Now that Easter, Spring Equinox, and all other holidays are wrapping up, it’s time for a fresh Psycho Bunny sketch of the week. Behold, it is Psycho Bunny that has risen. Fair warning though. With this week’s sketch, only art history students and Post-Punk/Traditional Goth fans will get the joke.

As I was pondering what to do for the next sketch, Google reminded me that it was the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus art movement. During its peak, the Bauhaus movement was revolutionary with concepts of design, architecture and art. Unfortunately, when the Nazis rose to power, the Bauhaus school was one of the first causalities. There was no room for Bauhaus ideology within Nazi framework. Unrelated was Hugo Boss, who designed the Nazi uniforms. Yes, that high-end designer. Back to Bauhaus. After the art school’s closure, various students went global, spreading its influence worldwide. Its influence still lingers in 2019.

Unless you’re a fan of ’80s Alternative, which throws you into the Post-Punk category. We’re talking about that classic Goth band Bauhaus. Bauhaus is most well known for the song ‘Bela Lugosi Is Dead.’ Later on, the lead singer Peter Murphy went on to have a solo career, with Dali’s Car in-between. The other members formed Tones On Tail, then Love and Rockets. The band Love and Rockets is not to be confused with the comic by Los Hernandez Bros.

Most recently, Bauhaus, Tones On Tail, and Love and Rockets member David J did a signing at NYC’s Rough Trade, during Record Day 2019. More about Record Day 2019 and the Wax Trax event in another blog post.

Meantime, I will be at two comic cons in June. Details forthcoming.

As a child I wasn’t into celebrating Easter all that much. Just remember new outfits and sometimes the family would walk through Central Park. I got Easter baskets complete with a chocolate bunny.

Another Instagram photo. Red right hand bunny. Must be a Nick Cave fan. Bad joke. Photo by Michele Witchipoo, March 2013.

March 2013. It seems as if everyone was making a big deal about various Spring holidays more than usual. Probably because it just seemed like the longest Winter ever. Even I got tired of the Frost Giants. Apparently The Hrimpursar had overstayed their welcome.

This year I had dinner with my parents. Now I realize that I was raised as an only child within a dysfunctional family. Which sorta explains my perspective and sense of humor. Yet surprisingly it was nice for a change. I showed up solo to dinner. My mother gave me my birthday presents along with parental warmth. My father didn’t get on my case for a change. Afterwards both me and my mom watched of all things this feminist documentary. It was broadcasting on some public television station. When I was growing up, I cannot recall my mother embracing any type of feminist concepts. Odd, but another pleasant surprise. Then mom asked me if I ever watched that CBS reality show ‘The Amazing Race.’ It was then I realized my mother always liked to travel.

After dinner I did a quick sketch of my mother. Photo from when she was either in her late teens or early twenties.

In her single life she was doing exactly that. During the late 1960s, my mother arrived on the U.S. shores looking for work as a nanny. Originally she planned to head back to Liverpool, England, but not before she had a taste of the American life. Then one night she decided to check out the Roseland Ballroom. That visit changed her life. She met a man who would known as my father. He convinced her not to go back to the U.K. and stay with him. Then they spawned me and completely ruined everything.

I joke. Well sort of. They’re still together after all this time. Along the way they slowly accepted my ever changing tastes in music, hair colors and a love of all things dark. Do I ever want to be like them? Hmm…yes and no. My mother will always have a kind, compassionate heart. She can never be as incorrigible as me. We’re both cat lovers. Guess it runs in the family.

A friend of Psycho Bunny? Must be tough hiding all those eggs. At least he goes top shelf. Found this photo on Facebook. Best bunny pic of the year. Photographer unknown.

Headed back home. Bunny hopping time was over. Again, it just seemed to be as if everyone was celebrating some sort of spring holiday. Passover, Spring Equinox, Ostara, Easter, eating chocolate bunny day, any other holiday I missed, take your pick. Bunnies had a resurgence. Especially with memes being uploaded on Facebook. For the first time ever, I got sick of anything hare related. Bunnies, rabbits, etc. Bleh. The next day I did this watercolor piece:

Here I am with the shimmery glitter watercolors again. Of course you can’t tell that it’s glitter watercolor due to the scan. Once again. Anyway, I combined two of the spring holidays here. Easter and Beltane. Easter and Beltane really have nothing to do with each other, except for the pastel colors. Yet I missed Ostara and Spring Equinox. So I figured I would do a nod to Easter while waiting for Walpurgisnacht.

Completed this painting last night. Based on a tattoo I saw in a photograph:

Rabbit playing the bodhran drum. Painting by Michele Witchipoo Oct. 2012. Acrylic and glitter on canvas.

Did the background last month with acrylic and glitter. Didn’t know which direction to go until recently. It’s a pity the scan doesn’t show the true beauty of this piece.

From what I understand, this tattoo is based on an ancient English illustration going back 500 years. It’s a rabbit playing a Celtic instrument called the bodhran. Enjoy.

UPDATE: Just found out that the tattoo is actually a hare playing the tabor. Oops.

UPDATE 1/22/2013: This painting has now been sold.
