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.

VMware set up for the band.

We've actually made tons of progress for working remotely using Ubuntu studio and GitHub. But the set up does take time.

The heat.

I actually don't mind the heat.

Vintage Illustration Artwork from Calling All Girls Digest from 1962

Here is some illustration artwork from a vintage magazine digest I found from 1962 called "Calling all girls". This was a magazine that was for teens that later became Young Miss magazine. It has a lot of really cool two-color illustrations for each of the articles in the digest.

Each issue also had a minicomic called Tizzie by Kate Osann. Tizzy, the title character, was a stereotypical teen-aged American girl. The episode drawn in this comic was Tizzie and her first job as a babysitter. And much like the rest of the book it used a two-color theme.





I actually like to try and recreate old ads like this and repurpose the artwork by illustrating them for band flyers.
