Psycho Bunny receives a gift – but he’s a bit ungrateful.

This week’s Psycho Bunny sketch of the week.

Psycho Bunny is not happy with his gift. Based on the comic written and drawn by Michele Witchipoo, on WitchesBrewPress. Dec. 2016.

There will be one more event where you can purchase my comics, greeting cards and seasonal tree ornaments before the year is over. Details forthcoming.

Don’t forget to like Psycho Bunny on his Facebook page, and for WitchesBrewPress as well. New Psycho Bunny sketch next week!

It’s that time of the year again. Only Psycho Bunny doesn’t meet Old Saint Nick. He runs into Krampus. Psycho Bunny is so numb, he almost expects this.

Introducing the Psycho Bunny Sketch of The Week.

Psycho Bunny meets Krampus. The Psycho Bunny sketch of the week. Based on the comic written and drawn by Michele Witchipoo on WitchesBrewPress. Nov. 2016. 

This Saturday I will be at Catland Books, for their second Crimson Hand Comic Arts Festival in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Don’t forget to click “like” on Facebook for the Psycho Bunny Comix page. Also now selling my holiday tree ornaments which includes Krampus and David Bowie. Greeting cards also available.

Over time I’ve dabbled in handmade crafts, such as with jewelry, hair clips and such. Just never did the craft market thing, despite its popularity within the past few years.

Costume jewelry. Created summer 2014. 

In late 2014 I took the jump into making greeting cards, starting with Krampus. That went over pretty well, so in 2015, I expanded not just with designing other greeting card designs but creating handcrafted Krampus ornaments.

As you can guess, I’m expanding the greeting cards and ornaments even further. This year there’s going to be a bit more variety with the Krampus ornaments, and possibly creating new designs, as with one for David Bowie.

Okay, so 2016 was technically a crappy year. Personally it wasn’t bad for me, but in general let’s just say it sucked. So perhaps these new items might bring some much needed cheer.

If you’re interested in ordering any of the items: greeting cards are $3.00. Ornaments start at $3.00, but most of them are $5.00 and up. Not including S&H, which is an additional $3.00 (unless it’s international). PayPay accepted online. Send me an email to order, and to calculate S&H.

Below are photos to give you an ideal of what I’ve made. More forthcoming. In addition to these new items, I’ve also whipped up a new batch of the red glitter Krampus ornaments. These will be available both online and in future comic cons. The next comic con coming up is a local one. Catland’s Crimson Hand Comic Arts on Saturday Dec. 3rd, in Bushwich, Brooklyn. Free admission starting at 1pm.

Psycho Bunny isn’t having a good month. Now he realizes Thanksgiving is just around the corner. He’s still recovering from November 8th. He hasn’t been dealing very well with the election results. Thus, Psycho Bunny has been handling the news in the only way he knows how.

Still trying to get back on track. Stay tuned for photos from MICE, and the return of the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week.

From Thursday Oct. 6 to Sunday Oct. 9, I felt as if I lived at the Javits Center. That’s because it was the annual New York Comic Con. Earlier this year I received my Pro pass for which itself felt good.

As usual it was packed and the cosplayers were out in full force.

To the left as you walked into the main entrance, there was a entire section dedicated to Wonder Woman. Not just because the Wonder Woman movie will be released in 2017, but Oct. 2016 marked the 75th anniversary of the character’s first appearance. There were also a lot more Wonder Woman cosplay than ever before.

To my relief there wasn’t as many Harley Quinns, but plenty of Pokemon characters. There was some unique ones that stood out above the others. Darth Maul looks happy here.

NYCC 2016 had an increase in Bob’s Burgers cosplayers. Louise and Tina Belcher were the most seen. Occasionally you would run into the entire family.

During the course of the four day event, I checked out a few panels. Panels are very good. For one, they give you a wealth of information in regards to the comic book industry, or discuss pop culture. If all else fails, you can rest your weary feet in the seat closest to an outlet to recharge your cell.

Some of the panels I attended were: BOOM Studios, DC Comics, and IDW (where they discussed an upcoming release to benefit the Orlando Pulse shooting victims).

Two panels however intrigued me the most. One was for Trump magazine (NO! Not Donald Trump!!!) put on by Dark Horse and Kitchen Sink Press. In 1956, Trump Magazine was a short-lived publication financed by Hugh Hefner, and put together by MAD Magazine’s Harvey Kurtzman. Among some of the speakers on that panel were Denis Kitchen and Al Jaffee.

The other panel that grabbed my attention was the panel titled ‘Bringing Stories To Life: Holding a Comic Con at Your Library.’ Here local librarians from Connecticut explained the ins and outs of operating local comic cons from the library.

Back for more cosplay.

One thing you cannot forget. The real reason why we have comic cons in the first place. To promote comics. As in artists, writers, pencilers, inkers, etc. Onward to Artist Alley.

Walking around the Javits Center was exhausting. It was time to head home and come back another day.

During the NYCC, I found out there was going to be a panel for the latest Planet of The Apes reboot series. Since I was a huge fan of POTA, I trekked all the way out of the Javits Center to the Theater At Madison Square Garden. That’s where they held the special events, like the one for Doctor Who earlier during NYCC.

Point blank, this Q&A ‘career conversation’ with actor Andy Serkis, who portrays Ceasar in the Apes reboot was the only letdown during NYCC 2106. This might be clarified why in separate blog post.

I stuck around however to catch the Stan Lee panel at the same venue. Which went off much smoother. Moderated by film director and famous geek Kevin Smith, the panel also had Walt Simonson and Chris Claremount. The packed house was treated to an oral recollection of Marvel comic history. Insert very crappy photo of the panel itself.

Barely getting enough rest, it was time to head back to NYCC.

Since NYCC has become so popular, expect free swag. During the weekend I got a free Monster energy drink which I usually never touch, some wafer cookies and a complimentary sample of Death Coffee.

The cosplaying continued.

The last day of NYCC was spent getting merch I didn’t need like this Muttley POP. Then off to cruise Artist Alley once more.

This year there was some new interesting talent in Artist Alley, as well as those established such as Terry Moore (Strangers In Paradise), Joe Staton, and Erik Larsen (Savage Dragon).

One person that stood out was graffiti artist Andre Charles, otherwise known as ACharlesNYC. I brought a pin from him. He was so kind to give me a second one for free. Which was a score because I was having trouble which color to choose from. Besides, it’s always good to share old school NYC memories with someone.

Another new comic I discovered during NYCC was titled Pugly.

pugly_poster1_missing1

Also snagged a free issue of Faith, a popular comic book title now published by Valiant.

Of course some more cosplay.

Some T-Rex creatures were spotted as well.

Another trend I noticed. This year people were cosplaying with their pet dogs. I asked someone cosplaying a character from Adventure Time how he got his dog in. He replied listing your pup as a service dog. While it’s cute, I was left wondering if it was safe at all for the dogs themselves.

Another curious observation during the NYCC weekend. I kept on seeing something scribbled on the bathroom doors inside the ladies room. Later I discovered it was a quote from The Handmaid’s Tale in Latin: ‘don’t let the bastard grind you down.’  Quite fitting for these times, especially during the current U.S. Presidential election, in which NYCC was the perfect escape from. Ironically, this was the same weekend that news broke out about Trump ‘grabbing pussy.’

In all it was fun as always. Maybe one day I’ll have another table at NYCC Artist Alley again. Till next year.

Psycho Bunny tried to say a little prayer for us.
