Earle Levenstein

Born and bred in NYC. Public schools; HS of Music & Art. When not drawing, played stickball every day until dark. Rabid Brooklyn Dodger fan until they fled to CA; now afflicted with the NY Mets. Doomed. On to Syracuse U.; four years bowling at night, resting up during the day; classes a secondary concern. Drafted into the US Army; two years discovering France.


First job-related foray when back: free-lance magazine gag cartooning; precarious existence. Saw a TV storyboard, wrote and boarded one, hired by Benton & Bowles; moved on to Grey Advertising, became a Creative Director; on to another agency as Creative Director, another as President, opened my own agency. Through the years, met, worked with and knew scores of characters on both agency and client side of the battle to save the world from a life devoid of ways to spend money.

Interesting; weird; charming, amusing, boozers, talented, inspired and otherwise. Came away with scores of stories to tell; ADMAN is the first; halfway into the next; more to follow.

Holiday Closing Alert!  

LaborDay2Kwide721tall

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever, we're going to be closed for all three days of the Labor Day weekend.  

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Sunday-Monday, August 31st through September 2nd, 2019. 

No telephone calls, no emails will be answered.  We almost never do this, but it's been an incredibly hectic year and the short of it is, the Crew (and I) need a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, September 3rd, ready to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.
