The fogs of August are almost upon us, and while Congress goes on a six week vacation, (seriously?) the rest of us wish that we could do the same. But there is no escaping the relentless wave that is going to come upon us, and of course, by that, I mean…
Pinky’s cubpaign for President! Um…what did you think I meant?
I don’t think this crew of minions is going to be quite as devoted as her last ones.
Wasn’t it nice of Six and Sebben to come up with this brilliant cubpaign slogan? Those who signed on to Mr. Wu’s Kickstarter campaign will be getting one of these, but I’m guessing there will be a few extra. Stay tuned to learn how you can get one for your very own!
Pinky has new minions, but can she get them to stop fighting with one another and concentrate on the serious business of getting Pinky elected president next year? It’s gonna be a long cubpaign!
Pinky calls the meeting of her cubpaign staff to order…
Pinky and her new minions get down to serious business
Meanwhile the ordering process for the pins is now complete, and I’m hoping they will be in my hot liddle paws by the end of August. I’m making my lists and checking them twice…no make that 3 times. Stay tuned for more news of Pandas coming your way!
I got so excited checking in on the Mr. Wu: Put a Panda on It pin project yesterday, that I completely forgot to set up today’s post, which I usually set up to go out around 6 AM PDT. I hope I can be excused, just this once. We reached our funding goal, so the Mr. Wu pin and patch, as well as the panda kindergarten key chain will be a reality in the not too distant future!
Now, we just have to get a little farther in our funding goal to make Pinky’s 2020 bumperstickers a reality! You don’t want to disappoint Pinky do you?
But now, let’s have TODAY’S pandas, in an episode we call: Pinky gets new minions!
Pinky’s previous minions are all grown up now, and know better than to listen to her, but…
PS: if you’d like to support another panda artist’s work, there’s still time to support Nolan Lee’s book publication, The Panda is Still Fat, over on Indegogo! (Ironically, Nolan is a cute young, skinny guy who might be as obsessed with pandas as I am! )
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…
Oh my! I have survived power outages, the beginnings of the goobermint shutdown, and the destruction of the rule of law. If you haven’t watched SNL’s “It’s a Wonderful Trump” do it now! It’s almost as good as “It’s a WUnderful Life” (It doesn’t have pandas, but hey! not everyone can have pandas.)
I am so happy that all of you are here, following along with The Panda Chronicles! It is my privilege to share these ‘toons with you every week, and plan to continue until they drag me away. Hopefully, it won’t come to that, but I can’t imagine that I’ll “tone it down.”
Anyway…let’s get on with the final episode of…
Pinky in Wonderland!!!!!!
Mebbee Bubba isn’t going to let Pinky push him around anymore. Yeah. Right.
NOW it is actual Christmas Eve! I wish you tidings of comfort and joy, NOT treason and greed. I hope you have a little time off to celebrate the season. This is my week to see what’s what in the studio, count frames and painting panels, and start planning my year, both in paintings and in pandas. The world of the self employed artists does not have paid holidays!
You know what I want for Christmas! Hope we will get that soon!
Oh oh! What is happening! The room is spinning and it’s all going dark!
Pandaing through the snow….
Bob T Jingle Bells Panda
Oh geez. I scheduled two days posts on the same day. That’s what happens when I try to do too many things at once. So, I hereby bring you a bonus post, but not a new ‘toon because I. Had. It. All. Worked. Out.!!!!!
So here are some holiday ‘toons for your enjoyment!
This one is a classic! Classic Pinky, that is!
You better watch out….
This one next is from December of 2015. I am sorry to say that we have not improved our behavior.
Consider this my Werld Peez Pandifesto.
And let’s all sing along on this holiday classic carol! Oh tidings of treason and greed!
