A Rudolph book illustrated by Richard Scarry? And other vintage items sold - Tom Ray's Day 2100409

Another look at some of the retro/vintage items I sold online including puzzles, an ET VHS tape and some illustrated children's books including a version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer that was illustrated by Richard Scarry.

Plus, at the end of the video, my daily autobiographical webcomic.

This is a video of my daily life since I decided to sell collectibles and pop-culture items I collect on eBay to help support my art career instead of taking on freelance work.

The Disco Artwork Of The Bonkers 1978 Parker Brothers Board Game.

I tried to find the origin of the artwork on this vintage board game. But came up short. I got this version of the game " Bonkers! " by Parker Brothers from 1978. I remember the game because of the super disco/burst design. Kinda reminds me of that pinball counting cartoon segment on Sesame Street back in the day where they counted to 12. Which if you remember the song, I always love to point out the people that sing it are  The Pointer Sisters . Ok back to the game. Here is some info I learned about it. Described as a race-style board game designed by Paul J. Gruen who also came up with the game Pay Day and was considered one of the era's top board game designers. And I'm pretty sure when they say designed it's referring to the concept, not the artwork.

In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same 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

Paul Leonard Williams: Writer, Detective Stories and Martial Arts - Tom Ray's Art Podcast

In this episode of the podcast, I talk with writer Paul Leonard Williams . Paul has written a series of detective novels based on his central character Gideon Jones. But as we talk I find out that the idea for these stories started in high school but he was talked out of trying to be a writer by his parents. So for many years he actually went into the field of martial arts before deciding to reconnect with his original passion to be a writer later in life.
