Andy Price - Applejack: My Little Pony

2013.10.11 NY Comic Con, NYC
"C'mon, Ponies! Move it! You freakin' glue factories!
I got 20 bits ridin' on this!"

Andy Price is currently working for IDW on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, with writer Katie Cook.

Price has also donw license work for DC Comics, Marvel comics, Boom Studios, Innovation Comics (penciller for Quantum Leap), Slave Labor Graphics' Haunted Mansion (writer, penciler, inker) and Rittenhouse Archives,
 and WordGirl

Price is heavily influenced by comic book artists such as Don Newton (DC Comics: Batman, Captain Marvel and Aquaman in the 70s and 80s) and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (DC Comics: Superman and Wonder Woman). Price has an unhealthy love for Batman and an obsession with Nightmare Before Christmas..

My Little Pony was created by Bonnie Zacherle, developed by Hasbro and is marketed to girls. Starting as a line of toy ponies in 1983, the ponies feature colorful bodies, manes and a unique symbol on their flank. The Ponies were featured in their first animated special in 1984 titled My Little Pony and later retitled as Rescue At Midnight Garden. In 2012 IDW published the first Pony comic Friendship is Magic.

Price drew a very funny Applejack, a hard working earth pony in charge of family's apple orchard, watching the horse race on the stamp and cheering them on...
