This past Saturday was March 17th. Otherwise known as St. Patrick’s Day. Just learned about another saint who shares the same day as St. Paddy. She’s Saint Gertrude of Nivelles. She’s the patron saint of cats, travelers and the mentally ill.

Now I’m not Catholic. I’m more informed about Pagan deities than Catholic Saints. However when it comes to spirituality, everything connects. In fact, saints are often used for decoys for various deities in other belief systems. That’s a whole other subject itself.

This saint is not to be confused with another saint of the same name, Saint Gertrude The Great, who was a German Benedictine, mystic, and theologian. This particular Saint Gertrude of Nivelles has a different story. Recently her name has been spread on the Internet as the saint of felines. So next you’re spending quality time with your kitty, give Saint Gertrude a little thanks.

Usually I post a new sketch every Monday. This week I’ve been late.


To make up for this, I did not only one, but three sketches. The last sketch will be posted on time next Monday. Promise.

Onto the second sketch. Just commenting on a holiday I’m not particularly fond of. Spoken about this before. Not going to bore with my disdain. I’ll let the sketch speak of itself.


So enjoy your amateur drinking day, and remember that there were never any snakes in Ireland.

If that didn’t piss you off, you can always follow me on other social media. Facebook: Psycho Bunny comix, Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress, and my hobby, taking photos while riding NYC transit called Wildlife On The MTA. There’s also Twitter for myself, and for Psycho Bunny. There is something called Tumblr. Last, there’s always my Instagram account, Witchipoo Art.

So last night the Oscars was broadcast last night on American TV.

When I was a child, the Oscars was everything. Loved the pomp and circumstance, the red carpet gowns, the suspense, the thrill of winning an award, etc. Got so wrapped up in the Hollywood fantasy. It was a world me and you could never touch, but despite this, it symbolized that dreams do come true.


I couldn’t care less.

Perhaps it’s due to the declining quality of American mainstream releases. Don’t get me wrong. I still love the cinema. The ritual of going to the actual theater still is more appealing than catching a film a year later on Netflix. Unfortunately the cons are outweighing the pros. Ticket prices in NYC are so expensive. My latest preference is the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn. If you get up at the crack of dawn, you can catch an early matinee in Times Square. With cheap matinee tickets comes the risk bringing home bed bugs. No thank you.

There’s a reason why people “Netflix and chill.”

As I’ve become much more selective in where I purchase my film tickets, something else happened to me recently. On Facebook I had posted an article relating to #metoo. Somehow a certain film director’s mother who just happened to be on my Facebook friend list became furious that I had re-posted the article. She blasted me online. A case of shooting the messenger rather than the source. When she asked me who was I, my response was something like ‘I don’t know – you were the one who had sent me the friends request a few months ago…you should know.’ Thus I was promptly blocked.


So after a few laughs, we looked up her name on IMDb. Turns out she was the mother of a famous film director. More incredibly, I was a fan of that particular director. Now every time I come across one of his films, I’m going to think about that exchange with his mom. ‘Tis a small world after all. That was some straight up TMZ shit right there.


Anyway. Here’s the Psycho Bunny sketch of The Week.

So if you want to curse me out, which I kind of like, don’t recommend, you can go to either one of my two Facebook pages – Psycho Bunny and Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress. There’s Twitter, my own account and Psycho Bunny. There’s also Tumblr and Instagram. Eventually I will have to fix my website so you can all order my comics and pretend I’m not such an unknown cartoonist. At least give me the illusion. Cheers.

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.

This was something originally started in late 2016. Halfway through, some events happened that I had to put this on hold. Then in very late 2017, discovered this sketch. Finally finished it in 2018. When Valentine’s Day rolled around this year, I misplaced the original piece. It was supposed to be hand colored with watercolor paint. Despite purchasing my first Wacom in late 2017, I went ahead and digitally colored in a way that a graphic designer professor would cringe.

Anatomical heart artwork has become a tiny bit popular over the past few years. Here’s my take on it. It’s intention was for a flyer advertising a local craft fair. The craft fair and the collective was never meant to be.

The background was influenced by vintage flower patterns.
