Let's consider this an annex to my artist/animation/illustration/comics site at http://www.miltonknight.net; Here's to your surprise and delight!
|Flea market. A figure I've seen elsewhere, probably advertising a liquor product.|
|Antique mall. By Avon, probably 1970s. For once Andy Capp makes himself useful: the cigarette sprays bath powder!|
|Beloved gift. Mascot for a soft drink popular in Michigan!|
|Thrift store. Imitation Dr. Seuss figures by Kreiss, my favorite ceramics makers. They're tagged as "Moon Beings".|
|The background art is inspired by old intermission trailers.|
Jerry Beck, Mark Kausler and yrs truly form a musical trio!
|Goods captured on various adventures.|
|Flea market. The seller said he's a Beatle.|
|Flea market. An FB friend has stated: |
"I have one of these. I was told it's of a Danish cartoonist named Storm Petersen, but upon googling him he doesn't look anything like it."
|Antique mall. Romanian.|
|Ebay. I have a Dagwood, too, but it was cracked & repaired when I got it, and comes apart every time I pack it.|
|Garage sale. Paper mache. Cute. No...who am I kidding? They're beautiful.|
|Thrift store. "Most Likely Not to Win an Award". |
A Facebook friend reveals: "HA! That's a "Woody" - awards that the entertainment dept. at Universal Studios Hollywood used to give out at the end of year banquet (when they used to do such things)."
|Thrift store animals, early 1990s. Reserved for their 'boutique' sections now, at least in L.A..|
|Original drawing from a foreign land (Egypt?). Possibly a sketch for a tourist.|
|An eloquent post card.|
|This is so (hopefully) the landlord's "handymen" don't foul up the lawn with their weed whackers. (They call it 'mowing'.)|
|Yes, it's a bit disorderly, but I call it home.|
|I'm going for that 1970s-imitation-1930s lush, cluttered bordello look.|
|It's not easy moving from a two bedroom apartment to a one bedroom house. All the stuff you hid from yourself is inescapable. Clear up one layer of clutter, and there are always three or four more waiting.|
