Take Me Back Tuesday

8th Grade Art



On Friday someone on twitter asked if anyone remembered the California Raisins Commercial from the 80's. I guess the California Raisins have been nominated for Advertising Week’s Icon Walk of Fame.



It immediately reminded me of an album cover I created in 8th grade. The assignment was to create an album cover for a song. This is what I created.Yes, I still have my portfolio from high school. It was fun to pull it out on Friday and look through my drawings.

I remember the commercial but I guess I never paid close enough attention to it.. Did he really say "Sounds Grape, Doesn't it?" at the end?? Oh dear.

I seriously wish I had a pinky full of your talent!
