November 22, 2019

Cartoonist Gahan Wilson, who was a frequent contributor to National Lampoon, passed away yesterday at the age of 89. The announcement appeared this morning on the fundraising site set up by his stepson Paul Winters to help pay for his memory care.

Update: Gahan’s New York Times obituary.


Sad to say, but given that he was suffering from dementia, this is probably for the best.

I’m glad I got to see the documentary about him. He drew some crazy stuff, as did Sam Gross.
