Catching up with blog posts that should’ve been online last week. Here I contributed once again to the Sketch Lottery site. That week’s character was the best known bounty hunter in the Star War universe, Boba Fett.

On September 8th, 1966, fifty years ago Star Trek debuted on U.S. television. Star Trek’s cultural impact has surpassed generations.

To commemorate this occasion, Psycho Bunny traveled to where no man has gone before…most likely his apartment…

Before Sandy came along and made everything rather messy.

Before the mess of Hurricane Sandy and the U.S. Presidential elections, there was the seventh annual New York Comic Con. The NYCC took place at its’ usual spot at the Jacob Javits Center. From 2006 onwards, the NYCC has become the second largest comicbook convention in the United States. It’s second only to the infamous motherload of them all, the San Diego Comic Con.

In 2010, I had a small table at the NYCC over in the Artist Alley section. Perhaps one day I’ll have another table again. For now I’m content walking around with a professional badge around my neck, observing everything.

Mainstream comic book conventions are good for highlighting current pop culture trends. As mentioned in my previous post, Doctor Who and The Avengers were huge among costumers this year.

In the Doctor Who catagory, you had both genders doing the Matt Smith look, complete with fez hats. There were a few David Tennants as well. I did spot someone dressed as the fifth doctor, and one lone  Tom Baker clone. Even children got in on the act.

There was a small collective of Harry Potter fans. Of course, no comicbook con is complete without people dressing like their favorite characters. For example, I saw a Spiderman with a pot belly, a Venom with a sizable crotch bulge, one Rorschach, a few Jokers from The Dark Knight era, a few Harlequins, plenty of Deadpools, Blackcats, and who can forget Star Wars. My faith in humanity was briefly ignited for one second thanks to a couple dressed like Dr. Frankfurter from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Wanna smell like a member of The Avengers?
That’s actually kind of scary…considering
you’re in battle inside sweaty metal armor all day.

This Friday, I will have two space related paintings exhibited at the Hi-5 bar and gallery. The two paintings will be shown for a month, or until further notice. It’s part of a ‘Space Porn’ theme, along with other artists. My paintings are more for a PG-13 crowd, or at least one of them. Guess I’ve toned it down somewhat.

Here’s one of the better paintings:

Robot Stripper.
Materials: Acrylic and glitter.
Date: July 2012.
Artist: Michele Witchipoo.

I really like this particular work a lot, and it looks like I already have a buyer. If you’re interested in getting a commission from me, either with drawing, illustration or painting, just email me: Witchipoo@witchesbrewpress.net

Hope you enjoy this piece as much as I do. See everyone later.

‘There are other worlds, similar to ours but different in many respects. They may be alien worlds in galaxies far away, worlds in which humanity has met its dreadful end, worlds that already exist within our future. The possibilities stretch only as far as the imagination. But, no matter where, when or how these worlds exist, they are all one thing…WORLDS BEYOND.’

I’ve done two illustrations for this quasi-prose anthology book ‘Worlds Beyond’ published by CAG (Comicbook Artist Guild). The two stories: Sci-Fi short ‘Cult Movie’ written by Scott Sheaffer and the zombie piece, ‘Bad Reception’ by Lindsay Kraemer.

Oh yeah, and an error was made on my bio. It slipped past the editor’s eye. Somehow instead of ‘native’ I’m a ‘naive’ New Yorker. Hey, at least my artwork looks good. Hopefully this will be corrected soon.
