Two examples of Gilbert Bundy's 'Pep Appeal' ads for Kellog's. Bundy seems to have been called upon to do 'sequential art' assignments for several clients, including 'Sandfordized' (we'll look at that later this week).
I don't know if this approach - illustration with script-like text below - qualifies as comic strip advertising, per se... but its close.
Bundy shared this assignment series with James Williamson...
... and Dink Siegel. And here's a further curiosity: all three artists regularly did work for 'Sandfordized'... raising the question, did they share a studio at one time, or have the same art representative?
Or were they all simply known as having the sort of look that Kellog's, Sandfordized and other clients were looking for?
