I gave my friend JACK DAVIS a call! For those of you that may not know, JACK designed many of the RANKIN/BASS Specials and TV series including THE JACKSON FIVE SHOW, THE KING KONG SHOW and MAD MONSTER PARTY. He is also one of my very favorite artists and did work for TIME MAGAZINE, TV GUIDE, MAD MAGAZINE and the list goes on! ARTHUR RANKIN took some pictures with him a few years back when he visited him at his home/studio in Georgia and is looking for them right now, for me to post. These images come from a GREAT book that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND called THE ARTIST WITHIN by Greg Preston.

Getting ready for my daughter Sara's outdoor Birthday party on August 16 (Her Birthday is the 17th)! My brother Chris will be playing drums. He couldn't make practice tonight because his wife Karen is having surgery in the am.
Don't let the sun...go down on me. Where is that PALERMO's delivery man?

Without SELLERS, EBAY would be out-of-business. Why is EBAY all of the sudden bullying sellers? Not only have they taken away the voice of the seller by not letting them leave a NUETRAL or NEGATIVE for buyers, or even respond to unwarranted NEGATIVES by buyers BUT now they threaten or suspend SELLERS for 30 days for unwarranted NEGATIVES and NUETRALS. FEEDBACK left by buyers with 0 or 1 FEEDBACK? This is EXTREMELY unfair and SELLERS have been leaving EBAY in droves. I also hear sales are down on business reports of late. Why???
Got hit with some heavy rain storms last night in the Chicagoland area...things are calming down this am. Still managed to pack up mail to ship off today! Luckily did not lose power last night. Have a GREAT Tuesday!

DEPT. 54 did these and based them somewhat off of the original RANKIN/BASS ANIMAGIC figures. Maybe with a bit of customization (especially with SANTA's beard and boots) YOU can get them to look like the real thing. www.timeandspacetoys.com
