Ads and Sympathy

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Here are some more ads for Lipton Tea, which I used to think were by either Gill Fox or Dik Browne. Lately I have become more and more convinced that Browne set the style for these, whoever worked on them. It seems to have been usual at Johnstone and Cushing that each campaign had it's own artist and they were very rarely swqitched, but Fox could do a spot on imitation of any style and it seems even Bill Willams tried his hand at it at some times.
