Right now it’s 28 Fahrenheit in NYC. A very good day to stay indoors.

Poor Psycho Bunny though. In a quest to get more beer, he has to go outside.

Introducing the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for January 20th, 2020.

So this just in. In addition to everything else I’ve been doing, I began a radio show. The focus is on comic book creators. Artists, writers, and other creatives. You can stream it live from WHCSradio.org. You can tune in every Friday from 1-2pm until further notice.

The show started on September 27th, with comic book artist, illustrator and musician (he has the Punk band Dead On A Friday) Dave Fox as the first guest. The second episode was aired on Oct. 4th with up and coming comic artist and illustration Squiddy Sprinkle. Today I interviewed Justin Melkmann, another comic artist and musician, who is the co-founder of the NYC Punk band WWIX, and also current member of Recreational Outrage.

I’ll be your host, interviewing all comic book pros. The next interview scheduled on October 26th is Danielle Draik, comic book artist, zine maker, painter and sculptor. On Nov. 8th we have comic book artist and illustrator Mindy Indy, who is having a successful Kickstarter.

The list of guest will be updated as the radio program continues. Eventually these interviews will be archived and posted online. So tune in again starting Oct. 26th.

Remember: Support your local cartoonist!

Back in June, I traveled to the Nassau County section of Long Island, NY to do a podcast interview for It Came From The Radio. The host was Mark Torres, who’s been doing the show on and off for about ten years. Currently the podcast is recorded at local station Grindhouse Radio, GHR for short. Both It Came From The Radio and Grindhouse Radio focus on all aspects of pop culture. Guests range is from indie to the well established.

This wasn’t my first time being interviewed on the radio. Back in 2010 I was on WVOX in Westchester, NY. For this recent broadcast, I show up on time, despite a snafu with my GPS. Have to say, I was very impressed with the vibe and decor of Grindhouse Radio. The staff was professional, yet warm and friendly.

As we were recording the program, the show was on Facebook Live. We discussed a range of subjects, ranging from recent film releases, The Avengers (comic & film, not the Punk band), Spice Girls and of course, my own work. My cat Squeaky, the basis of my latest comic had just passed away back in June, so we briefly discussed that. Mark was an awesome host. In all I had a really good time. Probably a better experience than when I was in Westchester nine years ago.

It Came From The Radio can be heard in multiple formats, such as iTunes, I Heart Radio, Overcast, Pocket Cast, Breaker, Google Podcast, Radio Public, Podbean, Spotify, PlayerFM, Soundcloud, Acast, Castbox, TuneIn, Stitcher, Podmust, Luminary, Blubrry, Mixcloud, or Google Play pages. There’s also an embedded player on the It Came From The Radio blog itself. You can also check out Beyond The Dawn Studios.

Thanks to both Mark from It Came From The Radio and GHR for having me.

Only the second day into 2017, which falls on a Monday. You know what that means. It’s the weekly Psycho Bunny sketch of the week.

PsychoBunnyGB2016

Psycho Bunny says goodbye to 2016. Based on the comic by Michele Witchipoo. Jan. 2017.

Perhaps some of you out there will agree with Psycho Bunny’s sentiment.

Despite his bickering, 2016 was actually a very good year for me. Not exactly sure what 2017 will bring…

No new news as of yet, except for being part of the Nasty Women exhibit at Knockdown Center

Don’t forget to click “like” on both Facebook pages: one for Psycho Bunny, and the other for WitchesBrewPress. I also got involved with a local collective from Ridgewood, Queens NY called Rock Paper Scissors. Click “like” on that page too, to hear about future events.

It was just only a few weeks ago that some folks were getting upset over these red Starbucks cups. Now we have bigger things to worry about.

Anyway, while some were complaining about ‘the war on Christmas’, Psycho Bunny has other plans…

As usual I’m going to mention about getting your own copy of Psycho Bunny through any of these two channels…there’s my website and my Etsy store. Psycho Bunny even has his own page on Facebook. Until next time!

Continuing to play long awaited catch-up, here’s a review of the last comic con I did. On May 16th, I took part in the White Plains Comic Con 2015. It was held at the White Plains public library at 100 Martine Avenue. It was nice to take a day trip out of NYC for the day, so off on the Metro-North we went.

Somehow I had trouble getting up due to my busy schedule, so I arrived late. Yeah, I know, excuses, excuses, typical artist standard time. However, I did manage to arrive at the White Plain Library, which held the free comic con. The moment the doors open, the entire library was packed. The crowds got to see indie artists, panels and a tiny bit of cosplay. The purpose of this comic con was to raise awareness for bullying. Being bullied myself in the past, this was a good cause. While I managed to overcome my experiences, unfortunately, not everyone is able to. Some carry this burden way after the bullying has ended, therefore leaving an effect years after onto someone’s psyche. So I contributed this sketch, drawn during the comic con.

Among some of the artists and vendors there were Archie Comics, Papercutz, Bronx Heroes, inker Alex Rivera, Ed Traquino, Pablo D. Martinez, Alitha E. Martinez, JM DeSantis, and other artists not mentioned here.

As for myself, I didn’t much stuff, as I’ve been mainly focusing on my new latest self-published titles. The latest Psycho Bunny mini-issue and my collection of sketches in Pin-Ups.

However, to my surprise, my last issue of Babalon Babes still sold. Someone brought the astrology themed issue.

Issue number 4 of Babalon Babes. Astrology issue. Babalon Babes has since been discontinued, but you can still order copies through WitchesBrewPress, or Etsy.

Couldn’t help but notice a vendor selling back comic book issues and vintage trading cards. These trading cards brought back memories. Especially since I used to collect Wacky Packages stickers.

Didn’t have a table at MoCCA 2014, not this year. Didn’t have any new stuff to promote. So I just basically walked around, checking out the other artists, etc. The strange part was coming across an comic book anthology I had contributed to back in 2012:

Below is a personal photo of the two page story I did with writer and person behind the book, Nicolas Caesar.

Short story I did the art for, Nicolas Caesar wrote the story. Published in the Filthy Cake horror comicbook anthology, 2012.

Of course I approached the table. Met another artist and writer who contributed to the comic book anthology as well. Below is the Tumblr link (of course, it’s not the most flattering photo, but hey):
