Wander Over Yonder by Craig McCrackenYou may or may not know, but my husband is Craig McCracken, creator of The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. A couple years ago, Craig spent some of his free time drawing out some vignettes of a strange muppet-like, zen, hippie creature/guy who wanders his world observing nature--- why? Well, we don't know, but it made for some really cool drawings, so we made some shirts, iron-on patches and a "sketchbook" featuring a compilation of the inked artwork to sell at San Diego Comic Con.The stuff hasn't been available since that convention.... until now!!! Visit CraigMcCracken.net and check out our soulful Wander swag!Tees come in men's and women's sizes, and the sketchbook comes SIGNED by Craig ---- if you would like a dedication, just slip us a note in the "message to seller" section when you check out with P
New Dora the Explora?A couple weeks ago Nick and Mattel released this teaser for a new, 'tweenaged Dora.......and parents FREAKED OUT!!!!!From Yahoo news: "NEW YORK When toy maker Mattel, working with Nickelodeon, announced earlier this month that a "tween" version of Nick's beloved "Dora the Explorer" cartoon character would be unveiled in the fall, the response was overwhelming ... overwhelmingly negative.Dora the streetwalker. A sexed-up version of a children's icon. A poor example for kids.Those were just some of the terms tossed around the blogosphere after Mattel released a silhouette of the "new" Dora, whose image was drastically changed from the endearing tomboy look Dora fans grew to love, with her bowl-cut hairdo, T-shirt and red shorts. This new Dora appeared to have long flowing hair, and was wearing what seemed a scanty skirt, emphasizing her long, shapely legs."Well, everyone freaked out so bad, Mattel and

My friends need your help!Some of you who have followed me in the past may know about this wonderful little zoo called The Wildlife Learning Center. WLC 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.Besides offering animals topnotch care, WLC is an amazing place to visit. This zoo is small, so visitors get to see the animals more up close and intimately than larger zoos. Even
Here comes Wander Over Yonder!Some of you may be wondering what I've been up to since my departure from MLP a couple years ago.

Join me at Wildlife Learning Center!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 actu
more SBFFFrom this week's TV Guide:March 2-3Short StuffSaturday mornings are super again. Harkening back to the glory days the 1970s and '80s when kids got their weekends going with Super Friends and School House Rock, Cartoon Network is launching DC Nation, a programming block that showcases the heroes of the DC Comics library. Anchoring the hour will be the CGI show Green Lantern: The Animated Series (10am/9c) and the continuation of the first season of Young Justice (10:30am/9:30c). Scattered Throughout the hour are animated shorts and interstitials with news and vignettes from around the DC universe.Though some of the shorts feature big names like Superman and Batman, many will put the spotlight on "characters we've always wanted to see animated, but that might not be able to support a whole series," says Peter Giardi, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Animation, which is coordinating the block. Among the second-tier characters featured are Black Lightenin
Milky Way and the Galaxy GirlsThese recent submissions will seem redundant to anyone who has been to my website, but here they are: Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls! They were all finalized in Adobe Illustrator, but all the creative decisions were made with a pencil and a piece of paper, so I categorized them all as tradtional art. I have a whole lot of new Galaxy Girl art I would like to present, so I figured I introduce them all first.For those of you who read my last post, this is the project that is in limbo at the studio I work at. Maybe one day it will be a cartoon, maybe not. My original intention in their design was for a line of dolls, but it has proven difficult to get the opportunity to pitch to toy companies. The few I made it through to had this to say: "We love it!! Make a cartoon and give us a call!!" Sigh.... What a tough business.Well, if they never see the light of day, hopefully they can offer up a
other stuff I doFINALLY! It's been a long time, but for those wondering what I've been doing all these months that I haven't been posting any new art, I have something to share.This is art (posted at BleedingCool.com) of Supergirl from my upcoming shorts "Super Best Friends Forever!!" scheduled to air for DC Nation on Cartoon Network.I'll be sharing more very soon!

Equestria Girls 3 BookA book entitled "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls 3" had recently popped up on Amazon. The author, Perdita Finn, is also the author of the second book of the trilogy, "Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks".My Little Pony: Equestria Girls 3 Amazon PageSo far, the book seems to be legit, so we can probably expect it this October. Does this mean, however, that we will be receiving a third EG movie?
Happy (Almost) New YearThe time has come to close the book on another year, and I don't want to waste your important partying time with a lot of jibba-jabba, but thanks everyone for another fantastic year! We got off to a bit of a rought start with things like Las Pegasus Unicon, Alicorn Twilight and Equestria Girls. But as time has gone on, as with most shake-ups and flare-ups, we adapted overcame, and perceived. It's a wonderful thing being a part of this community. We have a new year of brightly colored candy horses ahead of us and...well, knows what is to come after that! I'm sure there will be more bizarre, unwanted developments (Rainbow Power is looking to be the next likely development!) but whatever comes I plan to still be here and hope you will be as well! Thanks everyone for 2013. Now let's get out there and kick 2014's sorry butt!PS- Butts.
New Images of Adagio Dazzle and Vinyl ScratchMore images have popped up of Adagio Dazzle and Vinyl Scratch, which were found via background assets within the code of the newly updated My Little Pony website.No promo videos for these characters yet, but if the website's any indication, we can hopefully expect those to come soon.==> Equestria Girls Promo Videos
We've got the date for the new seasonand you will won't believe when the new new season will be...https://31.media.tumblr.com/9fe7ec89a689503b0e7db53a1595139c/tumblr_n4t4mgZRGY1so8mzio1_500.pngon May 31st, 2014That's right, we are getting a new season early this yearall I can say is... HOW LUCKY ARE WE?!I mean first we got the Season 2 premiere to come first, we got a whole bunch of leaked episodes from our friends in Jolly Old England, and now we're getting the Season 3 premiere in only 5 weeks from this Saturday (today is April 29th, 2014) and that it premieres after only 9 weeks from the Season 2 finale?!, seriously, the bronies must be totally jealous right now!So what do you think of this great news, let us know in the comments below...
is it just me, or..Has there just been a really sudden HATE spree towards Frozen lately? Yes yes, from the start I expected people who were going to hate the movie, they have their opinions. But for some reason I've spontaneously been starting to see people starting to hate the guts out of it just now, like I've never seen it happen as much before. And they always seem to express their hatred towards it in such an "in your face" attitude.I've probably just haven't been catching up on the Internet, I guess.
Is this the END of Nintendo?I don't know if all of you saw the news recently, but according to some info provided, looks like Nintendo could be in deep sh*t at the moment.Nintendo's share value over the past five yearsJust when we thought one of the huge pioneers of videogames could be in top of the world.....according to some investigations, the recent years weren't that good for nintendo. You need a reason? well, let's call them Wii U and 3DS. Yep, probably you will hate me if you are a huge fan of them, but just telling what I investigated. It's not the first time Nintendo got beaten in the console war (on certain generations). Check for example the Nintendo 64. The Super Nintendo was a huge hit, so at the entrance of the 3D world, Nintendo 64 was popular, I don't doubt it, but Sony just came with the PlayStation and said "hey world, we have something better!", and they weren't lying, Playstation 1 simply destroyed N64, but talking about sales (If you think the N64 was better, then that's your problem, I lik
