Vintage Illustration Artwork of Clare McKinley from 1949

This is some vintage illustration artwork by Clare McKinley from my library of old books that I collect. This artwork is from a Book Clare made called Animal Parade from 1949.

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 to help support my podcast!

The book is actually like a small zine. It's about 4 inches tall by 3 1/2 inches wide and has a cardstock cover. There are other versions of the book that have a cardboard cover. 

I was unable to find any more information about Clare McKinley except that this artist had made several books during this time period. All of them in a similar style.

The style of this artwork is just so vintage children's book and that is why I got it. It's hand-drawn and just so perfect.

I was eventually able to explain the situation and they are going to look into it. So it's closer to getting figured out at least.

This week I meet Sharon Bjyrd

Sharon is a painter who moved here from Chicago. She started out going to school for commercial art, which I realize is what we called it before it was graphic design. The story for the inspiration that started her interest in painting? Grace Jones. One of my favorite reasons so far. You can see more of her work on her Instagram.

Overseas shipping.

I felt bad for the person in the call center. They really seemed like this was very confusing to them.
