Drawing is thinking

Kottke highlights my favorite quote from this video of Milton Glaser reflecting on the relationship between drawing and thinking:

“It is only through drawing that I look at things carefully.”

The book Milton said he was working on is now available. “Based on the idea that all art is a form of meditation … the primary intent [of Drawing is Thinking] is to explore how the mind works in its attempt to create reality.”
