Welcome back!  Simple post today as I'm prepping for San Diego Comic Fest!  Actually, I wrote this weeks ago, but it still makes a good excuse!  Anyway, first up is the art!  Enjoy…

This piece came from a Daily Doodle theme, which may have been called "Jungle Jam" originally.  Probably should've added more animals but only had time for three.  Cut me some slack will ya?  More times than not, I was drawing these on the fly!

And now for the info on San Diego Comic Fest!  It's this weekend at the Town And Country Resort in Mission Valley!  I will be in Artist Alley and may even be on a panel!  Here are my booth prices:

  • BUBBLE FOX books are $10
  • MIKE AND MINDY books are $6
  • SKETCH CARDS are $3 per card or 4 cards for $10
  • SKETCHES are $5 and FREE for kids under 12
  • PAPERCRAFT KITS are a dollar a sheet and you can choose between Mike or Mindy
  • CON SPECIAL is all four books and a sketch card for $30
Remember that ALL sketch/sketch card requests MUST be PG!!!  NO ADULT STUFF!!!  My comics are for all ages and I'd like to keep it that way.  And, as usual, supplies are limited so get it while you can!  Other than that, come on up and see me!  Lots of other great folks are coming to the Fest too, so come say hi to all of us!  And for more up-to-date info, follow me on Twitter!

Well, that's all for now!  I'll be back next time with some "Dark" art from an old classic!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all at San Diego Comic Fest!

Welcome to February CRAZIES!  Normally, this would've marked the start of the CRAZYVERSARY, but alas, Mike and Mindy are no more and thus things need to move on.  But's what's this?  Some M&M fan art?!  Well I'll be!

My good pal Dustin Pike tweeted me this wonderful art on New Year's Day!  It captures the spirit of Mike and Mindy quite nicely!  As you can see, they haven't slowed down at all in their retirement!  Thanks again Dustin!  To see more of his funny and amazing art, follow this blue text

Next up is the first blog toon of the month!  It combines two of my favorite things: Wrestling and The Princess Bride!  Enjoy...

It's Fezzik!  At some point in 2014, Sketch Dailies did a Princess Bride week.  I was only able to do one day because of work, but at least I had the time to draw it on the day they picked my favorite character: Fezzik!  Played by the late Andre the Giant, Fezzik was a gentle soul who preferred the simpler things in life.  Not much of a stretch for Andre to play him really.  In the ring, Andre was an impressive wrestler.  At 7ft-5in tall and over 500lbs., he could be quite scary to see.  Outside of the ring, however, he was a fun-loving guy always living life to it's fullest.  He travelled the world wrestling everywhere and in 1987, he and Hulk Hogan set a record for indoor attendance at WrestleMania III.  Andre never let his condition stop him from enjoying life.  He set a good example to follow.

Well, that's all for now.  I'll be back next time with some party animals and some info on my only Con appearance this year, so be sure to come back!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

And the first month of 2016 is just about in the books!  Hopefully it's gotten off to a good start.  Mind you, this is being written almost a month prior by Past Jon, who has no clue at all what the present holds for Future Jon!  And then Present Jon comes into play and everything really gets out of whack!  So instead of possibly causing a rift in the space-time continuum (AGAIN!!!), I'll just cut to the chase with this cartoon about farting!  Enjoy…

Fart-powered transportation… Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?!  There's a crap-ton of methane in the world and if it's getting burned off, that'll make it harmless to the atmosphere!  In theory anyway.  I don't recall what the exact theme was, but I know it was a Daily Doodle theme, and that the pencil art for this piece was one of the most Fav'd/RT'd tweets I ever posted!  What can I say?  Everyone loves a fart joke, especially when fire's involved!  I'm just wondering what the hell this kid was eating?  He got more gas than a politician!

And so we close out January of 2016!  Hope y'all enjoyed the CRAZY offerings this month and I look forward to bringing you even more hilarity in February!  Sadly, there will be no CRAZYVERSARY this year.  With Mike And Mindy being over for a year now, I just don't see any need to continue it.  Life must go on, and Bubble Fox and Peppertown are the future!  Having said that, I'm always happy to receive M&M fan art should anyone feel inclined!  Anyway, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Hello CRAZIES!  Halfway through January already?  Why must time fly the older we get?  Seriously, we're now 11 months away from Christmas (And eight months away from the traditional start of the Holiday Overkill Season!)!  Oh well.  I guess we'll just have to bide our time with some art, which I just happen to have!  Enjoy…

"A Toad On A Toadstool"… Thus was the theme put out by Sketch Dailies a while back, and one I was more than happy to draw!  I've always loved frogs and toads.  I love all amphibians and reptiles!  That people are terrified of something as sweet as a fat, funny frog is beyond me.  They're friendly and beneficial.  And can totally cut a rug too!  So if you see a frog or a toad dancing on a mushroom, be sure to give it a nice pet on the head and a fly or two.

That's all for this week folks.  I'll be back next time to close out January in "Explosive" fashion!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

And we're back!  This is looking to be the month of simplicity here in the CRAZYVERSE.  Don't believe me?  Well then, just check out the art below to see for yourself...

This post I believe came from Sketch Dailies whose theme was simply "Draw A Gnome."  These mythic imps are often overlooked on the fairytale creature scale because, well, elves and leprechauns are straight cooler!  Seriously!  Santa doesn't even use gnomes due to their excessive drinking!  And those pointy hats have been known to put eyes out!  Anyhoo, every gnome deserves his day, so today, I toast to you, drunken imp!  May you profit from all of your underpants pilfering!

Well, that's all for this week.  We'll be back next time with some art that'll hopefully get ya hopping' happy!  Until then, take care, and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to 2016 my CRAZIES!!!  I certainly hope y'all had a great holiday season and had a lot of fun times with friends and loved ones.  It's time to start a new chapter of CRAZY, and what better way to get started than by jumping right in?  Enjoy the first new art of the year...  

This theme came from the Daily Doodle, which was, if memory serves, a "Raccoon Dad."  It's one of my more simpler toons, but one I love a lot.  It's a very sweet piece I feel.

Well, that's all for now.  New Year's just gotten started and things are looking like they're gonna be very busy!  But I'll still be back next time with a small post that'll deliver some large laughs!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

And so we've come to it at last.  The end of 2015.  This year was not a particularly good one for me personally.  Many things happened along the way that I'd just as soon forget ever happened.  Of course, it's not without some successes, few as they may be.  I finally did well at WonderCon, launched a new comic and made many new friends.  It's the positives I'll be focussing on when I look back at this year and hope to build on that while making 2016 the best year I possibly can.  Anyway, that's enough rambling.  Christmas is over, New Year's is on the way and you all wanna see which art I'll be closing out the year with, so here it is!  Enjoy…

This is why you don't tap the glass kids.  Snakes really don't like that!  This theme was another Daily Doodle piece although the exact theme again escapes me.  You may be wondering why I do more Daily Doodle entries than Sketch Dailies.  I honestly don't prefer one over the other.  They are both great and I enjoy taking part in as many as I can.  SD does tend to attract a more mature audience as opposed to DD which typically holds on to a more all-ages approach, which suits me better.  With that being said, both have resulted in many incredible pieces of art being created and it's worth getting a Twitter account just to see what Sketch Dailies and Daily Doodle will come up with next!

And that does it for 2015.  I know I said the past year wasn't too good for me personally, but creatively speaking, I loved doing all these color pieces for the CRAZY fans!  I know Mike And Mindy ending was a bit of a blow, to me anyway, but I'm really happy with the direction my other comics are going in and these blog cartoons have been a blast!  I can't wait to polish up even more of them in the coming year!  Anyway, have a fun, safe and Happy 2016!  Take care, and I'll see y'all next year!
