Psycho Bunny thought it was more appropriate for 2016.

Introducing the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week. The holiday edition.

psychobunnyxmasdumpster

Psycho Bunny does a holiday dumpster fire instead of a Yule log. Based on the comic written and drawn by Michele Witchipoo. Dec. 2016. 

Hope everyone had a good holiday season so far. Thanks to the many people who supported me and my comics, illustrations and other work this year.

The usual plugs: Don’t forget to hit “like” for both Facebook pages. There’s one for Psycho Bunny Comix and one for my other illustration work WitchesBrewPress. Psycho Bunny is also on Twitter. Soon I’ll revamp my website for an updated shop menu. The shop will be updated, to make ordering comics easier. Stay tuned.

Happy holidays whatever you celebrate.

Surprisingly this year, I had a good holiday season. In fact, I’m sorry to see the 2014 holiday celebrations end. However, 2015 is a fresh start. On that note, I plan to make Valentine greetings, so stay tuned.

Happy New Year everyone.

Now that the holidays are nearly over, I took a look at the Christmas tree. Now I haven’t considered myself ‘Christian’ for over fifteen years. The origins of the Christmas tree actually has pre-Christian roots, pardon the pun. Regardless, the tree put out for nostalgia and tradition.

As I get older, I still cannot fathom chopping down live trees for only a few weeks consumption. The smell of fresh pine might be nice. A huge bushy tree certainly looks impressive in your house. However, I personally see getting a live tree a waste of money. Not only is it frivolous, but it doesn’t look so pretty when discarded live trees are thrown out on the sidewalk curb. The only good thing in getting a live tree is that it gives people jobs.

The faker the tree, the better. I like it when Christmas trees have artificial colors. Blue, silver, white, gold. Why? Why not?

Anyway, in the past, I’ve enjoyed decorating Xmas trees. This year I noticed something different. When you take one of those pre-lighted trees, don’t put any decorations on it, and just plug it in…it looks fine by itself. All you have to do it put an angel or a star on top and – ta dah – you’re done.

Maybe it was the result of some of the art classes I’ve taken, where you’re taught the ‘less is more’ aesthetic. There’s the desire to simplify life, not embrace so much clutter. Perhaps I just really didn’t want to go through the hassle of physically taking out the ornaments, only to put them away a few weeks later. Whatever it was…perhaps one can take this as a sign to look past life’s distractions. Instead focus at what’s really important.

Either that, or I’ve realized after all this time, a lot of Xmas decor is just gaudy.

Oh, and btw…I always found that song “Feed The Tree” by Belly to be annoying.

An iv17 Sol 6° Capricorn, Luna 18° Taurus Dies Solis
Sunday, December 27, 2009 e.v. 11:21 PM

As I typed this originally last week, it was Yuletime. Winter Solstice passed, Hanukkah passed, Christmas just ended. Then there’s Festivus, etc. Tons of holidays to choose from, take your pick. The year of celebrity death match is almost over.

I, for one is glad that 2009 is coming to a close. It had its ups and downs. I won’t even get into the subject about celebrity deaths. The start of 2009 certainly sucked for me. On December 30th, 2008, I threw out my back. I spent New Year’s Eve hobbling with a cane to the local bar because I just *had* to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Good thing I didn’t go with my original plans. Spent an hour in pain and headed back to bed, where I spent the next three-fours months. Pouted, cursed my fate, read, sketched. Hung around Facebook like a high school student playing hooky in the cafeteria. When I was bored with that, I caught up on DVDs and bad television. Along the way, discovered once again who my real friends were. Lost my faith in humanity for the hundredth time; but then again, I didn’t have much faith to begin with. (shrugs)

Eh, what can you do? I did manage to make it to the NYCC in one piece (New York Comic Con) limping in style with a rhinestone studded cane.

Could be worst; I could’ve been a dead celebrity.
(I’m not even go into the whole Michael Jackson death fiasco. He’s dead, get over it. Of course the media was over-reacting per usual, as if it was the second coming of Christ. Let him rot.)

Come around June, things turned around more positively. Got some web press, interviews and mentions on blogs. Had my illustrations shown on a writer’s blog. Worked on a webcomic and had my first cover art published. Released another self-published title, Babalon Babes no. 4 (the Astrology issue.)

Even so, so glad this year is almost over. Kinda glad this decade is almost over. The past ten years have been shitty, to say the least. Barely hitting two years into the decade, and Y2K led straight into 9/11. Bleh. Not that I didn’t feel for the victims of that disaster…ah forget it, I won’t get all political here. Just embarrassed as an American to be stuck with the worst President in US History. Bush with his big old monkey ears and clueless smile. A decade of reality TV, bad Emo, Hip-Hop, and pop music, global warming, blah, blah, blah. Having to lived in a decade where people slowly became more shallow, more cold, more heartless, with no sense of loyalty. Oh wait, maybe people were like that all along, only I just woke up from my naive daydreams into a living nightmare. Now how’s that for being over-dramatic?

On the plus side, there was the internet, iPods, the return of comfortable Converse sneakers…

Anyway, time for some self-promoting plugs…
