Dreamwalker for #PonyFest13

Fall brings so many things to look forward to—warm sweaters, pumpkin spice coffee, rain. And one of my favorites: PonyFest! Rebecca Enzor hosts an annual contest where authors design a custom My Little Pony based on their novel. If you didn’t already know, I LOVE drawing My Little Pony, and I especially enjoy making up customs to go with books. This year I made a Dreamwalker pony.

This pony represents one of the main themes/settings in the Dreamwalker books: the dreamscape. It’s an otherworldly realm that continuously changes shape, blending reality and possibility. There is no sun or moon, just a canopy of blue mist. In the first book, the main character Lexa learns how to transcend the dream world and touch the stars, thus the symbol on this pony. This is the first one I’ve made combining hand-drawn technique with digital enhancement, but I think it turned out neat.

Be sure to check out Rebecca’s post and visit the other participating blogs! The creativity is so much fun to see. Voting will start October 5th and the winner will receive an actual custom based on their design.

Take A Ride With Me

I went out with a friend recently and for the first time, I drove us to our little outing. Prior to this, my friend had known me at work, restaurants, and home. After getting in my car, apparently she discovered a whole new side to me. I find this rather amusing, so I thought I’d make it a blog post and give you all a similar glimpse into the Nascar side of Angela Wallace. (Before you get ahead of yourself, no, I’m not a speed racer.)

Let’s start with the interior.

Immediately obvious is my attraction to colorful decorations. That’s not surprising. (Hello, blog.) It goes against the self-defense rule book, advertising this vehicle belongs to a woman. Think if I add daggers somewhere it will give creepy predators pause to reconsider?

Next we have the tunes. I never drive without music. Maybe it’s because silence in the car bugs me, and since I currently can only write to silence, I gotta get my music fix somewhere. Shall we see what’s currently in the player?

  • “Some Nights” by FUN
  • “L’Amour Toujours” by Gigi d’Agostino
  • “Catch My Breath” by Kelly Clarkson

That’s just to name a few. I have probably two dozen mixes to choose from, mostly Pop, Rock, and Christian. However, I also have a collection of Irish drinking songs. “Ramblin’ Rover” anyone?

The last bit of a driving experience with me is something I can’t reproduce on the blog. I said I wasn’t a speed demon, but my car does have some nice get-up-and-go and adept maneuvering capabilities—which I fully know how to manipulate. Perhaps my friend was surprised by the confidence I exercised behind the wheel. I’ve had my car for a decade and know it better than the back of my hand: exactly how it handles turns, acceleration, and braking when someone comes out of nowhere. The way I drive in it is not how I drive in any other car. So I hope mine lasts forever and I never have to buy a new one, lol.

I hope you guys enjoyed this glimpse into this semi-secret side of me. Now you tell me, does your driving persona match your public one?
