Roland, Roland, Roland
Wednesday Advertising Day.
When I first started scanning comic strip ads, I skipped these Nebisco ads by Roland Coe, because I found them a bit bland. But as I saw more of them, as well as Coe's daily panel in the forties and his cartoons for The Saturday Evening Post, I realized that his elegant style was in influence on a lot of cartoonists. I see traces of his style in Dik Browne and Bud Blake. Or maybe I have just grown to love them for themselves. I have shown some of these before, but at lest I was able to ad a color sample.
