In the following days we had quite a busy schedule. On Friday, after a yummy seafood breakfast stop, we paid a morning visit to the California Wildlife Center and checked on the rescued baby elephant seals and sea lions.
the center is located in a dry valley on the beautiful hills of Malibu and we had a great time talking to the local scientists, staff and volunteers, very brave and friendly bunch! This is the main reason why the Gnomon Animal Show was started, because Travis and David wanted to do something for all those starving baby seals washing up along the beaches of Southern California.

we then left to go back near Universal Studios to get prepared for the gallery show and to pick up Terryl. She is such a great person, quite sure she is an elf and I'm glad to finally meet her, we all headed back to the Gnomon workshop in Hollywood. It was a nice cosy event as usual, with lots of interesting people and some beautiful oeuvres d'art were presented. I have been a big admirer of Claire wendling for a long time and here she was (accompanied by Stuart Ng), trying to move around incognito, but Manny wouldn't let her stay that way :) she is super cool and so humble it's unbelievable. I've let her try Art Rage on my Galaxy Note 4 and... voila, her first cellphone sketch! Pretty nice no? even though she is not proud of this digital doodle, Claire you're the best!

Damn I really missed you Kristy, David and Manny, so much fun it's weird as time stops when we are hanging out right? Hey everyone you should check David's excellent little documentary about the seals, it's worth it. The demos and line up of instructors was once again top notch, I've learned a lot, met some incredible people like Ms. Mallory, Kory Heinzen and Jonathan Kuo. Thanks a lot Gnomon (Alex, Travis and the whole crew) for hosting such a meaningful event. See y'all again soon!
