WHY HE INSPIRES ME: As soon as I saw the work done by Milton Glaser I knew that
I liked it. I enjoy looking through his work because of the colors and the way he presents
Most of the work with strong lines and images. I am also inspired by the way he puts
Messages of meaning into his work, like the messages about the 911 and how he
Visually put his heart out in the public to show that he cared. I am inspired by this
Because it demonstrates that he has a story behind him and that he is not all art, that
Puts his heart and soul into his images and then puts them out to the world.
I also like the message about poverty in his image of the African hand with the light
Shining on the fingers of different culture that proves that he wants to make a differece
In poverty, not just sit back and watch. This is why I believe Milton Glaser is an inspiring
