We are back for one last time in September of 2023 my CRAZIES!!!  The days pass quicker it seems, but that only means the holidays will be here sooner, for better or worse.  I for one am excited to up my Halloween game as there's a lot going on around Southern California to put me in a spooky mood!  Not to mention my own spooky yard display, but enough about that, it's time for some art!  And you might wanna get some butter and lemon for this post!  Enjoy...

Oh my.  He doesn't seem like a very happy camper!  Guess if my final destination was a steaming pot of boiling water, I'd have my guard up too!  We're closing out this month with an entry from Pinch Punch Post, another fun Twitter collective I take part in.  The theme this go around was a crab, and I decided to be extra crabby with this one!  It's always the meanest crabs that are the tastiest too!

Well, that's wrap on September, but fear not!  PLENTY of spooky fun is in store for next month, so be sure to come back next week and help us kick October off on the right foot!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

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!
