Illustration Friday: Opinion



It is of my opinion that Norman Rockwell was one of the greatest painters, in both technique and story. I've always loved his paintings. I'd love any comments.

Some really good work! I've seen some of them but not all of them. My favorite is still the Norman Rockwell portrait. I like the lizard, too. You have a knack for illustration. I remember your Timpview chicken. I think I still have it in my filing cabinet at work. By the way, on your profile, you may want to correct the spelling of "illustration" since that is what you are majoring in. Just kidding! Love you, Mama Kass

I do not entirely share your opinion of NR but your portrait of him is a keeper.

Love the portrait. Saturday Evening Post coming into the house was a huge event and I grew up with NR. Having dropped out of art school at 62, I think I might just join you in saying NR was a great painter!

I've always loved Norman Rockwell as well. I love how he captured everyday people doing every day things, but made them seem so much more than what they really were. Love your illustration too. Really wonderful and inspiring. My favorite illustration of Norm's is the one from the soda shop.

I also love Norman Rockwell, especially for the story in his work! Work with a story captures me and won't let me go! Nice illustration.
