Since early this year, I’ve been working on my photography. Taking one step beyond the beloved Instagram, I like to take the photo imperfections, and blend them into the process.

It all started when my good friend found a working manual film camera for under twenty bucks. He passed the goods onto me. Six months later as a belated birthday present, he also found an old digital camera. Added a bit of Photoshop skills to the mix for that unique look.

Here’s a brief collection of what I’ve taken so far:

So as I’ve said yesterday on this blog, got invited last minute via Facebook through cartoonist Sergio Zuniga. The event took place in Elmhurst, Queens, at the Hilltap Tavern. Every once in a while, Hilltap will have local Punk/Post-Punk/Hardcore bands play there. Even if that wasn’t the case, this local Irish bar scores points for having whiskey on tap, in barrels. Here’s photos from last night:

First of all, I apologize in advance. Not many photos were taken of the Welcome To My Nightmare III event. The following two pics were snapped before the show began.

Shitty Mickey Webcomic Panels on Display, As Well As A Few Assorted Other Illos. Sat. March 27th, 2010. Shitty Mickey was written by John Reed and Drawn by Michele Witchipoo.

At the top right of this photograph, you can see the Sarah Palin illustration, done summer 2008. Originally posted on a Penguin House blog entry, September 2008. This same illo will be published in the forthcoming book, Tales of Woe (MTV Press). It’s been an honor to work with John Reed.

The other display from my self-published sketchbook, on ‘WitchesBrewPress’ of course. These images are from Babalon Babes no. 4, the Astrology issue.

This next photo was of the band Skum City.

Last but not least, here’s a classic Billy Dee Williams neon sign for Colt 45 malt liquor. Hanging in the Don Pedro establishment.
