Legends of Pin Up - Joyce Ballantyne

Joyce Ballantyne (1918 - 2006) - Best known for the iconic Coppertone cocker and kid ad which graced ads and billboards for many years. Early work for Rand McNally maps. Moved to Stevens/Gross studio where she was influenced by Haddon Sundblom and befriended and worked with Gil Elvgren (and probably others like AI Moore, Coby Whitmore, Thornton Utz, and Al Buell, all of whom remained friends)
