I get song idea while packing up things I sold on eBay - Tom Ray's Day 200625

I go through some of the pop-culture items I collect from the 1950s to the 1990s that I sold on eBay. I also impulse buy a laptop which was a mistake. I also get an idea for a new song to write for my band Lorenzo's Music. And I draw my daily webcomic.

VMware set up for the band.

We've actually made tons of progress for working remotely using Ubuntu studio and GitHub. But the set up does take time.

The heat.

I actually don't mind the heat.

Vintage Illustration Artwork from Calling All Girls Digest from 1962

Here is some illustration artwork from a vintage magazine digest I found from 1962 called "Calling all girls". This was a magazine that was for teens that later became Young Miss magazine. It has a lot of really cool two-color illustrations for each of the articles in the digest.
If you would like to see more of the books that I've collected from resale shops over the years I also sell them in my eBay store.



Each issue also had a minicomic called Tizzie by Kate Osann. Tizzy, the title character, was a stereotypical teen-aged American girl. The episode drawn in this comic was Tizzie and her first job as a babysitter. And much like the rest of the book it used a two-color theme.





I actually like to try and recreate old ads like this and repurpose the artwork by illustrating them for band flyers.
