This Saturday, Oct. 12 from 4-7, please join me and my very good friends at the Wildlife Learning Center for their annual Safari Social and help raise funds for their wonderful organization. The Safari Social, held at WLC in Sylmar, CA, will raise money to care for the many wild animals that act as animal ambassadors at the center, educating the public about wildlife conservation. In fact, WLC has just been honored with a "Best in LA" Award from LA Weekly!

I will be there to hang out, chat, and sign stuff. I'd love to see you there! This small zoo offers a chance to see many exotic animals up close and much more personal than your average zoo. And at fundraisers like the Safari Social, you get the special opportunity to actually interact with many of these animals! You can pet a fennec fox, feed a porcupine or meet a sloth! Plus, My Little Pony fans will get to see the special animals named for MLP characters Angel, Tank and Owlycious! To see the kinds of animals you'll get to see, click here.

Those who've been following me for the last few years may know what WLC is all about, but in case you don't, here's my little spiel:

The Wildlife Learning Center  in Sylmar cares for a few dozen wild and exotic animals and treats them as "ambassadors" to help teach the public about wildlife conservation. What is so wonderful about WLC, is that many of the animals in there care are rescues. Many were illegally kept as pets and were either turned over or turned in to WLC for proper care. Others were animals born in the wild, but injury or acclimation to humans kept them from being able to survive in their natural habitats. Still others were exotic pets who grew too large or otherwise difficult to care for by their original owners. Without WLC, all of these rescued animals would be seriously ill or dead.

As a non-profit organization, WLC relies on the public to raise the funds they need to give these amazing animals the care they need, from proper nutrition and habitats to the best veterinary care. Coming for a visit will not only be fun, it will be for a good cause!

I write and I draw, but at the end of the day, I'm mostly a story teller and character creator. You may know me best as Creative Steward and Executive Producer of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but I was also a story artist on Powerpuff Girls and the head writer on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. My DA page tends to be rather quiet, but it mostly features things I used to do when I had time to work on personal projects like designing dolls and stuff.

I have a question about the wonderbolts, the 2 characters Spitfyre and Mistyfly, are they sisters because their cutie marks look the same in this book I have called the mini pony collectors guide.

Wow I'm a pretty big fan of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, but after seeing how well that was done I decided to go back to a childhood favorite; Power Puff Girls. I was surprised at how good it was, especially since I though the original My Little Pony was good. It would mean so much to me if you would check out my stuff. I'm no pro but I am trying to get there, someday anyway.

Lauren, you are a GODDESS to me. I love the PPG and Fosters but my favourite show of yours, without a doubt, is My Little Pony! :D I'm so glad I discovered MLP and the brony fandom last April! If the show hadn't come into my life, I wouldn't have found any inspiration for my final piece in my Art course, I wouldn't have gotten a high grade and I wouldn't be at college right now. :) Thank you, Lauren. Just... thank you.
