Pony Pals Game Update:
Jane Crandal, owner of Wiggins’ Crandal Stables announced today
that noted equine artist Lyndsey W. has joined the Club Pony Pals
team to create pony and horse images.
Some of her artwork has already appeared in the Wiggins Weekly as
choices for the Club Pony Pals bookmark that will be included with
orders for Pony Pals books from Scholastic this fall.
“When I saw Lyndsey’s drawings and paintings on the
web, I knew right away that they were created by someone who has spent
a lot of time around horses” noted Mrs. Crandal.
“It is every so important for the ponies and horses in virtual
Wiggins to be not only accurate but also that they have the right
“spirit” or “feel” to them. I know that when
I see a painting or drawing with it, it makes me feel almost like
I am looking at a real pony or horse” Crandal continued.
“We interviewed several artists whose work is quite good.
But Lyndsey’s images have that special sort of spark in them
that shows the artist really loves horses” she said.
Lyndsey and her husband have horses of their own and are surrounded
by many, many others. She has lots of subjects to study when she has
a particular piece of art in mind.
With a Master of Fine Arts degree, Lyndsey works not only in physical
paint and pencil but also digitally on a computer.
“Lyndsey’s ability to work with images in a computer
is important to us” continued Mrs. Crandal, “everything
in the new Pony Pals game will be sent from a big computer out to
visitors who come to the site.”
