A look at some of the artwork from this vintage activity book from the 70s that I found. 
I've always been fascinated with connect the dots artwork. It was always fun to do but you could clearly see what the image was.

Oops! Someone did this page.

I know when the pages are used that's supposed to be a bad thing. But when I see that some kid drew on the pages years ago it makes me think about what they were thinking at the time they did it? Especially in art books. Did they ever grow up to draw? Do they remember the book they did this in? 

Yeah I know that's super corny, but think about it ok!

I just realized that none of the artwork in the book matches the style that was on the cover at all! Why would there be a different artist for the cover than there was for the contents of the book itself?

I'd be curious to know how long it took for the artist to do this book and how much they made at the time they did this?

Of course, I can't talk about connect the dots and not mention Pee-Wee Herman's connect the dots song!

I just can't stop myself from pushing the button. It's right there.

Comic book concept page - Roger and the Monster.

Roger and the Monster concept comic page artwork I've had this concept for a comic for a while now. The easiest way to describe it is it's about a monster that is being haunted by humans. The whole thing is in the style of those old four-color Gold Key comics from the 70s. Roger is the name of the human character that messes with him in the comic and the monster doesn't have a name. I did an animation with the monster from the comic a while back called "Chipmunk" when I first thought of the concept. The design of the monster has changed slightly since I made this cartoon. But this concept is one that I keep revisiting. Maybe I'll do something with it someday? I just haven't really been able to think of a full story yet.

There were a bunch of cops hanging around them while they were doing it but it seemed like everyone was enjoying themselves.
