John Pickles
Artist | Student | Artisan Crafts
Hello! I am John Pickles and I'm a 20 something year old guy who likes doing artsy stuff and all that. I mainly work with customizing toys such as dolls and such, but here is where all of my pony customs are archived. I enjoy sculpting, modifying and painting these figures to look like particular characters and I'm always aiming to improve my skill set.

Not much more to say except remember that if you practice enough, you will train your hand, and in turn train the mind. I do hope I inspire others to create, customize and learn and I hope that you are inspired to create.

I don’t really have a story to tell about my very brief interaction with Andrea Libman. I had this giant Fluttershy to sell at PonyConAU thinking that full well that I probably wouldn’t meet the VAs and thinking someone else would buy her to get signed but she sat neglected all day.

But lo and behold, Andrea Libman was actually in the traders hall! And she was near my table! I grabbed Fluttershy, with the full intention of gifting her with this custom because no price compared to having the actual voice actress owning a piece of my work.

I awkwardly grabbed her attention and mumbled “Um, i wanted to give this to you” but Andrea Libman was so sweet and nice she couldn’t accept it, saying it was too much a gift for herself. So as a compromise I asked if she could sign it for me so she did with a good attitude.

And then I spent an hour swooning about how I got a signed Fluttershy figure to my friends.
