I've always wanted a huge poster print of this one to hang in my studio. One of my favorites!

I really like this. It could be a fantastic poster. You have a great sense of humor and the take on Norman Rockwell is great. I would welcome more work of this nature from you. You are a fantastic artist with a real classy classic style to it. I love your work it inspires me.

Its actually based on The Saturday Evening Post. I don't know if they still publish it but it was big in the Thirties. They featured a baby on the cover, you should consult Google on it. :chew:

Sorry for being that ignorant... :s
But 1st it's amazing!
2nd I have that as a poster at home. I took it at a comic store in Toronto.
I'm not really into poster so I hook it up with that blue gummy paste... Wrong move, now the corners have a big darker dot from that blue thing! So sad! It's was such a nice piece. Everybody that came around at that time used to give me great remarks upon your work!
I should have framed it!

Anyway, you have a fan in Montréal!
Thank you

Love this piece too, especially the expression on the girls face, those are so hard to get right, but can tell a thousand words

I've always loved this poster, I was crushed when they ran out. Fortunately, I ran into a guy a while later who had one hanging around.
Great work, man

Absolutely splendid. Reminds me of Norman Rockwell's style, but with your own twist.

Look man your asking me about a comment I made a year and a half ago about a shop that I refuse to go to (and have avoided since before you were even born) because of the shit service they gave me at the time. They treated their customers like crap unless you're in the circle of friends. The staff at the time couldn't be bothered to help a person out. I was in there on a regular weekly basis for a few months but was not treated like a customer. Yeah they have some real treats on the shelf you may not find elsewhere but I'd rather be treated nicely and take my chances that my current shop owner will try and get me what I'm looking for and if he can't I know he tried and that every year there is a con I can look for the stuff I want or need. I know by now they've turned over a pile of staff but they blew it then and won't get a dime of my money anymore. OK.

How? Ok its a little bit more pricey, but look at the area its in. You can find alot of things that that you really wont find at any comic store around here.

Thanks.
The purpose of the piece was to evoke the SATURDAY EVENING POST covers of JC Leyendecker, Norman Rockwell, Mead Schaeffer, and others...

Adam, this was the first image of your's that I ever saw. It was on the cover of my first issue of ImagineFX and ever since I've been a huge fan of your work and this piece is STILL my favorite! Is there any chance that you might sell this as a print yourself?
