GIVEAWAY: My Little Pony: The Art of Equestria



Are you a Brony or a Pegasister? Do you draw cutie marks on the side of your legs? Can I get through this post without mentioning a jar (oops, too late)? Do you revel in the animated series’ tiniest details? You’re gonna want this book.

My Little Pony: The Art of Equestria presents, for the first time, a deep exploration of the art and illustrations from this beloved animated series, Friendship Is Magic. Beginning with the show’s premiere and taking readers through its fifth season, the book offers an amazing collection of the art and design that bring this wonderful series to life. The book takes readers behind the scenes of the show and explores how favorite characters and the landscape of Equestria came to look as they are today. Beyond the television show, My Little Pony: The Art of Equestria also examines the intriguing fan culture—including the fan art movement inspired by Friendship Is Magic. With a rich array of conceptual art, episode storyboards, and memorable scenes from the show, My Little Pony: The Art of Equestria is the ultimate guidebook, collector’s item, and fan keepsake.

And two of you can get a FREE copy from us, thanks to Abrams Books and Hasbro. Here’s what I want you to do for it: in comments below, describe what sort of pony you would be in the Equestria world. You can link to artwork of your character if you like, or just use words – creativity trumps draftsmanship. Nothing explicitly R-rated, please – let’s have it be something you could theoretically get away with on the show itself.

Books ship to U.S. addresses only, and entries will close next Monday, October 19th at noon. So come on every pony, write write write!

About Author

As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.) Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A.
