Summer officially arrived late last week, so I've decided to lighten up for a while. Today's Inspiration will continue - but I'll be doing less intensive research and writing and posting more "just for fun" stuff.
To kick things off, here are several pieces from a fun 1960 ad campaign for Sanka Instant Coffee.
I 'test-drove' a couple of these images yesterday on Facebook and Flickr and was very pleased by the response they received.
Many people 'Liked' or 'Favorited' them immediately - suggesting they must be as appealing to today's audience as they no doubt were some fifty years ago.
No surprise that these fun illustrations enjoyed such an enthusiastic reception...
... but genuinely surprising (to me anyway) is discovering that John Falter was responsible for painting these images.
Who was John Falter? Like I said, I'm cutting back on the heavy lifting for the summer. But try Google Image Searching the name "John Falter." I bet you'll be surprised too!
