The Saturday Evening Post Magazine Cover, May 21, 1949

The irritated tire-changer? Why, that's artist George Hughes himself. The editors mused that he served as his own model because he was tired of waiting for Rockwell to insert him into aPost cover. Several Post cover artists lived near each other in Arlington, Vermont, and they used each other (and their families) as subjects. Rockwell had used fellow artists Atherton, Schaeffer and even himself as Post cover boys. Well, if you want something done, you'd better do it yourself
