Sleep! Hypnosis comic book ad drawing

I've been drawing old comic book novelty ads lately. This is one for hypnosis. 

I gave it one of my favorite lines from MST3K scenes where a person is being hypnotized and Tom Servo shouts "SLEEP!" Here are some examples of that for fun.

I also have it available as a T-Shirt in my store 👕

Artwork for the original Candy Land game by Milton Bradley from 1955.

I have a vintage Candy Land game from 1955 by Milton Bradley and I was about to sell it so I thought I would add it to my personal art history course concept I've been doing . I'm going to try and see if I can find out how this game was created, designed and why? Here is what I found out about this game https://candy-land.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land_Wiki Candy Land is a board game about children exploring a world made out of candy and other sweets that originally came out in 1949. In every version of the game, there are a group of children that go through Candy Land. In the earliest versions of the game, it was a realistically drawn boy and girl. Drawing of the Candy Land kids I did on my phone ☝ https://board-games-galore.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land The game was designed in 1948 by Eleanor Abbott , while she was recovering from polio in San Diego, California. It's rumored that Eleanor also did the original artwork but I didn't find anything that

Can I Buy And Resell Copies Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP?

There are two questions that I get asked about publishing my webcomic books on Amazon KDP . 1 - Can I Order A Print Copy Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP? When I started printing on Amazon KDP I also had that question. The reason I put the books together is I was just kind of doing it for myself. I could make a paperback version of my webcomic books and then I and my family could get a copy. It didn't even occur to me that I could actually start selling the book in public.  I thought it was just print-on-demand and then maybe I could order one.  But when I print a book on Amazon KDP I can also get up to 999 copies and sell it on my own!  I was able to get my own copies from Amazon KDP sent to me.  As the author, I can get them at printing cost . So they're at a discounted price. The option to order author copies is right in the KDP publishing setup.  The button is next to the book in KDP. 👇 The other question I get about publishing my book on Amazon KDP... 2 - Can I Sell My A

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca

Using Google Photos and Google Docs To Make My Webcomic Book

I came up with a way to use Google docs and Google photos to make my webcomic books So whenever I draw my webcomics , the drawing program I use on my tablet saves them in a folder. I have Google Photos set up to back that folder up online.  At first, I just wanted to have them backed up there so I could have that "year ago today thing" where it would just show me my own comic from the past year in the app.  You know, so I could go, "oh I remember that happened this day". That was the original reason that I did this. Backing them up in Google Photos was a happy accident later on In my first book, I just used Google docs to put it together. I downloaded the book template from Amazon KDP and uploaded it to Google docs so it would have the right format. Then I just needed to add the comics. I added webcomics the hard way in the first book When I did the first book I thought this was genius! I figured out google docs lets me add images by URL and I had been posting t
