M. A. Larson is back! No marker-absorbent surface is safe!
There’s really no other way to say it: MLP-MSP without Larson would be like a Sharpie pencil: kindof similar, but ultimately just not as satisfying. We’re excited to bring M. A. Larson back for our third year! Our convention just wouldn’t be the same without our favorite Minnesotan native turned writer, novelist, and graffiti artist.
M.A. Larson was raised in Minneapolis, went to college in Miami, tended bar in New York, and now writes things in Los Angeles. He once ate duck web at a dim sum restaurant in New York City, and live termites in a jungle in Belize. He has written for a variety of animated series, from Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends to Sym-Bionic Titan.
His first novel, Pennyroyal Academy, was published in October of 2014. A sequel is expected in early 2016, and a movie adaptation currently in development at Lionsgate with Reese Witherspoon producing.
He hates long walks on the beach because it’s really hard to walk in sand.
