Last saturday I went with Lizzie & Vickie (who are much cuter than I drew them here, sorry guys) up to the Norman Rockwell Museum. It was alot of fun & the museum itself was neat- lots of paintings, a special exhibit about graphic novels, and the least museum-y looking museum go-ers I've ever seen (more than a few mullets and stretch pants), plus the ticket agent was an old guy in a pink buttondown and blue bowtie. My only quibble was with the informational video, which called Rockwell 'both an artist AND an illustrator' as if the two were mutually exclusive.
Looking back, its kind of funny to see how much I've stolen from rockwell- pictures within pictures, red headed kids = instant comedy, etc- he even did sequential image type things like this.
