This month, the Academy turns two years old. It has been quite a ride, getting to this point, and not all of it… in fact almost none of it has gone as originally intended. I honestly believe, however, that it is better for this. It has been a pleasure making this comic for you, and I am always happy to see people enjoying and sharing the lives of our favorite equine musicians.
Originally, I was going to do a single image, but two things occurred. First, I botched the exact date, so I felt I had to make up for that. Second, I tried thinking of an image that could capture all three characters fully, and nothing really worthwhile was coming to mind. So, please look forward to the remaining 2(3 technically) entries in the “Musicians” series. There is more I would say, but I need to save something for the other announcement that will hopefully be this month.
Thank you everyone who enjoys the Canterlot Academy of Music, and thank you everyone who has been so supportive of this endeavor. I have a lot more planned for this comic, so please stay tuned.
For his series Portraits of the Blues, photographer Lou Bopp captures the last remaining Mississippi delta Blues musicians. Since 2008, he has made portraits of over 70 now elderly men who have made important contributions to this classic American genre of music.
There was a New York Times article … about the death of the romantic comedy, about how romantic comedies begin with divorce now, or they begin with a baby being conceived. It’s not just about two people who care about each other a lot. [Pushing Daisies] has given me an appreciation for that being enough. It’s enough to love someone and choose to be with them, even though it’s hard. —LP
