This view is a cropped down to 6.25 x 9.0.

Cover of Dinky Stories #2

(c)1986 Ralf Schulze
I was working at the second bronze sculpture foundry of my career Tallix.  This place was really cool.  I was also very much into mini-comics and mail-art at the time.  So I combined things and let them flow. 
This 16 pager was all my art except one page by my pal Ralph M. and a drawing by Dave Herman on the inside cover contents page (he also inspired 2 of the 3 Dinky Doo: Finisher pages.
I will post the other 2 pages of Dinky Doo: Finisher here soon.
The response to this comic inspired Tallix Funnies!

So this is a psuedo-re-start using Easter Sunday as the Rebirthday...[pun-intended]

Old Original Hand-carved Rubber Stamps #2

Add caption
More of my old Rubber Stamps from those bygone years of Mail Art and just plain fun packaging if you happen to send me a $1 or two for my comix.
From the top left:
1. Ordered from a rubber stamp company this with the words and the font as seen.  Still a good stamp!
2.  For $5 I sent to an address on the back of  Cheerios box.  "Send a picture of yourself and we will make a rubber stamp of your moniker for only $5!" or something like that.  It actually was pretty cool and well done and I used it thousands of times!  Of course the stamp is on a yellow plastic stamp block with the Cheerios logo.  (I should take a pic of that)
3. a carved rubber stamp by an unknown person.  very well done and I do not remember how I aquired it.
4. Ditto for this skull stamp also....
5. I stamped this Aardvark thousands of times but it is now on it's last bits.... tail, snout,ears and legs have been compromised by bad storage... oh well...
6. Larry the Leper.  I carved this into an eraser.
7.dinky Doo:  I carved this into wood.  He is featured on the last panel of this comix page!
8 & 10  Psychedelic Experience carved into an eraser for Mail art Project called .. . um... just  .. guess!
9 & 11 Hands with Envelope -- Hand carved by me.
