A Giraffe Illustration By American Composer Philip Glass

This may very well be one of the most “famous” giraffes we have on this website, and to think that drawings like this come from people who are sure to sign up for the street team? Unfortunately, as often happens when some drawings are sent in, my soliciting of a short story for this did not come to fruition and thus now must exist with an air of mystery around it. As always: so it goes.

American Composer Philip Glass

Philip Glass is perhaps the most influential composer of the late 20th century who has collaborated with the likes of Mick Jagger, Allen Ginsberg, Woody Allen and even Stephen Colbert. As if gracing the presence of Stephen T. Colbert were not enough, his musical scores have been nominated for several Golden Globe, BAFTA and Academy Awards. Judging by the list of his compositions, whether you know it or not, you have probably listened to many of his songs.

Glass was in Minnesota on April 6, 2011, for a show at The Dakota in Minneapolis and was apparently kind enough to do some autographs afterward, which was just the opening one needed to solicit an autograph – or a giraffe.

Or a string art painting?

    I’m so glad I asked him to do this. He just stared at me for a second and said, “A giraffe you say?” and just drew it in one long pen swipe. Also, amazing concert, very moving.
