Pinky is in the HOUSE! (At least till Mommee talks to Nancy)

Oopsie. I think maybe Pinky is in the wrong House.

Surely you knew there would be a phone call from THE House to the PANDA House.

Pinky is in the House!!!!

Get Speaker Nancy on the phone!

Be the Bear!

Whew! Peel me off the ceiling!

Let’s start today’s post with a rousing cheer for all of you who supported me in my Kickstarter campaign to make the FIRST Panda Chronicles collector series pin!

Huzzah!!!!!! But now, let’s check in on the newest RED Panda babies at the Woodland Park Zoo…

Wee are pandas too!!!!

And now…Some final thoughts on my pin project…

I’m very excited that we had such a huge success, and reached the minimum amount needed to do the project, (on the FIRST DAY!!!), with a couple of add ons, to make them even more pandarific!: A printed card on which the pins will be mounted on AND, a stamp will be made for the back, that I can continue to use as I do more pins from this same manufacturer.

You might wonder why I choose the Kickstarter platform to do my projects and the main reason is this: I am a one person operation, with all sorts of plates and balls (and sometimes roaring chainsaws) in the air at the same time. The thing I love to do most is to make art and write and draw pandas (and engage in a liddle panda improv on twidder and fezbook) Soooo, if I can condense the ordering and fulfillment time into a short, finite period, it means I can spend most of my time making art, and a shorter, more focused time getting it to you.

This is also why coming up with an assortment of products (tee-shirts! Pillows! Jewelry! Phone covers!) doesn’t work very well in a one person shop. Turning my studio into a warehouse of products takes space and time, not to mention the product development and fulfillment research time. (Not to mention money.) One of my goals for this year is to develop my Redbubble shop so that those more varied products ARE available, but I won’t have to make, store, or ship them.

I like using Kickstarter to develop ideas that don’t exist in the instant order world of places like Cafe Press and Red Bubble. It allows me to design (fun!!!) and have someone produce the pins, and know that I have enough interest to make the project viable.

I’m really excited to get these pins in your hands. I’m hoping to design a new pin about every two months and I hope you’ll like the first ones enough to collect the whole set! Your enthusiastic response allows me to get some extra pins, so that a couple times a year, I can have special pin set sales (once there are enough pins to make sets!) and as new followers jump on the panda train, I’ll have previously made pins so that people can have all of them, at least till they’re all gone!

Thank all of you who supported this project, once again! I hope you’ll let me know who YOU think should have the honor of being on the next pin!

Thanks for Being the Bears,
Bob T Panda

Pinky pin! #ClapLouder


Pinky may have been put in Twidder Jail, but…

…I’m still there, kicking butt and taking names. Really…I love Panda twitter so much. FezBook has it’s good points too, but for some reason, it feels more vast and therefore fragmented and I miss a lot of posts.

Anyway…All is going well over at my Kickstarter project (still almost two weeks to get your Pinky pin!) We have enough in the banky pig to have the pins made, as well as have them put on groovy cards (mebbee with another picture of Pinky on it!).

But meanwhile…back at the Panda House…

Mebbee Bubba and Ping Ping can help…is this really happening?

Panda on (over to Kickstarter: Put a Panda on It)

By the by…you may remember that right before Christmas, I taught a class on making comics to a group of young persons. Apparently some of them had a good time, and their parents did not want to have me arrested and a group of them (a girl scout troop) want to do it again. I think I should show them the ‘toons about Pinky and the Meihems and the panda Scout Cookie sale!

Wish me luck!

You may be headed for…

Twidder Jail!

If you answer yes to any of these questions, YOU may already be in Twidder Jail!
Have you told the “president” or one of his minions, exactly what you think of him directly?
Have you accused a mansplainer of mansplaining and told him where he could take his mansplaining?
Have you confronted a bully on Twidder, who is actually a big whiney baby who, after calling YOU a snowflake, reports YOU for giving them a piece of your mind?

You are not alone.

Who would ever imagine Pinky would do something to offend someone? #ClapLouder

Meanwhile, we are doing great over at our Kickstarter campaign to make enameled pins of all of your favorite Panda Chronicles Characters! (Yes, you, too, Bebe Maurice!!!) If you haven’t checked it out yet, there is still time over here! Be the bear! and #ClapLouder!

Panda On!

The Traditions of the Senate

Huzzah for the wave of blue that has swept over the House. (If you are not happy about this, you might want to stop reading right here, or maybe even back up to the beginning of the sentence!) We may not be able to counter the so-called Senate traditions about who can or when they can nominate, say, a judge, for instance, while the sad turtle is in charge, we can slow down a few abuses of power, perhaps.

It’s looking like a blue tsunami to me!

Sad Turtle, Too Much McConnell has much to answer for.

Just a couple more days until 31 Days of Pandas! Are you ready? I’m getting there!

Panda On!
Be the Bear!

PS: Cheating is not winning.

Bears will be Bears!

It’s our final installment with our special guest bears, Frank and Mikey, as they talk about the alleged events that may or may not have taken place on the steps of the Supreme Court! We aren’t admitting to anything!!!!

I SAID, I like BEER, Not BEARS!!!!

I like bears.

Here comes da judge!

Be the Bear!

Welcome to the Bears!

Being the bear can be so much fun. Especially when you are a grizzly bear! Let’s join our special guests, Mikey and Frank, who thought they had been specially invited to the Supreme court swearing in ceremony!

WE thought he said….

Helloooooo bears!

Be the Bear

A Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate! Despite the current political turn of events, there is still much to be thankful for. let’s see if we can find more things to be thankful for.

AS a Birthday Season Present to Myself…

…I present a cartoonist’s revenge. When you know that the powers that be have gotten away with a terrible miscarriage of justice, and that people who have suffered at the hands of said person have gotten no relief, and that more injustice will follow, there is really only one thing you can do.

Draw a cartoon that depicts said person being eaten by bears. Silly, cuddly bears, but BEARS!!!!

Send in the bears!

Hey! I know! Let’s pack the Supreme Court!

What a great idea (no, not really) #45 has, to add a Supreme Court Justice that does not believe a president should be prosecuted while in office. At the time I am writing this, (some weeks in advance), I have no idea what is going to happen with the Kavanaugh nomination, but it is pretty distressing to see the way the R’s are trying to get him confirmed before all the information has been studied. I mean, been made available!

Of course, you should have voted for Pinky!

Wait…did he say “shoot” or “poot”???

The Meihems Will Not Take This Lying Down

“No good can come of allowing other pandas to have opinions”

~Princess Pinky in her recent book: World Domination the Princess Pinky Way

Pinky might be of the opinion that the Meihems have a unfair advantage, what with being twins and more than a month older than Pinky. She could possibly have a point, because from the beginning, they have given as good as they’ve gotten, at least when it comes to Pinky’s shenanigans.

So is it any surprise that they have a response to Pinky’s most recent accusations?

I didn’t think so either!

Pinky: “if i want you to have an opinion, i’ll give it to you!”

A hearty welcome back to pandas fans who once were lost, but now have found their way back to the panda kindergarten, along with new readers who have found us for the first time!

Stay tuned for the premiere episode of our latest retold (panda) tales extravaganza starting this Wednesday, coming to an internet cafe near you! It’s a little story we are calling, Pinky in Wonderland! There will probably be a few breaks during the story as we catch up with our reading in the Lewis Carroll original! It’s been a while since I last read it so… also some other pandas were anxious to share their stories, including Zhen Zhen’s big adventure tale (based on a true story!) and the reveal of Bebe Maurice’s new outfit and chosen interest!

Stay right in your seat! You don’t want to miss a single frame!
