Hello! I rarely ever post personal things on this blog, but I am the designer of a Unisex Streetwear label called GODDESS and I’m currently seeking funding for my next collection through Kickstarter! If you are able to help out, please donate, otherwise please reblog and help spread the word! :)
I’ve decided that every time I get sick, you guys will be flooded with JC Leyendecker posts (Yes, 2nd time this week. UGH!). I just realized I never posted pictures from my visit to the Haggin Museum last year. You guys are in for a treat!
Wow! I can’t wait to visit the Haggin Museum some day!
I need to find me a Leyendecker lad… ;)
So I’m laying in bed feeling ill and completely useless. I decided to catch up on The Colbert Report trying to recover from whatever BS bug I caught. On one episode, there is this writer promoting her book about Norman Rockwell. Once again, no mentions of JC Leyendecker who Rockwell pretty much idolized and even studied under.
Don’t get me wrong. I really do like Rockwell, I just get tired of people completely forgetting that Leyendecker existed. Leyendecker brought a lot to the world of art with storytelling, conservative brush strokes (less is more), imagery of the New Years Baby and giving flowers on Mother’s dad, appreciation of men’s fashion, and good lord so much more.
So here is a Leyendecker appreciation post brought to you from my ipod.
That must be it! It’s called April Shower. Not a Leyendecker, but thanks for the help!
Hello! I just looked through my Leyendecker book (the one by Cutler & Cutler) and I didn’t see any illustration that matches the description you provided… I’m not sure if the book is exhaustive but if it is then perhaps the art you’re thinking of was by a different artist. Maybe one of my readers will know what you’re looking for! (Illustration was published in the Saturday Evening Post calendar a few years ago- anyone know anything about it?)
