First up I want to thank Jon over at OTRCAT.com for his package! Cool now I have a whole disk of Jack Benny Christmas shows on mp3 to listen to while I’m working. Be sure to check out all those OTR shows and order them for your relatives they make great gifts for this time of year.
I’ve been listening to all kinds of odd OTR radio shows out of places like “Yesterday USA” while working buizzed-bully over here at the RevoluTuck Studios. The demands are really flooding in right now. Here is a page of warm up sketches I worked up, both in 1940s girl feel.
First one is some space cutie while listening to a cheezey episode of “Space Patrol” and the other is a pinup girl Santa .. and she’s got a gift for you! Hoo Hoo HoooooOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
UPDATE: SPEAKING OF PINUP GIRLS.. OH NO!!!!!!

LOS ANGELES (AP)
1950s pin-up queen Bettie Page is very sick. She was about to be released from a hospital last week after recovering from pneumonia, when she had a heart attack and went into a coma. She’s 85.
Page was a top student who became a secretary and then went into modeling. She hoped to become a mainstream actress. With her trademark short dark bangs, her photos included a centerfold in the January 1955 issue of Playboy magazine. But it was her bondage poses that made her the target of a Senate hearing on obscenity the same year. She never had to testify.
Page was out of the public eye for decades. During that time she became a born-again Christian and had a bout with mental illness. Page resurfaced in the 1990s and occasionally granted interviews but refused to allow her picture to be taken. She told the Los Angeles Times in a March 2006 interview she wanted to be remembered as she was when she was young and in her “golden times.”
