#WhereIsBikkie?

There is no story so big or so small that is not covered by ZooNooZ on the Panda Channel

Pinky, of course, always get right to the heart of the matter #ClapLouder #WhatDoYouMeanFormer

And get ready! It is almost the true Wu Self’s birthday season and he is about to turn 10!!!!

It’s Panda Birthday Season!

It’s panda birthday season for all pandas, but especially for the US born pandas!

And to start out the season, Happy 9th Birthday to the Meihems!!!

Born on July 15th of 2013, more than a month before Pinky, and don’t think they ever let her forget it! Here are some of my favorite ‘toons featuring Bert and Ernie (and probably Pinky, just because!) Can you believe the Meihems and Pinky are about to turn 9?!?!?!?!

This was before we knew that the Meihems and Po were girls!

And then this happened…

Pinky is VERY powerful. Be afraid, be very afraid, Mr Wu.

Ready for panda kindergarten!
I love a good art forgery, don’t you?
There must be cake!

Happy Birthday, Meihems! And a reminder, the book about the real life Meihems written by Beth Bacon and illustrated by yours truly is available for pre-order through Amazon and maybe even your local book store! (Not sure about distribution yet). Order your copy of The Panda Cub Swap today!

Slated for a September release date!

…In Which Discoveries Have Been Made and Conclusions Reached

How much trouble do YOU think Frank and Mikey will be in?

Hi Hi Hi Hi!!!!

Be the Bear!

Side note: how about those hearings, huh? Are you watching? The cat trap is closing in on Mittens!

Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Bear Gone?

Everyone has pretty much guessed where Bikkie is…

Well, everyone except for Frank and Mikey, that is…

I guess we’ll see what happens next when it happens. I don’t think Frank’s mePhone works from the ferry, so….

I hope everyone is watching the Jan6 Hearings today!

Before there was Bitcoin, there was Pinky Money

Really, if you want to know the future, read The Panda Chronicles. Everything happens here first.

Proof positive of Pinky’s persuasive popularity!
Butter wouldn’t melt in her adorable little mouth….
Minion security: you can’t be too careful.
Thanks a lot, Leslie. I think you gave Pinky this idea.

Will Pinky’s minions testify at the next January 6th hearing? Tune in on Tuesday and find out. (We also might find out where Bikkie has disappeared to!)

Notes from a Small Island

It’s the 3rd of July here on Whidbey Island. I’m happy to say, that it has been raining all day and the temperature has not topped 60. What’s that you say? Shouldn’t I wish for warm summer weather?

Well, as last year, most of June was in the 80’s, with some temps above 90, even out here on the island (Seattle went above 100 several times, even before July arrived) AND as Island County has not seen fit to put provisions in place banning fireworks when fire danger is high, last year at this time I was completely stressed out in fear that some moron would burn down my neighborhood and me along with it.

So, this year, as we have had a very cool start to summer, I was happy when I woke up to rain, which has continued through the day.

Huzzah!

The show of my (serious non-panda) paintings opened last night, with a well attended reception and a few sales. If you’d like to see it (and you don’t live within range of Langley) your can see it here. I got a very nice comment form an artist friend who had come into see the show. I hope she won’t mind me sharing it here: ” …the light feels brave, like something fighting the darkness that is trying to overtake us…

That is exactly what I have been feeling these past 8 months as I worked on these paintings. That I am desperately clinging to some shard of optimism in the face of the evil that still is trying to take us down.

There are glimpses of hope: people speaking up for the January 6 committee that we might not expect, testifying to events we feared and now are confirmed. While it is true that we haven’t gotten everything we want from those we have elected, I can pretty much guarantee that we won’t like ANYTHING the republicans inflict on us should they regain power.

Here is one of my paintings from the show:

Bush Point Duet

And here are a few panda-‘toons commemorating the holiday:

*snorf*

I would point out that this ‘toon was drawn in 2019, and take no credit (or responsibility) for giving the idea to attack the Capitol to Mittens and his band of thugs.

Made by the same highly scientific company as the Cute-o-Meter!

Panda on, no matter what!

Time for the Annual Pilgrimage to the Salmon Streams of Alaska!

Oh sure, Mittens didn’t mind that attendees to his insurrection had all sorts of weapons, but what’s really important is the Bear Cams!

Who doesn’t love fish? Oh…right.

Buckle up people.

Who could ever foreseen this revelation at the January 6th hearing today?*

*Everyone

When I wrote this ‘toon last week, I had no idea that today’s hearing was coming.

Go figure.
