Even if you don’t know Gahan Wilson’s name, chances are very good that you’ve laughed at his creations in magazines like Playboy, National Lampoon and The New Yorker.

Meet the Macabre and Mischievous Charles Addams

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Mickey Paraskevas

It’s fair to say that Michael “Mickey” Paraskevas’s mind doesn’t work in the same way most people’s do. For example, as an artist, he’ll offer a straight forward, lovely, realistic landscape rendering of an Iowa cornfield.
