Hey! It’s Groundhog Day

For years, I’ve been thinking I needed to write a Groundhog Day ‘toon, and wouldn’t you know, I don’t start thinking about it until…you guessed it, Groundhog Day. This is also the day that I traditionally procrastinate sending out holiday cards until, and then don’t do that either. So sue me. No, don’t! Just kidding!!!! People ask me how I find the time to be an incredibly gifted painter, write hilarious cartoons, and wrestle 5 acres of Northwest woods into submission. The answer is, I don’t do a lot of things that I probably should do, like clean the house and wash the dishes on some sort of regular basis.

To this I say, do you want to have new cartoons to read each week, or would you rather be able to eat off my bathroom floor without contracting a vile disease or swallow a hairball?

I thought so. You’re welcome.

And it was ever thus….

Meihem, not Mayhem.

Well, they did hang their coats up.

If I have but one life to live, let me give it for a cuppycake.

And for all you brave souls who listened to HWMNBN’s SOTU address. Congratulations. You are far braver than I am. In truth, by this weekend, I will probably have watched it in tiny bits and pieces that I can endure without running out of the house screaming in terror. I am keeping informed, as best I can, but there are limits to my endurance. I call my Senators and Congressman regularly. I’m trying to bring light into the world through art and humor. And I’m going to watch as many panda videos as I can.

Viva les Pandas!

    Keep the panda toons coming – we can’t see your house from here anyway. Also, a few pandas set loose on 5 acres of woodland keep things in check. I’ve heard they’re supposed to be excellent pruners.

    My hand-painted lithograph of Bai Yang has arrived – beautiful! Thank you!!

      So glad you liked your lithograph. I need to write a post about the process of making those, as the plates are hand drawn, hand printed (on my etching press) and then hand watercolored. I thought you might enjoy that one. #PandaArt

        Anne, please do write a post about the process you follow for the lithographs. We’d all be very interested in that!

    Cartoons and fabulous paintings over a clean house – always.I remember those snow-suits and how hard it was to move in them. 🙂 From what I have heard about the Orange Menace’s speech is the it was mostly a Stephen Miller anti-immigration rant and a few sentences to mollify the least hard-line Republicans. Honestly his voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

      I agree on both counts! I don’t need to subject myself to his image or voice. There are plenty of places to stay informed.

      Hard to remember there was a time Pinky alternated between sweet and naive, and willful and intent on world domination.

What does your inner panda think?
