Here’s the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week. Drawn while listening to the album Machine Gun Etiquette by the UK band The Damned. (Although The Damned did have a Goth period during their long career.)

The Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for Monday, April 15th, 2018. Based on the comic written and drawn by Michele Witchipoo on her own imprint, WitchesBrewPress.

Over the weekend, a few approached me inquiring if I was ever going to work on another Psycho Bunny comic. It even came up on Sunday while having dinner with a friend at my new favorite eatery, Onderdonk and Sons because they make killer burgers. The burgers come in both vegetarian and meat varieties, but getting back to Psycho Bunny. Will there be another issue? That’s a good question. Good news is yes, I do have a few stories in the works, so please be patient. In the meantime, I am available for commissions, so don’t be shy.

As some await for the next issue with baited breath (an exaggeration), there all these lovely social media account you can check out for the latest updates.

On Facebook there’s pages for Psycho Bunny and for Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress. On Twitter there’s my own account, and one for Psycho Bunny. World Ov Witchipoo is my Tumblr one. On Instagram there’s WitchipooArt. Got some cool stuff on RedBubble, so buy my work. That way I can settle my overpriced internet bill. Until I sign up for a cheaper company that won’t rip me off. Until next time ladies and germs.

Sometime this week was my birthday. Not revealing the exact date, but this year’s celebration was lovely. I’m truly grateful to have friends who care for me deeply. This time I was taken out for some delicious Indian food, where we stuffed ourselves so silly, we could barely walk out. Afterwards I received a lot of kind birthday wishes and messages from all over. Let’s just say this all warmed up my little black heart.

It was one of the nicest birthdays I had in recent years. The other memorable birthday was when I arrived back in NYC in late 2007. The year 2008 was pretty significant, both professionally and personally. Especially after spending two years in sheer purgatory. In a way, it was a good thing I was back in the big bad rotten apple during 2008. Looking back I was very lucky to catch much of the old NYC before everything closed down, becoming ultra gentrified.

 One of my best friends, arranged a surprise gathering in honor of my birthday. We all met somewhere in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, in which we headed towards Double Down. Once inside Double Down we eventually took over the entire bar. This wasn’t planned. The rather spontaneous invasion was pretty wild. That kicked an entire week of me celebrating my birthday returning to New York. Think of it as the lost weekend extended. Don’t ask me what else happened that week. By the time my actual birthday came around, it was on Saturday and I was so completely hungover. Then  came the realization I was supposed to be at Stony Brook, Long Island. The occasion? Vending at a table then speaking on a panel for I-CON. We boarded the Long Island Railroad, regaining my composure in time for both the table and panel.

Rest assured, I’m professional most of the time. I-CON 27 went rather well, and then a small group of us headed for sushi somewhere in Nassau County.

Blast from the past. Me on Saturday April 5, 2008 at I-CON 27, Stony Brook University, Long Island, New York.

This year was no need for any sort of alcohol. The company, conversation and Indian food was good enough. Perhaps this is a sign of maturity. Somewhat. A bonus was receiving all these wonderful gifts, like jewelry, and a copy of Howard Chaykin’s The Divided States of Hysteria in collected graphic novel form.

Here’s a quick birthday sketch. Purposely done in garnish colors, because life can be a bizarre circus. Enjoy.

Last night I went to another concert. In the past few months I’ve been on a roll, going to live shows for Television, Front 242 and Gary Numan. Last minute a friend had an extra ticket to the sold out event at Brooklyn Bazaar to see Clan of Xymox. Here’s the strange part. I had a suspicion I was going to attend that concert. This was despite the fact I didn’t get advance tickets. Lo and behold, it was meant to be, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Two years ago around this time, my mother started to decline in health. By October 2015, she had passed away. The distraction was welcome indeed.

I’ve been in and out of the Goth subculture since I was 15 years old. My discovery of Gothic was by accident. It was my original intention to explore the ’80s Punk scene, as I was checking out for example, the Hardcore matinee at CBGB’s every Sunday afternoon. There I saw bands like Corrosion Of Conformity and Government Issue. Yes, those were the days. That phase didn’t last long with me. Something about Goth lured me in. As Siouxsie and The Banshees replaced Culture Club as a favorite band, I began to get more curious about anything Deathrock related. Soon I was meeting like minded people as I was attending concerts by The Cure back in 1985. Felt more aligned with other Goth peers than the Punks. Another factor was back in those days, you had to be careful around the hardcore scene. The violence was turning me off. The original Gothic (now known as “traditional” or “old school”) aesthetic was definitely more pleasing to the eye. Propaganda Magazine was another influence. Eventually I focused all my energy towards anything Batcave.

When I was 18 or 19, eventually I got into other genres of music. Which is only natural. Yet it’s like that horribly corny line from the film The Godfather Part III. You know that line when the Michael Corleone character says : ” Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in.” Which was my case with Goth. I’ve been dipping in and out of the local Goth scene since the late ’90s, but nothing really serious. In 2011 I was inadvertently dragged to a local Goth club party. An American expat from Germany had just came back to the U.S. He was DJing at a local event and wanted some company, which was me. That was my real introduction back towards anything Post-Punk.

So where I am going with this? Good question. Today I’m just typing with a flow of consciousness state of mind. Probably because the Clan of Xymox concert was better than I expected, so it’s still fresh. Then I realized after all these years, I never did a Psycho Bunny sketch where he was Goth. So there you have it.

Here’s the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for Monday, March 25, 2018.

Usually I post a new sketch every Monday. This week I’ve been late.

PsychoBunnyLateMarch2018WEB

To make up for this, I did not only one, but three sketches. The last sketch will be posted on time next Monday. Promise.

Onto the second sketch. Just commenting on a holiday I’m not particularly fond of. Spoken about this before. Not going to bore with my disdain. I’ll let the sketch speak of itself.

So enjoy your amateur drinking day, and remember that there were never any snakes in Ireland.

If that didn’t piss you off, you can always follow me on other social media. Facebook: Psycho Bunny comix, Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress, and my hobby, taking photos while riding NYC transit called Wildlife On The MTA. There’s also Twitter for myself, and for Psycho Bunny. There is something called Tumblr. Last, there’s always my Instagram account, Witchipoo Art.

So last night the Oscars was broadcast last night on American TV.

When I was a child, the Oscars was everything. Loved the pomp and circumstance, the red carpet gowns, the suspense, the thrill of winning an award, etc. Got so wrapped up in the Hollywood fantasy. It was a world me and you could never touch, but despite this, it symbolized that dreams do come true.

Now?

I couldn’t care less.

Perhaps it’s due to the declining quality of American mainstream releases. Don’t get me wrong. I still love the cinema. The ritual of going to the actual theater still is more appealing than catching a film a year later on Netflix. Unfortunately the cons are outweighing the pros. Ticket prices in NYC are so expensive. My latest preference is the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn. If you get up at the crack of dawn, you can catch an early matinee in Times Square. With cheap matinee tickets comes the risk bringing home bed bugs. No thank you.

There’s a reason why people “Netflix and chill.”

As I’ve become much more selective in where I purchase my film tickets, something else happened to me recently. On Facebook I had posted an article relating to #metoo. Somehow a certain film director’s mother who just happened to be on my Facebook friend list became furious that I had re-posted the article. She blasted me online. A case of shooting the messenger rather than the source. When she asked me who was I, my response was something like ‘I don’t know – you were the one who had sent me the friends request a few months ago…you should know.’ Thus I was promptly blocked.

Shrugs.

So after a few laughs, we looked up her name on IMDb. Turns out she was the mother of a famous film director. More incredibly, I was a fan of that particular director. Now every time I come across one of his films, I’m going to think about that exchange with his mom. ‘Tis a small world after all. That was some straight up TMZ shit right there.

*sigh*

Anyway. Here’s the Psycho Bunny sketch of The Week.

So if you want to curse me out, which I kind of like, don’t recommend, you can go to either one of my two Facebook pages – Psycho Bunny and Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress. There’s Twitter, my own account and Psycho Bunny. There’s also Tumblr and Instagram. Eventually I will have to fix my website so you can all order my comics and pretend I’m not such an unknown cartoonist. At least give me the illusion. Cheers.

This was something originally started in late 2016. Halfway through, some events happened that I had to put this on hold. Then in very late 2017, discovered this sketch. Finally finished it in 2018. When Valentine’s Day rolled around this year, I misplaced the original piece. It was supposed to be hand colored with watercolor paint. Despite purchasing my first Wacom in late 2017, I went ahead and digitally colored in a way that a graphic designer professor would cringe.

Anatomical heart artwork has become a tiny bit popular over the past few years. Here’s my take on it. It’s intention was for a flyer advertising a local craft fair. The craft fair and the collective was never meant to be.

The background was influenced by vintage flower patterns.
