Andrew Loomis
In The Making, Pet Milk Company Advertisement

About the Item

Pet Milk Company Advertisement Signed lower center. As a youngster, William Andrew Loomis loved to draw pictures, but it was a visit to the nearby studio of Howard Chandler Christy that made him decide to seek for himself an artist’s career. Loomis was born in Syracuse, New York, and grew up in Zanesville, Ohio. At 19, he went to New York to attend the Art Students League, where he studied under George Bridgman and Frank Vincent DuMond. In 1915, he got a job in Chicago with the art organization of the Charles Daniel Frey; he also attended classes at the Chicago Art Institute. This was interrupted in 1917 when he enlisted in the Army and served 20 months, half of them in France. After the war, Loomis returned to Chicago to work at the Charles Everett Johnson advertising art studio, then for Bertch and Cooper. He finally opened his own studio as a free-lance artist. Equally at home in either editorial or advertising illustration, Loomis had a long career in both and also painted many twenty-four-sheet poster advertisements. This broad experience especially qualified him as a teacher at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Countless other art students who could not study with him personally benefited from his several art books, including Fun With a Pencil, Drawing for All It’s Worth, and Creative Illustration, published by The Viking Press. In 1999 Looms was inducted into the Society of Illustrators’ Hall of Fame.
