Pencil Pusher!

Artwork copyright © 2014 Kenneth Laird.

Kenneth Laird is one those guys that can truly draw (as well as paint). His talent is well pronounced. I always tell young kids, who want to be illustrators, that it all has to do with the drawing. The more you do it the better you get. Kenneth is proof of that theory. He's done his homework!

Kenneth's worx can be found @

Kenneth graduated from the Memphis College of Art in 1992. He was named Illustrator of the Year by the faculty and received three scholarships while in attendance. Later in 2002 he received his Master of Arts degree from Syracuse University in Illustration and graduated top of his class. 
While at Syracuse, Laird studied under many Illustration greats such as C.F. Payne, Gary Kelley, Anita Kuntz, Tim O’Brien, Bart Forbes, John Thompson and Murray Tinkelman

I'm sure he had the pleasure of attending one of my speeches for Murray Tinkelman's MFA Program.

WOW, have I stumbled on a treasure trove of wrappers, packaging, and other ephemera @ The Munktiki Collection of Jason Liebig!
Lots to look at and to remember from the Golden Age of Advertising.
