Gahan Wilson honored

 

Ink Spill’s Chicago correspondent, Ken Krimstein reports that Gahan Wilson received an honorary doctorate this past weekend from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. That’s Gahan to the right in the above photo, with co-honoree, Eric Fischl.  Ken filed this report  :

Interestingly, not only did Gahan graduate from there, so did his mother. He was fabulous and very funny, quickly mocking a noose with his doctoral pendant on the stage. As the person who introduced him said, “Doctor Wilson you may now operate!”

Below photos from the program:
