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.

Cool News from Jim Breuer

I’ve been a long-time fan of stand-up comedian and Saturday Night Live alum Jim Breuer.  He’s hysterical…does amazing impressions…if you think he’s only all about Goat Boy, guess again (and I still love that character).

You can find him every Friday afternoon on the Sirius Raw Dog station (channel 99) with his own show and he tours the U.S. regularly.  Today on his show he broke some big news (first hinted at during his awesome interview with Howard Stern earlier in the week) that VH-1 bought a show he pitched this week.  I didn’t get the whole description, but its going to be akin to a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock talk show – with him doing impressions of the rock stars who will be the “hosts”.  Check out his hysterical impression of AC/DC’s Brian Johnson and other (which totally cracked Stern up) Metal Gods like Ozzy or Metallica’s James Hetfield.  

My Life According To Me

Always remember the victims and justice, as that is what is important.
