Glaser places his haunting image over a quote celebrating the snow leopard's magnificent nature. Barely tamed by the art of the portrait, the vibrant colors evoke the cat's glowing eyes and fiery freedom.
In this announcement for a concert at Lincoln Center's Philharmonic Hall, Glaser's stylized portrait of the revered rock-and-roll singer features his trademark wide smile and his name on the diagonal over his dark shades. Glaser also created a poster for jazz musician Masakela's solo appearance at Philharmonic Hall around the same time.
Glaser represented the illustrator's twin talents through a series of signing hands with a stylized eye drawn in each palm. Against the black background, the rainbow striations of color vibrate and shimmer.
