If you're going to be in or around Los Angeles next weekend (Sat. Oct. 13) please join me and animation voice actors Tara Strong and Tom Kenny for the Wildlife Learning Center's SAFARI SOCIAL FUNDRAISER!  Meet a two-toed sloth!  Feed a porcupine! Hold a Tawny Owl!

PET ONE OF THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!


Wildlife Learning Center is a small, fantastic zoo in Sylmar, CA.  They care for a menagerie of exotic animals and train them as ambassadors to help educate the public about wildlife preservation.  Many of their animals are rescues from pet owners who kept them illegally, or rescues from the wild where various injuries would make their survival impossible.  The fundraiser is being held to raise money for the animals' care.

What's extra special about Wildlife Learning Center is that being a small zoo, you get the chance to see these animals up close!  And at these fundraisers, you also get the opportunity to interact with many of them as well--- something hard to come by at larger zoos.  To see photos of all the animals you can meet, please visit their website here.

Hope to see you there!

I SOOOOOO want to meet all of you!!!!!!! I love the work you have done so far and will probably enjoy your future stuff. Tom Kenny is an amazing voice actor and Tara Strong is my favorite voice actress. I really want to become a working professional voice actor and I want to do a show with Tara and others. Well at least I'm doing something to make that happen besides wishing.

It was such a treasure meeting you today! As well as Tara Strong and Tom Kenny, I almost teared up! Well, in all honesty I did afterwards, but all the same, thank you for making my day-no- my LIFE magical.


Oh and those Pinkie Pie and Applejack drawings you did for my brother and I are great, we're having them framed XD

It was great meeting you and Tara Strong today! I may not have said much but on the inside I was geeking out like crazy when I met you two! The fanboy in me wanted to say more, maybe show you my work, or something but I am quite content and more than happy with my autographs, picture, and the chance to see you both in person. Plus, I did not want to take up too much of your time considering how many other excited fans there were. It was great to see you and hope to see more of your works in the future (Keeping an eye out for Wander Over Yonder)!



PS When I mentioned Kim Dwinell, I meant to mention that she showed us storyboards and your work in "Cats Don't Dance" as examples and for inspiration in her animation course. It was cool. :)

PPS I was the "ARTIST".

It was great seeing you today at the Wildlife Learning Center. Our heart to heart has given me a lot of things to think about. I feel more confused about my future than before, but also like I'm seeing things more clearly. I appreciate your advice. I hope you like the comic I made. I honestly, have no idea why my drawing skill changes dramatically from one panel to another, other than a need for more practice. Most of those panels were drawn same minutes from each other.

Total pleasure meeting you! =) My hubby needed a little courage, but he's over the moon with big grins right now. Thank you for helping with this fund raiser. The Wildlife Learning Center was one of my favorite spots when I was little, and I'd love for it to continue on for any little ones of my own to see!

What was your favorite animal encounter there?

If there's anybody who drives from Pasadena by car, please let me know. I just have to be back around 7pm cuz I'll have a class I can't miss! We could share gas costs.
So if there's anybody, feel free to contact me :)
