This past weekend, I had a table selling my comics at WinterCon 2015. Out of all the comics cons I’ve done, WinterCon had to been the most swankest, for it took place inside Resorts World Casino.

Over the two days I immediately sold out of my handmade Krampus ornaments, sold Krampus greeting cards, sold a few of my comics, and towards the last hour and a half, did a commission.

As mentioned before, out of the blue someone dropped by my table requesting a commission. My work is on the right.

Among one of the lessons learned over the weekend – don’t skimp on bringing merchandise for your table. My Krampus tree ornaments sold within the first hour, leaving me with just a sign. No worries. More will be made, and for sale at the Kinda Punky Flea Market in Brooklyn Dec. 20th, and in my Etsy store. So keep on checking my shop for updates.

What’s up with him?

Eddie Murphy's eyes....on Sketch Lottery. Character of the week was Prince Akeem from the 80s film "Coming To America." Sketch by Michele Witchipoo Nov. 2014

Eddie Murphy’s eyes….on Sketch Lottery. Character of the week was Prince Akeem from the 80s film “Coming To America.” Sketch by Michele Witchipoo Nov. 2014

A week late, but the Sketch Lottery character was Prince Akeem from the 1988 film Coming To America.’ For those who don’t know, comedian Eddie Murphy portrays Prince Akeem, a rich African prince in search of a bride. He goes to America to find the woman of his dreams, which lands him right in NYC boro of Queens.

As a side note. The scenes where Prince Akeem was working in McDowell’s were filmed on location at a local fast food restaurant. It was Wendy’s, located on Queens Boulevard, in Elmhurst, Queens. My mother used to pass by this Wendy’s during her work commute.

Years later, I moved to an area which wasn’t that far from Elmhurst. The Wendy’s location was still there. Unfortunately, that Wendy’s was known as one of the worse Wendy’s ever. In 2013, it was torn down. Below are a few online articles relating to the former business.

The sketch I did was based on the scene where Akeem and his personal assistant/best friend Sammi hit the club in search of a bride.

Not the best work I’ve done, but regardless. Enjoy my contribution on Sketch Lottery. Don’t forget to check out work by the other artists as well.

FYI – The film poster for ‘Coming To America’ was drawn by Drew Struzan.
