Illustrator Robert Rodriguez just emailed me these vegetables ads from Birds Eye that Charles E. White did back in the 70's. I still haven't found the actual Birds Eye Spitfire Ad but seeing these images brought back those fond memories as an illustrator assistant to Don Ivan Punchatz in the mid 70's. I barely remember the Pirate and the Bunny ones.
Here's a studio shot of Willardson + White with Dave Willardson and Charles E. White III and staff.
Thanx again to Robert Rodriguez for those fine images.
