For the past two weeks I've been working very hard to create an 84-page My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Coloring and Activity Storybook that can work for both kids and grown-ups.

Now, it's done!

This isn't intended to compete with the official Pony coloring books. Those are intended for a young audience, and we'll buy them anyway because they're pony and they're cheap. But Hasbro would have to be pretty crazy to make a coloring book for an older audience!

So this is a book for the fans. It's intended for all ages to enjoy, whether you’re young or just young at heart. There’s fun and games and puzzles, some that any kid can enjoy, some that will challenge even the smartest adult. There are mazes, word searches, word scrambles, The Great and Powerful Crossword, and ... 20 pages of nonogram puzzles, including two very challenging "expert mode" ones of Pinkie Pie and The Great and Powerful Trixie! What's a nonogram? The book will show you what to do.

It's a storybook too. You can read along with the story of the first episode, of how Twilight Sparkle first came to Ponyville and discovered the magic of friendship, whether you’re reading to a loved one or reading to yourself. And, of course, you can get out your colored pencils, markers or crayons and color in all your favorite characters!

There's Lyra, Bon Bon, Derpy Hooves, The Great and Powerful Trixie, Octavia, DJ P0N-3 Vinyl Scratch, Big Macintosh, Apple Bloom, Cheerilee, and many more!

It's all traced or referenced from screen grabs of the actual TV show, so all the characters are on model and look like they should. It was all drawn traditionally, pen on paper, and a lot of work went into giving it just the right look. Mostly low-res screen grabs were used to give the right proportions without just tracing everything. Certain pages were referenced with thanks to the DeviantArt MLP Vector Club.

This was all written, designed and drawn by Garrett Gilchrist (, who you might also know for the WhoSprites Doctor Who lost episode animation project, the feature film Shamelessly She-Hulk, and The Thief and the Cobbler Recobbled Cut.

This is a not for profit work of fan art. No money will ever be made from this. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic © 2011, Hasbro.

Is there some sort of program or how to on printing this and making it like a real coloring book bound and everything? As in printed on both sides of the paper and folded down the middle?

A print shop or vanity press would do it but it would cost a little money.

This is so amazing! Top-notch quality work here! Like, professional "official" quality. What's funny is that Hasbro couldn't make a coloring book this good. Of course, they probably outsource the job of making their current My Little Pony coloring books to some unheard of company, but they should be paying YOU to print THIS book.

"Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of merely a descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves." C.S. Lewis

"To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these are the marks of childhood and adolescence." C.S. Lewis

"When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." C.S. Lewis

Hasbro needs to sell this, and you need to get 100% of the profit. xD

Love this idea. This book is even better than the one you can buy from Walmart now. I cannot express my happiness enough about my fan-girl yelp of joy with a close friend over this. Ink worth every single page.

Should I print this or should I save the ink for school? I'll go print it.

but those weren't friendship is magic, i like the mlp fim stuff not the old 1 but yeah i might get the mlp fim toys or book XD

I completely LOVED the first book. My daughter had a Pony Themed birthday, so I printed a bunch of pages and colored them for decor. Do you take requests? The only page I had issue with was the full page of Nightmare Moon because she was mostly inked in already. I was wondering if you have any b&w outlines of her?
Adore your work!
tygerbug Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! I'm glad the book lent something to your daughter's birthday! I like to think these books are fun for kids and adults.

Nightmare Moon is nearly black so it's hard to make a coloring page of her. I included her to tell the story. I'm not sure how I'd show her otherwise.

I do take special requests and do commission drawings, usually for $50 apiece.
