Plugging A Hole In The Bugg

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Last December I uploaded all I had of Bob Bugg's series of ads for Camels featuring Sgt. Bilko. Since then I found one more and a couple of Camels ads Buggs drew before taking on Bilko. These are possibly the best newspaper strip ads from the late fifties. Not only are they delightfully drawn in Bugg's unique style, but they also feature some spot on caricatures. If you haven't seen the December post, I urge you to have a look. After this he did another series for Weston, which are quite remarkable as well. And I found and added another one.
