Gahan Wilson

Gahan Wilson (b. 1930) is among the most popular, widely-read, and beloved cartoonists in the history of the medium, whose career spans the second half of the twentieth century, and all of the twenty first. His work has been seen by millions in the pages of Playboy, The New Yorker, Punch, The National Lampoon, and many other magazines; there is no telling, really, how many readers he has corrupted or comforted. He is revered for his playfully sinister take on childhood, adulthood, men, women, and monsters. His brand of humor makes you laugh until you cry. Wilson received the National Cartoonists Society’s Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.
