A musical Saturday night...



We had a pretty musical Saturday night....but I am sick as a dog. Victor couldn't make it because he plays in another band called the BLACK ROSES. Our drum machine is absolutely amazing though. I caught a cold at work and it is becoming an upper respitory thing, which does not help with my asthma. I am so tired right now. www.myspace.com/rgoldschmidt

Speaking of Christmas....


I just got my CLOTHTIQUE "POSSIBLE DREAMS" RUDOLPH & SANTA statue yesterday from TIME & SPACE TOYS. It looks way better in person! The promo picture from the box actually looks bad. I positioned the beard a bit better too. I think you can trim the beard to get it even more like the original ANIMAGIC figure. Rudolph's nose lights up too. www.timeandspacetoys.com



We got about 3-5 inches of snow this am. It is all Christmasy again around here. It is blowing and drifting right now.

GENERAL MILLS cereal boxes

"Big G little O" TARGET Stores have these GREAT vintage box art designs on their current cereal boxes. A far cry from the horrible airbrushed cereal box art we always see on the store shelves these days! Grab them up soon before they are gone (I was at a store tonight and they stocked these better than last year's supply). Maybe they will start reissuing more classic box designs!

HAPPY PRESIDENTS' DAY!



HAPPY PRESIDENTS' DAY! Here are some illustrations by my friend JACK DAVIS from his 1965 book MEET ABRAHAM LINCOLN. This book is what brought Jack's art to the attention of ARTHUR RANKIN, JR. and lead to him illustrating the WILLY McBEAN & HIS MAGIC MACHINE one sheet poster in 1965, designing the KING KONG series in 1966 and then designing MAD MONSTER PARTY in 1967! Arthur often talks about Jack's wonderful pen and ink work on the pages of this book. Ron Murphy gave me this book as a gift a few years back.

One more day...


One more day on the WILLY McBEAN & HIS MAGIC MACHINE DVD Holiday offer! E-mail rickgoldsc@aol.com and THANK YOU for making this such a GREAT Success! I know you will enjoy the re-mastered film for years to come!
