News Flash: Panda Climbs a Tree

Ha ha! that was a gratuitous headline if there ever was one. Of course a panda climbs a tree! Bubba has been climbing up a storm, ever since they let him explore the great outdoors. So, this cartoon is kind of old news, but it wasn’t when I drew it. Mommee Mei is now confident enough in his abilities that she can take a nap or chow down some boo while he is wowing the crowds with his feats of daring.

But when Bubba first started exploring the dreaded hemlock and the gingko of terror, Mei thought he might need just a little help to get started.

Moms…gotta love ’em.

Meanwhile, we have been having weather not very conducive to pandas, with horizontal buckets of rain today. Blergg. The good news is that it is perfect weather to work on my latest project, which will be available sometime this millennium. I don’t mean to be snarky, but it turns out a graphic novel is a whole heck of a lot of work. Sometime next month I will start sharing some sketches in progress, but for now, can I just say it is either going to be awesomely cool, or a complete pile of crap.

Sigh…We creative types are subject to mood swings and insecurity, if you haven’t figured this out yet. But never fear, Pandas are on the move, and we will bring you all the pandas that fit!

Be the Bear,
Bob T Panda

      When I watched the video again, I had to laugh as I saw how accurately I portrayed this. He really acted like he didn’t want help, and she was determined to help him. Good times!

      You’re so welcome. Tough times calls for pandas and excessive amounts of adorableness. We will get through this. Be the bear!

    Just what I needed after a few realllllllly horrrrrible days! Thank you! Your comment above could not be any more appropriate. And I vote panda awesomeness for the graphic novel. I can’t wait to hear how it is going as you proceed. . . and to someday soon own it for my very own self . . .

    That is if you can hear through a blog post – I am sure there is better word than that, but in my frazzled condition it will have to do.

    So looking forward to your new graphic novel project! And yes, you did portray the video in an excellent way! I was pretty much overwhelmed by how MX was helping little Bubba!!

      Thank you. Bubba asked me to point out that he is now a “big boy, and not need mommee’s help.” “Or pinky’s.”
