Artist Series - Day 169: Norman Rockwell

image


"Stormin' Norman" Rockwell :)  Obviously, basically the entire world knows this guy's work, but in the wake of Illustration Master Class, I'm revisiting his work.  Check out his masterful use of reference, the authenticity of his figures, the elegance of his compositions.

Sure, some of his stuff is a bit fluffy, but he was a tireless defender of equal rights - there is a lot more to him than light Americana.  I tend to like his environmental stuff, which should be shocking to no one.
