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.

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

Angel Manuel Lopez: From Comics to 3D The Digital Art Journey - Tom Ray's Art Podcast

Listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts | YouTube Podcasts | Spotify | RSS In the episode of the Art Podcast, I meet Angel Manuel Lopez, an artist who goes by the moniker Son of a Saint. Angel's story is not just about his 15-year journey as a digital artist; it's a narrative of transformation and relentless pursuit of excellence that begins with a young person's love for comic books. As a child, Angel's father a truck driver, would bring him stacks of comics, sparking his interest in drawing and storytelling. This early passion laid the foundation for what would become a dynamic career in digital artistry. Angel's tale is a testament to the power of self-education and the determination to stand out in a sea of talent. Angel shares how he taught himself Photoshop, delved into the intricacies of 3D modeling, and mastered the art of branding. This led to creating movie posters and garnering press attention from the likes of the New York Post and the Daily News. Li
