    Justin Hamtpon came out and said Rockwell was his inspiration ...
    I was specifically asked by PJ's management to make the theme of this poster geographic so I based it on Mark Twain's 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn' as MT lived in Hartford, CT when he wrote it. It's also based on a famous painting by Norman Rockwell of the white washing the fence scene in the book. I gave it a modern twist with skater kids wheat pasting the fence with a Pearl Jam poster.

    The text at the bottom reads:

    'T-Bomb' Sawyer shows 'Chuckles' Barry Finn the fun and fine art of wheat pasting fences. (Apologies to the legendary late Norman Rockwell)
