    I was planning on it, but I've made the difficult choice to go to the PA Ren Faire instead. I'll see you guys at the Season 3 premier and at the next art jam!

    1 · October 19, 2012

    • Lissanne L.

      Say hello to Terra Serpentis who are playing there- check them out! we were supposed to go down but have a too busy weekend. they played NJ ren faire too!

      1 · October 19, 2012

  • Alan

    Wow! Almost 30 ponies? This might be very very cool! Ima gonna have to bring a hand stamper to keep track of y'all.

    October 19, 2012

  • Sarah - N.

    I think I'll bring some plushies to finish as well since I'll be prepping for EqLA that week. <3

    2 · September 23, 2012

    • Sarah - N.

      I am bringing some UV paints. I did a few tests tonight painting mlp coloringbook pages and they look awesome under the blacklight. I can use some help doing more to decorate the walls for NMN. I'll bring extra brushes Sunday for whoever would like to pitch in. :-)

      October 18, 2012

    • Lissanne L.

      I am going to bring my Boo paint (glow in the dark acrylic) I was planning to bring it to scary pony painting too.

      October 18, 2012

  • Cali S.

    Oh man! I am tapped out from comic con, if I'm not able to make it, you think you'll hav another one?

    October 14, 2012

    • Kar

      why soitenly! Nyuk nyuk nyuk. Probably mid-winter :)

      October 17, 2012

  • Daniel M.

    I look forward to seeing everyone's art of the trade ( i hope that's the right way to say it o.O ). Basically everypony's special skill

    October 15, 2012

    • William G N.

      My skill is being special! ha-HA (Sorry, I couldn't resist..)

    Not sure if we will be able to make it this weekend but this is definitely the kind of meetup we would love to attend! I'm gonna make those Chrysalis wings if it's the last thing I do!

    I don't sell or paint custom anything yet is this a good thing for me to attend? Can I just come to buy stuff? =)

    October 11, 2012

    • Alan

      Sure! Artists are mostly happy to sell. It is a good chance to talk to artists in detail, if you have commissions or O.C. pony work in mind.

      October 11, 2012

  • Rodrigo O.

    I really hope I won't be working during this weekend. Let's see if luck is on my side.

    1 · October 5, 2012

  • Charles S.

    If somepony could be a sewing kit to repair my Tavi plush, I would be eternally grateful. Since my gratitude doesn't pay the bills, I am more than happy to compensate for the service.

    October 2, 2012

    • Charles S.

      Great! I know how to sew, but I haven't done it in a while and I don't trust myself to mend my Tavi.

      October 2, 2012

    • Lissanne L.

      Great! It is easy and I am sure with a little coaching you will remember, and then you will be able to repair any other mishaps! The important things are being careful with the stitches and matching the thread. The deeper the plush/fur, the less that matters actually :)

      October 2, 2012

  • Alan

    Disco have some G# blindbag ponies we can use to practice pony mods and repaints on. I anypony going to see him in the next month? I don't think I will.

    September 26, 2012

  • William G N.

    First art jam was a blast! Really looking forward to this one as I know it will be too!

    September 22, 2012

  • Alan

    When did this pic go up? Where the heck is Lyra getting spray caps? And Shining Armor is going to give her such a scolding.

    September 20, 2012

    • Kar

      D= *meep* I put it there Alan, coupla days ago. I added pix to a few events. I like to "decorate" sometimes! It's got such wonderful attitude, doesn't it? I believe it's a J. Joseco - He's not a member here but has come to our functions in the past so you could say he's an adopted member!

      1 · September 20, 2012

  • Xion M.

    Na it's a portable one but I'm jus gona bring some already made body's and finish them at te place I think.

    1 · September 15, 2012

  • Xion M.

    So im a plush artist. do i bring like... pre made stuff and just do the hand stitching portion? or do i bring lie.. fabric and a sewing machien and make a push from the ground up?

    September 15, 2012

    • Alan

      You wanna haul an entire sewing machine into the city? Wow. But we would love to share about construction methods, fabric resources (and swap), pattern design ideas and stuff. No need for a hernia, unless you want to.
