I had so hoped that once President Biden (No Quotation Marks Needed!) took office, I could stop hearing or thinking about politics, but no…alas, the hypocritical hits just keep on coming!
Meanwhile, the former guy is doing stand-up of his greatest hits, (“the election was stolen”, “I’ll be coming back into power” “The Democrats are destroying democracy”) at any wedding held at his club where they don’t have the sense to lock the doors after all the guests have arrived. There is probably a ‘toon there, although I’m not sure I have the stomach to stand drawing him again.
It feels like spring today (despite the fact that I just woke up from a nap!) and now as the days get longer, I can still go outside!
So here is a little random collection, of ‘toons through the years that I have done in the spring. Do I have a theme? Um…not really! I’m just going to rummage through the ‘toons and see what amuses me today. I hope it amuses you too!
It must almost be time to select the Torch Bears for the next Olympic Games!!!
My recent operating system upgrade and new printer brought along another round of technical difficulties!
Still finding work arounds for all my technical difficulties. I just updated my operating system and now my scanner doesn’t want to work. Uh oh. I am getting the “offline” notice again, which is always encouraging. (not)
Anyway, fortunately I have this week and next week’s ‘toons scanned so I have a bit of time to figure this out!
Here’s today’s ‘toon!
Meanwhile, I am reading about Minch McTurtle’s feud with corporations. I guess it’s okay to take money from them, as long as they don’t contradict you? IDK.
Till later, Call the Panda Kindergarten tech team!
Some comics let their characters age, grow, get old disappear, add new characters as the older characters end their story lines. Some comics keep their characters in a state of suspended animation. Calvin remained six for all 10 years of Calvin and Hobbes. I’ve done a bit of the combination of the two, freezing characters at the age that is most conducive to the story lines that I have created.
Pandas come, and sometimes they go (Yun Zi, who really only appeared as a foil to young Mr. Wu, left for China as part of a story line) but mostly, I’ve left Princess Pinky, Bubba, the Meihems, and Six and Sebben as perennial pre-teens because that’s where my mind finds the most fertile story telling. And of course now there is Bikkie!
But now that the real life Pinky Boo Boo has had a cubby, it is very enticing to imagine that Pinky will now be on the receiving end of everything she has put her mother through. But I’m not ready to give up on Pinky as a small panda princess, intent on world domination. Therefore, I’m working on one of those dream sequence story lines, where for now, Pinky and Pinky Junior will exist only in Pinky’s dreams, at least for now!
So, let’s remember everything we love about Pinky! #Clap Louder!
Whatever holiday you celebrate, I hope it was a happy one!
It’s been a long year, hasn’t it? Isolated in our pandemic quarantine quarters, zooming with friends or for work or for school. Only now, as vaccines are happening, are (some) people coming cautiously out of their dens…
Except of course for the morons who just can’t stay out of crowded bars and other places, and have been spreading viruses around like penny candy at a parade…
Meanwhile, some enterprising farms have a solution for that profound feeling of isolation we are all feeling…
Okay…so I’m starting to get used to this new editing format, but I don’t like it yet.
