Welcome back CRAZIES!!!  February's chugging along at a rapid pace here as Lent is now upon us.  I do enjoy fish and shrimp, so no meat on Friday's has never been that big of an issue for me.  I'm particularly looking forward to my first big catfish fry of the season, but enough about that!  The five or six of you that still actually visit this site when it isn't Comic Con-related wanna see some art and I got some!  So let's see which party animal has crawled in next!  Enjoy...

Meet the cool, calming Quoll, an animal I know nothing about, other than they look like spotted possums! I mean, I could Google it, but I'm just feeling kinda lazy right now, just like the Quoll!  I mean, look at it.  Does this look like a creature of industrious spirit?  I think not!  It was, however, easy to color and correct this piece, so these cute critters have my respect!

One more week to go before February heads into the history books, but fear not my dear CRAZIES as we will be ending the coldest month of the year with some art that will surely warm us up!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We are back CRAZIES!!!  And already at the halfway point in February!  Even in a leap year the month can't stretch out any further!  Know what can stretch though?  The truth!  Lies can be really long, just like noses, and our next subject has a honker that would've made Jimmy Durante blush!  So let's settle in and meet our next subject!  Enjoy...

HA CHA CHA!!!  THAT'S QUITE THE SCHNOZZOLA!!!  Not sure how many people younger than 50 will get that reference (Hell, there are people my age that probably won't get it!), but the Proboscis Monkey certainly knows his way around a nose!  Long and droopy, these poor monkeys always look kinda sad when they're eating, but at least they can smell how good their meal is!

Another week down for February, but more fun is in store, especially now that Shamrock Shake Season is starting!  About the only thing that makes Valentines Day worth it for me is the knowledge that McDonalds' delicious, minty, frozen green goo is coming back!  For now though, we'll just have to settle for more art, so be sure to come back next week and see what's next!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to February CRAZIES!!!  The most downer month of the year has passed and now we can really get to some fun stuff!  Well, fun if Mardi Gras is your thing, and for quite a few it is, but that's neither here nor there! We're not far off from the more cooler things ahead, but we'll get to that in due time.  Right now, some real party animals have shown up and are ready to get wild all month long!  So let's kick up our heals and dance with the wild things!  Let the rumpus begin!  Enjoy...

That's one sneaky simian!  Today's theme and this month's themes in general came from Animal Alphabets over on Twitter.  On this particular week, an Orangutan was chosen for the letter "O."  I took this opportunity to pay tribute to the most legendary resident of the San Diego Zoo, a rascally ape named Ken Allen.  His story was one of near tragedy that ultimately ended in triumph as he was rejected at birth by his mother and thus had to be raised by the zoo staff.  A most gentle creature, he took on many traits from his human cousins, notably the ability to unlock and open doors!  He escaped many times from his enclosure, but was so docile and tame, he would often just hang around and walk among the zoo guests, many of which thought it was a genuine routine!  The tourists may have thought it was all part of the show, but us locals would just kinda laugh go "Looks like Kenny got out again!"  Ken Allen passed away some time ago, but his gentle nature and wild spirit live on in the offspring he sired and the many hearts he touched in his lifetime.  I'm sure he keeps many an angel on their toes these days.

That's one week down in our March towards March that just happens to begin in February.  But fear not!  We got more animal antics coming from some CRAZY critters, so be sure to come back next week and see what's next!  Until then, take care, safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We've come to the end CRAZIES.  The VERY end.  As final as it gets.  The very last CRAZYVERSE post ever...  Of January 2024!  What you thought I was quitting?  Never!  So long as I have at least ONE reader left, I'll keep slogging off post after post until I inevitably drop dead by choking on a ham sandwich in my bathtub!  Until then, we still got one more bit of inflated art meant to combat bad inflation with good, so let's bounce right in before someone grabs a pin and send January off floating!  Enjoy... 

In history, there have been many great battles.  USA vs. USSR, Rocky vs. Apollo Creed, the Yankees vs. the Red Sox, even Spy vs. Spy.  But no rivalry in recent years has quite matched up in the way that this one has.  I'm talking about the battle between the Gold Evil Little Princess and the Blue Evil Little Princess!  These sisters share purple hair and the same mother, but not much else!  Their constant bickering has driven all within the castle nearly mad, from the goblin servants to the bats in the belfry to even the Queen herself!  In this piece, they've taken their sibling rivalry to new heights AND girths!  In an effort to prove that one was bigger than the other, they took to inflating themselves!  I swear there are politicians that can't hold THAT much hot air!  Will it ever end?  Only they, and their clothes, know for sure!  These wickedly adorable Evil Little Princesses are the creation of my dear friend Nora Racz.  A most fabulous illustrator, she posted some art of these vicious tykes driving their mother crazy one day and it set all our hearts ablaze!  With a little encouraging, there's now quite the series of these princesses battling it out, even teaming up once to inflate the queen!  I knew I needed one more post for my Fan Art Fridays on Twitter last year, and I didn't have to look far for inspiration.  Right now the Gold Princess has one more win than the Blue one.  We'll have to see what Nora does next!

And so ends the first month of the 2024!  We hope you enjoyed this bloated display of tastefully inflated cartoon characters!  Be sure to come back next time as we hope to kick February off right by celebrating a certain fox who's just finishing up a big milestone!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back CRAZIES!!!  Only a week left to go in this first month of 2024!  I'm pretty excited about what's coming up, but we still gotta finish up what's left, and with two posts to go, I see no reason to waste any time, so let's see what the cat, or in this case, CATS, dragged in!  Enjoy...


Oh my!  Don't those wild cats know that if you inflate a ghost, it'll fart out harmful styrofoam packing peanuts?!?  Think of the environmental impact!!!  This effort was a piece of fan art for two of my favorite creators, Chesca and J. Hause, the masterminds behind the hilarious Litterbox Comics and Grisley Comic!  Irreverent, dark, outrageous and always silly, their work is both inspiring and uplifting and I just couldn't help putting this CRAZY family of cats in a CRAZY situation mashing up both of their hilarious comics!  It's easy to assume that ghosts can't inflate, but I'd imagine it'd be closer to parachute rules more that balloon rules.  Air can be trapped, but not fully contained.  These are the kind of things that animators and cartoonists have to comprehend while coming up with gags for our stories!

Well, only one post left to go in our annual January Blow Up!  How will it end?  Royally!  Don't believe me?  Come back next week and see for yourself!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back CRAZIES!!!  We've reached the midway point of January!  We're not too far off from Pink Halloween, aka Valentines Day, but since I have no significant other, I'll just have to look forward to Mardi Gras instead.  That one's more fun anyway.  Better food, better decorations and all the beads I can carry!  Of course, as these days grow colder, one does start to pine for the warmer months that ARE on the horizon, but still a bit off.  Luckily, Bubble and pals are happy to oblige us in some Summer Lovin'!  Or in this case, Blubbin'!  We are still in a Loony mood as our salute to inflation continues with more cartoon buoyancy!  Enjoy...

Willow doesn't have it easy being Bubble's girlfriend.  She does love her foxy fella for sure, but it is quite hazardous tagging along with a walking disaster like Bubble Fox, and Willow has accidentally been on the receiving end of his shenanigans many times.  So, it was on this occasion that she decided to take a preemptive strike and render Bubble helpless before he can render her hapless!  Pepper, sadly, seemed to be caught in the crossfire of Willow just wanting a nice relaxing float at the beach!  Even the octopus seems a bit puzzled by it all!  This piece was part of the CRAZY Summer Blow Up that Jennifer Cuthbert and I hosted on Twitter last summer.  A fun event that called for artists to turn their characters into inflatables and pool floaties, it was a nice addition to the other CRAZY events we host throughout the year, and I look forward to its return in August!

Three down, two to go as we plow through January and continue our battle against inflation!  But no bubbles will burst yet, so come back next week as we keep this thing afloat!  In the meantime, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We are back CRAZIES!!!  Ten days into January already, can you believe it?!?  It'll be Shamrock Shake Season before we know it!  But enough about that.  Our fight against inflation continues as we work to battle the bad bloating with the good bloating, and this week we get some celebrity help!  Don't believe me?  Scroll down and see for yourself!  Enjoy...

Bubble you clod!  You don't inflate guests!  Especially guests with super powers!  Will that daffy fox ever learn?!?  The victim in question is AK Girl, the star of the popular Reynard City comics created by Rob Turner.  AK Girl is a foxy fighter who kicks quite a lot of butt but has one rather large problem: Anytime she touches caramel, she inflates!  Making matters worse, most of her enemies are aware of her affliction and always try to take advantage of it.  Luckily for AK Girl, she's as crafty as any fox, and always finds a way to win!  Helium on the other hand...  She's still working that one out!  Bubble wasn't exactly trying to be mean.  In addition to wanting to do fan art for her, he was also playing catch up with Helium Discovery Day!  They should all be thankful that at least it wasn't National Balloon Popping Day.  Things could've gotten messy with that!  AK Girl eventually deflated and made a mad dash for her life out off the Crazy Forest, vowing never to return again.  Who could blame her?!?

Another week down as we countdown to Christmas (Be honest, a lot of you already are and you know it!), but fear not!  PLENTY of fun to be had between then and now, and we're doing our part by having more Loony art for you next week, so be sure to come back and check it out!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!
