BLUE MOON PENCIL TABLET

FLEA MARKET FRIDAYS #81

It has been awhile since I've been snooping in any flea markets or antique stores. Today, I finally had a chance to get out there. The cool part was visiting some shops with my old pal Mike, Mr. Aparofan. I found some cool stuff, but probably the most unique item is this very cool Blue Moon Pencil Tablet. I love the Man in the Moon graphics! He looks like he could star in a George Melies silent film. My guess this tablet is from the 1920s. 


Here's looking at you! For fun, I made a Man in the Moon gif to go along with today's post.

I love this graphic to pieces! Can you imagine what it would be like to show the (most likely long since departed) artist your animated gif? :)

Me too! I'm sure he never imagined that one day his artwork would be in eternal motion on something called the internet.
