WELCOME TO 2015!!!  And the new format!  No, the CRAZY Stuff ain't going anywhere!  It's just gonna be without a few familiar faces for a while is all!  so let's dive right in and start the new year off right with some new art for all to enjoy!  Or hate!  Totally your call!

First though, a little backstory here.  There are two wonderful groups on Twitter called Daily Doodle and Sketch Dailies.  Each weekday, they give out a topic for all to draw and post back for Twitter users to enjoy!  Well, I've amassed a rather large amount of rough pencil drawings over the past year, and many pals have asked me if I'd ever ink and color them.  Well wonder no more, because this week starts the beginning of the fruits of my labor!  Each week, unless otherwise noted, I'll be presenting a different inked and colored sketch of my various Daily Doodle and Sketch Dailies efforts!  Note that I didn't do every topic that they've posted nor will I be posting the original pencil drawings.  Those can be seen on my Twitter page and frankly, I liked them so much, I simply traced over them on my lightbox with a pen!  Sometimes you just can't beat the original!  With that said, let's get started and I hope you enjoy!

The very first one I got to do was the "Three Little Pigs" theme for the Daily Doodle.  No rhyme or reason here.  Just trying to be my silly self is all.  I do remember drawing the original maybe an hour or so before I had to head up to Anaheim to start setting up for WonderCon.  All I know is, the Big Bad Wolf will likely think twice before messing with any other pigs!

And now for some REALY cool news!  My ever so awesome pal Warren Frantz (Off Season), has introduced Bubble Fox to his students at the school he teaches at!  He took the infamous Dragon's Tale storyline and broke it up into story time for several classes!  All the kids loved the tale but felt bad for the poor dragon as he had no name.  Well, Warren and me cooked up a plan and held a Name The Dragon Contest for the kids!  I was stunned at the amount of entries I got (Over 100!), all of them amazing!  But alas, there could only be one winner, and I'm proud to say a 3rd grader by the name of Kaleb took top honors with the powerful name of Malfor!

(Here's Kaleb with his prize pack and Gully himself, Warren Frantz, celebrating Kaleb's prize pack as my video image rambles on in the background!)

I gotta tell ya, I've never been prouder as a cartoonist!  To have all those kids love the comic really filled my heart with joy and could not have come at a better time for me!  I was especially pleased that the kids were all tickled over Malfor being a blue dragon! (Bubble's a black and white toon, so the imagination's gotta be used heavily there!)  And then the news got even better when Warren sent me these from the kids:  


Bubble Fox in the Hot Tub yelling "Hot Bubbles!"  This was from one of Warren's 1st Graders! 

This piece of M&M fan art is from a little Girl named Kaylee!  See? Those two will never truly be gone from here! 

Kaylee also did this homage to a sketch card one of the runners-up received in the contest!  I tell ya, Warren's got some very talented kids at his school!

I'm still beaming from all this fanfare!  Thank you so much Warren for organizing this and for being such a great friend!  And thank you kids for being such good students!  Bubble loves all of you and has LOTS more in store in the coming year!

Well, that's all for this week folks.  We'll be back next time with a new doodle for your art appetite!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
