As if the great Jay Fosgitt couldn’t get any greater. Now he’s illustrating My Little Pony for IDW. And he whipped up this fancy image of Ellie riding he very own pony at a comic signing yesterday. What little robot girl didn’t want a pony when she was young?

Timor was having trouble sleeping. It seems he was worried that the Voyager spacecraft was lonely way out there by itself. So the CBC got astronaut Chris Hadfield to let him know that Voyager was doing just fine, and that a busy space explorer is a happy space explorer.

Bodie Troll has nominated Ellie for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! And who is our intrepid little mechanical marvel to not step up? Ellie nominates Captain John from Tom Dell’Aringa’s Marooned, Denver Brubaker’s The Checkered Man, and Steve Ogden’s Doctor Magnifico!

Work on the graphic novel continues. I just completed what I think is a pretty awesome depiction of the Jungle Oasis. I’m not able to show you the whole thing, but here’s a little tiny bit…
Work on the Ellie On Planet X graphic novel continues. No major landmarks passed or anything, but what I have is looking pretty good so far. That’s saying a lot when I pick apart everything I do (there was a lot of re-doing going on). I only wish I was able to show you what I have so far.

Something cool arrived in the mail today! Emily Fricke finished the Ellie figure I commissioned from her. Check it out, with her little treads and antenna and all. So cute! Make sure you check out Emily’s Storenvy shop too!
Then a crazy thing arrived by tweet via Jon’s Crazy Stuff. Jon Esparza included Ellie and Balloon Boy in his most recent comic, along with some of his favorite characters from other strips all showing up at a comic con. Looks like she’s in good company. Thanks, Jon!
