We are back as another month bites the dust, but it's all good as exciting times are on the horizon, but more on that later!  Might as well jump right into things here with the final critter of winter, so I hope y'all like it!  Enjoy...

Talk about a COLD shoulder?  This Snow Leopard's got an ICY stare that's CHILLING my very veins!  I'm literally FROZEN with fear by its FROSTY personality!  If these snow puns aren't doing it for you, I got plenty more, though perhaps my energy can be better spent elsewhere?  Much like the other three pieces this month, this was the product of the always fun Animal Alphabets on Twitter.  I won't lie, I took a very simple approach with this one, and yet, I really think it works.  Could just be me, but I was happy with the outcome, and lotta people on Twitter seemed to agree at the time.

And that's a wrap on February 2024, but March is promising to be a VERY fun month as the CRAZY WonderCon Countdown returns next week!  That's right folks!  Six weeks of past, present and even some future WonderCon coverage is seven days away and I am so excited to finally be sharing some of these pics with you fine folks!  So be sure to come back as the festivities begin!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

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!
