I found these classic ads that Ken worked on in one of the NY agencies. These ads are all in different stages of the creative process though artwork is brillant and reminds me of the show Madmen.

Last week I ran across a bunch of slides of art boards for GMAC. They are all dated February 1960, which means they were likely done at 18 Haven. This one caught my eye because one of my first image that I found in the family collection was the below image.

Elizabeth and Ken both enjoyed paining from photos, and the copy in this artboard appears complete. So, it begs the question: which one came first, the photo or the art board?
