Archive for the ‘Illustration’ Category

Last fall I brought my first Wacom drawing tablet. Now you think I would be creating illustrations with it. Instead, I’m continuing to use the old fashioned method. Sketching by hand.

Case in point. Check out my latest sketch.

SpiderWeb300dpiMay2018831

Black and white original illustration by Michele Witchipoo. May 2018. 

Then here’s the same piece after a treatment of watercolor. The scan of the colored version threw me off. The flesh tones look quite different in person. However, I don’t mind the smoker effect from the scan.

Spider Lady illustration after colored with watercolor. The scan has altered the colors somewhat. Michele Witchipoo. May 2018. 

Thinking about selling the original illustration, after I put it in a custom frame. Usually I sell only prints. That decision was made after I sold my original David Bowie/Aladdin Sane watercolor illustration. The Spider Lady item isn’t something I’m attached to. Despite her lovely spiderweb. Have to work on other illustration and sketches now. Will be back with another Psycho Bunny sketch of the week very soon.

Completed this sketch last week but didn’t get a chance to post until today. Just as well, spring finally arrived over in my neck of the woods.

Other news? Saw The Melvins live over at Warsaw in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. They did not disappoint. Redd Kross member Steven McDonald joined the band a few years back. Haven’t thought about Redd Kross in years. Saw that band open for a reunited Dead Boys back in the late ’80s. Stiv Bators was so burnt out, Dead Boys barely made it through their set. Not interested in the latest Dead Boys reincarnation. Besides. Have some current items to work on. My three month ‘vacation’ is over. Eventually I’ll fix my website.

Don’t have much time today, so here’s the usual social media hints:

On Facebook there’s pages for Psycho Bunny and for Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress. On Twitter there’s my own account, and one for Psycho Bunny. World Ov Witchipoo is my Tumblr one. On Instagram there’s WitchipooArt. Got some cool stuff on RedBubble, including cute summer dress featuring my designs. See everyone soon.

The Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for Monday, April 15th, 2018. Based on the comic written and drawn by Michele Witchipoo on her own imprint, WitchesBrewPress.

Over the weekend, a few approached me inquiring if I was ever going to work on another Psycho Bunny comic. It even came up on Sunday while having dinner with a friend at my new favorite eatery, Onderdonk and Sons because they make killer burgers. The burgers come in both vegetarian and meat varieties, but getting back to Psycho Bunny. Will there be another issue? That’s a good question. Good news is yes, I do have a few stories in the works, so please be patient. In the meantime, I am available for commissions, so don’t be shy.

As some await for the next issue with baited breath (an exaggeration), there all these lovely social media account you can check out for the latest updates.

Until next time ladies and germs.

Sometime this week was my birthday. Not revealing the exact date, but this year’s celebration was lovely. I’m truly grateful to have friends who care for me deeply. This time I was taken out for some delicious Indian food, where we stuffed ourselves so silly, we could barely walk out. Afterwards I received a lot of kind birthday wishes and messages from all over. Let’s just say this all warmed up my little black heart.

It was one of the nicest birthdays I had in recent years. The other memorable birthday was when I arrived back in NYC in late 2007. The year 2008 was pretty significant, both professionally and personally. Especially after spending two years in sheer purgatory. In a way, it was a good thing I was back in the big bad rotten apple during 2008. Looking back I was very lucky to catch much of the old NYC before everything closed down, becoming ultra gentrified.

 One of my best friends, arranged a surprise gathering in honor of my birthday. We all met somewhere in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, in which we headed towards Double Down. Once inside Double Down we eventually took over the entire bar. This wasn’t planned. The rather spontaneous invasion was pretty wild. That kicked an entire week of me celebrating my birthday returning to New York. Think of it as the lost weekend extended. Don’t ask me what else happened that week. By the time my actual birthday came around, it was on Saturday and I was so completely hungover. Then  came the realization I was supposed to be at Stony Brook, Long Island. The occasion? Vending at a table then speaking on a panel for I-CON. We boarded the Long Island Railroad, regaining my composure in time for both the table and panel.

Rest assured, I’m professional most of the time. I-CON 27 went rather well, and then a small group of us headed for sushi somewhere in Nassau County.

Blast from the past. Me on Saturday April 5, 2008 at I-CON 27, Stony Brook University, Long Island, New York.

This year was no need for any sort of alcohol. The company, conversation and Indian food was good enough. Perhaps this is a sign of maturity. Somewhat. A bonus was receiving all these wonderful gifts, like jewelry, and a copy of Howard Chaykin’s The Divided States of Hysteria in collected graphic novel form.

Here’s a quick birthday sketch. Purposely done in garnish colors, because life can be a bizarre circus. Enjoy.

So Monday came around and I was stumped. Suppose I could do some kind of Easter sketch. After all, Easter just passed. Then again, Psycho Bunny is a rabbit. So doing some sort of Easter bunny parody would’ve been too easy. Perhaps I just wasn’t in the mood.

Hence, Roy Lichtenstein.

Some people believe Lichtenstein was a modern art master. Others believe he was a plagiarist. Whatever opinions you may hold regarding Lichtenstein, here’s the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week.
