Art

I've always loved any Rockwell art...correction, i love all his works. But one of my faves has to be this one named "The Runaway", i can't put my finger on it, but maybe it just speaks to me about my teen-years or whenever i faced certain decisions or problems in life. I always feel Rockwell art speaks volumes on a personal level, his visions of a "virtuous" America appeals on so many levels. You've probably seen his works in some-way/where or another...go check out the Norman Rockwell Museum to view his collection and online store. I know what i'm going to hang on the future walls of my home.

Nick Anderson wins this years Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartoons and its hard not to see why. He pulls no punches and is witty to boot. Heres 2 of my faves from those submitted for consideration:
