MOD: Hello everyone! If you have been paying any attention to my livestream spam at all you’d know I’ll be going to BUCKcon, where I’ll be a vendor together with alskylark, dennybutt, brainedbysaucepans and ayasha-the-pony! I’m incredibly excited already, it’ll be my first time as a vendor, so we’ll see how that goes, hahaha

If you are going to BUCK, please drop by and say hi! I’m there with four very talented artists and I’d really love to meet more people from tumblr! My business cards will be a tiny version of my rainbow dash print, so if you want to pick one up (and come on, everybody likes freebies)

See you there!

AFGHANISTAN, Mazar-i-Sharif : An Afghan balloon vendor walks past the Hazrat-e-Ali shrine, or Blue Mosque, in Mazar-i-sharif on September 21, 2014. Afghanistan’s economy has improved significantly since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001 largely because of the infusion of international assistance. Despite significant improvement in the last decade the country is still extremely poor and remains highly dependent on foreign aid. AFP PHOTO / Farshad Usyan
