Girl Power Lives On

Just between you, me, and how ever many of the millions of people out there in the cyber are listening, I gotta tell you I am still severely depressed over the election results. I am going to do my best to panda on, because the alternative is just too grim to think about. I have responsibilities to you all! The pandas give me what little hope I have for the future. If I ever needed some panda power, now is as good a time as any. And panda girl power is even better.

Last weekend, I spent 3 days with a group of illustrators and writers of books for children. It did more than I could have believed possible to lift my spirits. We did some good work under the guidance of our wonderful illustrators in residence, Catia Chien and Christian Robinson. It reminded me that the way I will survive the next months and years will be to make creative work, be it painting, illustrations or pandas! 

So, it’s gonna be a bumpy road. I know many of you are hurting as well. I will keep the pandas coming,although  they just might not be as funny as they have been. I’ll try to keep the selections for my Friday encore presentations on the light side, because…well, because we need that.

Panda On!

      You’re welcome. I am doing it as much for me, as for you all. Pandas are a proven defense against utter despair. I find that even holding a small stuffed panda (Mini Bob, for instance) up to my cheek for a few seconds helps.
      Panda on!

    Girl Power will always live on! I’m loving the oestrogen imbalance in Cublanta!! Can’t wait to see what the new twins will be wearing once they grow into their personalities 🙂

    Loved the pout/frown face that Bert had on! But of course that changed real fast when “Wu” was mentioned 🙂
    Thanks for always putting a smile on our faces with pandas.

      I will do my best to keep the pandas coming. After all, their origins on my drawing table came from a place of hopelessness and despair. That was completely personal. Now I fear for the whole world.
      Panda on!
