"Can't go on.....
Since my credit line is gone.....
In keeping with the current stormy economic times and climate, the CAWS will post a 1955 Kaiser Aluminum ad depicting a B-47 in stormy night skies.
At the time, I wasn't that happy with the stormy sky illustration. Felt it was over-dramatized and not well designed. Now, for some reason and in hindsight, I like it better.
Also, in keeping with the times (and our beleaguered banks), a second Kaiser ad, circa 1956, showing a bank with flawless aluminum door frames. Hopefully, this bank's loan portfolio was as pristine and flawless as its' doors!
How do you show the outside and inside of a bank at the same time? The ever present illustrative problems. For what it's worth, Haines Hall (P&H) posed for the bank officer on the left and the customer on the right. I was the customer with the striped sport coat on the right. Wish I still had that sport-coat!
Both were difficult assignments for a young artist...and presented a real challenge. Both had additional 'spot' illustrations, and, of course....a deadline.
The small illustrations appeared on the right of a double page spread in the Saturday Evening Post, Time, etc.
Another workout, but more fun to do!
