Illustration Friday - "Primitive"

©Kathleen Rietz
Carly thought Aunt Ruth with her record player and her collection of Beatles records was SOOOOOO primitive! Her little friend Sally couldn't have agreed more.

  1. Absolutely fab Kate! I can totally relate to Aunt Ruth! I have a set of record albums like that! Remember Sgt. Peppers, Debby Boone, Star Wars Soundtrack, Dirty Dancing ... ? LOL Those looks on the girls' faces say it all! Great album cover on the wall, btw! :)!

  15. Those 33's are primitive, aren't they--at least that's what we called them, "albums." Fun post.

  16. Oooh! Don't tell that to my twelve year old daughter. She is a Beatles afficionado, knows more Beatles song than I do. I consider it quite sophisticated of her rather than refined. Your drawings are so adorable. I like ASunt Ruth's clothes.

  37. This is so great for the theme! It's also, painfully true. But it seems like only yesterday (and I believe in yeterday) I was listening to the Beatles on my record player.

    I love the looks in the little girls' eyes. Just priceless.
