Artist, author, editor - it's difficult to describe Gahan Wilson succinctly. "Cartoons" is perhaps too confining a description of his art. Like the ever classic "FAR SIDE" strip..... Gahan Wilson depicts a world that's almost the same as ours, but not quite. In Wilson's world, mad scientists have trouble keeping up with General Electric's research budget, and tentacled aliens lie in wait for hapless door-to-door salesmen. There are stories behind all of them - perhaps wisely left to the imagination of the reader. Case in point here as this beautiful 7.2 by 7.2 inch illustration that depicts an X-Ray Technologist wearing a large lead-lined apron, gloves and mask, as he contemplates what to do next after his patient has been radiated to the point he has shrunk to 12 inches and is burnt to a crisp while still smoking on the X-Ray table! This art may have been published in Playboy, but not sure as there are no other identifying marks on this hand colored Gahan Wilson masterpiece. Wilson's work, eagerly sought by collector's of the darkly humorous, is rarely offered for public sale. Those pieces that do manage to make it to market are quickly snatched up, often disappearing into the depths of private collections, never to be seen again. Just a neat piece! ALL art on our website (including this one) are able to be purchased with VERY fair time payments, and trades are always considered towards "ANY" art on our website! Just send us an email to mikeburkey@aol.com and we can try to work something out.
