The opening party at MF Gallery went so well, there’s going to be a closing party on August 30th. There will a screening of the classic cult film. Cosplay of all your favorite Rocky Horror Picture Show characters is encouraged. Of course there’s the art. It’s a group art show, in tribute to the Rocky Horror Picture Show itself. So if you missed it the first time around, here’s your second chance!

A few weeks back, I caught a free show at Irving Plaza. The headliner was neo-Rockabily singer Robert Gordon. Originally part of the early NYC Punk movement, around the late ’70s he embraced his influences, turning to Rockabilly. Having worked with musicians such as Link Wray and Chris Spedding, his vocals took everyone back to a time when Elvis was actually cool. He was ahead of such retro rockers such as The Stray Cats (which as of this blog posting, is currently on a reunion tour.) While The Cramps pushed the envelope with it’s sinister psychobilly overtones, Robert Gordon stayed true to his roots.

Ad for his album on RCA records. Rockabilly singer Robert Gordon during the early part of his career.

In the past I’ve attending a few Rockabilly events, but not often enough. It was scattered throughout the years, such as attending shows in San Francisco, Connecticut, and recently a few years back at NYC’s Otto Shrunken Head.

If you’re curious about what Gordon sounds like these days, check out the footage from his gig at Irving Plaza, July 1st, 2019. Below is the song that he opened with, “Someday, Someway.” It was later covered by Marshall Crenshaw.

Which leads to the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week. Psycho Bunny’s own version of Rock Billy Boogie:

Star Wars probably heard by now. British actor Peter Mayhew, who portrayed the original Chewbacca, passed away. He was just weeks away from his 75th birthday.

Here’s something loosely based on the Rider-Waite/Pamela Coleman Smith tarot deck. Most tarot decks follow this system, unless one uses the Thoth/Crowley deck, or various oracles, gypsy cards, etc. Drawn in pencil and ink, colored in watercolor. Two types of watercolor was used. Shimmer/glitter and regular watercolor.

The scan, done at a low dpi didn’t do the illustration justice. Doesn’t show the details nor the depth of the colors. Below is a photo of the illustration itself:

The other photo is a scan with the fore mentioned low dpi normally used for web and other devices.

At this point, the only left for this illustration is a frame, for exhibiting. There could be the rare exception of selling the original. Once it’s framed, of course.

Recently I discovered that Sketch Lottery is no more. So I’m re-posting my Sketch Lottery’s “greatest hits.” Here’s a mash-up of SpongeBob doing Clockwork Orange. Originally done back in 2017.

Here’s an illustration done only a few days ago. Originally was going to hand paint in watercolor, but I was a little too tired to move myself to the studio. The result looks like a cross between a tarot card and old comic book art. Still have the original black and white ink drawing. In case you haven’t figured it out, Mortem is the Latin word for death.
