Are among the very best things he's ever done. Just BRILLIANT.

I can't wait! You've not only nailed Baby June (as "Shirley Temple on poppers") but your newsboy Tulsa is equally terrific!!

You must be SAVORING doing that big finished illustration!

I love Mama Rose with her wild coat and her accessory puppy under her arm!

You're the best, norn - keep working and keep blushing.

But come to think of it, Tony Yazbeck would make a hell of a Louise.

Sheesh. 13 posts in and you can't edit your thread title to get his name right? For shame.


(PS. I see that it was edited. I meant no harm. I just wanted a shameless excuse for bumping a thread about Norn's illustrations. re: Norns new GYPSY caricatures )

*I* knew it was Louise.

Norn, you have an amazing gift of capturing the spirit of the show and performers, your caricatures are so much more than caricatures.

I like to call Norn the Hirschfeld of BWW.

I'd go so far to say he's the Hirschfeld of this generation!

I've always loved your work, but now that I've seen your avatars after seeing Gypsy I now understand your brilliance!

Ditto! This artwork should be in the NYTimes.


And I must say, I LOOOOOVE my Madame Rose avatar. re: Norns new GYPSY caricatures

I went to Norn's website and was WOWED by his work! His "One Life to Live" drawings are AMAZING! His opening page is so adorable! If you haven't seen this site- you must go to it! His art will automatically put a smile on your face!

My messenger bag should be arriving tomorrow. I'm just as excited about this bag as I ever was about getting a new lunch box back in elementary school! Norn has revolutionized Back-To-School basics more so than Mead or Five-Star ever did for me.

Ask and they shall come.

My bag is a particularly poignant Dolly Parton song. Never underestimate Norn's powers of customer service.
