This week decided to experiment a bit. So this week’s sketch has a slight surreal feeling. Of course, Psycho Bunny himself only has one thing on his mind.

Introducing the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for Monday, July 10th, 2017.

Slight Surrealism, Psycho Bunny style. Based on the comic written and drawn by Michele Witchipoo on WitchesBrewPress. Posted Monday July 10th, 2017. 

In case you didn’t know, here’s some links. There’s the Psycho Bunny and Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress Facebook pages. Don’t forget Tumblr, and Instagram.

Slowly catching up to where I left off, before a series of events occurred. In the middle of all the chaos, a friend gave me her VIP pass to Art On Paper during NYC Art Week. Also could’ve gone to Volta NY, but what great timing. Having to turn those passes down really bummed me out.

Anyway. Enjoyed Art On Paper more than originally thought. My apologies also extend to losing the credits to who did what in these photos.

The event was a combination of both old and new, established and rising. In various booths there were some social commentary. Some anti-Trump pieces, as you will see in this post.

Nothing inspires artists like political dissent.

Of course, among all the political statements, don’t forget to get your top dollar refreshments. This drink in the photo below costs $14. Now excuse me as I roll my eyes.

Eventually stumbled upon work by the established, such as Warhol and Picasso. When I glanced at this portrait of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Warhol was a teen hero of mine. Right before entering high school, I was fascinated with Warhol and his entire Factory scene. As a 14 year old Boy George clone, I read that Edie Sedgwick biography as if it was the bible. Memories. Not so much into Warhol anymore but still appreciate what he did.

When I was 16, I spotted Warhol walking on third avenue, east 50s, in Manhattan. Near my old high school. He knew I recognized him, so he quickly turned the corner. Okay, so it didn’t help that my hair was thisbig. After my Boy George phase, I went completely into copying Siouxsie’s look. He died later that year.

Here’s some Picasso for you.

What amazed me was seeing the fine art trend of applying glitter. I’ve been using glitter in my own paintings for years. Here’s some examples.

Hopefully next year things will be better, so I can attend more shows during NYC Art Week.

I was being nice with the title of this blog post.

For this blog, I’ve more or less stayed away from politics, except for the webcomic Shitty Mickey and occasional mentions of Occupy Wall Street. That was way back when, however. In late 2016, it’s a whole other matter. What 2017 will bring is very unnerving.

Getting to the point, I’m not happy with the current president-elect. I think he’s unfit for office, and a very dangerous man. The last thing you need to read is yet another blog offering up political opinions. So I’ll let the below image speak for itself.

WARNING: NOT SAFE FOR WORK (NSFW)

I was aiming for tacky, lewd and orange. Oh, and the hashtag I got from Instagram. So thanks Instagram.

Who knows what 2017 will bring. Perhaps the electoral college will change their votes, or he will get impeached. Pence, his VP is actually worse, but Pence is also a career politician – also less likely to press that red nuclear button. Following Pence is Paul Ryan. Basically we’re doomed.

Never have I been so grateful to live in a blue state in all my life.

In general, 2016 has been a wretched year. For me personally, it’s been kind. On an international level, not so much. What’s worse is for all the nonsense news we hear such as Kayne West meeting up with Trump, Aleppo was being bombed. Hell, I even surprised myself by shedding a tear for Mohammad Alaa Jaleel. He’s better known as “The cat man of Aleppo.” If you don’t know who he is, you should. A fellow cat lover who risked his life to help care of all the stray and abandoned cats in war torn East Aleppo. He has everything to lose and nothing to gain by taking care of these animals, but he has something that’s becoming increasingly rare today – compassion. If anyone deserves the Noble Peace Prize, it’s him.

Enough of my soap box. I’ve made greeting cards out of that repulsive image that resembles Cheetos man. I’m NOT going to be selling these cards at every future event. If I decide to, i’ll be very selective as to where. Regardless, these will be available on demand. If you want this card, you can send $3.00 to PayPal. Some of the proceeds from this card will be donated to charity. Just haven’t decided which one as of yet. Maybe it’ll be a feminist organization, an LGBT group, or for Standing Rock, or towards the Cat Man of Aleppo. As long as it’s a reputable charity. We’ll see how many are actually sold. Regardless. Buy a card for someone you loathe.

#trumpsucksballs greeting card. Dec. 2016.

For the past month, I’ve been passing this wall inside the Union Square subway station in NYC. Here’s some of the photos I’ve taken. I also added to this Post-It wall. Some of the Post-It notes are now being archived.

You can kinda tell which ones I did. And yeah…I did the testicles one too.

  2016 has been an overwhelming year. It’s enough to make anyone misanthropic. So before I go, I’ll leave you with this meme. Cause if you’re going to be misanthropic, make sure it’s everyone equally.

One last fair to close out 2016. Alright, so 2016 was a bust universally. Especially with Trump, aka ‘Cheetos Man’ as the U.S. President Elect. Yuck. You can still find some cheer at the upcoming Krampus Holiday Fair.
