We are back CRAZIES!!!  Last post of 2022!  Hard to believe we've come to the new year already.  As you get older, it all seems to go by even faster.  I look back now and can't even believe that both of my brother's kids are adults now.  I was practically changing their diapers a few years ago and now they're in college?  Time really does fly.  I won't drone on too much about the previous year.  Couple of lowlights for sure.  I got Covid, which sucked, but it really could've been so much worse which is why I'll say it again here: Go get vaccinated and boosted!  That's why it wasn't that bad!  My transmission also died, which was a very costly ordeal, but I made it through and got it fixed.  Overall though, 2022 wasn't too bad.  I worked a lot, got to go enjoy some seasonal festivities and best of all, I returned to WonderCon and Comic Con after FAR too many years apart!  The future is what we make of it folks.  Are there bad things out there to deal with?  Yup.  A lot actually.  But we are better than that and we WILL push forward and make things better for all to enjoy in the coming years ahead.  I wish you all a very happy, safe and prosperous New Year and may 2023 be blessed for us all!  Take care CRAZIES.  I'll catch y'all in 2023 with NEW art, NEW stories and NEW Con pics!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all in the not too distant future!  (Next Wednesday AD!)

WOO HOO HOO HOO!!!  Christmas is here CRAZIES!!!  I won't waste any time here.  We're all excited and likely really busy with prepping for Christmas Day while also heading out for other holiday parties, festivities and such!  So let's dive right in, shall we?  Enjoy...

Hey hey!  It's Willow!  The long suffering girlfriend of Bubble Fox!  And she's singing us a lovely Christmas carol!  Why isn't Bubble with her?  Simple: He's not allowed to sing.  Court order!  That and because this was part of Illo_Advent, time was of the essence, so I likely only had time to draw one character!  Got a LOT of these drawings sitting around in old sketchbooks.  Eventually I'll get around to posting all of them!

That's it for this week!  We'll be back next time to send 2022 off on a high note, so be sure to come back!  Christmas is this weekend and Hanukkah is underway while Kwanzaa starts on Monday, so I'd like to wish you all a very wonderful and happy holidays!  If any toy, clothing or food banks are still open, please donate!  It's never too late to help those in need, regardless of the season.  Until then, take care, stay safe, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

We are back and ever closer to the big ride from the big guy in red!  No, not Truman Capote!  I'm talking about Father Christmas!  Kris Kringle!  Pierre Noel!  That wino on the street corner that the mall hired in a pinch!  SANTA CLAUS!!!  The elves are hard at work prepping the presents, reindeer and sleigh while Santa himself argues with Mrs. Claus about whether or not he should start dieting after the holidays are over.  It's an endless cycle, but a necessary cycle at that.  While you eagerly await the arrival of your gifts and family festivities, please take a moment to enjoy this little bit of seasonal art as my gift to you!  Enjoy...

Oh my are we in luck!  You've heard of Santa Claus, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and even Hanukkah Harry, but this rascally reptile tops them all!  It's Lilly the Holiday Lizard!  Her great love of ALL holidays has led her on a path to lift the spirits of everyone she comes into contact with, no matter the month or holiday!  She's a better booster than a Rankin/Bass special!  In reality, Lilly came about after a pal in England sent me a Christmas card after I'd already sent out all the ones I had ordered.  With none left, I drew a custom card with a new character, and Lilly the Holiday Lizard was born!  My friend loved it and I knew deep down this little lizard had some personality.  So I added Lilly to Bubble Fox!  She's not a regular character, but has been featured in several stories over the years and has been well-received for the most part.  She's quite scatterbrained and clumsy, two traits I know all to well!  When will Lilly strike next?  Only fate knows for sure... 

That's a wrap for this week, and hopefully for some of your Christmas shopping as well!  Trust me, you don't want to wait on that!  We'll be back next time with some more familiar characters to send us marching into the holiday weekend itself, so stay tuned!  As a reminder, food, clothing and toy donations are all open now and need your help filling them!  Donate today and help make the holidays happen for those who really need it.  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to December CRAZIES!!!  I mean, the holiday season is in full swing already here, but it was still November the last time we met, so the change in months MUST be acknowledged.  We're a few weeks away from not only Christmas Day, but a completely new year altogether!  The times are exciting for sure, but as the festivities start to take shape, let's all take a break from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a little bit of seasonal art to help calm our nerves.  Enjoy...

Uh oh.  Looks like Mike made the mistake of doing the infamous Triple Dog Dare!  Does nobody ever learn a lesson from Flick?  I think an even more troubling aspect here is Mike's total lack of warm clothing in obviously freezing temperatures!  By cartoon logic, he should be blue and have frost hanging from his nose!  Hopefully Mindy'd on her way with a cup of hot water to help!  This art was from my first ever attempt at Illo_Advent, a Twitter art collective that challenges artists to draw seasonal art for the first 25 days of December.  Not always easy, given how many things are going on during the month, but I love a good challenge!  Plus, the holidays just have a good effect on my imagination!

That's all for today, but fear not!  More seasonal fun will be scuttling over soon, so be sure to pop in next week and see who's come!  As a reminder, food, clothing and toy donations are all open now and need your help filling them!  Donate today and help make the holidays happen for those who really need it.  Until next time, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!
