During my career as an illustrator I created illustrations to sell stuff. For a period of eleven years, during my fifty year career as a professional illustrator, I worked at Maritz Motivation Company helping sell stuff to corporations. Maritz created incentive programs for Corporations that motivated sales people to sell more stuff, by awarding them merchandise and or trips to exotic locations. So Maritz was selling stuff to corporations so that they could sell more stuff to consumers.
I worked at Maritz from 1969 until 1980. I enjoyed my time at Maritz and was paid to have fun creating illustrations.
On May 14, 2013 I will be speaking at the Illustration Section of the St. louis Artists’ Guild, sharing my art and experience,while working at Maritz.
I have shared my experience, while working at Maritz, many times on this blog and will be presenting this week, more of my illustrations created while working there.
