The event is being put together by the newly formed Paper Rock Scissors Collective. You can check out the FB invite here, and check out the FB page for future PRS events there.

This fair got a bit of press from QNC.com

I’ve created some one of a kind tree ornaments exclusively for this fair.

These other ornaments I’ve created will also be available for purchase. Not many of the Krampus ornaments left, so grab them while you can. The same goes for the David Bowie ornament. My comics and greeting cards will also be available for purchase, in particular, my  popular Krampus card.

My comics and greeting cards will also be available for purchase, in particular, my  popular Krampus card.

Over time I’ve dabbled in handmade crafts, such as with jewelry, hair clips and such. Just never did the craft market thing, despite its popularity within the past few years.

Costume jewelry. Created summer 2014. 

In late 2014 I took the jump into making greeting cards, starting with Krampus. That went over pretty well, so in 2015, I expanded not just with designing other greeting card designs but creating handcrafted Krampus ornaments.

As you can guess, I’m expanding the greeting cards and ornaments even further. This year there’s going to be a bit more variety with the Krampus ornaments, and possibly creating new designs, as with one for David Bowie.

Okay, so 2016 was technically a crappy year. Personally it wasn’t bad for me, but in general let’s just say it sucked. So perhaps these new items might bring some much needed cheer.

If you’re interested in ordering any of the items: greeting cards are $3.00. Ornaments start at $3.00, but most of them are $5.00 and up. Not including S&H, which is an additional $3.00 (unless it’s international). PayPay accepted online. Send me an email to order, and to calculate S&H.

Below are photos to give you an ideal of what I’ve made. More forthcoming. In addition to these new items, I’ve also whipped up a new batch of the red glitter Krampus ornaments. These will be available both online and in future comic cons. The next comic con coming up is a local one. Catland’s Crimson Hand Comic Arts on Saturday Dec. 3rd, in Bushwich, Brooklyn. Free admission starting at 1pm.

David Bowie from Aladdin Sane era. Greeting card by Michele Witchipoo. July 2016.

The current favorite is my Bowie card. Based on the Aladdin Sane era.

For those into classic film stars, here’s one of Elizabeth Taylor. Besides, Marilyn Monroe has been done too many times.

New greeting cards from WitchesBrewPress, created and designed by Michele Witchipoo. July 2016. Available for purchase now. 

All greeting cards come with an envelope and cellophane wrapping. The cards are blank inside, because I discovered people prefer to write their own messages. Each card is $4.25 which includes S&H. It’s $3.00 if brought in person at one of my comic con/art appearances. (The additional $1.25 is to cover shipping and PayPal costs) If you can’t wait for the website store to update, you can always send me payment online via PayPal. Just specify which card you want, and send the payment to PsychoBunnyComix@aol.com

Previous greeting card designs are still available. Steampunk Cthulhu and Krampus are the two most popular. Next on arrival should be Prince and assorted holiday designs. Most likely Halloween, Christmas and Winter Solstice. The Valentine cards such as Lemmy Kilmister and Wendy O Williams are still available. The Lemmy/Wendy one was going to be limited edition, but they’ve proven popular so they stayed.

The new cards will make their debut this Sunday at the East Hampton Comic Extravaganza. You can also catch me in Boston in October. Details forthcoming.

Since my Krampus cards did so well, I decided to put out other greetings.

My line of greeting cards: Steampunk Cthulhu, Krampus, and a Lemmy/Wendy O Valentine. Designs/illustrations by Michele Witchipoo. 2016.

For the time being, my Etsy shop is closed, but you can still order my handmade cards. So far most people who have ordered from me have been pleased. The cards are $2.00 a piece, and shipping is an additional $1.00. If you’re ordering more than two, then S&H is $2.oo and up, depending on how many cards one orders. All cards come with envelopes and cellophane wrapping. Cards are also blank inside for more versatility.

‘Cosmic Birthday’ greeting card. Design/illustration by Michele Witchipoo. 2016.

If you’re interested, you can always email me: Witchipoo@witchesbrewpress.net or you can email the payment to PsychoBunnyComix@aol.com, specifying what card you’re ordering. You will get your order in a promptly manner.

Right now the hot item seems to be the Lemmy Kilmister and Wendy O Williams valentine card. It’s based on the time they did a duet together with the Tammy Wynette song “Stand By Your Man.” It’s in tribute to Lemmy, otherwise known as the founder and vocalist for Motorhead, who recently passed away. Also in memorandum for Wendy O Williams, best known for The Plasmatics. Below is a very rough draft of that design. There’s two versions. One with the words ‘For My Valentine’ and one without any text at all. If you’re interested in ordering this card, I do suggest ordering this ASAP in time for February 14th. You will not be disappointed.

If these cards do well, quite possibly I will go with other designs such as old school Goth, vintage New Wave/Post-Punk, other classic Punk/Metal icons, witch/pagan/occult designs, cult film characters, and other subculture subject matter.

Can’t recall the exact time I started making homemade greeting cards. Most of the time I’ve made cards like these for friends. Here’s a few photos.

Handmade greeting card with Phillip K. Dick quote inside. Card, design and drawing done by Michele Witchipoo. Circa 2012.

Handmade greeting card with Phillip K. Dick quote inside. Card, design and drawing done by Michele Witchipoo. Circa 2012.

Above is a photo of a card made sometime around 2012. I’m trying to remember who I made this one for. While the recipient’s name escapes me (perhaps for a good reason), I can tell what I can recall. The drawing was done in either watercolor or gouache along with ink. Enclosed is a Phillip K. Dick quote. The card stock itself was left over from an art project.

Below may or may not be the same card as the one above. This might’ve been created during my blue hair phase two years ago.
