IAN McCLEAN of Penrith, New South Wales, recently sent me this photo of an IMPOSSIBLES original art set that he purchased from me. IAN had each 5x7 IMPOSSIBLES piece framed with a Spanish IMPOSSIBLES gum card. Looks great, Ian...thanks for sharing!

It's great to see these coming to our supermarket shelves! Love the packaging on the classic Taco Flavor DORITOS! I loved these as a kid, and I remember my Mom bringing these home from the market. My friend, 1960s pop culture guru HAL LIFSON, gave me the heads-up about the return of Taco Flavor DORITOS..."Well after many years off the shelves the "original" Taco Flavored Doritos are back! They are even in throwback packaging from the early 70s, with the yellow and orange Doritos logo, not the cold, chromium unappealing logo that appears now on all the Doritos bags." Thanks, Hal! Love the classic DORITOS logo, too!

Postings just haven't been happening here this past week. Leslie and I are in the process of moving, freelance work, and a few other things have been taking up my time. I'll be back to the daily posts very soon!

CHUCK TANNER - 1928-2011

Sorry to hear that CHUCK TANNER has passed away at the age of 82. TANNER was the Manager of the CHICAGO WHITE SOX from 1972-1975...when I loved going to the WHITE SOX games at the old Comiskey Park! TANNER also managed the 1979 World Champion PITTSBURGH PIRATES.

I remember buying this one off the spinner rack back in 1974...BATMAN #257!
SCOOBY-DOO sketch cards (below...each card measures 2.5" x 3.5", which is the size of a baseball card...markers, brush, pen & ink on textured 80 lb. card stock) and above...one of my SCOOBY brush inkings over pencil art by IWAO TAKAMOTO!
