Hi, I have been in love with this illustrators work for many years; but have not been able to find much out about him/her. Do you know anything at all about the person who did these great ads?
Thanks for posting them...some I have never seen.

Hi! I don't know anything about the illustrator either. I've made a set on flickr with all the images I could find of his/her work. You can see it, if you like, by following the link underneath the image to my flickr photostream. Have a nice holliday!
