COX'S COTTON DRESSES

8.88

VALUES TO 17.98 SIZES 5-15, 8-20, 12Yt-24Yt

For Cox's, two ads by Arnold Varga, Creative Art Supervisor, BBDO. The store gave him his start when he was 18. He's more than repaid the favor. The ads have won gold medals. The store has garnered its share of gold too-recently opened its fifth branch. ''The ads are presented to the client in groups offive to six in each group. This is done about once every two months when I personally meet with the store president. One ad is selected from each group." Whether working with Cox's or U.S. Steel, "I have found there is one factor that exists, and that is that creative people must always be critical of themselves, before being critical of the client.'' Varga does his drawings over and over until they can't be simpler, works until he feels it's the best he can do. Rejects the idea of group creativity. CA, July '60

TEXTURES FOR THE RUBBING

Metaloid Plywood

Small Thai boys thrust rubbings of temple friezes at Bangkok tourists. The thin English sun often shines on Britishers engaged in a gentle sport, making rubbings of ancient headstones, doorplates, etc. This same technique can make (commercial) art easier.

Plaster

Radio Panel

Want to make a brick house? A wood house?. Pick your surface, make your rubbing, draw your outline, fill in your details - and you've got it. To get the textures shown here, all it took was a light tracing vellum, a soft black pencil and some common sur,faces readily available in/around the office. Variations? Endless. And by reducing, reversing, enlarging, the p9ssibilities are indeed infinite.
