His Nib

Wednesday Advertising Day.

A busy week, so I am playing catch-up with a new Nebisco ad by Roland Coe I scanned recently. Yesterday's What a Family! post got a few reactions suggesting Colin Alln's style was rooted in the thirties. I can agree about that, but what strikes me when I look at it, is how Allen was bridging the gap between the older and newer styles, like cartoonist Dave Gerard and Roland Coe. Here too, we see an artist who joins classic round figure composition with a sharper modern ink line.
