Water.

They weren't even fancy. Just regular bottles of water. 

Money orders.

I used to take them but they caused a lot of problems so I finally stopped doing it.

Lugging gear.

Should have stuck with the original plan!

Kids as dogs.

I thought this after seeing four dogs in a row barking at each other when they were being walked down the street.

Crow and bunny.

Do bunnies chase crows normally?

Song idea.

I'm gonna wait a day before I start making drastic changes.

Child comedian.

Roasted by a group of kids.

Running A Virtual Market, What He Learned - David Van, Tom Ray's Art Podcast Clip

What it was like to run an online virtual market for the first time? On my art podcast, I spoke with David Van who runs the Madison Makers Market which is a pop-up market that involves creators and artists in different places throughout the year. But when the world shut down in 2020 he tried an online virtual market. I asked him about his experience and how he ran this new virtual market for the first time. You did try to do a virtual market? Yes, I did. Man, it was awkward as hell!  Because it's a brand new format as a concept so we were all just kind of feeling around in the dark.  So I looked at what a couple other people were doing and some of those markets hadn't even gone live yet.

Xylus and Dexter in Space! "Pins and Needles" Episode 7 - Cartoon animation

Episode 7 - of my animated cartoon series Xylus and Dexter in Space! Here is episode 7 of my animated cartoon Xylus and Dexter in Space! Concept In this Episode: Xylus and Dexter had eliminated what they thought was the ghost of Phineas Handala... Or did they? ( Related post:   Xylus and Dexter in Space! "Mirror, Mirror" Episode 6 - Cartoon animation ) Cartoon Art I had been watching a lot of Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons and it inspired me to take a different direction with the backgrounds and character drawings that I had been doing up until now. I started out trying charcoal and sponge-styled backgrounds, like this one of the outside of the castle door. Castle exterior in Photoshop with sponge and charcoal textures But when I was animating the cartoons importing these image files as the backgrounds it made the file sizes huge! So I took the art I had already made in this style and redrew them in the animation software.  Then I vectorized one of the sponge brushes I was
