Boo Boo’s Bearday is Coming Soon…

Breaking Nooz! Hao Hao of Pairi Daiza in Belgium has given birth to twins. So far, all is going well. They look very round (yay!) and the twin switching seems to be going well! Congratulations to Hao Hao and her entire team and family!

…Now, it seems like there is another Panda Bearday coming up right around then, but I just can’t remember who it is….Heh!

What’s that? I can’t hear you!

Don’t tell me you’re surprised.

Oh yeah…Pinky has a birthday too! I guess we’ll have to feature them both!

And it was ever thus….

One for Pinky, and one for Bubba….

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

Oh dear….are you going to leave her there?

Feed me, Mama!

Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.

Bubba: i don’ fink it is fair. almost all my ‘toons has pinky in dem!
Pinky: Suck it up, boo boo!
Bubba: don’ call mee boo boo!

What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!

Bubba was really hitting  the frosting in this next ‘toon, but it shows the essential difference between Pinky and Bubba!

You better watch out….

Due to the excessive cruelty of the news this week, I think we deserve a couple more, don’t you?

And then there was the day he had to figure out what to wear for his debut…

I’m ready for my close up!

I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.

See? I told you it was broken!

I could not resist including the cute-o-meter! I hope this week is better than last week, but I really don’t have much hope of that. Hope this week’s offerings help!

Panda On!

It’s all over but the shipping.

Well, and the ordering too. Thanks so much to everyone who supported my latest project, and thanks to all of you who read my ‘toons every week. It’s always a delicate balance in asking people to support what I do when I take to the crowd-funding arena. You should know, that if you are reading my work, you are helping to support my work, even if you’re not in a place where you can support it financially.

The first time I created a Kickstarter project, I was so nervous that no one would think giving me money to go to Italy was a good idea But people did, and I learned much about how to ask for, and how to accept your help with grace and gratitude. I know that not everyone is in a position to buy things that don’t have a purpose, other than to remember fun, and to bring a smile to your face when you look at it.

I hope reading these ‘toons bring you joy and resolve, see what humor exists even in trying times, and helps you get through these “interesting” times we find ourselves in. Plus, making fun of mean people is kind of…um…enjoyable.

So let’s have some pandas, ‘kay?

Om, Om on the range….

Be da Bear

What’s a Sunday for, if not for Pandas?

I just received an email yesterday, with pictures of the Bubba and Ping pins, which have just landed at Pin Game Strong. I’ll have them in my hot liddle paws by the end of next week, and then packaged and off to YOU, the following week! Read on to see the pictures they sent me of the pins!

But meanwhile, since this is Bubba’s turn at fame (settle down, Pinky!) …(oh and don’t forget Ping!) It only seems fair that we feature some of Bubba’s ‘toons from the archive this week!

Get your bowl of frosting, sit back, and enjoy the show. We’ll head back to the fight for Democracy tomorrow!

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

Feed me, Mama!

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!

Maybe Bubba is having a Halloween SEASON! Did you ever think of THAT, Pinky?

Aw, Pinky…Bubba loves you!

And because you’ve been so supportive (not to mention patient…)

The Bubba and his friends patch!

yes! This is the actual pin!

Don’t forget Ping Ping!…Ping!

 

Panda on!

PS: Did you miss our Kickstarter? Do you mebbee want some pins and patches? Stay tuned! There will be opportunities to catch up in the next round of pins later this month!

One more day to go!!!!!

A big thanks to all of the fans and friends of Bubba (and Ping Ping!!!!) who have signed up to and contributed to the latest Pin Project! We are truly in the home stretch now, with the project closing down tomorrow at Noon PDT! I’m very excited about the pin and patch designs and can hardly wait to see them and hold them in my paws!

Pandas are standing by to fulfill your every wish!

I thought mommee hid Pinky’s magical wand!

Head on over to Kickstarter now, and get your Bubba (and Ping Ping!!!) pin today!

Be the Bear!

Huzzah Huzzah! Bubba is on the move!

Allow me to pontificate a little schmoopilly here…

While there is a lot of work and planning in putting together a crowd funding campaign, there is also a LOT of fun involved too. I love designing little things from my drawings, but what I love most is interacting with you all!

When I see names that I know from Fezbook and Twidder, and even from real life, I get a little thrill. It’s almost like we are having a conversation: Hey! I like what you’re doing here! I wanna make sure you can keep doing it!…Chatting back and forth in the messages makes me feel a little less isolated in my studio. And to all the new people, whose names I don’t recognize, thank you for climbing aboard the panda bus!

Bubba’s pin! Funded in just over 3 hours!

So very Bubba, right?

And since we funded so quickly, I thought we should up the ante with a little stretch goal…visit us at Kickstarter today and climb aboard!

It’s not a party if you didn’t bring cuppycakes!

Because without Ping Ping, Bubba would only have his big zizzy Pinky to play with!

By the way, there were still a few Pinky pins available as of Tuesday afternoon!

Meanwhile, things are heating up in the other Washington…

Panda on!

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!

Today is the Day!

That’s right! Today is the day my Kickstarter project starts!

And we are LIVE!!!!! Click HERE for the link!

But first, the next episode of The Year of the Banky Pig!!!!

That Ping Ping is a clever liddle bear, isn’t he?

Now…get ready…get set… GOGOGOGOGOGO GO!

And BTW, a date with George Clooney is NOT a reward!

Don’t believe EVERYTHING the panda kindergarten says!

Panda on!

Put a Panda on it!

 

The Year of the Banky Pig: Episode 2

What WON’T Pinky try, to get possession of Bubba’s Banky Pig? He has been carefully saving his money so that he can go visit his friends Yip and Jip, now that they have moved to Calgary. But Bubba’s friend and sidekick Ping Ping has a plan, a cunning plan!

You can’t fool Bubba anymore, Pinky! At least not as much as you used to be able to!

Ping is definitely the clever one! What did he say to Bubba?

Meanwhile, we are just a couple days away from launching our Kickstarter campaign! Be ready on Thursday at Noon PST! Pinky awaits!

Be the Bear!

Time to get ready for…

The Year of the Banky Pig! Huzzah! Yes, the Lunar New Year, known also as Chinese New Year is coming soon. How soon? I don’t know, Auntie Lucilla…how soon is it? And since in the Chinese Astrology, each year is signified by an animal, changed  on a twelve year cycle. This year is the Year of the Pig. (Bubba: dat’s BANKY PIG!!!!!!)

For some reason, there is no year of the Panda. 

To whom do we file a complaint about this obvious error?

Look out Bubba! Pinky is trying to get her paws on Banky Pig!

Panda On!
