Toy or bug?

It truly could have gone either way. Turned out to be a large dragonfly.

Dance.

I'm pretty sure I'll never find a situation to use it though.

Inside.

I still feel weird just going outside for no reason sometimes.

Missing shirt.

It was super unexpected. She's even bought a new one since then.

More wasps.

I don't know why they freak me out so much.

Sending email.

Solicitations.

They say they loved my podcast but I'm pretty sure they never listened to it.

How I draw my daily webcomic on my website

I go over the process for how I draw my daily webcomic I post on my website. I've been drawing this comic for about 4 years now . It's a diary comic called "Then This Happened..." I think of something that happens to me each day and I try to express it in four panels. No punchlines, just a slice of life from my day. Related link - Collected books of my webcomic from the past three years are available now on Amazon in eBook and paperback! In the video, I show how I use the program Medibang Paint which has a feature to create the panels automatically. Then I write out the text for each panel and the drawing settings I have been using on my  Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen . The story that I draw about in this video deals with a problem I've been having with an online distributor that has been claiming songs as theirs by my band Lorenzo's Music which I feel like that happens a lot! You can check out the finished comic on the website here ! 

What about the money?

Did they think I would forget that part or something?

Smelled good.

It kinda smelled like Irish Spring soap which doesn't seem like a normal scent for a store.

More animation troubles.

The sound was fine until now.

Caterpillar.

Then of course I felt like one was on me all night.

Rearranging.

Plus nothing has moved in the place for over a year so it was due.

Tilt your head.

Usually, they just say look down or lookup. This one was very precise.

Thought this would go for more? - Tom Ray's Day 2100602

I auction this vintage Care Bears alarm clock on eBay and thought it would start a bidding war I look at some of the vintage and retro items I sold online in this video from my YouTube Channel . The last time I had a rare pop-culture item I auctioned it on eBay and it was way more valuable than I thought. I tried it again with this Care Bears alarm clock and did not have the same outcome. Oh well. I also sold a dancing Frankenstein monster, a Hanna-Barbera Valley of the dinosaurs comic, toy soldiers, and some sculptured candles. Plus, at the end of the video, I draw 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. Store link: More vintage pop-culture items available in my eBay Store - https://ebay.to/2vMYStC Was sad that I had to ship out this dancing Frankenstein's monster! You can see it do its thing at the beginning

Lost tracks.

I had to re-record the whole session which wasn't the end of the world but enough to warrant a Charlie Brown style yell.
