I found a picture of the cover drawn of my grandpa for the saturday evening post back in 1948 and I thought I'd show you guys. For those not familar with that magazine, it's the one Norman Rockwell would do covers for. This one wasn't done by Rockwell though. It was done by Mead Schaeffer. They stopped by my grandfather's farm one day in early 1948 and asked if they could take a picture and they took that one. Then later in 48' Mead drew the cover from the picture.

Just in case that image doesn't work, I'll attach it.

That's pretty cool, Rhett

Do you still have a copy of that edition?

Dude that's awesome! I love Norman Rockwell's stuff. It really personifies the look of that generation almost. His paintings he did for that magazine are very idyllic and pleasing for viewing.

This has given me another forum-inspiring-fun idea !!
Who among you is a fair cartoon-artist and can make pencilled versions in avatar-form of those forummers who wish to have that done ?

He's already done himself and me. The only challenge now is bribing him into doing more. :D
