Another week in CRAZIES!!!  We are creeping closer and closer to the month of creepy crawlies here as September will soon give way to the noble pumpkin!  'Course, if you've been to a craft, hobby or box store lately, it's been Halloween since July...  Christmas too!  I love the holidays as much as the next guy, but I'm all about moderation too.  When the time is right, I'll celebrate.  But dammit, when it's still surfing weather and I'm seeing Christmas displays already, a line's gotta be drawn somewhere!  But enough of that hoopla!  It's art time!  As Arsenio used to say, let's get busy!  Enjoy...

The Loris...  What may well be the most adorable creature ever, this cross between a monkey, cat and guinea pig deserves to be cradled and protected at all costs!  Just look at that face.  How can you NOT want to fight for its safety?  Our last Animal Alphabets entry for the month, this was their selection for the Letter L.  Needless to say, there was a LOT of adorable art posted on Twitter that day!  The "Please don't kill me" line was a nod to the legendary "Dr. X Telethon" skit from Mr. Show With Bob & David!  To this day it's still one of the funniest things I've ever seen!

Well, only one more post to go this month, but I'm sure what's left is something you'll wanna get your claws on, so be sure to come back next time and check it out!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We are back CRAZIES!!!  And already approaching the halfway point of September!  Some of you are probably already sporting sweaters at this point, but not me!  If history's any kind of an indicator, it's probably still hotter than Hell in San Diego right now.  Then again, we just had our first hurricane warning last month, so what the hell does history truly know?  (Author's Note: These posts are written well in advance of their actual posting dates.  It could very well be freezing in San Diego right now, so who knows?).  Anyway, enough of the jibber jabber as Mr. T used to say.  Some of you actually want to see some art, and I intend to deliver!  Enjoy...

Hoo boy, a tweaked out rhino?!?  Guess we should be thankful that Javan Rhinos are the smallest of the living rhino species.  They are also one of the last two wooly rhino species left in the world today, along with the larger (But still smaller compared to their African cousins) Red Sumatran Rhino.  Still, any creature of substantial size hawked up on caffeine can be pretty dangerous if you get in their way!  Another one for Animal Alphabets, this time for the Letter J!  Rhinos are among my favorite creatures, so I was eager to illustrate this one!  Hopefully recent advances in breeding sciences will help these marvelous creatures continue on into the coming centuries and fuel even more imaginations the way they have fueled mine.

Another week down with two more to go in our September 2023 marathon here!  Be sure to come back next week as we spotlight another marvelous critter!  Until next time, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to September CRAZIES!!!  The season of pumpkin spice has officially begun!  Though I myself am not a big fan of coffee, I've got nothing but love for delicious hot chocolate and 'tis the season to drink it!  That and Jersey Mike's hot subs, but enough of that silliness, it's time for some art!  We got a swell stable of critters lined up this month, so let's open up the petting zoo and get started!  Enjoy...

Indian elephants...  Large, gentle, graceful...  And full of more gas than a congressman!  This was a part of Animal Alphabets' weekly drawing themes on Twitter (I don't care what the mealy-mouthed crotch pheasant calls it, it's still Twitter to me out of shear spite!), specifically the letter I.  It's low brow for sure, but dammit, elephants are vegetarians!  There's no way a creature that large eating that much raw plant materials WOULDN'T be farting up a storm!  Just feel bad for the fish!

That's all she wrote for this week, but be sure to come back next week as we spice things ups with a beast that's REALLY energized!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Well, we've come to the end of another month and with the coming month brings another tradition, Guest Month for Bubble Fox!  This has no actual impact on the the blog, but I'm just really proud of the art I did announcing Guest Month!  It's a mix of markers and colored pencils that I feel comes off just right!  As far as the movie I'm referencing, kudos to anyone who gets it!  Anyhoo, we still got one more piece to share before we can let August 2023 ride off into the sunset, so let's get to it!  Enjoy...

That's right folks.  Honey, the coveted nectar of the Gods, is actually just bee vomit!  Hey, there are literally grosser things out there that people willingly eat!  Just think of it like Slurm!  Anyway, this was another Animal Alphabets piece, where the theme for the letter H was a Honeybee.  Since one of the bees was a little busy, I had another one come in and do the talking!

And that's a wrap on August 2023!  I do hope you all enjoyed the return of the art!  I have plenty more to share next month, so be sure to come back and help get September up and running on the right track!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Another week down, another week closer to the fall!  I must admit, it's hard not to get excited about the coming season.  Aside from the holidays, I just prefer cooler weather!  It's a lot easier to stay warm than cool off I tells ya!  But enough about that, it's still summer time and I got some art to show, though it may be tough to get to!  Oh well, enjoy... 

Poor Gorilla.  That banana is JUST out of reach!  'Course, now this begs the question of can gorillas even swim?  Like humans, they are primates, so in theory they should be able to.  But it's not exactly something they are known for.  Guess that's a question best left for Professor Google!  Once again, today's art came from Animal Alphabets where the theme for G was a Gorilla.  Apes are critters I don't draw often, and boy is it obvious why with this one, but I have gotten better with them.

Well, only one post left this month to hurl at you, but fear not!  I promise we'll end August on a high note, though it may not be a high brow one!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We are back at it again and halfway through August now!  I know time flies, but lately it seems to be going even faster than usual.  So how about we slow down for a bit and check out some new(ish) art featuring an old pal, sound good?  Enjoy...

Oh Bubble Fox, you are a rascal!  He certainly knows how to boogie down with the best of them!  Continuing along with another Animal Alphabets theme, this particular letter landed on F for which a fox was chosen.  And what better fox than Bubble Fox to represent foxes the world over?  I tell ya, correcting this was a herculean task.  Of all the colors on here, only the dark purple flower petals wouldn't cooperate with PS Elements' Magic Wand tool.  I had to go in and practically check each one pixel-by-pixel!  Still, the end result is fun.  Has me in the mood for a daiquiri even!

That's all she wrote for now, but we'll be back next week with more monkey business than you can shake a banana at!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back to normalcy CRAZIES!!!  I know it's kinda sad that Comic Con is over, but there's still plenty of summer fun left to be had.  And if nothing else, you know the holidays aren't too far off now, so there's always something to look forward to!  But enough about that, it's time for some art!  After two months, I'm sure y'all are eager to see what old piece I've dug up this time!  Well, maybe a few of you are at least.  Either way, enjoy...


It can't be easy being an ant.  Despite being insanely strong for their size and strong in number, they are still very tiny and are considered a delicacy among many creatures, including echidnas!  Closely related to hedgehogs, echidnas are spiked critters that burrow, eat ants and are otherwise misrepresented in video games.  This piece was part of Animal Alphabets letter E theme and it was a fun one to draw.  I honestly don't know why I went with pink toenails on the front paws, but I'm sure it's because of the reference pic I researched!

Well, that's a wrap for this week, but come back next time and I promise some bubbly art will be waiting for you!  I suppose if there's any advantage to the posts returning to normal, it's that these ones are MUCH quicker to produce and read.  In the meantime, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!
