For years, I’ve been thinking I needed to write a Groundhog Day ‘toon, and wouldn’t you know, I don’t start thinking about it until…you guessed it, Groundhog Day. This is also the day that I traditionally procrastinate sending out holiday cards until, and then don’t do that either. So sue me. No, don’t! Just kidding!!!! People ask me how I find the time to be an incredibly gifted painter, write hilarious cartoons, and wrestle 5 acres of Northwest woods into submission. The answer is, I don’t do a lot of things that I probably should do, like clean the house and wash the dishes on some sort of regular basis.
To this I say, do you want to have new cartoons to read each week, or would you rather be able to eat off my bathroom floor without contracting a vile disease or swallow a hairball?
I thought so. You’re welcome.
And for all you brave souls who listened to HWMNBN’s SOTU address. Congratulations. You are far braver than I am. In truth, by this weekend, I will probably have watched it in tiny bits and pieces that I can endure without running out of the house screaming in terror. I am keeping informed, as best I can, but there are limits to my endurance. I call my Senators and Congressman regularly. I’m trying to bring light into the world through art and humor. And I’m going to watch as many panda videos as I can.
Viva les Pandas!
Buy my new book!

Keep the panda toons coming – we can’t see your house from here anyway. Also, a few pandas set loose on 5 acres of woodland keep things in check. I’ve heard they’re supposed to be excellent pruners.
My hand-painted lithograph of Bai Yang has arrived – beautiful! Thank you!!
So glad you liked your lithograph. I need to write a post about the process of making those, as the plates are hand drawn, hand printed (on my etching press) and then hand watercolored. I thought you might enjoy that one. #PandaArt
Anne, please do write a post about the process you follow for the lithographs. We’d all be very interested in that!
I will definitely do that. In the meantime, here is a page on my fine art website that shows some of my other print work.
Cartoons and fabulous paintings over a clean house – always.I remember those snow-suits and how hard it was to move in them. 🙂 From what I have heard about the Orange Menace’s speech is the it was mostly a Stephen Miller anti-immigration rant and a few sentences to mollify the least hard-line Republicans. Honestly his voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.
I agree on both counts! I don’t need to subject myself to his image or voice. There are plenty of places to stay informed.
Thinking the colour in her yard has been erased is one of Pinky’s sweetest moments. And she looks so ridiculously cute in her snow suit!
Hard to remember there was a time Pinky alternated between sweet and naive, and willful and intent on world domination.
