Jen Bricker's Smilez by johnjoseco Jen Bricker's Smilez by johnjoseco
So while I was there at the MLP Coronation Event last Saturday, I meet Tara Strong. She gave me a hug and all and then she talks to this lady sitting in a wheelchair, "Hey! You should let him draw you as a pony!"

This awesome lady is Jen Bricker and her pony is named, Smilez.

From Wikipedia: an American acrobat and aerialist. She is the sister of gymnast Dominique Moceanu. Born without legs, she was given up for adoption by her parents.


You can watch all about it [link]


Very awesome lady and I'm so glad I was able to draw this for her.

You can follow her on twitter @JenBricker1 and Facebook: JenBricker1
