Time to run around and jump up and down!!!!

This is it! The last day of Mr. Wu’s Pin Project! You still have a few hours to head over to Kickstarter to pledge on our latest project! Huzzah! To inspire you to support our latest project, I thought I’d publish and additional day of ‘toons, celebrating…you guessed it…

Pandas for Kickstarter!

Pandas explain Kickstarter!

Send money or the cat gets it!!!

Get ready…….

Says Babette de Panda: “It’s all about MOI` “

Nobody expects the panda kindergarten!

Look out, Mr. Kitty!

More pandy explanations

And because it is almost the 50th anniversary of the moon landing…

One step for a small bear….

Houston, we have a problem…nobody expects the panda kindergarten!!!

Be the bear!

Did you forget to pledge?

One more day!

Not only is today the next to last day of my Put a Panda on it 3.0 Kickstarter project, it is also, the 6th birthday of the Meihems! Huzzah! Let there be cake!

Let’s celebrate with some ‘toons featuring the Meihems! (*For a while we thought they were boy pandas, until Pinky poofed them)

The first appearance of the twinkies on The Panda Chronicles

Atlanta twin panda cubs Mei Lun and Mei Huan and older prother Po

Huzzah! a guest appearance by little Po!

Atlanta Twins have a fight

Sweet dreams, little bears!

Time to call in …Inspector panda!

Last week was Bill Watterson’s birthday! This is my homage to him:

I love a good art forgery, don’t you?

There must be cake!

Just another reminder! If you haven’t already visited our Put a Panda on it 3.0 (Mr. Wu edition!!!) it’s not too late!

Pandas have to fill out census forms too…

All the kerfuffle over the census form (“WHY WON’T THE SUPREME COURT LET ME DO WHAT I WANT? THAT’S WHAT I PICKED THEM FOR!!!!”) reminded me of this ‘toon from the last Panda Census:

Do we have to count panda adoption fees?

Pinky’s attempt to recruit Six and Sebben as her new minions reminded me of her previous collusion with small pandas….you could ALMOST have sympathy for the difficulty the WH has to find staff that doesn’t crime….

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!

Triple Trouble indeed!

What are Pinky and her minions getting up to?

Minion security: you can’t be too careful.

Maybe you shouldn’t plug that many things into an extension cord, Pinky.

did someone turn out the lights?

And Zoonooz is on the job!

Pinky is so good at “Evade the Question”, that she is obviously a natural politician!

Cause and effects are very complicated concepts for baby pandas, don’t you think?

Panda on!

Don’t forget! We have 3 more days on our Kickstarter campaign!

 

The Tour de Pandas Has Begun!

The Tour de France began yesterday, and, wouldn’t you know it, the panda kindergarten is up to their old tricks! Don’t do what they did to get pictures of the race!

Who says real life can’t be funny?

If you love cute pictures of cats (and who doesn’t???) be sure to check out the very funny #TourDeCouch over on Twidder, from the account of @CatFoodBreath

The panda kindergarten have bad records when it comes to taking selfies in other situations too…

Much better to take a selfie with pandas!

AAAAAAhhhHHHHHH!

Will Pinky try to repeat this stunt for her 2020 run?

I really had no idea what she was up to.

Mei should not be getting all excited like this in her condition!

Thanks to the unidentified reader who suggested what the jaguar might have done with said selfie seeker’s phone!

I’d love to see some selfies with your Panda Chronicles patches and pins! Maybe that would inspire people to sign up for their Mr. Wu pin and patch over at Kickstarter! We have just over a week left to go!

Panda On!

The end of something wonderful…

Did I scare you? I didn’t mean it was the end of The Panda Chronicles or anything like that. I meant that it is the end of boo shoot season, the favorite season of pandas everywhere. I read that Zoo Atlanta had announced the end of the season, when the wonderful fresh bamboo shoots were no longer available.

I imagined myself to be a fly on the wall of Six and Sebben’s hammock room…

Let’s listen in, shall we?

Will these two ever get along?

Be the bear!

It’s Sunday Funday Again! Nobody Expects the Panda Kindergarten!

I’m all ready to send more panda goodness out into the world on Tuesday! The lists have been checked (multiple times) forms for overseas packages filled out, packages labeled and sealed! Summer feels like it is already here, in the great Northwest, which makes me want to go outside!

The panda kindergarten is getting ready for summer vacation and the pandas who are graduating from the Putting Pandas to Work program are prepared to take their new positions!

Let’s take the wayback machine to see what the panda kindergarten has gotten up to over the years….

This is going to have to be a patch at some point!

The panda kindergarten at their best…or is that worst?

The panda kindergaten knows where you live.

Nothing like a bit of the great outdoors to straighten up the panda kindergarten.

Will the panda kindergarten get it put together before Bai Yun gets home?

The cake abides….

Bears Behaving Badly

Well, that headline could include just about anything with the panda kindergarten, or true stories with bears. (Not to mention Princess Pinky!!! Need I say more?) Several of my very alert readers, Sarajane E. and Barbara B. sent me a link to this story about an entire family of bears behaving badly! Hmmm…I wonder if Frank and Mikey were the bears involved? Stay tuned! I’m sure that is soon to be a story that ZooNooZ will be covering!

Let’s take a look in the way back machine at what naughty pandas have been up to!

You can’t be too careful!

Ha ha! Here’s a toothbrush!

Wheel…of…PANDAS!!!!!

Speaking of being mauled by bears…

“I felt so violated!”

Do we have to count panda adoption fees?

Huzzah! More Wheel…of…PANDAS!!!

The Scottish pandas

Save some pie for me!

The panda kindergaten knows where you live.

See? It’s not JUST Pinky who behaves badly!!!!

Be the (bad) Bear!

One last post from The Animal Justice League

Somehow I got out of sync with my ‘toons, and left the tail end of this story (that was a pun, get it? Tail end?) hanging while we wrapped up the second Panda Pin project! We’ll be doing a third one this summer, to celebrate that cubby among cubbies, the one true Wu Self!

But first, I have a bunch of organizing to do, along with the making of lists, the ordering of pins, and the gathering of information. If you missed the Bubba and Ping Ping Pin projects, hold on to your cuppycakes. after I get all the Kickstarter pins sent out, I can field requests from here or you can wait till the next project to catch up, sometime around late June.

Thanks again to all who participated!

Meanwhile, don’t turn your back on those lions!

If you go out in the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise!

Be the Bear!

Missing Wu…

Mr. Wu was the first baby panda I watched from birth. The following year I watched as the Meihems, and then Pinky were born, but Wu will always be the cubby of my heart. I hope that I get to visit him in China, but sometimes it is hard to track specific pandas. You think they are going to be one place, and then you go, and they have been moved, sometimes the day before.

I know I’ll recover. There are more panda cubbies to watch and love, but they won’t be the Wu Self.

where happy pandas eat bamboo, oh why, oh why, can’t…Wu?

Please refer any questions to Mr Wu’s legal team.

Are you now, or have you ever been a panda?

Uh oh. All is not well in Pandyland!

Don’t believe EVERYTHING the panda kindergarten says!

Meanwhile, we wrapped up our successful Bubba and Ping Pin project over on Kickstarter last week! They just celebrated their 10th anniversary last week as well! Follow the link to see some of the amazing projects the’ve done over the years. I’m proud of all the projects I’ve done there, since my first one in 2012. While they have all been modest projects, relatively speaking, they have been significant to me, in the support I received and what I was able to do with it.

Thanks to all of you who supported me, I was able to:
* Travel to Italy for an egg tempera workshop in 2012
* Publish the very first collection of the Panda Chronicle ‘toons in 2012
* Publish Pandamorphosis in 2014
* Travel to China to see pandas (including actual Pinky) and create a series of artworks on my return in 2017
* Create the first of the Pin series (Starring Pinky!!!!!) in 2019
* Create the second Pin project with Bubba and Ping Ping;  in 2019

Thank you all for being the bears!

Farewell Mr. Wu!

It’s a sad day for US panda fans, as this weekend was the last time that the beloved Mr. Wu (the cute Wu Self!!!!) and his mom Bai Yun, would be on view at the San Diego Zoo, home to pandas for 25 years. Bai Yun has lived most of her life here, and brought 6 more healthy cubbies into the world, some of whom have gone on to be parents and grandparents.

I know that they will be loved and well cared for in China, but I still hate to see them go. Thanks for the memories, Mr. Wu. You will always be the first cubby of my heart.

And now, for the final installments of Bears Under the Big Top!

episode 13

episode 14

episode 15

…and it all ends with Mr Wu’s Birthday party! Huzzah!

See? I TOLD you I wouldn’t let anything happen to Mr. Wu!

How about another Wu-toon for the road?

birthday week

It’s so hard to be cool when you still live with your mom.

Be the Bear!

PS: Don’t forget! Our Kickstarter is still gong on! I’ve recently added a new reward, and rewritten the project home page to make it (hopefully) less confusing. Seriously, every time I do this, in some ways it’s like the first time! :-}
