Shitty Mickey

Working on season two of Shitty Mickey. Until the season premier, here’s a little something:

Mermaid Of The Oil Spill

Still pretty disgusted by what’s going on with the BP gulf oil spill. So even though I had already done one piece relating to this tragedy, felt it wasn’t enough. Did another one, and this was the result:

Mermaid of BP. Michele Witchipoo, June 2010

UPDATE: I decided to do my part for the gulf oil spill cleanup, by putting up a Cafe Press shop as a fundraiser. In other words, if you purchase a product from this online store, my proceeds will go 100% to a oil cleanup/wildlife organization. I haven’t decided which one as of yet, so if you have any suggestions, let me know. You can go here:

Thanks in advance.

I’m Here, But I Won’t Be There…(Cancellations)

Something must be in the air. Uh no, I don’t mean the leftover residue from the BP spill.

Today I received two different cancellations from two different events. Cancellations that were beyond my control. On Sunday I was supposed to have a spot at the Punk Island show. Cutie Calamity, lead singer of SMUT and maker of great hats, wanted to have an art show adjacent to the Punk Island festival. Punk Island 2010 is happening on Governor’s Island, NYC. Due to circumstances, that art show has been canceled. The music festival itself is still happening. So if you’re into great local punk bands, I encourage you to attend. As a matter of fact, I dare you to attend.

The second cancellation was for the New England Small Press Assembly, slated for next month in Warwick, Rhode Island. Well that’s not happening either. As explained on the NESPA website, unfortunate personal issues was the deciding factor. I wish Nic Carcieri all the best, and hope everything is okay.

You know, things happen for a reason, so I’m not particularly upset. It is what it is, plus it’ll give me more time for other assorted projects I’m supposed to be working on. Besides, I just got a table at the New York Comic Con 2010. Quite sure that won’t be canceled. So…if you’re in the NYC area around the weekend of October 8th – 10th, then come by and visit my table. By then I’ll have some new completed publications for sale.

Again, I apologize for any inconvenience, and hopefully see you in October!

Summer Girl Watercolor June 2010

Started this piece back in March 2010. Had to put it aside for other projects, as was the case. Yesterday came across the item, and decided to finish it.

Here was the progression of this piece:

Summer Girl Photoshop or Watercolor?

I’m a bit rusty in the watercolor department, since its been a while. Okay, plus I admit, the paints themselves aren’t the best in quality. Just wanted to get some basic exercises in, skills wise.

Cult Ov Bubblism/Goddess Of The Air Conditioner

A few years back, I tried to create my own religion of sorts. Perhaps maybe, I could make a few bucks, just like every other cult leader in America. It was a faith called Bubblism, based on the teachings of Mr. Bubble. Originally I had started the concept back in 1991. It barely left the starting gate when someone charged Mr. Bubble of covert misogyny. Why? Apparently his bubble bath was known to give women yeast infections. Mr. Bubble has vehemently denied these charges. Despite the heresy, accusations of vaginal irritation still continue to mount. Some blame the Sodium Laureth Sulfate, others blame Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Quaternium or simply the fragrance.

In 2007, Bubblism tried again. This time its plan was to convert new members through its MySpace page. A creed was planned to maximize this effect, with the planned release of “The Bubblism Manifesto.” A call to all filthy humans wishing to cleanse of all impurities and is willing to part with thee dirty money. Dirty people looking to join yet another movement.

Once again, both of these efforts failed to even reach the starting gate. The reason? Some genius forgot the password to both the Bubblism MySpace and email accounts.


One of the most sacred of Bubblism deities is The Goddess of The Air Conditioner. You can say the Goddess of The Air Conditioner is sort of like a mod con Kwan Yin. Divine air filters through this Goddess. Not many people know about her, but I was privy to her existence. She provides mercy upon those who need comfort from the blistering heat of the day. She provides comfort to those who need to sleep with cool air at night. She can often be found in supermarkets, or movie theaters. She can understand the need of viewing yet another dire mainstream film for the sake of coolness.

Not much is required in offerings. She would just prefer it if your unit was energy efficient and pay your electric bill on time.

To give you an ideal of what she looks like, here’s an image:

All Hail The Goddess of The Air Conditioner!
