Star Butterfly by ronaldhennessy
Star Butterfly
They say that it was fanart that convinced Disney to renew the show "Star Vs. The Force of Evil" for a second season after it's 1st episode.

Let's give them more reasons.

Fanart - Boxtrolls - Eggs and Winnie Portely-Rind
I saw this movie awhile back. Fantastically animated. I wish it won best animated picture at the Oscars, but I'm ok with that.

  • Reading: Merry Chrissy and the Naughty or Nice Truth
2014 was quite a crazy, yet normal year for me. Sure, I spent much of my free time working on my first novel, and attended 4 cons (My 14th straight year of attending at least 1 convention), but largely it was drama and controversy free. Maybe being busy with work and projects is good, but I still look to improve other aspects of my life. I'm not a big fan of New Years Resolutions and I'm certainly not a fan of avoiding what needs to be taken care of, but let's put it in these simple words: there are other personal issues I need to address. As I'm a very private person, I wish not to discuss them at this time.

That doesn't mean I'm going to take a huge time off from my interests. This era of creativity has profoundly changed me. I look to aiming higher and higher than ever before. My art has and will always be a work of progression. I'm my worst critic. I'm never satisfied sometimes. There are many sketches and even fully colored artwork that may never see the light of day because I feel it's simply too awful or rough. I'll just keep at it. Drawing is now a habit for me, but still managing to learn as much as I can. I don't want to be mediocre. I don't want to be just good. I want to be legendary. When will that day arrive when I become pro at this, I may never know. Who knows, I might fold up shop like I did with photography a few years back, but this time is different. I'm more patient and tolerant of failure as I'm older now. Greatness and success does not come overnight.

In order to get me finances in order for the future, I will not be making any appearances art wise at any conventions. I really wanted to get into MoCCA Fest for example, but I missed the registration deadline (again!) So, it's best for me to take the year "off".

Anyways, with the first Merry Chrissy title in the books, it's time to focus on book number two. Yes, a sequel to "Merry Chrissy and the Naughty or Nice Truth" is currently in the early stages of production. Right now, I can't say when it's going to come out, but "soon" is the the most concrete release date I can say right now. The outlining is done and the first few chapters were already written. Come follow me on Twitter or Tumblr to find out future developments. Don't forget, there is always my mailing list!
Give Love on Christmas Day by ronaldhennessy
Give Love on Christmas Day

Every year, I do some Christmas art with my originals. Usually, it's 1 major work I introduce before Christmas, but this year, I decided to do *THREE* This is the final of 3. The theme this year is song related. I chose these song titles that best fit my characters personalities.

Check out "All of Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" featuring Maddie Mckenszie and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" featuring Princess.

Today features Chrissy Deigh, the star of my new book "Merry Chrissy and the Naughty or Nice Truth"representing the song "Give Love on Christmas Day", originally performed by the Jackson 5 in 1970 for "The Jackson 5 Christmas Album". A young Michael Jackson sings the vocals. Have a listen.

I chose this song for a reason. Not only it represents the heart and soul of Chrissy, who enjoys the magic of Christmas year round, but it's also the name of the final chapter of the book. Of course, you'll need to read it to find out WHY.

Other R&B and Soul artists such as SWV, New Edition and my personal favorite Ledisi have covered the song over the years. If Chrissy had a theme song, Ledisi's version of "Give Love on Christmas Day" would be it.

After a long time, I decided to start drawing again. Now I do it on a regular basis. Right now I focus on a cartoony style featuring mostly original artwork. I really not interested in drawing in the Anime/Manga style at this time.

Hullo! Do you do collabs? I am working on a mlp comic and I don't have the means to make it look nice (I have pens and colored pencils and that's about it.)
