Milton Glaser - Nina Simone Tomato. Glaser: a Designer's Illustrator, an Illustrator's Designer? He is so varied and prolific, probably best said in his own words: 'Drawing is how I think.' Hard time finding an image that 'represents' Mr. Glaser (his 'Dylan profile is all over.) I chose this one because I find it riveting, and as it's a somewhat 'unknown' example of his ability to visually capture ideas without resorting to a 'style' - even though it still feels like a 'Glaser'.
