Evillecon 2014 Mascots and Concept Art

I’m getting pretty excited about Evillecon Anime Convention coming up this Friday March 28 thru Sunday March 30th in Evansville, Indiana. But I’m also excited to see my mascots proudly adorning the Evillecon website!

That’s right, those cute kids in horsey costumes are my work. It started out with the Evillecon Team wanting me to explore the theme of “Year of the Horse” so I shot them some ideas, which they eventually asked me to develop along a My Little Pony slant:

Apologies to Hotline Miami and Twilight Sparkle! After looking at everything, they asked me to do My Little Pony style costumes using the mascots I designed them back in 2012, these kids here:

So I got busy and this was the result! I initially did deeper colors, which were then switched to more pastel colors.

The final three were the accepted mascots, and then they were altered a bit here and there by the Evillecon Team for display on their website. Below are the official mascots in their full website glory! You may see them other places during the convention as well.

And also, a reminder that my friend Cora and I will be appearing at the Artist Alley!
