It's a Purple Pony!

I need a little sign that says "Make Hay While the Sun Shines" because then it would remind me to do more productive things when our wacky weather is behaving nicely! For instance, I should have taken a photo of this ACEO outdoors on Saturday when I had the chance.

I drew it a few weeks ago at an artist trading card get together graciously hosted by Studio Todorovic at Art Central. Originally it was going to be one horse, but I didn't have an eraser, so I thought I would just go ahead and make it two horses in tandem. I used Copic markers for whole card. This line of markers is just wonderful to use, unlike Prismacolors. The nibs are replaceable and they have no odour.

The original card is for sale on Etsy - I do believe it's the first new thing I have listed in a long time!

Purple Pony ACEO


  1. So pretty! Thanks for the award. :)

  2. Thanks guys :-) Someone told me that tandem actually means one after the I guess they're side by side.

    And you're quite welcome for the award!

  3. It is beautiful! It also looks like 1 horse with a shadow if he is moving really fast! Anyways very cool either way!

  4. Thanks Pam! Yes, maybe his shadow will beat him to the finish line :-)
