Had nothing better to do but thought to share pages of my mother's yearbook from a Catholic high school she attended 55 years ago. I especially love the pre-Photoshop era of photo-manipulation going on here, you can't get that unless you know adequate brushwork, rubber cement and X-acto craftsmanship. The photo of a basketball game alone shaped my view of what I thought high school sports was like before going to high school.

Been a while, and when I was at wit's end, this came to my gaze.
Here's a hoodie and a Tee with finished versions of my designs as rendered by someone else (since I did my work by hand and not with a computer)....
I actually helped this little outfit out last year in providing some drawings I scribbled for possible logos or T-shirt concepts that were submitted to the owners. Needless to say I was paid a pittance for the whole matter, never pursued any further monetary fees for my rough-drafted originals, and nothing more really. Here's some sketches I did managed to scan or snapped before either sending it to them as well as some scribbles I sent to a friend recently.

Went to an estate sale yesterday and came across some interesting pieces of artwork that belong to someone I think went to the same high school I did, though 20 years before and may have taken the Commercial Art course they offered I didn't take (but my brother did). I can't remember his name other than for one piece that he did that put his initials in a logo, "J.P.". I was told he might have been a radio DJ in town though I didn't know more about it other than being told he had passed away and this is why they had the sale there. I tried to go back today but found they were already gone and done, sans for one jukebox waiting to be picked up. I did bother having the foresight to try taking pics of what I could there of this material if it had been sold or still kept by the owner/s. It's a interesting look into a world gone by and a testament to what hand-drawn or plotted work use to be. I especially love the mock album cover for a Village People record. Enjoy!
