Claire and I decided to put together a little marriage announcement for our friends and family, so I made an illustration based on Rockwell's for the occasion. I tried to copy his composition as closely as possible, while also modernizing it and bringing in a few specific elements from the Oakland Hall of Records, where our license was issued.
It was fun paying homage to a real master. Hopefully Mr. Rockwell is not rolling over in his grave because of this. If you ever get the chance, you should visit the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA. The collection is incredible, and they have some wonderful programming.
Next week it's back to the watercolors!
