Phil Hartman: Legendary SNL Comic Actor Also An Accomplished Graphic Artist

17 Apr

DID YOU KNOW? The late, great Phil Hartman (SNL, News Radio) was also an artist, and created the covers to several classic rock albums?

Prior to becoming reknown for hilarity (and voice-over work, too; he was the voice of several characters on The Simpsons including Troy McClure) Hartman had his own graphic arts business, creating over 40 album covers for bands like Poco, America and the  Poco and America, as well as advertising and the logo for Crosby, Stills & Nash

Can’t help but wonder all the great things Hartman would still be doing had he not died so suddenly, so tragically? What an amazing talent, and most who remember him don’t know he was such an accomplished graphic artist.
