The Sundblom Circle

In the introduction to his June 1956 article on Haddon Sundblom in American Artist magazine, author Frederic Whitaker writes, "Through my art association activities I meet many commercial artists, and having asked about their beginnings I am amazed at the size of the majority who reply, "Oh, I began with Sunny in Chicago."

Below, Nick Hufford and a few of the many artists of what became known as "The Sundblom Circle."
