We are back!  It's the end of the month and I saved the biggest laughs for last!  I know y'all are feeling the buildup right now and the pressure's pretty strong, so I'll end the teasing and innuendos right now and give you all some relief!  And with that, enjoy...

Aw, the blowfish, or pufferfish to those that think they're cute.  Living balloons that are always there to cheer us up.  These breathing cartoon gags are the clowns of the oceans, though the real trick is on any predator that tries to eat one, because if their spines aren't a good enough deterrent, their highly toxic flesh definitely is!  Though fugu is a delicacy in many sushi restaurants, it takes a very skilled hand to prepare it.  I do loves me some sushi, especially a rainbow roll, but I don't want "Killed by a balloon" to be in my obituary someday, so I'll stick with the less harmful fish!  Pinch Punch Post put out this theme yet again, and I'll tell ya, there was some very well-rounded art on Twitter that day.  It wasn't a stretch to say we all expanded our horizons!

And that's a wrap for the month of May.  As of this writing, things haven't been all that merry, but every day is a new day.  I hope in some small way, these art posts have offered some relief and that June will give us all some good news to look forward to.  Until next time CRAZIES, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later.

Well, here we are, screen to screen.  What?  Did ya think I was gonna bust into the Silver Spoons theme?  I barely even remember what the plot was!  Wanna know what plot I do remember?  Jurassic Park!  Now THAT was a movie!  Hard to believe we are almost coming up on 30 years since it came out!  Seeing that on the big screen was pure movie magic.  My nine-year-old mind was totally blown and just wanted to keep watching it!  Damn near wore out my VHS copy even!  We all had our favorite dinosaurs in it, but which one was my favorite?  Scroll down dear reader and you shall see the answer!  Enjoy...

The Dilophosaurus.  Small, colorful and not particularly screen accurate!  They were bird-like and did have the ridges on their heads, but that's where the accuracies more or less end.  In reality, these dinosaurs were considerably bigger than the relatively small one that Wayne Knight encounters.  It's also highly doubtful they could spit slime.  Whether they had neck frills or not isn't really known.  Skin impressions for dinosaurs are fairly rare, so that one might be true.  Guess we'll never know.  Still, it looked great on screen and was a lot of fun to draw.  Much like the previous two entries, along with next week's, this came from the wonderful minds at Pinch Punch Post.  I think they just had a dinosaur theme, and I chose the Dilophosaurus to try and stand out.  It worked, as this one got a lotta looks on Twitter!

And that's all for this week!  Be sure to come back next time as we give May 2020 a sendoff so big, it's literally bursting!  The pressure may get to you even, so try and keep calm.  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back CRAZIES!!!  Think we could all use a bit of the beach right now.  The sand, the sun, the sea gulls swapping food and crapping on everything...  Okay, maybe not that last part, but sand, sun and surf always puts me in a good mood as do those wonderful shelled critters known as sea turtles!  These guys aren't as slow as you'd think!  Don't believe me?  Scroll down and see for yourself!  Enjoy...

See?  These reptiles are quite swift under the waves.  That blowfish certainly thinks so!  Turtles have always held a special place in my heart.  Kind and gentle, you'd have to be made of stone not to love these creatures.  When Pinch Punch Post made them their monthly subject some time ago, I jumped at the chance to draw one.  This particular sea turtle is a leatherback, though in hindsight, I don't think they have ridges along where the upper and lower shells meet.  Hey, an artist is allowed a little creative license, right?

That's all for today dear CRAZIES.  We got some prehistoric fun coming next week that'll hopefully spew forth in laughs, so be sure to come back and give it a look.  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Hey CRAZIES!!!  We're back with a new month!  I'd like to say there's some good news to report, but, sadly, we're all under quarantine still.  Has some progress been made?  Some, yes, but not enough to salvage a few a few things.  Comic Con and the Del Mar/Sand Diego County Fair have been canceled, as has WonderCon, formally abandoning its postponement.  This news hurts a lot folks, but it is what it is.  Hopefully, happier days are on the way and we can all return to some form of normalcy.  I shall try my best to offer y'all some relief, or as much relief as my goofy art can muster.  Having said that, let's dive in, shall we?  Enjoy...

Here we have a Rhino!  Not just any rhino, but a southern white rhino, given its grayish color and more come-like horns.  Northern white rhinos have rather odd shaped horns that look more like rock shards while black rhinos more closely resemble their southern white cousins, only with darker skin.  All three share a bond though: They are all endangered, critically in some cases, and need our help!  With any luck, recent breeding success at the San Diego Zoo could hold the key for bringing these magnificent creatures back from the brink!  Sorry to get preachy there.  I just love rhinos and don't wanna see them vanish.  This piece was done for Pinch Punch Post quite some time ago as the signature suggests.  Where does time go exactly?

And that's all for today.  I guess I'll go ahead and get this bit of bad news out of the way now: No CRAZY COMIC CON COUNTDOWN this year.  I'm torn to put it off for a year, but it just hurts too much having lost it this year.  I went through a lot to get reverified for pro status, and now to have nothing, well, it just seems like posting pics would be like rubbing salt in the wound.  I'm trying to take the "out of sight, out of mind" approach, but so far it's not working very well.  In time, I think we'll all be able to move on.  Sorry again folks and I hope you will all come back and see what's swimming by next week.  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catchy y'all later!
