As a writer and professor, one of my very favorite things is finding new talent. I got to know Norn Cutson this year because, as one of our Thinking Fans, he frequently writes to this site. It turns out that Norn is a Thinking Fan who has more than one way to express his enthusiasm for soaps. When Moose and I saw this illustration, we flipped. Wow! What talent! We asked to share it here at marlenadelacroix.com, and Norn kindly gave us permission.
Norn’s illustration is, of course, of All My Children. It’s the Kane women, Erica and her daughters Kendall and Bianca. Phenomenal women characters created and watched over by the phenomenal Agnes Nixon. So, happy 10,000th show to Ms. Nixon and everyone who loves AMC!
Norn is a graphics designer and illustrator who lives and works here in New York City. He is also a huge fan of One Life to Live. You’ve got to see his portfolio at Norn’s Island . There’re Charlotte Rae, and Judy Garland, and Ann Magnuson and gaggles and gaggles of impressive illustrations of the celebrities we love. Norn, what a find!
