Cross-hatch

Milton Glaser Collection Box 61 Folder 8. Sports Illustrated mechanical, 1961.

Milton Glaser did these drawings for a 1961 issue of Sports Illustrated on beaches. It’s a lovely example of Glaser’s long-time interest in cross-hatching (scroll down here for his cross-hatched mourning dog for Olivetti), which he has attributed to Morandi’s etchings. The three pieces of original art are especially compelling for their evidence of Glaser’s hand; you can almost imagine he completed these just now, as you were watching.
