Here’s a very quick sketch done only in watercolor, with some digital enhancements. Since this Saturday is not only Caturday, but also the Fourth of July. What better way to start the weekend than to post art of a patriotic cat mermaid. Here’s the Caturday sketch of the week, featuring one of my cats, Netzach Wondercat. She’s more known as simply Nettie.

Nettie The Cat Mermaid. Watercolor done by Michele Witchipoo. July 2020. 

The past few years, I’ve been doing historic renditions of the American Revolution featuring my cartoon characters. The original intention was to get the focus away from mindlessly blowing up fireworks. In 2020 though, that might not be such a good idea.

Given the current political climate in the United States, I decided to switch it up. Instead of doing something based in the Colonial era, I give you a kitty sea siren.

Regardless of what your political beliefs are, enjoy the weekend.

Happy Caturday! For cat aficionados, Saturdays are for cat lovers who have the weekends off, so they spend their Saturdays with their cats. For this week’s Caturday, here’s a tribute to my beloved tuxedo cat, Squeaky Squeakums.

Squeaky was one of the best cats I ever had.

 

Squeaky was the inspiration behind the comic I published last year, The Temptation of Squeaky. (You can buy your own copy from my rebooted Etsy store.)

 

 

It was around this time last year that Squeaky dropped her body. On the anniversary of her death, I did this watercolor sketch.

Squeaky Squeakums is survived by Netzach Wondercat, aka Nettie.

Although I’ve adopted another rescue cat since then, nobody can ever take the place of Squeaky Squeakums. Mr. Jet Alister, an all black male cat has some big paws to fill.

Rest in peace, Squeaky.

Mother’s Day already passed. Psycho Bunny tries to make amends, but alas. His mother is none too pleased. What do you expect from a dysfunctional family.

Introducing the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for May 12, 2020.

Other news. Unless it’s an online/virtual comic book convention, I won’t be partaking in any physical cons this year. The year 2020 has already been scratched off. It’s not worth the risk. Especially when information about COVID-19 changes daily.

This doesn’t mean I haven’t stopped creating. In response to any quarantines, I’ve re-opened my Etsy store: Michele Witchipoo. You can purchase some of my comics there. There’s also handmade holiday ornanments, greeting cards, and eventually other items for sale. Check back every so often, the store will continue to have more merch posted.

Even though most of the U.S. is in quarantine, we can still celebrate the arrival of Spring. In our own ways – or least try to. Yesterday was May Day, also known as Beltane.

Squeaky Squeakums and her demon buddy Magnus Maximus did a little Caturday dance around the maypole.

Last night was Walpurgis, also known as Walpurgistnacht. It’s a hoilday based in European tradition. It could be Catholic or Pagan, depending on how it’s celebrated. Walpurgistnacht, according to Wikipedia: ‘In Germany, Hexennacht (“Witches’ Night”), the night from 30 April to 1 May, is the night when witches are reputed to hold a large celebration on the Brocken and await the arrival of spring and is held on the same night as Saint Walpurgis Night (Sankt Walpurgisnacht).’ 

In honor of Walpurgistnacht, here’s an illustration. Hand drawn, pen and ink.

Still doing my quarantine portraits. Here’s one of the legendary ’80s band Duran Duran.

While politics sucked, the 1980s had some amazing music. Duran Duran ruled the airwaves during the early to mid-80s. The band is still around today. They continue to release new material, tour, and reach out to fans via Twitter.

Duran Duran member John Taylor recently contracted and survived Covid-19, the novel coronavirus. Here’s to the road to recovery.

Since the quarantine, I’ve been sketching a lot. Here’s one of the German Neue Deutsche Härte band, Rammstein. Done in pen, ink, and watercolor. You can see the glimmer watercolors in person.

In the U.S., Rammstein is known for one song, Du Hast. Personally, I’m sick of Du Hast, and the other single Engel, from the album Sehnsucht. Instead I prefer songs from Mutter. Rammstein’s latest, debuted on May 2019. It has been ten years since the band released an album. The band was supposed to begin their first ever U.S. stadium tour, starting late summer/early fall 2020. It’s hard to say what’s going to happen thanks to Covid-19. The band posted a statement regarding future info on their website.

Rammstein’s lead singer, Till Lindemann, was recently hospitalized. Originally it was reported it was Coronavirus. Later the press confirmed the opposite; Lindermann tested negative.

Stay tuned for more music inspired illustrations.

Scene from The Armory Show, March 2020. Photo by Michele Witchipoo.

The last fair I hit up during NY Art Week was the motherload of them all – The Armory Show. For those who don’t know, The Armory Show is kinda-sorta a big deal in the fine art scene.

This was also the very last large scale event I attended before NYC was gripped with the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. Like everyone else, I’m on edge. Here’s some observations about the art fairs attended in regards to Covid19. Tiny precautions were taken at VOLTA NY, no precautions were seen at all during Art On Paper, and there were a few attendees who wore protective gear at The Armory Show. Some were seen wearing the disposable surgical masks. One stylist lady had on both googles and the blue disposable mask, complete with high heels.

The tone at The Armory Show was slightly quieter, maybe a little sober. It was on a Saturday night, but absolutely more serious and upscale than the other two fairs combined.

Meet my Betsey Johnson backpack. I’ve named it Bobby Matsumoto. Photo taken at The Armory Show, March 2020.

At one part I did participate in a photographer’s project. Stepped into a booth, where the photographer was taking Polaroids of fair attendees. He kept the one he took of me. Never had a chance to see it, because the Polaroid was still being developed. The guy did take one pic of my backpack, at my request. That photo he wasn’t too keen to keep, so it’s my memento of The Armory Show.

Becoming tired, I decided this would be my last art fair that weekend. Without further ado, here’s the rest of the photos from The Armory Show 2020.

Hope you enjoyed this post. This wraps up the three part series.

Fingers crossed for next year.
