Youthful Indiscretions

When I first started watching and drawing pandas, people would send me pictures of pandas from the internet, as well as any video that featured an adorable panda. Okay, I think all pandas are adorable, even muddy messy ones.

But one video made the rounds more often than any other. Recently, an interesting discovery was made by the good folks at Pandas International, because, enquiring minds wanted to know!

What could this youthful Indiscretion be?

Of course, my other favorite panda video is this one.  I really want that job.

Panda Commerce news!
I just added several new designs to my Pandyland Store on Cafe Press! Included are items for Princess Pinky’s Presidential Campaign, as well as a mug celebrating the Panda Kindergarten! Here are the new designs, for bumper stickers, t-shirts and sweat shirts, and magnets. 10% of the profits from June sales will go to Pinky’s campaign…um…I mean Enrichment Fund at the NZ. Many of her toys are funded by donations from her loving fans, so this is a chance to put panda satire to work for Pinky. Here are the new designs:

Nobody expects the Panda Kindergarten!

      Pinky has always been very expressive. It has been fun for me to watch the evolution of my ability to portray all the pandas expressions. I have to give a lot of credit to Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson for showing me the way. Also the books on comics theory by Scott McCloud. They should be required reading for anyone wanting to do comics or children’s illustration.

    Can you imagine the panda playground lady after work with friends? “Man, I’m tired. I had to run around all day teaching the cubs how to use the new playground equipment and…”
    “Oh, shut UP!”

      I can see it now! Everyone would get up and leave the table. When you are slide instruction engineer for a bunch of panda cubbies, you don’t get to complain!
