This vintage engraving, by Oscar Pletsch, titled Idle features a young girl slouched in a big chair. There is an open book at her feet and a kitten playing with a ball of yarn on the floor beside her chair but the girl looks uninterested and bored.

This illustration accurately depicts the feelings of boredom I’ve been experiencing these last few days since my computer crashed and I haven’t been able to work on my graphics. Many thanks to my nephew Derek for helping me get back on track – it feels great to be back!Oscar Pletsch, black and white graphics, bored girl clip art, vintage storybook illustration, Idle Pletsch engravingThe illustration is from Little Folks and Little Friends by Oscar Pletsch, circa 1880.

I’ll Be Back

by Julie J on May 14, 2015

I will be back with more vintage images to share with you but it may be a few days. Something in the tower of my computer “died” and I don’t have access to Photoshop on any other platform to be able to work on the graphics. My nephew is a computer technician and is going to help me with this but he isn’t available until the weekend.
