It’s pretty late in the holiday season, but here’s an Etsy update.
Since trying Etsy again second time around, I’ve gotten encouragement and support. Sold out of Psycho Bunny issue 3.5. Thanks to Covid19, it’s going to be a while before I can reprint that comic again. Instead I focused on making Christmas tree ornaments. All the illustrations were drawn by me, Michele Witchipoo. Below are a few examples.
Psycho Bunny thought it was more appropriate for 2016.
Introducing the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week. The holiday edition.
Hope everyone had a good holiday season so far. Thanks to the many people who supported me and my comics, illustrations and other work this year.
The usual plugs: Don’t forget to hit “like” for both Facebook pages. There’s one for Psycho Bunny Comix and one for my other illustration work WitchesBrewPress. Psycho Bunny is also on Twitter. Soon I’ll revamp my website for an updated shop menu. The shop will be updated, to make ordering comics easier. Stay tuned.
It was just only a few weeks ago that some folks were getting upset over these red Starbucks cups. Now we have bigger things to worry about.
Anyway, while some were complaining about ‘the war on Christmas’, Psycho Bunny has other plans…
As usual I’m going to mention about getting your own copy of Psycho Bunny through any of these two channels…there’s my website and my Etsy store. Psycho Bunny even has his own page on Facebook. Until next time!
Now that the holidays are nearly over, I took a look at the Christmas tree. Now I haven’t considered myself ‘Christian’ for over fifteen years. The origins of the Christmas tree actually has pre-Christian roots, pardon the pun. Regardless, the tree put out for nostalgia and tradition.
As I get older, I still cannot fathom chopping down live trees for only a few weeks consumption. The smell of fresh pine might be nice. A huge bushy tree certainly looks impressive in your house. However, I personally see getting a live tree a waste of money. Not only is it frivolous, but it doesn’t look so pretty when discarded live trees are thrown out on the sidewalk curb. The only good thing in getting a live tree is that it gives people jobs.
The faker the tree, the better. I like it when Christmas trees have artificial colors. Blue, silver, white, gold. Why? Why not?
Anyway, in the past, I’ve enjoyed decorating Xmas trees. This year I noticed something different. When you take one of those pre-lighted trees, don’t put any decorations on it, and just plug it in…it looks fine by itself. All you have to do it put an angel or a star on top and – ta dah – you’re done.
Maybe it was the result of some of the art classes I’ve taken, where you’re taught the ‘less is more’ aesthetic. There’s the desire to simplify life, not embrace so much clutter. Perhaps I just really didn’t want to go through the hassle of physically taking out the ornaments, only to put them away a few weeks later. Whatever it was…perhaps one can take this as a sign to look past life’s distractions. Instead focus at what’s really important.
Either that, or I’ve realized after all this time, a lot of Xmas decor is just gaudy.
Above is the illustration done in watercolor and gouache, done completely by freehand. No pencil work, just straight from the brush.
Oh, and btw…I always found that song “Feed The Tree” by Belly to be annoying.
The holidays are upon us once again. What better time to show a Krampus pencil sketch:
Originally I was going to draw the Krampus figure, then ink. As I went along, just kind of liked how the pencil work was coming out. So for now, I’ll keep it as a pencil sketch.
For those who don’t know what Krampus is all about, or for those too lazy to Google…I’ll leave you with a few links. I’ll do this so you won’t have to. Consider that my holiday gift for you, my readers.
