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.

Was sad that I had to ship out this dancing Frankenstein's monster!

You can see it do its thing at the beginning of the video.

Also sold this vintage Hanna-Barbera comic for the short-lived cartoon series Valley of the Dinosaurs.

Also in the comic book, there was an advertisement for enrolling in a truck driving school which seems weird for a children's comic.

This is the Care Bears alarm clock I mentioned.

I put it up for auction on eBay and thought it would go for more because it got a bid right away! But that turned out to be the only bidder. Oh well.

Then I show two more random but unique items.

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 ! 

More wasps.

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

Inside.

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

Dance.

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