Many many artists inspire me! From back when I was in high school till now, I have loved the works of J.C. Leyendecker. I was thrilled to see a book of his work come out and I now own it (thanks dear), I got it for Christmas. While I had always loved his work I am now even a bigger fan finding out that he was gay and his main model was his long time lover :)
Here is one of the hundreds of magazine covers he did (you think "Saturday Evening Post" and magazines like that only used Rockwell covers? Leyendecker did MORE!)
I am sure you will see my version or something based on this picture sometime soon.
