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.

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.
