Biography  
Haddon (Sunny) Sundblom


Born in Muskegon, Michigan, Haddon Sundblom, whom his friends called "Sunny", became one of the most prominent American illustrators of the early 20th century and dominated that field in Chicago beginning in the 1920s.  The original firm was Sundblom and Anderson and was located at 840 North Michigan Avenue before a move to 510 North Dearborn and then to Ontario Street with the name Sundblom, Johnston, and White.

He created many images that became famous for Coco Cola such as their annual Santa Claus figure for which he sometimes used himself as the model.  Other clients were Colgate, Maxwell House, Proctor and Gamble, etc. Voluptuous women, action figures, and bright, contrasting colors were a specialty.
