Last week’s character on Sketch Lottery was none other than Morticia Adams. You can see my version of this Goth-prototype on the site.  Threw in a tad bit of an Art Nouveau influence in this sketch.

Hey ho, let’s go! Last week’s Sketch Lottery character was the late, great Joey Ramone. So you know I didn’t want to miss a chance drawing him.

Funny part was I never saw The Ramones live. However, I did see Joey Ramone walk around St. Mark’s Place twice. I didn’t go up to him. Perhaps I should have. This is why later you always end up regretting you haven’t done.

However, I was lucky enough to see Joey Ramone sing with Ronnie Spector live at the venue Coney Island High. This was sometime during the late ’90s.

Enjoy my Joey Ramone sketch, and don’t forget to check out the other artists.

What’s up with him?

Eddie Murphy's eyes....on Sketch Lottery. Character of the week was Prince Akeem from the 80s film "Coming To America." Sketch by Michele Witchipoo Nov. 2014

Eddie Murphy’s eyes….on Sketch Lottery. Character of the week was Prince Akeem from the 80s film “Coming To America.” Sketch by Michele Witchipoo Nov. 2014

A week late, but the Sketch Lottery character was Prince Akeem from the 1988 film Coming To America.’ For those who don’t know, comedian Eddie Murphy portrays Prince Akeem, a rich African prince in search of a bride. He goes to America to find the woman of his dreams, which lands him right in NYC boro of Queens.

As a side note. The scenes where Prince Akeem was working in McDowell’s were filmed on location at a local fast food restaurant. It was Wendy’s, located on Queens Boulevard, in Elmhurst, Queens. My mother used to pass by this Wendy’s during her work commute.

Years later, I moved to an area which wasn’t that far from Elmhurst. The Wendy’s location was still there. Unfortunately, that Wendy’s was known as one of the worse Wendy’s ever. In 2013, it was torn down. Below are a few online articles relating to the former business.

The sketch I did was based on the scene where Akeem and his personal assistant/best friend Sammi hit the club in search of a bride.

Not the best work I’ve done, but regardless. Enjoy my contribution on Sketch Lottery. Don’t forget to check out work by the other artists as well.

FYI – The film poster for ‘Coming To America’ was drawn by Drew Struzan.

Krampus Time Again

Soon it will be that time of the year. Halloween didn’t even arrive and yet already some retail establishments had their Xmas decor up. Either they want the year to be over with already, or they are pushing to make more money. I think the latter.

Can’t they at least wait until turkey killing day is over?

Since the holiday agenda is already being shoved down our throats, might as well bring out Krampus.
