This past weekend, I had a table selling my comics at WinterCon 2015. Out of all the comics cons I’ve done, WinterCon had to been the most swankest, for it took place inside Resorts World Casino.

Over the two days I immediately sold out of my handmade Krampus ornaments, sold Krampus greeting cards, sold a few of my comics, and towards the last hour and a half, did a commission.

As mentioned before, out of the blue someone dropped by my table requesting a commission. My work is on the right.

Among one of the lessons learned over the weekend – don’t skimp on bringing merchandise for your table. My Krampus tree ornaments sold within the first hour, leaving me with just a sign. No worries. More will be made, and for sale at the Kinda Punky Flea Market in Brooklyn Dec. 20th, and in my Etsy store. So keep on checking my shop for updates.

As seen on Sketch Lottery. Introducing my extremely quick sketch of the Fourth Doctor, also known as British actor Tom Baker.

TomBakerFourthDoctorCROP

Quick drawing of Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and his best known companion, Sarah Jane. Of course, daleks are never satisfied. Drawn by Michele Witchipoo, Nov. 2015 for Sketch Lottery. Pen and ink.

I have a particular fondness for the Fourth Doctor. Growing up during the early 1980s, I discovered Doctor Who by syndication. It was broadcast on a local NYC television station, WOR, which was channel nine on the dial. It’s Saturday early afternoon slot was right before wrestling.

For the hell of it, I’ll slap on this video:

For months watching Doctor Who became my weekend ritual, watching the Fourth Doctor and his companion Sarah Jane Smith on their various adventures. Not much was known back about Doctor Who. I didn’t know that Doctors regenerate, with companions that come and go. So when Sarah Jane left, I was heartbroken. Leela just wasn’t the same. Foolish, I know. Thus stories of Time Lords was eventually dropped along with those tacky wrestling matches that followed afterwards. Besides, music was taking over. It was the age of New Wave and ’80s Pop. Joan Jett, The Go-Go’s, and later Culture Club with Boy George captured my imagination. After all, I was only 13 years old.

Of course years later, Doctor Who finally broke out of PBS obscurity. If you follow pop culture, you probably know the rest. As they say, you never forget your first Doctor. While I’m fond of the Tenth Doctor, portrayed by David Tennant, my favorite still remains the Fourth, as defined by Tom Baker.

Anyway, check out my piece on Sketch Lottery, and of course, don’t forget to check out the other artists. I’ll leave you with another WOR station identification clip.
