Here's a moment I think we can all relate to: the first morning of summer vacation.
Of the many regular cover artists the Saturday Evening Post employed, Dick Sargent has to be one of my favourites. His gentle sense of humour and ability to capture those genuine moments of everyday life, always executed with great skill and solid craftsmanship, never fail to please.
Dick Sargent is on my list of illustrators who need to be showcased over the course of a week. For now, these two scans will have to do... and there's a third one in my Dick Sargent Flickr set.
