Sheesh!  Try saying the title of today's post five times fast!  We are now more than halfway past September 2017!  So much time passes so quickly these days.  I keep thinking there's a big box somewhere that all the lost time falls into, but alas, I've yet to find it.  But at least we got art to keep us entertained until that box of lost time is found, right?  Anyhoo, enough chit chat, here's some art!  Enjoy...

Poor little bunny.  Well, he's actually a fairly big bunny now, but still, he just seems so startled by it all!  It's not his fault he makes such an adorable balloon!  This theme came from the Daily Doodle who put out the idea of a bear and bunny.  I figured there just wasn't enough alliteration with a bear and bunny, so I tossed a balloon in as well!  But then I thought to myself, "Why stop there?  Why not make the bunny a balloon?"  Next thing I know, a simple drawing becomes a one-panel gag cartoon!  See?  These things practically write themselves sometimes!

And that's wrap for today!  We'll be switching gears next week and close out September with a look back at my recent trip to Long Beach Comic Con.  So recent in fact that as of this writing, it hasn't actually happened yet!  I think I might be qualified to be a Timelord at this point!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

And we are back!  September is chugging along at a frantic pace, or at least I assume it is.  I write these well in advance, so I tend to do a lot of guessing here.  What I can say is that it IS a new week, and that calls for some NEW art!  So here it is!  Enjoy...

Hippos are quite the snappy dressers!  My memory fails me again here as to whether or not this theme was from Sketch Dailies or the Daily Doodle.  All I can recall was that the theme itself was to simply draw a hippo, and I felt he needed to be jazzed up a bit.  Enter a top hat, cane and bowtie, and you got one dapper hippo!  Thanks to cartoons, I've spent my entire life thinking that all one needs to be fancy is simply to add a top hat and bowtie to their wardrobe.  If I ever actually get nominated for an award, I'll be sure to wear both to the ceremony!

And that's all she wrote today.  We'll be back next time with a goofy bear and his "Uplifting" method of cartoon alliteration!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

September is upon us CRAZIES!!!  We have unofficially hit Fall, which means my favorite time of the year is here!  Pumpkins and vanilla!  Turkey and stuffing!  HALLOWEEN!!!  I know school's back for so many, but aren't these awesome holidays more than enough to soften the blow?  Besides, school was actually more fun in the Fall, probably because we had so many wonderful events to look forward to!  But that's enough of that.  Y'all came to see some art, and I intend to deliver!  Enjoy...

Good old Horton.  Loyal to a fault and more dedicated than any to his job!  I can't recall whether this was a Daily Doodle or Sketch Dailies theme, but one of them said to draw Horton the Elephant, so I did!  Of course, I took a bit of CRAZY license with it, implying that Horton himself laid the egg!  Elephants are a lot of fun to draw.  Their shapes are simple, making them natural cartoon critters.  I really need to draw them more often!

And that's all for this week!  Hope you enjoyed my Fall Kickoff.  We'll be back next week with another rotund critter looking to step out!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to the end... Of August!  Yup, the Summer is pretty much over now, BUT, that just means the wonderful Fall season is upon us!  Halloween!  Thanksgiving!  The start of Christmas Overkill!  What's not to be happy about?  Sure, school's back in for many kids, but I graduated years ago!  Every day is kinda pointless when you don't have a set schedule!

Anyway, before we jump into today's art, I figured I'd give y'all a heads up about the start of Guest Month over at Bubble Fox.  September has more or less become the one break I take each year from cartooning as it's pretty busy for me at work and on the home front.  So to help me get a little relief, some dear pals have stepped in to take the reigns of making sure that Bubble and his pals are thoroughly inflated with enough CRAZY gas to keep them floating the whole month while I'm gone!  It'll be a fun time for all, so be sure to stop by and take a look!  Anyway, speaking of Bubble Fox, his girlfriend Willow is the star of today's post!  Enjoy...

They don't get any more fantastic than Willow!  This was a Daily Doodle post that asked for fox art.  It was also coming off the heels of a Roald Dahl-themed week that also had a Fantastic Mr. Fox day, so I thought I'd present another fox who's equally fantastic, if not more!  Bubble may be the star of the comic, but Willow is definitely one of the most popular characters in the series.  I always enjoy creating stories centered around her.  She's the lone voice of reason in a world full of wiseguys!

And that's all she wrote for August.  I guess I should also mention that my break only affects the Bubble Fox site as this blog will still have new artwork posted to it.  Why this site and not the other?  Simple.  The work for the blog's cartoons aren't as time consuming!  Anyway, we'll kickoff September right, I promise!  I'll also be walking around at the Long Beach Comic Con this weekend, so be sure to say "Hi" if you spot me!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back CRAZIES!!!  Hard to believe, but August, and Summer, is almost over!  The older I get, the more time seems to speed up.  It seems like the month's we're supposed to have the most fun in go even faster than others!  I suppose that's just the way it is, but hey!  At least we got a dancing duck to soften the blow a little bit, right?  Enjoy...

He's got rhythm!  I'm pretty sure this was a Daily Doodle theme as they simply wanted a duck.  Well, ducks are right up there with cats as being naturally cartoony, so I went a few steps ahead and made him a dancing duck!  For those unfortunate enough to have lived through the 70's, disco music reigned supreme throughout the decade.  Among the numerous one-hit wonders the genre produced was a parody song by Los Angeles DJ Rick Dees called Disco Duck.  The song, which was done to sound like Donald Duck was on lead vocals, was a joke that more less caught on, getting national airplay.  Thankfully, disco music eventually faded out and Disco Duck was placed in the same closet that The Macarena, The Electric Slide and Call Me Maybe all reside in.

And that's all she wrote!  We'll be back next time with double the art to close down August as CRAZY goes on vacation!  Se be sure to come back!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

And we're back!  Hopefully y'all are having a nice week as Saturday rapidly approaches.  If not, well, maybe this CRAZY cat will help make your hump day a little more tolerable.  Whatever the case may be, enjoy...

Never come between a cat and its string.  The results could be lethal!  I honestly can't recall who came up with the theme, but I believe it was a Daily Doodles entry.  Cats are naturally cartoony, so it's always a pleasure to draw one when the opportunity presents itself.  Especially calico cats!  Don't know why, but they're just so darn cool!

And that's all for today!  Come back next week for some duck art that will hopefully "Quack" you up!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

After nine long weeks of all-Comic Con pics, we are back to a relatively normal state here at the CRAZYVERSE.  Or about as normal as things can be on a site run by me!  Yeah, I'll miss the bliss that is SDCC, but life must go on!  Besides, I'll have some Long Beach Comic Con pics to post soon, so all will even out eventually!  Anyway, there's been a severe lack of colored art on the blog lately, so why not remedy that with a piece I did for charity recently!  Enjoy...

My good friend, Sean Webster, is one of the UK's premiere illustrators.  He's also a fan of the critters and, along with his mother, started the charity Draw For Animals.  The goal is to raise money for the Chester Zoo and their work with endangered animals.  Being an animal lover myself,  I didn't need convincing to jump on board with this and now, to the best of my knowledge, this Alligator and his swamp pals are up for grabs for anyone looking to add a little bit of CRAZY to their collection.  And best of all, it's for a good cause!  So click the link in this paragraph and help some critters out!

Well, that's all for this week.  It feels good to have some art back up on here.  We'll be back next time with a feisty feline who needs a fix.  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
