My company, Shapeways has just launched our first step into enabling talented MLP fanartists to work with Hasbro owned IP, and sell their creations above board! 

The first license is granted to a select number of 3D artists including Brandon Lee JohnsonPaul PhilbinChristophe VidalMelinda Rose, and Brian Harris to create artwork based on My Little Pony.”

Fan communities and artists should be able to work with companies to create derivative works, but this has always been a really frustrating thing to deal with, from both sides.  Hopefully this will stand as an example of how a company as large as Hasbro can acknowledge, and work with its fandoms. Kudos to Hasbro for taking this step out into untested waters! :D

(Oh my god working for Shapeways is so cool. Sometimes I can’t even.)

Wherever perfectionism is driving, shame is riding shotgun. Perfectionism is not about healthy striving, which you see all the time in successful leaders, it’s not about trying to set goals and being the best we can be, perfectionism is basically a cognitive behavioral process that says if I look perfect, work perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid shame, ridicule, and criticism. It’s a defense mechanism.

"Why Doing Awesome Work Means Making Yourself Vulnerable"

So, I’ve been waiting for someone to explain this extremely simple concept to me my entire life.
