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.
Mr. Winters writes that his step-father is suffering from severe dementia.
Mr. Wilson began contributing to The New Yorker in 1976, but he is as well known for his work in Playboy and The National Lampoon. To say he is one of the towering figures in the cartoon universe is not an understatement.
Here are two of his numerous cartoon collections, and a promotional poster from the terrific 2013 Steven Charles-Jaffe documentary, Born Dead, Still Weird.
