Jeanne was already in Paris attending the American College there, I left the U.S. a couple of weeks later. On the airplane I was seated next to a gal from New York, Mary McClean. She was doing the same thing that Jeanne and I were, starting a adventure in Paris. It turned out that Mary would find a job at the college and be in charge of the catalog and other promotion material. So I ended up doing some illustrations for her. These are all from the school catalog and were painted in black and white.
Below are some ads that I proposed for the school but were never published. The finished drawings were done with a marker pen on rough watercolor paper to achieve a textured line.
My initial rough sketches for the ads.
More preliminary roughs.
