Well, that's it.  Game over.  End of the line.  The finale is here...  For May 2021.  What?  Did you think I was quitting?  Well, no such luck!  It's been 11 years now, and I still haven't lost interest, so I may as well keep going!  I just gotta keep getting my slice of this sweet, sweet blog pie!  And speaking of pie, get your slice by scrolling down!  Enjoy...

PUNS!!!  GET YER PUNS!!! HERE!!!  FRESHLY BAKED PUNS!!!  Probably the only cartoon trope I use more than helium would be those oh-so-sweet puns!  And the more groan-inducing the puns, the better, and this one induced quite a few!  You would've thought I'd walked onto a beach full of sea lions the groans were so loud!  It was the magnet cream pie that did it.  Not even Kim Belding could stand it!  This, like was every other post this month, was a Pinch Punch Post entry, from April 2017. The theme was simple: A magpie!  Admittedly, it's not totally accurate.  Magpies usually have white markings on them too, but I chose the more traditional cartoon approach.  Oddly enough, crows and ravens have long been drawn the same way, despite neither bird having orange beaks or legs.  Perhaps now, magpies will get their due, and crows will be drawn properly.  As it stands, Heckle and Jeckle are the only cartoon magpies to be accurately labeled as their true bird!

And that's a wrap on May 2021!  Next week, I'll dig up something to make y'all laugh the month of June away.  Sadly, SDCC was cancelled again, so no CRAZY Comic Con Countdown this year.  I really wish that weren't the case, but safety must come first.  Numbers in California are dropping, so fingers crossed that next year, we can have cons again because I needs me some cosplay pics!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

HERE I COME TO SAVE THE WEEEEEEEEEEK!!!  Well, maybe.  I mean, it's just some simple art that I hope makes your day a little better.  But it could also be the greatest art ever!  But probably not, just passable.  What does all the contradictory babbling mean?  Scroll down and find out!  Enjoy...

Oh Mighty Mouse, you're far too kind!  There's not much backstory to this one.  Pinch Punch Post picked mice as a theme, and I decided to make a pun out of it.  Mighty Mouse was an easy selection.  He's surprisingly relevant still despite the fact that his cartoons haven't been seen on television regularly in over 30 years and his home video presence consists of ONE short on numerous public domain collections and three shorts on the New Adventures of Mighty Mouse DVD set.  There's a whole host of theories as to why the old Terrytoons shorts aren't available, despite being owned by Nickelodeon through the Viacom acquisition (Which is why they're among the few classic cartoon series that haven't been on Cartoon Network), but we won't get into that here.  All I knew was, his name made him an easy choice.  The other mouse, not so much.  Then I remembered there was a band called Modest Mouse, and that name totally worked so I ran with it!  Funny thing is, until I drew this, I'd never actually heard any of their songs!  Some pals recommended the song Float On, and I must admit, it was pretty catchy with a fun, animated music video attached.  Better late than never is among my mottos in life!

That's all for this week.  Be sure to come back next time so that we can finish off the Merry Month of May with some art that would certainly make Mighty Mouse's pals Heckle and Jeckle smile a bit!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Say hey we're in back in May!  Things are plodding along at an acceptable speed here at the CRAZYVERSE, or at least they were until that blasted bird showed up.  What do I mean?  Hold onto your feathers and scroll down to see!  Enjoy...

LOOK!!!  UP IN THE SKY!!!  IT'S A...  Bird?!?  An actual bird this time?!?  Why yes it is!  But this ain't just any old bird.  Why, it's Rocket Rooster!  Barnyard clucker by day, rocket powered daredevil by night, Rocket Rooster rules the roost with his jetpack, shades and bitchin' leather jacket!  You never know WHAT is gonna happen when Rocket Roost blasts in to town!  Another entry from Pinch Punch Post, this one also served as an experiment as I was looking at possibly using this character in a Bubble Fox storyline.  Never could figure out how to fit a jet-packed chicken into wacky world that is BF, but I'll figure it out eventually.  I mean seriously, look at his design!  How can I not do something with him? 

And that's all I got for this week.  Be sure to come back seven days from now to see some art that will be humbly presented.  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

 Welcome to May CRAZIES!!!  New month, new digs, new hopes!  The world is still having some issues, but, as of this writing at least, things are looking up a bit.  Hopefully things will continue to improve.  We'll just have to wait and see.  But enough about that.  The few of you who still read this blog expect art, and I intend to deliver!  Deliver BIG that is!  What do I mean?  Scroll down and see!  Enjoy...

Pygmy hippos are much smaller than their river hippo cousins.  Pump-me hippos have the advantage of being cartoon characters and thus totally expandable!  This entry was from the Pinch Punch Post Twitter art collective, which posts monthly.  This was the theme for January 2017 and I had fun with this one.  I mean, it features my trademark gag, so how could I not?  The Twitter regulars got a kick out of it too, so that made me happy, but I assure you I got no inflated ego from it!

That's all for this week!  Be sure to come back next time as we blast off and REALLY rocket into things!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!
