Rebuilding Blogroll

For some odd reason all the blog links in my Blogroll disappeared. I am in the process of rebuilding the Blogroll. This is very frustrating.

CD Artwork: Sounds of the Weird-Ohs

I recently made a CD of the old "Sounds of the Weird-Ohs" album and made some artwork for a jewel case for it. Thought I would share. These images can be downloaded at full size from my deviantArt page. These should come out the right size if printed double sided at 300 dpi. If you want to download the album all the songs are in mp3 format on weird-ohs.net.

Obituary: William W. "Bill" Campbell

I'm a bit late with this news but back at the beginning of the month it was learned that William W. "Bill" Campbell passed away at the age of 97. Campbell was a freelance cartoonist and illustrator. He is best remembered for his invention of the iconic Weird-Ohs model kits for Hawk Models. He started out as a box art illustrator for Hawk Plastic Models. After coming to the conclusion that the model car market was saturated, he made up some prototypes of monsters in hot rods which eventually became the Weird-Oh Car-icky-tures line of plastic models which also featured his artwork on the boxes.

Well, it seems a trip to Hobby Lobby is needed to begin fixing that omission. Only one pack of apples was purchased, so there are only three so far on the tree. There needs to be more...

A Trip to McDonaldland

After posting about McDonaldland a few days ago, and seeing this playset, I just had to have one. Well here it is, a complete Remco McDonaldland playset with all seven of the McDonaldland characters! The play surface and backdrop are in relatively good condition, the Locomotive works like a top, and the Apple Pie Tree is complete with all its branches, leaves, and swing. The restaurant is intact and the roof sign isn't broken.
