Taking a break looking back on MICE 2016 I & MICE 2016 II. This summer from June 1st to August 31st, Sketch Lottery is doing a free for all. This means anyone can submit from the character list. Usually you have to wait until a character is chosen weekly. Since this give me time to sketch any characters previously missed, I chose Hagar The Horrible.


Michele Witchipoo’s rendition of Hagar The Horrible with some Norse/Odin symbolism thrown in. Originally done for Sketch Lottery, June 2018. 

Hagar was put in Odin‘s place, while his buddy Lucky Eddie was put into Loki‘s position.

Don’t forget to check out all the other sketches by various artists on Sketch Lottery.

Here’s my latest illustration. Continuing with the Asatru influence.

In the background of this piece, you can also see the Yggdrasil tree. To quote Wikipedia (yeah, I know, but bear with me) Yggdrasill is an immense tree that is central in Norse cosmology on which the nine worlds existed.

In case you’re interested, I’m creating custom greeting cards and postcard featuring my artwork. Each card is unique, no two are alike. I’ll be posting more examples on my Esty site: http://www.etsy.com/shop/WitchesBrewPress. Just keep checking back time to time.

I’m not one to look into the past. It’s not something I normally like to do. Living in the present is a personal preference because as they say, yesterday already happened, and tomorrow may never come. I’m not the same person I was ten years ago, seven years ago, or not even three years ago. My point of views have changed dramatically in the course of a decade. Hell, it’s changed dramatically since a year and a half ago.

Having said all of this, I suppose it’s important to archive. Unfortunately, some really neat pieces I’ve done are now forever lost. Which is why now I normally don’t like to sell or give away originals. Perhaps I shouldn’t even pine over lost work. After all, I’ve really grown as both an artist and as a person. Contrary to what former ‘friends’ might say about me.

Still, it would’ve been nice. I had illustrations of Ganesha, Shiva, and Alister Crowley for example, circa 2003-2005. There was some basic Goddess and ‘Wiccan’ illos from that same period. There was two watercolor pieces I did as gifts to friends. One was a Norse related item, based on the Sowilo rune. Don’t regret giving away those, after all, they were intended as gifts. Luckily, I still have some of the JPG files.

"Sowilo" based on Norse Rune. Pen, ink, watercolor.

Since Mercury in retrograde is going to happen very shortly, I’ll use this time for reflection. Expect to see some old work within the next few days.
