I believe in an open mind…

I was recently thrilled to find that one of the quotes I submitted for consideration to Print Magazine’s Imprint blog was selected to be turned into an illustration for the “Words of Wisdom” column of fabulous graphic designer Seymour Chwast!

Chwast, along with equally famous graphic designer Milton Glaser and others, was one of the founders of the iconic New York design and illustration studio PUSHPIN STUDIOS in 1954. PUSHPIN became one of the guiding references in the world of graphic design and illustration, in effect helping to revolutionize the way people look at design. Chwast’s work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and major museums around the world.

I actually had the pleasure of meeting Chwast himself at the San Diego Comic Con last year, and being able to tell him just how much his work had influenced my own career as a graphic designer, so this lucky chance of having an illustration done by him based on my suggestion was truly a treat!
