David Blossom, Illustrator
Though born in Chicago, Illinois, Blossom lived most of his life on the East Coast. Growing up in Rye, New York, he later moved with his family to Weston, Connecticut in 1963, where he lived until his death in 1995. He was the son of Earl Blossom, a well-known illustrator who worked in the 1920s through 1950s. Early in his career, he worked as an art director at Young & Rubicam, a communications company, where he was the Art Director for the Ford Motor Company and Pan American Airways accounts. His work in illustration included covers for romance novels and popular magazines such as Outdoor Life and Reader’s Digest. Blossom is also known for creating movie posters for such Clint Eastwood westerns
Below, are some of his illustrations that I own that I am looking to sell.

This painting won an Award of Excellence at the Society of Illustrators Annual Show in the early ’60s. 1962 or ’63, I think.
