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.

Making a book of my webcomic - How I add the images - Part 1

I wanted to talk about how I make books of my webcomic I started my webcomic in 2017 and made the first collected issue of those comics the following year. I did my own research and found out things through trial and error. Always wanted to show how I make these books and now that I’m putting together my fourth book I thought I would document the process in a series of videos. ( You can check out my Amazon books here - https://amzn.to/3qzSNdL ) How many episodes of my webcomic do I make? I try to draw a comic every day if I can. But I will miss a day from time to time. But when I put these together I assume it’s about 365 webcomics. Even though it’s slightly less but it’s pretty close. Where do I get the inspiration? I sit down at the end of each day and think about what happened that day. That’s why I call the series " Then this happened… " It first started out as a cathartic thing when my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. The first book is of the year going through th

Still trying to find the right balance for it though.

Song artwork.

It's a shadow on an object. Physically it should be there but it looks better without it and that seems wrong.

Everyone I've told this to asked me if I took any.
