Sam’s Portrait of Milton Glaser used for the graniph t-shirt project

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Sam Haskins was a huge Milton Glaser fan. He subscribed to the ‘Push Pin Graphic‘ (a design newsletter produced by Milton Glaser and Seymour Chwast) way back in the days of his Johannesburg studio and from the time Sam set up his London studio in 1968 he had Milton Glaser art on the walls. Glaser images are still hanging in the house to this day. Sam would have been tickled to see his portraits of Glaser being used by graniph for their collaboration project with the legendary NY designer and illustrator.

Milton Glaser is without doubt one of the most impressive artists I ever met.

His recent book 'Drawing is Thinking' (published by Overlook Press) is a view into an extraordinary and highly intelligent mind at work and play. Glaser is also acutely articulate and charming when talking about design and illustration in general as well as his own work. The interview with Peter Mayer in the book is an important complement to the drawings.
