'58 Chevrolet Magazine Ad
YOUR PRIDE WILL PERK UP---'58 CHEVROLET
This illustration is another by Austin Briggs. Things like this make you wonder why we ever gave up on art for photography. I have several original illustrations from this period and I love looking at them. I have saved a few real nice ad photos too but somehow they don't bring forth the same feelings as the art. I know all the reasons photography has replaced art and they are good ones but still the old art is something special. And just think there was not one computer in the whole company. This is one more example of how we used something in motion to give the feeling of motion and speed to the Chevy.
