We forgot to post this here : Post Brony Con Update!


Hey there, everypony!

We’re pleased to announce the successful debut of the Traveling Pony Museum during BurnyCon, we mean BRONYcon. :P

Everything went amazingly well. The museum room was never empty and I’m pretty sure that nearly all 4000 attendees came in to check it out.

For those artists who graciously allowed us to make prints for the museum store, the posters were a huge hit. We sold out of pretty much everything on the first day. To anyone who wishes to continue to allow us to make prints for sales at the con, we will still be offering the % back on every poster sold! Great opportunity for those who can’t make it to the cons or want some spare cash. We’re also open to selling non-print artwork such as plushies, sculptures and random pony-ness as well at our convention tables.

And good news! Because of the massive success at BronyCon, we’ll be bumping up the % back on poster sales from 25% to 30% for TrotCon and Everfree NW! That means if you let us make prints for BronyCon and made 25% back on each poster sold, if you stick with us and let us print for TrotCon and Everfree NW, you’ll get 30% back on sales! The museum is glad that we can continue to help out our artists more and more in any way that we can since you all have been so wonderful to us and to the museum by allowing us to take your pieces on an adventure across the states. This offer is open to any other current print artists within the museum as well as new artists who join the museum team!

The museum has already welcomed 5 new artists since BronyCon’s end. We’re excited that more people have become interested in the project and can’t wait to see who sends us an email next. Don’t forget, you can send examples of your work to TravelingPonyMuseum@gmail.com You can send us something made just for the museum, or let us pick from amongst your work! Just make sure to specify what piece or pieces you’re okay with being displayed or printed to avoid confusion! 

We are also working on and planning a website revamp. All new artists will continue being added along with blurbs as usual! However, editing our current code is tedious so we’re working on finding a simpler, easier entry solution. Let us know if you have any programming skills and would like to help us out!

For those of you keeping up with the livestreams, the letters to Princess Celestia were hand delivered to Lauren Faust during her panel. She was thrilled and taken by surprise that so many of you had written to her personally. This project has been so amazing to put together and the museum hopes to be able to put together another project like this soon.

On a last note, a generous BroNYCon attendee has donated a piece of the burnt plastic from the light fixture that the fire nation had attacked. The museum is now 20% hotter.

We can’t wait to see you all at TrotCon, Everfree, and hopefully CG!

Traveling Pony Museum vs Gallery


Dear brony artists, art fans, and the community at large:

Recently, a group calling itself the ‘Traveling Pony Gallery’ has made itself known, and has begun contacting a number of artists within the community. This has created a large amount of confusion. Please note that the ‘Traveling Pony Gallery’ IS NOT associated with the ‘Traveling Pony Museum’. It is a completely separate effort, neither endorsed by, nor affiliated with, the Museum.

While the TPM bears the TPG no ill will, we do wish to make it publicly known that this new group is NOT affiliated with us. We are opening a discussion with them about changing their name, which we believe is the primary source of confusion.

The Traveling Pony Museum, founded in January, is the premiere traveling exhibition of pony artwork. It has appeared at I-CON, multiple Bronies-NYC meetups, and will be making its brony convention debut at BronyCon this coming weekend. After BronyCon, the TPM plans on attending TrotCon, Canterlot Gardens, and Everfree NW, as well as at Bronies-Boston and Bronies-DC meetups. All types of artwork and plushies are still being accepted for the listed conventions.

The museum’s goal is to provide exposure and promotion to the many wonderful artists within our community. We currently have over 60 artists on board and growing. Our collection includes the famous ‘Monster Pie’ life-sized Pinkie Pie plush, the hoof-painted replica of Twilight Sparkle’s book from Episode 1, artwork by John Joseco, Egophiliac, PixelKitties, Tsitra360, and a Fausticorn plush created by WhiteDove Creations. For more information, visit our website at http://www.TravelingPonyMuseum.com or email TravelingPonyMuseum@gmail.com.

After organizing a 24-hour charity marathon which resulted in a generous contribution of $5,000 to Maddy Peters’s charity, ‘Inked! Art for Africa’, we now will be raising money at conventions through merch sales to help out Kiki, a young girl suffering from a brain tumor. We’d like to thank all artists who are helping participate in this effort through poster sales.

Again, we’d like to extend our hooves to all artists big and small in this community. We hope to see you all at BronyCon, along with all the other fine conventions we’ll be attending this summer and beyond.

Signed,

The Traveling Pony Museum Team

The Dear Princess Celestia project has been a big hit as well. I’ve received handfuls of letters in the mail already as well as through email. I am hoping that even more will come in before BronyCon June so that there will be a brilliant compilation to be presented to Lauren Faust. There will be a place at BronyCon itself where you can hand write a letter.

There will be guests and some fun things going on as the winners are chosen live. You’ll still be able to buy tickets up until show time and in the opening stages of the show itself.

Project Dear Princess Celestia


Project: Dear Princess Celestia…

This is a comprehensive project to pull together letters from across the globe written by the community about what they have learned in life because of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. The letters will be compiled into a book which will be featured in the Traveling Pony Museum and then presented to Lauren Faust as a thank you for all that she’s done and to show her how much we have all grown because of her.

Submissions :

Letters should be hand written.

Typed letters are very strongly discouraged and any who want to submit typed letters should contact travelingponymuseum@gmail.com

Make it personal. Tell us your story and what MLP has done for you and how it has impacted your life. Have you made more friends, become more of an open and honest person? Write it down and have fun with it. Don’t be afraid to draw ponies in the margins or send things with the letter.

Letters should start with Dear Princess Celestia…
and end with Your Faithful Student…
and signed with your pony persona name.

If you do not have a pony persona name then just use your real name or a nickname.

Please send all letters to :

Megan Youmans (Inky Notebook)
500 Circle Road
Stony Brook NY, 11790
USA

Any questions please email travelingponymuseum@gmail.com


Hey everyone


I’ve been a bit busy lately so I’ll hopefully be able to update the artist page soon. A bunch of new members on board and some updates as well. 

Also Paypal is becoming quite annoying and so I will have to figure out something for the charity and donations in the meantime while I fill out the paperwork to become a registered not for profit organization. 

I’ll get back on things soon,

Inky

Goal for the Charity Raffle!


Our goal is to raise $5,000 or more through the charity raffle.

Part of the money will be going to Maddy Peters’, the voice of Scootaloo, charity Inked! Art for Africa. And part of the money will also be going to helping the TPM get to Everfree NW in August not only for the convention but to visit sick children at the Seattle’s Childrens Hospital before the con!

I’m asking everyone to reach out into the community for this event!  Please help us reach our goal!

We’ve already sold over 50 tickets and have raised roughly $500 and we still have over a month to go!

If 500 people donated just $10 then we could reach our goal. Thousands of people attend brony conventions across the United States! $10? From 500 people? Shouldn’t be too hard~  ;)

We can do this everyone!
