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!
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…
…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?
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!
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!
…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!
