Pandward Bound!

Just when Pinky thought that all of the attention would be on her, look what has happened to ruin her dreams of Pandward Bound Dominance! Poor, poor Pinky…she never gets a break. Maybe Bubba will have some wise words that will lessen Pinky’s shock and disappointment.

Ha! Don’t count on it! Let’s see who else might be Pandward Bound!

What a wonderful surprise! Um…NOT!!!!

Stay tuned for a bonus cartoon tomorrow sometime!

Banky Pig is Not Going!

Oh, that Pinky…while Bob and Mehitabel work on doting the “I’s” and crossing the “T’s” on their Kickstarter project, Pinky is busy packing for her summer adventure. Bubba had better keep an eye on Pinky, to make sure there are no unauthorized packing of a certain Banky Pig or there will be trouble for sure.

When the real life Pinky Bao Bao went to China, I had to make a decision about whether she would stay in the Panda Chronicles. I mean, who would be there to torment Bubba if she left? Plus it would have made me sad. But I started thinking about possible story lines with Pinky and the Meihems in China, and I’m just giving them summer jobs, okay? It’s not like this is reality, right? I can have them live anywhere I want! Take that reality!

And now, our story continues….

What Pinky did on her summer vacation Part 2

Who even knew pandas took summer vacations? Or that they attended classes at The Institute for Inner Panda Studies? Here in the Pacific Northwest, it is suddenly acting like summer, even though it is still May. But June-uary is just around the corner, and just because we are having nice weather this week, is no guarantee that it will continue through, say, late June and early July, in case anyone happens to be in the area then.

But Meanwhile, Pinky is beginning her summer vacation adventure!

summer vacation

Mei is certainly ready for summer vacation, but maybe Bubba needs some summer duds!

In a little more than two weeks, I’ll be launching my Kickstarter campaign to travel to China (and visit PINKY! – and the panda kindergarten). There’s lots you can to do to help, besides donating money. (Although that’s nice too!) Sharing my project with your social networks is one of the most helpful things you can do to help it succeed. Stay tuned! I’ll let you know when it goes live!

Panda ON!

What I did this summer …

…an essay by Pinky Panda… Yes, Pinky is starting to make plans for her summer vacation, or maybe Mommee Mei is making those plans, because if there is one more summer like the last one, bootinis are not going to be enough to quiet the pounding in her head.

So!

But first, a very Happy Birthday, to friend of the internet, soon to be friend IRL Vicky Vladic. Somehow your birthday was written down in my calendar, so even though it will be the day AFTER your birthday by the time you read this, let me say, a very happy birthday to you. I hope there will be lots of cuppycakes!

And now, a summer adventure for Pinky Panda!

What could be in a letter to Pinky?

Meanwhile, I am beginning to gear up for my Kickstarter project! Stay tuned, oh panda fans! And look out Mr. Kitty! The panda kindergarten is on it’s way!

Let’s celebrate baby pandas!

Um…I just returned from a 10 hour lunch. Should I be telling you this? This does remind me of yet another reason why I should schedule posts ahead of time, because you never know when you will be having so much fun at a lunch get-together, that then you will be invited for dinner too.

Ahem…

SO, LET’S BRING ON THE BABY PANDAS!!!!

Twinkies 2.0

Finale: KittySue and the Three Pandas

Oh my! What a dramatic ending after a wild ride! Do not mess with pandas! You will be sorry. Pandas are not joking around (or so I’ve heard.)

Nothing like drying laundry in the sun to get rid of …um…unpleasant stains and odors. Pandas take note.

What a lovely day for the 3 pandas to relax at home!

Panda Satire update!

I want to give you, my long suffering  most loyal fans a heads up. In barely a months time I will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise some of the money for a trip to China, that has been in the… what if…should we,… hey, do you want to… stages of planning for going on about 2 years. Yes, Bob T Panda is going to go to China and frolic with toddler pandas.

This will be both a fine art and panda satire expotition, and besides frolicking with baby pandas, I will be busy sketching and photographing not only pandas, but also the landscape, architecture and people of China. I generally come back from a trip like this with renewed creativity, and a barrel full of source material.

Stay tuned for project launch news! I’m expecting to be ready to launch the project by June 7th.

One of my traveling companions having lunch with a friend. Picture me, Bob T, doing this very thing! Thanks Cami!

Episode 12: You Have Got to be Kidding Me

Oh man! I thought pandas were sweet, cute, and cuddly, and don’t have a vicious bone in their bodies. Could this have a parallel in the real world, and give us any information why a certain spokesperson for #NMP has seeming disappeared with out a trace? Are you kidding me? You can’t mean that PANDAS had anything to do with the real life disappearance…

The three pandas aren’t kidding around here, KittySue…

kidding

Pandas are very misunderstood, in so many ways….

Tune in Sunday the the dramatic conclusion of KittySue and the Three Pandas!

Meanwhile, I want to thank everyone who has contributed to my If you give a panda a cuppycake campaign. I really appreciate your generosity. You guys are the bears!

The Stars Have Dimmed

Before we get to the next episode of the KittySue and the Three Pandas saga, I want to take a moment to say farewell and remember a stalwart supporter of panda satire who has crossed over the bridge to the great beyond this week. I speak of RumpyDog, who has made the life of his typer (that’s what we call those who type on the computer, for those whose paws cannot navigate a keyboard) Jen T. and several kitties, richer a thousand times over.

Those of you with pets, know of what I speak. We know that they are here for such a short time, compared to our own lifespans, but they bring so much to our lives. Rumpy had his own blog where he wrote about animal welfare issues, and life with a household full of cats. He even made a guest appearance here once or twice. Rumpy lived a good life once he found his forever home and he will be missed by all who knew him. Even the cats.

Run free, Rumpy. We won’t forget you.

Huzzah for Rumpy Dog!

Meanwhile, back at the pandas’ cottage…

Can she really DO that????

Oh my! I am on the edge of my seat, and only 2 more episodes to go!!!

How will it all end????

Meanwhile, I’ve made a change or two here. You can read the account of my pandapiphany, which is now public. Just hover the mouse over the Cast and Crew heading at the top of the page and another hidden page listing will appear, called From Pandapiphany to Princess Pinky
click on that and you can read an illustrated account of my journey into panda satire. It includes VERY early drawings that have not ever been published here. Enjoy!

From time to time, people have suggested that I put a link on the blog so that they could contribute to panda satire. I’ve thought about opening a Patreon account, but ultimately decided that it would be like running a full time Kickstarter campaign, and really, I felt it would result in far more whining than I really wanted to do. I recently set up a PayPal.me account as a way to do remote sales. As an experiment, I decided to set up a link so that if people wanted to, they could make small donations to this blog.

Using the public radio model, where  content is provided for free, and if people enjoy it, they can chose to support it, if they are able to do so. I feel strongly that anyone should be able to read my cartoons for free, and not have paid subscriptions or annoying ads on my site. (Well, other than me whinging to you about Buy My Books! every now and again. But you know…a bear has to buy the occasional cuppycake and pay the mortgage on her cave.)

Look for the surrealistic panda with a cuppycake in the sidebar to the right, click on it, and it will take you to my PayPal.me thingie.

Follow the panda. or the cuppycake, to support panda satire!

See you on Wednesday for the next exciting episode of the KittySue and the Three Pandas saga!

Episode 10: The Discovery of KittySue

Quick! Go upstairs! Rescue Banky Pig and General Bun! The discovery of KittySue is sure to be shocking to the panda family! What with the devastation in the kitchen of the pandas’ cottage, who knows what horrors will be waiting for them upstairs!

What discovery is waiting for them upstairs? Isn’t the devouring of Babee bear’s cuppycake bad enough????

Episode 9: KittySue Discovered?

Oh my ears and whiskers! I can hardly stand the suspense! Could KittySue really be after Banky Pig? Are they going to check for finger prints? What kind of insurance do pandas have? What does this episode have in store for the three pandas?

Watch episode 9 and find out for yourself!

Is this episode exciting? you bet it is!

I hope everyone had a good Earth Day! Pandas would like to remind you that being endangered is no laughing matter. If you are interested in helping actual pandas, we can recommend two wonderful organizations that would appreciate your support in supporting pandas. Pandas International is a long time friend to bears, and another organization that we are particularly impressed by is PDX Wildlife, who does scientific research about…are you ready for this?…PANDAS!!!! Check them out and maybe slip them a few bucks to assist with their research.

Remember, science is real, and without pandas, there could be no panda satire. Thank you to scientists and all who marched yesterday in support of science. Huzzah for you all!!!

Panda On!
