Haddon Hubbard “Sunny” Sundblom was born in Muskegon, MI on June 22, 1899.  The son of Scandinavian immigrants, he studied at the American Academy of Art. Sundblom is best remembered for his advertising work, including the Santa Claus images he did for Coca Cola from 1931 to 1964. Unfortunately his images of jolly old St Nick became so popular that we forget how important his contribution to advertisement was.   He is considered one of the most important producers of popular advertising imagery of the 20th century.  It is said that besides Norman Rockwell, Sundblom defined the American Dream in pictures.  Some of his other work you may be familiar with include:  Quaker Oats man, the romanticized couples on Cashmere Bouquet ads.  He also did the pin-ups for Coca Cola, those ladies from the 40’s and 50’s always enjoying a bottle of Coca Cola, the Sprite Boy, and many works for just about every single Fortune 500 company of the time.  Sunny died on March 10, 1976.
