Could someone please confirm who I'm on about and then post some of their brilliant artwork up for me?  

He was American and possibly his most famous painting was a US sailor or marine, at a tattooist's, having yet another sweetheart's name etched on to his arm, with other women's names crossed out by the tattooist if I remember right.  If I'd wanted to be an artist it would have been in his style - life-like, clever and brilliant to look at.  

My morning compooter is steam driven, while my laptop is better but I'm still unable to sign on to Reg with any of my identities plus I've run out of email addresses to create a new identity.

Thanks for making this thread    

Have ordered a book of Rockwell prints now, can't wait to see it.

I know Rockwell worked from photographs a lot of the time, but they ARE stunning the pics I've seen so far, on here and elsewhere.

Norman Rockwell’s rosy illustrations of small town American life looked so photographic because his method was to copy photographs that he conceived and meticulously directed, working with various photographers and using friends and neighbors as his models.


That's not really any different to Van Gogh arranging sunflowers in a vase.

I saw one book called From Behind The Lens, I think it was, I never knew any of it before besides the Tattooist one being er tattooed on my mind.

It's also why I was so impressed with Tank Girl's friend's painting which TG posted on here a while back, I seem to appreciate life-like painting more than any other form.  No idea why I don't just prefer photographs then  The comic book illustrator Alex Ross is a fave too.

There's some interesting stuff on Rockwell here...

The book was delivered yesterday, and it is of course magnificent.  But guess which Rockwell painting ISN'T included

Bummer, when that happens.
I'm sure you will enjoy the rest though.

Think I'll buy a print of it and get it on the wall.
