Chwast’s Saintly Art

Finding a great designer or illustrator’s old work (or young work, depending on how you define it) is like looking at vintage snapshots. Seymour Chwast’s colored pencil drawing for Nikos Kazantzakis’ Saint Francis from 1962 is an elegant depiction of the patron saint of Italy and animals. Contemporary yet classic.
