The beloved "Coca-Cola Santa" was created by famed commercial illustrator Haddon Sunblom for the Coca-Cola Company in a series of images that were painted between 1931 and 1964.
Sunblom used a salesman friend as the model for the first few Santa images he created for "Coca-Cola". After the friend died, Sunblom used himself as the model. The body of work, through extensive advertising, became America's perception of Santa Claus/ Prior to that time, the image of Santa Claus was not standard as to his body shape or the color of his clothes.
