Right before MoCCA Art Fest 2011, comicbook artist and inker Peter Palmiotti (he’s worked for Marvel, DC, and many other publishing companies; both major as well as small press) sent me a message on Facebook. Think it was Facebook, or an email, can’t remember which. Anyhow, he had an idea for a quickie collaboration. Peter kindly asked if I could do a pencil sketch, in which he would then ink in. I agreed.
If you’ve read some of my earlier blog posts a few weeks back, (https://witchesbrewpress.wordpress.com/2011/04/11/mocca-art-fest-2011/) I did the pencil sketch right after I had spent 24-28 putting together a Psycho Bunny mini-issue. Despite major sleep deprivation, I was on a drawing roll. To quote myself, I was a mean, not-so-lean sketching machine. A few hours later, Peter drops by my table. We’ve been internet buddies for quite some time now. It was on his birthday that we finally met, even if it was only for a few minutes.
Here’s the pencil sketch before inking. Photo taken with my iPhone:
This past weekend saw the release of the Psycho Bunny mini-issue #3.25.
It almost didn’t come out. Hence, I sacrificed sleep to make sure I would have the latest Psycho Bunny out in time for MoCCA Art Fest 2011. By 12am I was riding the subway to Manhattan. By 2am I was in some 24 hour copy/printing place near Times Square. By the time the first copy was made, it was 3am in the morning. By the time I arrived back home in Queens, it was 4am. Three hours sleep wasn’t nearly enough, for I had to set up at MoCCA before doors open, which was 11am.
Not that anyone was lining up to purchase the latest copy of Psycho Bunny, but still…was it worth sleep deprivation? Absolutely!
I’d like to think I adhere to deadlines, especially my own. So even though I was kinda spaced out at MoCCA, it was totally worth it in order to present new material. Besides, in Chinese astrology, it’s currently in the year of the rabbit. Since I hadn’t done anything with Psycho Bunny since 2008, it was time for a new issue.
Psycho Bunny mini issue # 3.25 debuted at the MoCCA Art Fest 2011 this past weekend. You can also order your own copy by sending $2.00 plus $1.00 S&H via PayPal to PsychoBunnyComix@aol.com or Witchipoo@witchesbrewpress.net.
Okay, this is the deal. I’m going to have a small table at the MoCCA Art Fest 2011. (This weekend, tomorrow & Sunday) Whether or not I will have the latest mini-issue of Psycho Bunny ready, remains to be seen. Regardless, come by my table, say hi, and buy some of my artwork!
Haven’t done a Psycho Bunny story in quite some time. Hopefully I’ll have a mini-issue ready for the Welcome To My Nightmare V show this upcoming Saturday. If not, then perhaps MoCCA Art Fest 2011 (Happening April 9-10).
Until then, here’s a short Psycho Bunny story. This one is slightly different, I colored the page using Photoshop. Also, most of the page couldn’t fit on the scanner. So that’s why it looks as if one side has been cut off.
Speaking of which, the media hoopla about Charlie Sheen has died down a bit. If there was one good thing about the Japanese Tsunami, it was that. For those who can’t get enough of Charlie Sheen…or Charlie Jesus Christ Sheen, here’s this. Enjoy.
