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.

Dark train.

The heating system hasn't been hooked up yet anyway, so it wouldn't matter if the power was on yet. I've just gotten used to checking it in the past year.

Free Music Archive: A talk about the future of music and art on the internet - Tom Ray's Art Podcast 210110

One of my favorite music sites is opening again, the Free Music Archive !  I talk with  Hessel van Oorschot from the Netherlands who's company Tribe of Noise bought the site after it was shut down a few years ago. We talk about his plans for the relaunch of this site. But we also talk about the future of art and music on the internet. How different organizations like Coil and Grant for the Web are trying to find ways to help creators, artists, and musicians build their work outside of an ad-based revenue model. This conversation isn't just for musicians it's a discussion about what the future of art on the web could be and what some of these organizations are trying right now.

Wrong drink.

It was really odd-tasting since I thought I was going to be drinking carbonated water. I've done it the other way too from time to time, grabbing a water when I thought it was a beer.
