Happy 50th Swiss Family Treehouse!

LA Times ad, November 1962
 Just in time for 1962.  The world's greatest treehouse opened at Disneyland fifty years ago today.

The treehouse taking root in the summer of '62.

Paper bonfire for a Sweet 'N Low print ad.

Paper Autumn

This past summer, I posted about my collaboration with BL:ND creating papercraft sets for an advertising campaign for Sweet 'N Low designed to play throughout the year.  As we're now zooming into fall - or as near to a season change we experience here in Southern California - here's a decidedly autumnal scenic piece that I worked on.

The "living room" seen above on my desk, looked wonderfully warm and cozy after the lighting designer worked his magic.  In the final print ads, the room serves as backdrop for a "Spiced Cider Tea" recipe. Sounds good to me!
