So many retro things I found today - What I Got! - Tom Ray's Retro Vlog 211203

I had a pretty good haul during this hunt for retro and vintage things to add to my collection

Looking for retro illustrated children's books and toys today. I planned on stopping at a place in town then traveling to another town to get more - What happened? The first place was so filled with cool pop-culture items from the 50s and 60s I spend the whole day there instead and filled up the car.

After that, I headed home to take a look at what I got! 

Here’s some of the cool stuff I check out in my quest for items we can flip for a profit and add to my collection.

And at the end, I show one of my webcomic diary pages.


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.

More vintage pop-culture items available in my eBay Store

Making a book of my webcomic - Artwork/Book sizes & Printing - Part 2

This is the second video in a series about how I make books of my webcomics In the previous video , I gave some background about how I started my webcomic, how I add the images to my book with the help of Google Photos and Google docs. You can check out part 1 here -  https://www.tomrayswebsite.com/2022/01/making-book-of-my-webcomic-how-i-add.html In this video, I wanted to talk more about how my webcomic transformed from something I was just posting on my website to a thing that I could find multiple uses for. Now when I drew the comic I knew it was going to be something I would publish as a book, put on multiple media sites that people use, and sell at shows and pop-ups if I wanted to. Now each webcomic is being turned into several things. ( You can check out my Amazon books here - https://amzn.to/3qzSNdL ) How did I choose a size for my book? Since I started making these the 3 books I published of my webcomics have all been different sizes. When I was just posting it on my website

eBay books.

I just thought that was interesting. Curious to see if they sell for that much.

Music stand.

I mean I waited 20 minutes so it's fair game right?

Rotating chair.

It's like I forgot how they work.
