Tom Ray's Art Podcast

Each episode I meet artists and creators from beginners, hobbyists and professionals. We talk about how they create, promote themselves and in the meantime still manage their own well-being.

A blog about my daily life since I decided to sell collectibles and pop-culture items I collect on eBay to help support my art career instead of taking on freelance work.

While going over the vintage retro items I sold online I didn't realize until after I recorded the video that this Big Top Pee-Wee storybook that I sold said the captions were by Jovial Bob Stine which is the other name used by Goosebumps author R.L.

Animation software.

In the past, I've used Flash to do my cartoons but I really want to see what I can do with Blender to animate them.

Wrong drink.

It was really odd-tasting since I thought I was going to be drinking carbonated water. I've done it the other way too from time to time, grabbing a water when I thought it was a beer.
