'Big Octopus' - 1937 Spontoon Island MayDay parade
A puppet float at one of the 1937 May Day parades on Spontoon Island. This may be near the tourist hotels on South Island. March and April are spent doing maintenance & repairs on the hospitality infrastructure, including rooming houses for the Summer workers for the resorts and hotels. Workers are from the Spontoon Atoll and from the surrounding archipelago's islands. Training takes some of the 2 months, as does cleaning and moving in furnishings & supplies from the warehouses. Preparations are done by May Day, and that work is celebrated at the holiday. The festivities are also a get-acquainted party for the incoming Summer workers. The tourist cruise boats start arriving within a week.

Women's Beachwear circa 1934
As seen on Spontoon Island in the North Pacific. These are probably young American-culture females from a cruise-ship. The sarong-style skirt fabric may have been bought from a local sales shop for tourists. There might be demonstrations at the shop, or illustrated paper hand-outs showing the various ways a sarong could be styled and tied.

Beachwear with Lemon Drink (1930s)
Beachwear circa 1933 on Spontoon Island. (American fashions on a North Pacific island)

On the left is a cotton sunsuit, for lounging. This could be used for swimming, but it is light cotton fabric. If it gets wet, she may be glad for the dark color print.

Swim suits were of wool-knit, the only stretch fabric. Women's suits by the 1930s had 'modesty panels' front and back (to hide curves when the suit got wet). No built-in bras yet. Men's suits had 'speed' tops to cover up semi-naughty bits. (By 1935, men could wear trunks with optional sleeveless shirt.)

Interests
Jerry Collins, an early anthropomorphic-sf & furry cartoonist and artist is available for commissioned art. In the 1970s he became well-known for illustrations & comic strips featuring settings that shared his iconic species of Haku-hasin (nicknamed: "Bambiods"), Ganarfs (chibi-style little critters), & Teijenese (A.K.A. "Cat-bears").

Jerry has an account on Deviant Art as "GeorgieGanarf" - Most of the current gallery work is graphics-software sketches, but some examples of his traditional media work since the 1980s is in the many gallery folders at the account. Recent journals give his commission details, and a contact address.
georgieganarf.deviantart.com/

A summary of Jerry's commission rates in March 2015:
8.5 inches by 11 inches black & white (pencil sketch or ink sketch)- $30.00
8.5 inches by 11 inches color (usually markers or acrylic water-color)- $50.00
check or money order (Send with a self-addressed stamped envelope, or with enough money to cover return postage - about $6.00 for priority mail.)

(His sketches can be sketchy or detailed/finished. Subject matter is negotiable. His female & male characters are attractive, and often costumed, & can be romantic/sexy. I've not seen sketches of his that I would consider explicit. If you don't have a strong preference on subject, he seems very happy to send good samples from his recent practice sketches & development sketches. I recommend this.)

My recent DA gallery has some examples of where I have done inks (via light-table) over recent Jerry Collins detailed pencil sketches.

 More recent samples of his ink and pencil sketches from the last 5 years are at the Spontoon Island website. Some may be found via this contents page for a Jerry Collins section:

Some of his art is also in this section of original aircraft designs:
