Charlie Allen: Vintage Ad Illustrations

April 13th, 2010 by Shannon-Rose Design

A Charlie Allen illustration for Burgermeister beer.

This collection of vintage advertisements from advertising illustrator, Charlie Allen, are really incredible. So much color, and the facial expressions are brilliant. They almost rendered photography unnecessary—and no paying for sets, talent, or photo editing.

One of Charlie's favorite ad series.

An old Clorox illustrated advertisement.

Love the incorporation of the shorts’ patterns in this illustration:

Wonder what the copyranter would say about some of these…
