Wesley Willis @ CIFF 44 also Milton Glaser!

Rest In Peace friend.

Raised in a broken home in one of Chicago's most dangerous neighborhoods, Wesley Willis sought refuge in art and music, creating thousands of extraordinarily detailed ink drawings of the city and its expressways, and producing more than 50 albums. Joyrides is a highly personal, deeply engrossing look at the life of a man who, despite incredible odds, became a prolific artist, underground icon, and an individual thousands dearly loved.

Milton Glaser: To Inform & Delight

For many, Milton Glaser is the personification of American graphic design. Best known for co-founding New York Magazine and the enduring I ♥ NY campaign, the full breadth of Glaser’s remarkable artistic output is revealed in this documentary portrait, MILTON GLASER: TO INFORM AND DELIGHT. From newspapers and magazine designs, to interior spaces, logos, and brand identities, to his celebrated prints, drawings, posters and paintings, the documentary offers audiences a much richer appreciation for one of the great modern renaissance men.
