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.

Occasionally I’ll send drawings to Sketch Lottery. Recently that site had a special anniversary edition, where you can draw any subject from the past character list. It gave me a chance to draw two of my favorite comic book characters, Buddy Bradley and Tank Girl.

The first one submitted was actually from my early childhood. Grover from Sesame Street. This time I threw in a Rockabilly twist.

The second one was Buddy Bradley from Hate Magazine. Hate Magazine is a comic written and drawn by one of my top ten cartoonists, Peter Bagge. Buddy started as disgruntled member of a dysfunctional family. Later Buddy moved to Seattle getting caught up in the burgeoning late ’80s/early ’90s Grunge scene. Eventually Buddy moved back to his hometown in New Jersey where he more or less matured. After marrying his neurotic girlfriend Lisa, he settled down with a family while maintaining his own business. I took the ’90s Grunge Buddy, making him into a 2017 Hipster Buddy. The type that you can find in a Bushwick watering hole like The Cobra Club.

Number three was a show I watched on and off during the early 2000s. If you remember Aqua Teen Hunger Force, then you remember Meatwad. Did the show itself make any sense? Of course not, but maybe it wasn’t supposed to.

Here you can see the Aqua team on a vintage valentine design. Like the type you used to give to your classmates straight out of the box brought from the drug store. Sometimes I think that was more fun than the later adult valentines.

Last one up is Tank Girl. Back in the early ’90s, I was introduced to Tank Girl by my UK friend Jason. He took a chance and mailed me a copy. Too bad the movie version tanked, but that’s a different story. Still not as bad as 1995’s Judge Dredd. Where I sat in a theater as the entire audience heckled the film. Good times.

Personally I could’ve done a better job with this sketch. It was late but I was pushing myself to draw Tank Girl before the deadline. Will have to do another version if Sketch Lottery has another anniversary edition.

As seen on Sketch Lottery. Introducing my extremely quick sketch of the Fourth Doctor, also known as British actor Tom Baker.

Quick drawing of Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and his best known companion, Sarah Jane. Of course, daleks are never satisfied. Drawn by Michele Witchipoo, Nov. 2015 for Sketch Lottery. Pen and ink.

I have a particular fondness for the Fourth Doctor. Growing up during the early 1980s, I discovered Doctor Who by syndication. It was broadcast on a local NYC television station, WOR, which was channel nine on the dial. It’s Saturday early afternoon slot was right before wrestling.

For the hell of it, I’ll slap on this video:

For months watching Doctor Who became my weekend ritual, watching the Fourth Doctor and his companion Sarah Jane Smith on their various adventures. Not much was known back about Doctor Who. I didn’t know that Doctors regenerate, with companions that come and go. So when Sarah Jane left, I was heartbroken. Leela just wasn’t the same. Foolish, I know. Thus stories of Time Lords was eventually dropped along with those tacky wrestling matches that followed afterwards. Besides, music was taking over. It was the age of New Wave and ’80s Pop. Joan Jett, The Go-Go’s, and later Culture Club with Boy George captured my imagination. After all, I was only 13 years old.

Of course years later, Doctor Who finally broke out of PBS obscurity. If you follow pop culture, you probably know the rest. As they say, you never forget your first Doctor. While I’m fond of the Tenth Doctor, portrayed by David Tennant, my favorite still remains the Fourth, as defined by Tom Baker.

Anyway, check out my piece on Sketch Lottery, and of course, don’t forget to check out the other artists. I’ll leave you with another WOR station identification clip.
