Don’t Mess with Ali

muhammad ali quote chris piascik

My friend Clarence recently shared a Muhammad Ali tribute video with me. I’m a big fan of Ali and this video is great. One of the things I love about this edit is the inclusion of Ali’s quotes. I immediately thought that these would make a fun series of illustrations (like my Major Taylor series). This is the beginning.

Who is this guy?

He has been the recipient of Gold Awards, Silver Awards, Excellence Awards, Judge’s Awards and the Spirit of Creativity Award from the Connecticut Art Director’s Club as well as BoNE awards from the AIGA and a Silver Award from Gaphis.
