Gahan Wilson

Somewhere in my early adolescence I discovered Gahan Wilson. His sense of humor was warped. His drawings dark and a little creepy. It was a perfect fit. For the few moments I dreamed of writing comics, I dreamed of being Gahan Wilson.

Thank you Mr. Wilson for helping me to survive my childhood!

I was reminded of his work when I read recently about a documentary coming out about his life called Gahan Wilson: Born Dead, Still Weird. He also recently illustrated this short animation based on a story by Neil Gaiman. Nice to know that he is still active.
