'70 Corvette Magazine Ad-Art By Ken Dallison

"70 CORVETTE. WHAT ELSE.
Ken Dallison gives his illustrations a different look. A little looser than most artists and no pretense of being photographic. It brought a nice fresh look to this ad. Ken worked in a different way too. If he didn't like the look of, lets say the wheel area, he would simply cut it out and do it over again and glue it in place. He didn't do it often because he nearly always did it right the first time. Ken is still working today doing both commercial and fine art. I think the copy here was by Dick Wingerson and the art direction by Bob Forlenza or Don Gould.

McLaren is still remembered by London advertising veterans. Recently a colleague spotted a performing monkey at a London rail station and said: "Look! Bob McLaren!"

Only people who owns a corvette can understand the concept of having and driving a those cars. The last time a girl drove past my house and threw a box then I caught it with my hands and then I opened it and there were several tablets of Generic Viagra inside. I like to drive corvette It's the most magical experience you can have Buy Viagra Cheap Viagra.
