Rockwell-Norman-LOC


When I was 14, I bought a Norman Rockwell agenda.

I didn’t make use of the agenda so much as it was a dreamland companion for me. At work, school, on the subway… I could pull out that calendar and browse Rockwell’s paintings and be transported into an alternate reality, rich in detail and depth of story.

Norman Rockwell was the king of emotional evocation.

I would invariably feel his art before I would pore over his execution.

I’ve never encountered another artist since who captured me so completely.

Merry Christmas everyone… enjoy.

Today we’ll take a look at the work and story of several successful licensed artists. What I love is that they all have very unique styles and are quite different from one another. This a great visual example of the breadth and scope of difference there is in opportunity in art licensing. (I haven’t even […]

No doubt Silvia is influencing a whole generation of painters to flow, splash, puddle and drip their way to beauty.

I’ve had a big throbbing art boner for Chris Uminga for several years now. “Edgy-cute” is his thing and Chris is part of the modern neo-pop art movement. I met Chris several years ago while exhibiting at Fan Expo in Toronto. I was immediately IN LOVE with his adorable illustrations and quickly threw all my […]

This month, it’s […]
