thanks to my good friend and mentor, kurt d. hollomon, i had the rare opportunity to meet design legend milton glaser at his studio in new york. it was definitely the high point of the year to sit for 45 minutes and listen to an honest to god genius talk about his work, the value of art to humanity and the current state of our country. it was an inspiring afternoon and my only hope, is that when i hit my 80's i'm still as passionate and enthusiastic as mr. glaser is.
so don your "i <3 ny" t-shirt, grab a DC comic and crack open a brooklyn lager (all logos designed by milton) and salute a living legend.
for a great recap of the visit and kurt's entire nyc visit (he's an oregonian) check out jake hollomon's top notch blog.
