I run all around town trying to find this dumb thing! Tom Ray's Day 210803

My day starts out simple enough, buying a lot of vintage comic books

I go to meet a guy to buy a bunch of vintage comics. That turns out to be a bust. 

But then I get a notification on my phone that I sold something that I listed about 2 years ago. The problem? Where the hell is it? I drive all over the place looking for it.

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.

Emma Groom: Comics and cloning plants - Tom Ray's Art Podcast 210919

Emma Groom is a comic book artist and writer living in Florida. Emma is working on a comic book called Recursions End doing the writing and the artwork. Emma decided to try and see what it would be like to pitch it to actual comics and book publishers and is in the process of doing that. During the conversation, Emma tells me that the whole thing started out as a text RPG game. While doing all this Emma also runs a plant cloning business that pays the bills.
