We didn't intentionally set out to replicate a Norman Rockwell style magazine cover illustration. We just happened to run across this intriguing self-portrait that featured an iconic Roanoke landmark that we happen to love and have referenced many times over the past thirty-five years of business journaling.
It's a rather perfect fit for our edition that showcases quite a bit of our local food and beverage scene, don't cha' think?
Rockwell was a master at creating visuals that felt nostalgic or sparked a memory of one of our own experiences.
That's suitable for many magazines. Just like Whitney Brock's image is so suitable for the FRONT.
