ALBERT DORNE



Here is an original ad for Kellogs by Albert Dorne one of the most successful illustrators of all time, and founder of the Famous Artist School.
I've been a huge fan of his work for a long time and was so happy to win this piece in auction recently. You can see a bigger scan here. The comic strip format was employed often by Dorne as well as many other advertising artists and agencies through the 30's to the 50's. Dorne was a big influence on John Buscema and many comic artists of that great generation.
