This Coca-Cola ad is on the back of the October 1952 National Geographic. Again, I have no idea who the illustrator was, and it's a nice illustration, but it's a bit of a strange ad.

Why put the headline cutting across her face? It literally looks like she's been slashed. Am I the only one to notice this? A disembodied head with this headline cutting from ear to ear. It works, but it makes me uncomfortable.
Then there is the idea that in 1952 a women is being shown having a job, in fact a career. By '52 women were supposed to be back in the home and most ads show them in domestic situations. I think it's interesting that Coca-Cola was pitching the idea of a woman with a career years after Rosie the Riveter was forced out of her job. I'd have loved to have heard the conversations between Coca-Cola and their agency. Who was pushing this idea? I think it's great, but highly unusual.
