It's our pleasure to debut the new header for Lady Business! It's us — in pony form!


Individual ponies!







We owe huge thanks to our artist, [tumblr.com profile] justira. Ira is a artist in fandom but also does original work, and this isn't their first foray into pony adventure time. You can check out more of their artwork at their tumblr art tag or see their professional illustration work in action at Aikonia. They went above and beyond with our artwork by helping us integrate it into our journal and being super flexible with our requests. We're honored that they accepted our commission proposal amid all their other obligations, and thank them very much for creating such great art for us! :D

Those are awesome!
I always feel like I should be part of the MLP fandom, but I never watched it as a kid and still haven't. There's always tomorrow though

I grew up on the 80s flavor of MLP, but I love the reboot so much. It's not perfect, but if you like stories about friendship, it's worth checking out. :D

Ana and Jodie did, but Ira chose mine because I was 100% indecisive. My answer to this question was "Rainbows and storm clouds and lightning and raining frogs??? I'm like if Stormdancer and Starlight from Rainbow Brite had a baby pony named Thunderbolt or something. THEN AGAIN I am also lazy, so maybe a pile of blankets. THEN AGAIN....I'm mouthy, so maybe a megaphone?"

I think one can only be 96% indecisive.

Still very recognizable and smile-inducing.

I've been somewhat privy to these as works in progress, and now they're done I just have to say they are so very cute! Y'all are my favorite feminist ponies on DW, and for Renay at least, the picture is right on! :P

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
