American International Pictures

This piece was done to promote an American International Pictures retrospective exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum.  It was a poster, probably invitations and whatever for the exhibition.  AIP was big in the fifties and at drive-in movie venues so I thought it appropriate to mock Rockwell with the illustration.  Rockwell was big in the fifties, Americana and all.  All that is gone now, the fifties, drive-in movies, AIP and Rockwell.  All that remains are memories and a painter to mock them and even he doesn't do Rockwell any more.
