Did a few sketches for this year’s Inktober. Just haven’t gotten around to posting them. Here’s a quick one. Guess it was inspired by Pennywise, and the current success of the film It.

Wanted to work on a quick sketch over this past Labor Day weekend. Strangely though, couldn’t find my watercolors. Instead I found a small pack of unopened soft pastels.

When I was sketching, there was no set idea in mind. Pretty much on paper whatever came to mind. Turns out there was a moon in Pisces. For those inclined in astrology, there was a full moon on Sept. 5 or 6th 2017, after following a mercury in retrograde. Since I’m not a complete expert with astrology, there won’t be any lessons here. Instead, I’ll give you this:

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.

It’s nice to be back on schedule. Planning on your summer vacation? You might want to take advice from Psycho Bunny…

PSUnitedMay2017

Psycho Bunny flies United Airlines. Based on the comic written and drawn by Michele Witchipoo on WitchesBrewPress. May 2017.

Even if you don’t fly United, you can still follow Psycho Bunny on his many misadventures. There’s his Facebook page, the WitchesBrewPress page, Twitter and Instagram. Don’t forget to order Psycho Bunny comics on the WitchesBrewPress website. Till next time.

First of all, I want to apologize for the long hiatus. There was a series of events taking place that prevented me from regularly posting. Above all, dealing with a crooked landlord. Perhaps I’ll get into more detail later, but basically it comes down to this: gentrification sucks. In relation to that, there just seemed to be a series of events, one after the other. Oh, and that art collective I was a part of? Yeah, that’s no more either. In fact, I pulled the plug publicly on social media. Whether the other members want to carry on, it’s on them. Again, there might be more details revealed, if I chose to reveal them.

Anyway. Finally back to posting weekly. So for those who thought I was down for the count…here’s a big middle finger just for you.

Here’s some positive things. I created an Instagram account just for my art and illustrations. My personal account was put on private. It’s better that way. So follow WitchipooArt on Instagram. You can also click “like” on the two Facebook pages, Psycho Bunny Comix and WitchesBrewPress. My illustrations will be in two books by Feral House. The Prince and Mohammed Ali coloring books. Oh, and in the middle of what was happening, I did manage to do the Women In Comics comic con over in the Bronx. That took place in late March. Still working on the band though. Oh, and it would be great if you ordered any of my work from my website, which now needs a makeover. http://www.witchesbrewpress.com/

It’s now May 2017. Time to get back to business. I didn’t have a hangover straight for three months, but my character probably did. Since I wasn’t there to check up on him.

You can ignore the ink spots. Just as I was about finished with this quick sketch – some ink got spilled. Posted this sketch anyway. Enjoy.

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.
