A Great Cartoonist Needs Our Help

 

The Spill ends the work-week the way it began, with notice of a GoFundMe campaign for the great New Yorker cartoonist, Gahan Wilson, who is suffering from severe dementia. 

To donate and read all about the campaign go here.

For close to forty-five years Mr. Wilson has shared his fabulous world with us in the pages and on the cover of The New Yorker.  Steven Charles-Jaffee’s 2013 documentary, Born Dead, Still Weird, gave us a tour of Mr. Wilson’s real-life world — it’s a must see for anyone who loves comic art and artists.  

To see his work go to the official Gahan Wilson websiteThere’s also The New Yorker Cartoon Bank.
