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!

Fasten your seat belts! There may be turbulence!

I hope Bubba doesn’t decide to invest in Pinky’s new airline endeavor.

Protect the Banky Pig!!!!

So…where did you leave Banky Pig?

Be da bear!

When you are looking for a good panda tourism option…

..better try Pand-air! The airline for all your panda tourism needs!

Pinky ALWAYS has a plan!

Pand-Air is the only airline you’ll ebber need!

Panda on!

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!

Hope is the antidote to despair…

I’m feeling a little short on hope, to be honest. It feels like the world is spinning out of control and that the proliferation of evil is increasing exponentially, and those that bring hope and joy and help and comfort into the world have to run triple time with no hope of catching up. There are so many holes in the dam and we just don’t have enough fingers. My heart goes out to the people of New Zealand who have received our unwanted evil export of hate and violence.

Our pathetic excuse of a president says white extremist violence isn’t a thing, and the clueless Howard Schultz thinks that all the people booing and criticizing him means that the people really want him and are excited. Wrong on both counts, you clueless numpties.

But we have to keep hoping, until there is no hope left. Don’t we?

It was #NationalPandaDay yesterday…let’s have some pandas.

Atlanta twin panda cubs Mei Lun and Mei Huan and older prother Po

Huzzah! a guest appearance by little Po! (This was before we knew the Meihems and Po were girls)

In the words of Winnie ther Pooh, “I think it’s time for a little something.

How many times do we have to remind you….

Nothing gets my spirits up more than baby Pinky!

Never say “No” to a Pinky!

Bao Bao is unhappy

Could Mama Mei Xiang really be contemplating letting Pinky loose on the pandy kindy?

Pinky answers difficult questions from the press in her own way.

How do you spell “emergency collusion”?

What cunning plan has Pinky devised? Will they be able to sneak out of the house? Will Mommee Mei find out? Will Bubba be grounded? Has Bubba learned anything from Pinky? And what about Ping Ping?

Let’s find out!

I see trouble in my crystal ball…

Panda On!

Pinkstarter update: Pin design has been finalized, submitted and approved and the order is in. A team of pandas is standing by to make our pins! Stay tuned!

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 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!
