I'm bummed I sold this vintage illustrated book - Tom Ray's Day 2100512

I look at some of the vintage and retro items I sold online in this video. Along the way, I think about how Popeye had a cartoon in the 80s and his kid wasn't Swee'Pea it was a surfin' kid named junior. I realize I remember way too much about the Fraggle Rock show. And I have another situation where I sold a book that I kind of regret selling because the artwork is so cool!

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

More vintage pop-culture items available in my eBay Store https://ebay.to/2vMYStC

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.

Progress on the music video I've been animating in Blender Grease Pencil

Going over how I've been animating this music video using Blender Grease Pencil I've been working on a cover of the song "Shore Leave" by Tom Waits . I've been animating this video in blender grease pencil and releasing it one line of the song at a time as YouTube shorts. I kind of wanted to go over how I'm doing it and also one of the problems I'm having that's actually made it really frustrating! Check out some of the scenes from the video -  Watch the first 3 scenes of my animation/music project

Second grade.

Just to be clear it wasn't a bad smell.

Healing pics.

That is so my mom.
