Ever since I wrote about his career in this space, I've had the great pleasure on an ongoing correspondence with Charlie Allen. Along the way, Charlie has sent me not only his comments - but more terrific examples of his work than I can count. Yesterday was no exception.
It occurred to me that Charlie has so many great stories and so much amazing artwork to share, he really ought to have his own blog... so I set one up for him, and today you get to read his first post. I think you'll enjoy - and learn from - Charlie's remarks as much as I do. Its a rare opportunity to learn about the West Coast advertising art business of the mid-20th century from one of the top illustrators of those times... a guy who was there on 'the front lines' leading the charge.
Charlie plans to update his posts approximately once a week, so be sure to check in often at Charlie Allen's Blog.
You can always find it in my sidebar links!
