To the Frontier and Beyond!

Frank and Mikey are off on a new adventure!

Maybe Mikey lost his phone. Did you ever think of that?

It feels like summer in a lot of places in the northern hemisphere, but the actual start of summer is still a couple weeks away! Frank and Mikey have arrived in Alaska, but their trip is not going quite as they imagined! We’ll check back in with them later to see if they have found the rest of the family!

Till then…

Frank and Mikey Have Something to Say…

The Panda House is big, but with a couple of grizzly bears around, it’s starting to get a little…um…close. Sometimes a bear just needs to feel the wind in their fur, stand in a rushing 37 degree stream, and go for the gusto…

Know what I mean?

A bear’s gotta do what a bear’s gotta do! I’m sure they’ll be back…sooner or later!

I’m sure Mei hates to see the boys go, but I’m sure they’ll be back after they have their fill of fishing in a cold Alaskan stream! I hope they can get along with their brother and sister, Scooter and Josie! After that “incident” last year…

If You Go Out in the Woods Today…

Yes, it’s everyone’s favorite grizzly bears, Frank and Mikey, with some timely advice about keeping a safe social distance even when you are out getting some fresh air! For those of us who have a little more outdoor space of our own, getting outside is much easier than those who live in more urban environments. I know a lot of people who live nearby to the Smithsonian National Zoo in DC (aka the Pinksonian) who use that as a place to get their daily outdoor exercise. But now that it is closed to the public, those folks will have to venture farther afield to get some fresh air.

Fortunately, Frank and Mikey have some EXCELLENT advice for hikers!

You can always count on Frank and Mikey for the best advice about bears!

A reminder: Picnic Time for Grizzly Bears is an excellent song to sing to time your hand washing!

Picnic time for grizzly bears,
The little grizzly bears are having a wonderful time today,
Catch those hikers unawares
As they have their hiking holiday!
Check their packs for cuppycakes,
if we have cuppycakes you’ll never have any cares!
We’ll lick the frosting off our paws as we go home to bed
Because we’re tired little grizzly bears!

Panda on!

Picnic time for Grizzly Bears…

Just when you think that family can’t do anything worse…

But Frank and Mikey will straighten them out!

Paws off those bears! WE R endangered!

I keep meaning to write a little something about our current national nightmare, and how grateful I am that all of you are out there (somewhere) helping all of us get through this in the strange space we inhabit on the inter webs. We are light, we are energy, we are pandas.

Maybe tomorrow…

Stay safe everyone.

Panda On!

It’s Time For Your Favorite Show!

That’s right! Welcome to another episode of Bear Talk! Those lovable grizzly bears, Frank and Mikey are back! (you can’t keep a good bear down!)

But first, I want to congratulate the folks that work at Kickstarter for successfully organizing and forming a union. Kickstarter has been the home to various projects of mine sine 2012 when I launched my first project. Since then, it’s allowed me to focus my energy to do 8 projects to bring more panda fun to you! It is a company that was formed with the excellent mission and intent, to help creative project creators bring their projects to life. The people who work there should have the same agency and rights as the creators they help, to have their work valued and their voices heard.

Meanwhile, Frank and Mikey have some things to say about the NooZ of the day!

WEll, it COULD have been a hunt of Mittens Jr.!

Sock it to MEEEEE!

Ha ha! Who ever thought that socks with the Panda Chronicles all stars would be so flipping popular???? Certainly not me. I thought I’d have a nice, relaxed response, and that most of the orders would come in once the socks had arrived. Pinky’s socks sold out by the 2nd day, before I’d even had a chance to notify everyone, and as I write this, Bubba’s are all but gone too. There still are about 15 pairs for the Panda Kindergarten, which, quite frankly, are my favorites.

Update: Bubba’s last sock has been snapped up!

Needless to say, I will be heading back to the drawing board and designing some NEW socks, and…sigh…I guess Pinky will get another pair. I was kind of thinking about the baby Pinky Christmas design I did a while back….

Meanwhile, 31 Days of Pandas is almost upon us!

So, what I’m thinking is, that besides the regularly scheduled new ‘toon days (Tuesday and Thursday) and the Encore Presentation day (Sunday) on the other days, I will share some of my new design ideas for socks and stickers, as well as maybe some process sketches for a picture book I am working on, about Bee, the Bear.

Meanwhile, Frank and Mikey (your favorite grizzly bears!!!) are back once again…

It wasn’t us!!!!

Obviously, this is a tribute to one of the greatest radio shows ever, Car Talk! Every Saturday morning, I had a date with Tom and Ray, and ya know, if you kind of think about it, Frank and Mikey are a lot like them!

Panda On!
