We’re Back with Episode 17 of Pandarella!

Because we absolutely need some fairy tales right now!

We’ll rant more about current events in our Thursday episode. Meanwhile, let’s see what Bikkie’s fairy god-pandas have been up to…

Six and Sebben will NEBBER recognize Bikkie in his red panda disguise!

If it’s Tuesday, it Must Be Time For Another Episode of Pandarella!

Okay! NOW this story is cooking with gas. Or poofing with gas. Or mebbee Sister Mary Fluffy has gas…

On with our story!

Among the characters of the Panda Chronicles, there are several that have active lives off of the page, although they are no less…um…imaginary. Babette de Panda, our erstwhile villain in many stories, started her existence as the small, stuffy panda friend of my friend Victory. Victory found her on a trip, bought her as a present for me, but by the time they got home, she had named Babette and they bonded.

Babette had a Facebook page for a while, and many stories which never made it into the Panda Chronicles. Eventually, she found her way into the stories, and eventually came to live with me. She has continued to have adventures off the page. I would tell you, except there has been a gag order regarding some of her exploits.

Sister Mary Fluffy started her existence as one of my handmade felty pandas. It must have been divine inspiration that brought her into being. She has made multiple appearances in Pinky Panda’s Bamboo Chef events on Twitter.

I hope this answers any questions about her. She has a mysterious past (not unlike Babette).

Pandarella Episode 13

The Baker’s Dozenth Episode. (ask your GrandMei)

Okay! NOW things are going to start going Bikkie’s way! (We think). I mean…when Sister Mary Fluffy is you designated Fairy Godmother, what could possibly go wrong?

Pandarella 12: Our Story Continues in a Slightly Less Scary Way

I told you things were going to start turning around soon! You wouldn’t want me to just skip to the easy parts, would you?

Now the POOF is about to hit the fan! Never underestimate the power of Art. (Or the power of a magical wand!)

Pandarella Episode 11

The story continues and you probably won’t like this one either.

But don’t worry, Bikkie’s fortunes are going to change really soon! I mean…Mittens got 34 guilty verdicts in NYC! That means anything is possible.*

*Except for the discovery of more than 1 contiguous brain cell in Marge’s head.

Should be an exciting next couple of weeks, on the page and off! Hang in there everyone!

Pandarella Episode 10

Out in the real world, a bear in a town in California has developed a taste for Oreo cookies. Rumor has it he is going to be interviewed by ZooNooZ later this week! Won’t that be fun?

If you enjoy reading about my fine art life, I’m writing a series about my upcoming show over on Substack. You can find it here. I’m planning on writing about one of my paintings for my upcoming show at Rob Schouten Gallery later in the summer.

Meanwhile, Pinky is hoping that you will support her candidacy by wearing Pinky merch! Redbubble often has sales, so keep your eye on the webpage. For now, stickers ship for free to US addresses. Here is the image for Pinky’s 2024 Cubpaign!

Our Story Continues: Pandarella, Episode 9

Here we are again. You know the drill: Fairy tale, wicked stepmother, evil step sisters, bad stuff happens, yada yada yada.

I sure hope Bikkie made good soup. You don’t want to get those evil step sisters mad.

Episode 8 of Pandarella! Things go from bad to WORSE!

We are back with the next episode of Pandarella! and yes, things are not going well for Bikkie. And yes, things are about to get worse.

Deal with it.

Would I be wrong to think that Six and Sebben are enjoying their roles as mini villains?

Coming up on Thursday (or maybe Friday, we’ll have to see, won’t we?) a hard hitting NooZ story about the Woodland Park Pookies (as heard on NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me!)
