Gahan Wilson

I really enjoyed the article on cartoonists that adele put in the linkopotamia a while back. I love Gahan Wilson and thought that maybe some bloggie comrades didn't know his work - so it seemed like a great topic to post in the Secret Garden.

Gahan Wilson - Key West Cemetery (1969)

I first became aware of Gahan Wilson's art from Playboy. Here is a very good thumbnail profile of him. I took these cartoons from my two books: Playboy's Gahan Wilson (1973) and Is Nothing Sacred? (1982). I had a wonderful time going through these books; it had been years since I glanced at them and his macabre humor made me laugh out loud as if reading them for the first time.

So enjoy a little sample of his work and then go out and buy some of it! He has some things listed on his own website and then there's always Amazon or your library. Enjoy!

The cover art for Is Nothing Sacred? is actually much more detailed that this cel. I made a watercolor drawing of it for Tom when we were dating and it's currently hanging in our laundry room ;-)
