Been a while since I’ve contributed to Sketch Lottery. When this week’s subject was Hello Kitty, who could resist?
Here’s Hello Kitty as Lizzie Borden.
You check out the full sketch here.

This week I decided to do a quick Psycho Bunny sketch in watercolor. Also bring in a character not used in a while – Psycho Bunny’s mother.
So not only am I running out of my glitter watercolor supply, but it seems as if Photoshop didn’t pick up on the colors too well. Eh. What can you do.
Here’s both versions.

Two of my illustrations have been published by Feral House for their coloring book series. One for David Bowie, and the other for Lemmy Kilmister. Both of these new releases are available for purchase now from the website.
For the Lemmy submission, I including Wendy O Williams from The Plasmatics. Lemmy and Wendy did a duet together, a cover of ‘Stand By Your Man.’ The Bowie one I’ve simply titled ‘Saint Bowie.’
I’ve been a fan of Feral House publishing for years. Have quite a number of FH books in my collection. So to get into this book series means a great deal to me. So if you’re a fan of either musicians or rather icons, you might want to get these books.

Overwhelmed by bills? Getting financially assaulted?
Introducing the Psycho Bunny pic of the week:
Saw this meme as seen below last week. After hearing about a friend complaining regarding bills, I did my own spin on it.

This just in. I will be participating in the 2016 Bushwick Open Studios (BOS) event with the Ridgewood Artist Coalition (RAC) over at OUTPOST Artist Resources from October 1 – 15 2016, from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm. This will be a group art exhibit featuring many artists from the Ridgewood, Queens area of NYC, displaying work in various mediums.
Opening night details can be found on this OUTPOST page, from noon to 7 pm.
I’m especially pleased because I’ll be showing something fresh. This is part of a new series I’m working on. The series is still in process but I managed to get the first part in on time.
The new series is loosely based on Frank Herbert’s Dune. For a little over a year and half stone, I’ve been getting back into the science fiction genre. (In fact, the 50th anniversary of Star Trek happened this past Wednesday as of this posting.) Particularly those of a Dystopian nature. Dystopia is very fitting into these times, especially with current world and political events. Also, I think Dystopia forces us to confront some very uncomfortable truths about humanity through fiction. Many times Dystopian fiction is very disturbingly prophetic.
Despite some slight reservations I have about how the women are depicted in the Dune series, it’s still one of the best sci-fi stories of all time. My introduction to Dune came during my early ’80s adolescence. The film adaption finally came to the big screen, which I was lucky enough to catch during it’s original theatrical release. The film was produced by flashy producer Dino De Laurentiis and directed by art house fave David Lynch. It wasn’t the greatest film adaption, but at least it supplied some sort of visualization. It had enough impact upon me to buy the paperback at a local Queens drugstore, with the movie poster as the book cover. Years later gave this copy away, which I came to regret. Since then I’ve re-brought the novel at Topos Bookstore.
Enough details. What drew me back to Dune once again was through personal conversations, and it’s correspondence to magick. There’s a brilliant quote that’s pretty well known. It goes like this:
‘I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.’
You can apply this passage not only as an occultist, but also as any sort of creative. Whether you’re an artist, a writer, a musician, actor, etc. This can apply to life in general. In order to accomplish anything, one must get over, or break away from whatever holds the person back. You will never discover your true Will if you allow fear to overtake you.
Revisiting Dune the second time around, the characters that appealed to me the most were the Reverend Mothers. Otherwise known as the Bene Gesserit. The Bene Gesserit is a very powerful sisterhood that can be liken to witches. So I’ve gone back using symbolism such as alchemy and combined it with the likeness of the Reverend Mothers.
The above piece is for sale. If anyone wants to acquire, you can send me an email.
See you during Bushwick Open Studios.

Psycho Bunny is the founder, president and CEO of The Unemployment Appreciation Society. Just because he can’t hold down a job doesn’t mean he can’t wish you a pleasant Labor Day.

Earlier yesterday I was having a conversation about musician, composer and producer Giorgio Moroder. As of this posting he’s touring. (Although I’m going to see The Legendary Pink Dots instead. More my speed.) Which led me to do this Psycho Bunny sketch.
In Psycho Bunny’s mind, he’s a romeo on the dance floor. Everyone else just thinks he’s tacky.

Don’t forget. There’s the official Psycho Bunny Facebook page, and a separate Facebook page for my illustration work. You can also order Psycho Bunny comics through my website. I’ll be at MICE in Cambridge, MA selling my comics one weekend in October. Details coming later. Till next time.
