Day 16: 31 Days of Pandas

Oh my, we are halfway through 31 Days of Pandas! Tomorrow we bring you the next installment of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations. I have to admit, it’s kind of a Cliff’s Notes of the 101 Dalmatians story, but I wanted to get it done by the end of the year so I could go into the new book, The Panda Chronicles Book 8: The Pinky Defense. Huzzah! Credit for the title goes to a friend in the twittersphere, who, as it happens, is a lawyer from across the pond. A fan of cats and pandas, she has joined the pandaratti on Twidder, as well as a member in good standing in the Pinky fan club.

There may be other pandas, but there will never be another Pinky! “Fank goodness,” says Bubba.

Taxes

Oppressive is a very fluid concept for Congress as they work on their so called #TaxPlan

And if you’re wondering why Six and Sebben are still appearing so small in the ‘toons, well, here’s why! Is this MY fault?

wished

Would it be such a bad thing?

Summit

“Why can’t my children be as well behaved as Lun Lun’s,” mused Mei Xiang

story

I wouldn’t believe any of Pinky’s stories, Bubba!

Don’t you think it would be a good idea to read all the other books in the Panda Chronicle series before Book 8 comes out? Heh!

Panda On!

Day 15: 31 Days of Pandas

A happy (if late) Fabulous Furry Friday Day 15 of 31 Days of Pandas!

The weather was too beautiful to stay indoors yesterday, so I did not get today’s post set up to launch in the wee hours. A beautiful day in mid December is a precious thing and ought not to be wasted!

You should also know that I am hard at work on compiling Book 8 of The Panda Chronicles!!! Huzzah! Since my process of writing and drawing the ‘toons is a bit by the seat of my pants, I always need to take some time to rearrange the actual physical cartoons into the order which they really should be, as opposed to the order they popped out of my head. All of my writer friends will tell you it’s all in the editing and revising.

Next week, we will start with that favorite Holiday Classic, It’s a WUnderful Life, starring Mr. Wu and Bee, the Bear, as the Christmas angel who shows Wu the error of his ways. But now, let’s dip into the ‘toons of last year, in honor of Doug Jones’ win in Alabama! Maybe all is not lost after all!

Are all these paper clips mine?

March

Whats a protest without pandas?

Hey, save some cuppycakes for me!

And here’s a photo I took at our own Million Pandas March in beautiful Langley on Whidbey Island. (Note: I am about in the middle of the crowd.)

Day 14: 31 Days of Pandas

All I want for Christmas…

On with our encore presentations of Panda-extravaganzas! But first, I have another new post on the Whidbey Island Arts Council Website and you can read it here! I even snuck in a few pandas. Hee Hee!

But now, a few holiday memories with some of your favorite pandas!

Nooooo! Not the PINK crayon!

May we say that The Panda Chronicles Coloring Book would make an excellent present?

You better watch out….

Once again proving the intransigence of Pinky, and the omnipotence of Mommy Mei

Who didn’t have a sibling like Pinky?

Fa-la-la-la-la deck the halls with lots of pandas,

Day 13: 31 days of Pandas & Episode 7 101 Bebe Pandas

As I compile this post, Alabama voters are going to the polls to decide whether they want to elect the #Trumple candidate or...GASP!!!! a DEMOCRAT!!!!! All I can say, is that with the moves toward voter suppression in black and Democratic districts, it is unclear if this will be a free and fair election. I only have one thing to say about this: If you have to cheat to win, it’s not really winning, is it?

But meanwhile, baby pandas are in peril! Let’s go to the next episode of…

101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

Inspector Panda has arrived! He’ll…um…solve everything!

And yes, we have used this joke before!

Be the Bear!

Day 12: 31 Days of Pandas

We’re not even halfway through the month, so there are many more pandas to come!

This is a good thing, because we need LOTS of distractions this month. Between the disaster tax bill (email or call your Congress folks and ask them to vote NO!!!) the slide into the darkest days of the year, and all the craziness in the news, we need all the laughs we can get.

On top of all the nonsense coming out of our nations capitol, recent news of the illness of one of my long time panda fans and supporters has been on my mind. ALS is a devastating disease for which there is no cure. If it seems strange to be concerned about someone I’ve never met in real life, consider this: the people who read my ‘toons here and in books, and who frequently comment here or in conversations on Twidder and Fezbook, have become real to me. They have become real friends.

I’ve gotten to know them through our conversations in these cyber meeting places. They share pictures and stories of their lives. They cheer me on in my various Kickstarter projects. They have embraced these funny panda characters that have sprung forth from my head and they believe in them. They believe in me.  I am so very honored and grateful that you come here and tell me that the day’s ‘toon lifted your spirits, or made you sad, or pushed you to the edge of your seat in anticipation of the next episode.

So, Sandy H, if you are reading today’s post, please know that I have been grateful for the time you’ve been with me. I’m glad you have your family and puppies close at hand to see you through this. You will be missed.

Meanwhile, Let’s Get Some Pandas Out Here…

Episode 6: 101 Bebe Panda-Nation

Pinky has called in reinforcements, knowing that she will be in big trouble if she doesn’t get her brother and all the rest of the baby pandas left in her charge, back from the evil Babette!

You shouldn’t have opened the door, Pinky!!!!!!!

This may be a job for...Inspector Panda!!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their 31 Days of Pandas! I know that it’s helping to distract me from…um…stuff. Like the fall of civilization. I think I need a cuppycake.

Panda On!

Day 9: 31 Days of Pandas

The story of Wu running away to join the circus was one of the first longer stories I wrote about the pandas. And it was the first that took Wu away from home and put him in some potential peril. I remember that, as I parceled the story out in dribs and drabs, that some people got very anxious and wrote in to yell at me. Geez! Trust your storyteller, okay? I would never let anything really bad happen to Mr. Wu, now would I? (I mean Pinky’s birth was not really my fault, right?)

Anyway…on with the show! The Next episode of Bears Under the Big Top!

We think laughter is the best medicine. However, it should not be the only one!

Day 8: 31 Days of Pandas

On with our encore presentations for Wu: This is Your LIFE!!!! What’s up next for the adventures of Wu? Well, let’s just pop into the old archives and see what has frosting on it!

But first, I wanted to let you know that I’ve just started writing a monthly (or so) blog for our own Whidbey Island Arts Council. It is more of an “arts on Whidbey” sort of venue, but if that interests you, I hope you’ll check it out. Here is my first post for them!

But Meanwhile…what about the Wu Self???

Fanmail from some Flounder?

Uh oh…is this the beginning of another adventure for Mr. Wu?

Voices in the night, a ladder, a letter…adios…

“Are we there, yet?”

This is a case for…Inspector Panda!

Oh Boy! Tune in again tomorrow for the next installment of this story. And while we’re here, consider subscribing to this blog so you never have to worry about Fezbook deciding that this is not important enough to show up in your news feed! Pandas will arrive at your door and demand cookies! Well, okay, they’ll show up in your email inbox, but that’s kind of similar, right?

Panda On!

Day 7: 31 Days of Pandas

Oh my! It is hard to read the Twidder News these days! Better head over here and catch up on some vintage panda stories.

Nothing like a snappy graphic to um…solve a problem!

So much for those new navigation systems…or is it “nagagation systems”?

I just had to include something with that provocative “rear panda view” you know!

I might have left a few of the segments out but if you had The Panda Chronicles Book 4: The Book of Wu, you’d have the whole story! Huzzah!

And just to remind us of what’s been going on around here this last year…

It is too much to BEAR!

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
