I love to collect old illustrated books from garage sales and resale shops! The best part is having a library of different illustration artwork to look at for inspiration when I'm drawing something. 

Here are some pictures from a book called Bugs Bunny's Space Carrot from 1977. It features artwork by Ralph Heimdahl and William Lorencz.

Ralph Heimdahl was one of the most versatile artists of the 'Bugs Bunny' daily strip. He started illustrating the daily from its start in 1948. Heimdahl drew 'Bugs Bunny' until the 1970s. He also worked on the classic animated films 'Snow White' (1937) and 'Fantasia' (1940).

He created the British version of the 'Yogi Bear' comic in the 1960s, based on the Hanna-Barbera character of the same name.

I find it interesting how different the artwork is in the illustrations compared to what the artists did in the comic books.

Whenever I see a book that has two artists drawing illustrations on it like this I'm always curious who drew what.

Can I Buy And Resell Copies Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP?

There are two questions that I get asked about publishing my webcomic books on Amazon KDP . 1 - Can I Order A Print Copy Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP? When I started printing on Amazon KDP I also had that question. The reason I put the books together is I was just kind of doing it for myself. I could make a paperback version of my webcomic books and then I and my family could get a copy. It didn't even occur to me that I could actually start selling the book in public.  I thought it was just print-on-demand and then maybe I could order one.  But when I print a book on Amazon KDP I can also get up to 999 copies and sell it on my own!  I was able to get my own copies from Amazon KDP sent to me.  As the author, I can get them at printing cost . So they're at a discounted price. The option to order author copies is right in the KDP publishing setup.  The button is next to the book in KDP. 👇 The other question I get about publishing my book on Amazon KDP... 2 - Can I Sell My A

Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca
