"If you even dream of beating me you'd better wake up and apologize." -Muhammad Ali
RIP Ali, the greatest of all tiiiiiiiiime. Here's a classic illustration by Robert Grossman done for Esquire in 1972, and a clay caricature he did as well in 1974 (he sculpted Frazier too). Ali was truly remarkable, an icon of icons as a Sports figure, personality, conscientious objector and outspoken counterculture ambassador. I'm happy to have gotten to see some of his majestic matches live on tv back in the day.
