Vintage Illustrations from the Walt Disney Studios, Mother Goose Book from 1952

A large number of vintage illustrations and artwork by Walt Disney historically go uncredited. All the other published drawings in books from this time period would credit the author and the artist behind it. Walt Disney would only say that it came from the "Walt Disney Studio". 

So while this artwork is still fantastic in design and color, I have no idea who the artist is behind this illustrated book I have here: Walt Disney's Mother Goose from 1952.

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.

I collect a lot of books from this time period for the artwork looking for inspiration. Along with the color scheme in this book, I like the way the drawings weave around the story text. Another reason why the artist should get credit. That is a bit of extra effort to add for no real payback.

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

When you find a drawing you don't remember doing

I don't remember drawing this picture A Google Photos drawing surprise I set up all the drawing apps I use on my phone and tablet to automatically back up what I create to  Google Photos .  The main reason is to save it of course. But the other reason I back up my drawings to Google Photos is that it has a memory feature . I get an alert each day where it tells me I have photo memories that I can look at.
