I can't believe it's been a whole year since I've updated my journal! Sorry for being so out of touch. As usual, my lame excuse is that I'm busy - but for a not-lame reason, at least. If you haven't already heard, I'm directing my first feature film. Its an animated comedy based on the myth of Medusa. We're in the early phases of development at Sony Pictures Animation, and I'm in a daily state of shock and gratitude for the opportunity.

But that's not why I'm posting!

Ironically, and embarrassingly, the very last journal I posted - a whole year ago - was to announce the same thing. My pals at the Wildlife Learning Center in Sylmar, CA are holding their annual fundraiser on Oct. 25 from 4-7 and I'd like to extend an invitation to all my DA friends!

And just like last year, I'll be there to chat and sign stuff. So bring your MLP or Powerpuff goodies that are in need of a name scribbled on them! You can purchase tickets here. Please spread the word!

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 and Tank! 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.

Have you ever thought of selling Milky Way and The Galaxy Girls Prints/Posters? I would love to have Mars, Pluto, and Moon in my room! :D

If you ever plan on giving your Galaxy Girls their own show, here's my advice: See if you can open up your own studio so the likes of idiots such as those at Hasbro, Nickelodeon, and elsewhere don't butcher it.  Hey, if it worked for Don Bluth, it just might work for you, you know?  ;)

Don Bluth may not be the best example since his company no longer exists, so there's that.

Hi'ya. Ms. Faust! I just wanted to say; thanks for all the shows you did. I love the shows you did, so as the animation you helped and made. I really enjoyed going through my childhood watching your work, from the Iron Giant to PPG, together with Craig's awesome work too; and now, that child nostalgia and cheering joy continues to this days thanks to MLP :D

I got a big disappointment for Hasbro for not letting you continue working on Friendship is Magic :( your ideas were awesome! And totally innovative by the way.

Oh well... I don't want to bother you much :3 I'm passing through to tell that I'm expecting anxiously for your movie Medusa, I bet my bits it'll be awesome! And ask you how it's going your project of your toy line of the Galaxy Girls? I hope you find some company that can help you doing that true /)^3^(\!

Or unless you have already done that (>.>)...

Have a nice day (^~^)/... Night... Or wherever you're at x3

AHH its you!~!~
Ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh!~!~
I just wanna say, I love your show MLP and I wish you would still be directing it... Yes, the Hub makes good episodes, but your's always seemed to be better. Maybe it's just me...
Anyways, thank you so much for My Little Pony, it has brought me through emotional times, my friends and I could sit in front of the TV for HOURS on end smiling and laughing at those 6 ponies and a dragon. It makes me smile everytime I can relate to one of them, especially Dashie and Derpy. The situations they go through inspire me to be nicer, and Im sure other bronies and pegasisters can agree. I, for one, idolize you!~
So thanks again, for everything!~!~
Bye!~!~

Interesting...lots of folks taking a Rorschach Test on that shirt. It might have designed by a woman friend of his too. He should have been wearing an ESA shirt to promote that space agency and avoided the femme fatale film-noir genre.

Lobotomized characteristics of the characters design is off; but on a side note; I'll bet Sylvia in WOY would wear a shirt with a lobotomized Lord Hater and Commander Peepers on it. Wander would be dismayed and shocked Sylvia would do that, but she'd do it. Lord Hater, on the other hand, would love to have a shirt showing a lobotomized Wander and Sylvia.

Actually, That would probably make a pretty good episode.
