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.

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.

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.

Here is what I found out about this game https://candy-land.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land_Wiki Candy Land is a board game about children exploring a world made out of candy and other sweets that originally came out in 1949. In every version of the game, there are a group of children that go through Candy Land. In the earliest versions of the game, it was a realistically drawn boy and girl. Drawing of the Candy Land kids I did on my phone ☝ https://board-games-galore.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land The game was designed in 1948 by Eleanor Abbott , while she was recovering from polio in San Diego, California. It's rumored that Eleanor also did the original artwork but I didn't find anything that

Bent tire.

No one could have got in there so I don't know what happened?

Rainfall.

It always makes me so happy when that happens.
