1949 Abner Dean Insurance Ad

I love this drawing by cartoonist Abner Dean of himself and his drawing table … and his forgetful ways of smoking. Look at that mushed-up old cushion on the chair, and the brushes and the "tester" area for his color hues to the right of the "Smoke Nokauff Cigarettes" ad.

Hmm. Looks like it was painted in nicotine yellow, doesn't it?

I always tell customers who come to us for car financing not to smoke in their cars if they want to maintain their values. Nobody likes to view a car that smells of stale cigarette smoke that has seeped into the leather!

In addition to that, smoking while driving is plain dangerous sometimes too. You should always have 2 hands on the wheel at all times.
