Well, and the ordering too. Thanks so much to everyone who supported my latest project, and thanks to all of you who read my ‘toons every week. It’s always a delicate balance in asking people to support what I do when I take to the crowd-funding arena. You should know, that if you are reading my work, you are helping to support my work, even if you’re not in a place where you can support it financially.
The first time I created a Kickstarter project, I was so nervous that no one would think giving me money to go to Italy was a good idea But people did, and I learned much about how to ask for, and how to accept your help with grace and gratitude. I know that not everyone is in a position to buy things that don’t have a purpose, other than to remember fun, and to bring a smile to your face when you look at it.
I hope reading these ‘toons bring you joy and resolve, see what humor exists even in trying times, and helps you get through these “interesting” times we find ourselves in. Plus, making fun of mean people is kind of…um…enjoyable.
That’s a quote from one of my favorite writers of all times, the late Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and many other books. And alas, I have missed a self imposed deadline. 🙁
I had hoped to be ready to launch the next series of pins and patches today, but one thing an another (I lost 2 weeks due to an unavoidable and unexpected trip) has kept me from this meeting this deadline. I’m trying very hard to get everything up and running for Thursday June 27th instead, so stay tuned! I’m close to ready, with a few more things to do, and get my project approved by the Kickstarter folks.
Read on after today’s ‘toon to get a sneak peek at the designs for the pin and patch designs!
And now…who are YOU calling a snowflake?
I’m not a snowflake. You are a snowflake!
Thanks to all who alerted me to this very important story about an albino panda caught on the panda cam in China, in the Quinling region! (You know it must be true if the Smifsonian reported it!)
And now, a little sneak peek at the next pins!
The Wu self! Final size will be about 1 1/4 inch wide
The Panda Kindergarten Keychain! Huzzah! Final size approx. 1 3/4 inches wide
Ahem…You Know Who just officially “launched” his reelection campaign, although how you can tell it from his business as usual, I just don’t know. Mr. Badger suggested that I not listen to the news any more, so that my blood pressure doesn’t shoot through the roof, and I don’t have nightmares about the concentration camps at the border.
But if I did that, I wouldn’t have heard this story to make fun of (because we DO need an extra dose of humor in our lives, especially at times like this!)
What’s that smell? Could it be…The smell of FREEDOM??
Back when I was freshly out of college, I had moved up to Western MA, and worked in a variety of restaurants, while trying to keep painting. The split shift I usually worked, didn’t leave a lot of time for painting on work days, so I fell into watching soap operas during my several off hours. The Young and the Restless was one show I remember.
But in Pinky’s case, it should be The Young and the Relentless!
Watch out, Bubba! Pinky is on the loose!
Bubba and Ping pins should be arriving soon! If you missed an opportunity, send me a message or comment!
I just received an email yesterday, with pictures of the Bubba and Ping pins, which have just landed at Pin Game Strong. I’ll have them in my hot liddle paws by the end of next week, and then packaged and off to YOU, the following week! Read on to see the pictures they sent me of the pins!
But meanwhile, since this is Bubba’s turn at fame (settle down, Pinky!) …(oh and don’t forget Ping!) It only seems fair that we feature some of Bubba’s ‘toons from the archive this week!
Get your bowl of frosting, sit back, and enjoy the show. We’ll head back to the fight for Democracy tomorrow!
He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!
Feed me, Mama!
Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!
What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!
I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.
See? I told you it was broken!
Maybe Bubba is having a Halloween SEASON! Did you ever think of THAT, Pinky?
Aw, Pinky…Bubba loves you!
And because you’ve been so supportive (not to mention patient…)
The Bubba and his friends patch!
yes! This is the actual pin!
Don’t forget Ping Ping!…Ping!

PS: Did you miss our Kickstarter? Do you mebbee want some pins and patches? Stay tuned! There will be opportunities to catch up in the next round of pins later this month!
With all the news in the news, it’s hard to feel like having fun, but that is what we must do if we are to survive the current madness of “King” Donald. Apparently, He just found out that 4th of July is a holiday, and he “came up with” a great idea for the day.
I hope he doesn’t make attendance mandatory.
Do we HAVE to go?
Meanwhile, out in California…
There’s no place like home…
Leaving the nest is never easy.
Is this a personality or what?
Don’t try this at home….
Don’t you just wish Fezbook would quit changing things?
Don’t Touch My Stuff! (this means you, Gail.)
Meanwhile, in Kickstarter land, I’ve ordered pins and patches and will get the backer surveys out next week! Huzzah! I bet Pinky will be so happy when Bubba and Ping arrive!
Stay safe and make sure you don’t have a humor deficit!
Uh oh. I knew when I saw her new tiara (Pinky 2020) that it was a sign of trouble. Big trouble. Mommee Mei might have hoped that Pinky had learned something from her experience 4 years ago, and she did, they were just not the things Mommee Mei wanted her to learn.
