Norman Rockwell Speed Trap

According to Wikipedia Norman Rockwell was a 20th-century American author, painter and illustrator. His works enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States for their reflection of American culture. Specifically the day in the life of moms, dads, kids, and everyone in the average neighborhood. However, we accidentally ran across some rare and EXCLUSIVE Rockwell Rough Drafts* that we thought we’d share for your viewing pleasure.

What most people don’t know is that Norman Rockwell didn’t always get what he was trying to portray exactly right the first time. We always think about the ‘old days’ as being on a higher moral ground but what we discovered in some of the artist’s rough drafts is that life back then probably wasn’t too different from now, minus Facebook and Netflix of course.

Even Norman Rockwell thought the “No Dumping” signs were funny. Too bad he didn’t think his audience would have, too. This is the draft  to Norman Rockwell “Speed Trap”.
