Comedian Phil Hartman might best be known for his achievements as a voice actor in the Simpsons TV series, or his better known role on SNL (Saturday Night Live). What most people fail to realize about Mr. Hartman, the Canadian-American actor, voice artist, comedian, and screenwriter is that he was also a Graphic Designer, and a solid one.
In fact his undergrad was in graphic design from Cal State Northridge. During Hartman’s life time, he designed over 40 record covers for various bands. His most notable designs can be found on the covers of popular artists such as Crosby, Stills, and Nash.
There’s some confusion and controversy online as to what covers he worked on, so we’re sticking to the All Music Guide credits. They’re usually more accurate than somebody spitballing on the web. For now check out some of his legendary designs.
