Taking a break looking back on MICE 2016 I & MICE 2016 II. This summer from June 1st to August 31st, Sketch Lottery is doing a free for all. This means anyone can submit from the character list. Usually you have to wait until a character is chosen weekly. Since this give me time to sketch any characters previously missed, I chose Hagar The Horrible.

Michele Witchipoo’s rendition of Hagar The Horrible with some Norse/Odin symbolism thrown in. Originally done for Sketch Lottery, June 2018. 

Hagar was put in Odin‘s place, while his buddy Lucky Eddie was put into Loki‘s position.

Where are my manners? Last week was the birthday of Susan Janet Ballon, best known to the world as Siouxsie Sioux. She turned 61 on May 27th.

Siouxsie and The Banshees was my favorite band during my high school years. Still one of my all time choices actually. Over the years I’ve expanded my music tastes. The other day I played something haven’t listened to in aeons. It was Kiss In The Dreamhouse, their 5th studio album, originally released back in 1982.

Hardcore fans know about her British television special titled Play At Home, featuring Robert Smith from The Cure. The special was broadcast around the same time as the Kiss In The Dreamhouse album was released.

Again, haven’t drawn her in quite some time. Here’s an illustration started last week. Completed the art tonight, ripe for uploading. Haven’t decided whether to color the piece with watercolor. While I’m deciding, some filters will do nicely.

Completed this sketch last week but didn’t get a chance to post until today. Just as well, spring finally arrived over in my neck of the woods.

Introducing the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for May 13th, 2018.

Other news? Saw The Melvins live over at Warsaw in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. They did not disappoint. Redd Kross member Steven McDonald joined the band a few years back. Haven’t thought about Redd Kross in years. Saw that band open for a reunited Dead Boys back in the late ’80s. Stiv Bators was so burnt out, Dead Boys barely made it through their set. Not interested in the latest Dead Boys reincarnation. Besides. Have some current items to work on. My three month ‘vacation’ is over. Eventually I’ll fix my website.

Don’t have much time today, so here’s the usual social media hints:

On Facebook there’s pages for Psycho Bunny and for Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress. On Twitter there’s my own account, and one for Psycho Bunny. World Ov Witchipoo is my Tumblr one. On Instagram there’s WitchipooArt. Got some cool stuff on RedBubble, including cute summer dress featuring my designs. See everyone soon.

Here’s the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week. Drawn while listening to the album Machine Gun Etiquette by the UK band The Damned. (Although The Damned did have a Goth period during their long career.)

The Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for Monday, April 15th, 2018. Based on the comic written and drawn by Michele Witchipoo on her own imprint, WitchesBrewPress.

Over the weekend, a few approached me inquiring if I was ever going to work on another Psycho Bunny comic. It even came up on Sunday while having dinner with a friend at my new favorite eatery, Onderdonk and Sons because they make killer burgers. The burgers come in both vegetarian and meat varieties, but getting back to Psycho Bunny. Will there be another issue? That’s a good question. Good news is yes, I do have a few stories in the works, so please be patient. In the meantime, I am available for commissions, so don’t be shy.

As some await for the next issue with baited breath (an exaggeration), there all these lovely social media account you can check out for the latest updates.

On Facebook there’s pages for Psycho Bunny and for Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress. On Twitter there’s my own account, and one for Psycho Bunny. World Ov Witchipoo is my Tumblr one. On Instagram there’s WitchipooArt. Got some cool stuff on RedBubble, so buy my work. That way I can settle my overpriced internet bill. Until I sign up for a cheaper company that won’t rip me off. Until next time ladies and germs.

A few years back I’ve mentioned Brion Gysin on this blog. Realized that having been a fan of both William Burroughs and Gysin, I’ve never done a portrait of either person.

Today I did this quick sketch of both gentlemen, done in pen and Japanese black sumi ink. If you draw by hand, you haven’t lived until you’ve worked with sumi ink.

Did a few sketches for this year’s Inktober. Just haven’t gotten around to posting them. Here’s a quick one. Guess it was inspired by Pennywise, and the current success of the film It.

This wasn’t my first Inktober sketch, but it’s one of the better ones. Now back to sketching.

Lately been nostalgic for anything early New Wave and Post Punk. I’ve always been a firm believer in moving forward, but when it comes to my musical tastes, that’s a different story. No matter how many times I check out current music, in the end I always go back to anything between the years 1965 to 2007. Particularly anything underground from the ’80s.

A few weeks ago I was checking out episodes of the Los Angles based program New Wave Theater, which now can be seen on the streaming channel Night Flight. (Night Flight was also a late night program on the USA Network during the ’80s). So this probably was probably the basis of the latest Psycho Bunny sketch for Monday, June 26th, 2017.
