Charles Addams created hilarious, spooky cartoons that are such macabre fun, and this time of year is the perfect season to enjoy them! Below is a selection of illustrations featuring The Addams Family, from his book Drawn and Quartered.
Gil Elvgren was one of the most important and prolific pin up artists of the early 20th century. Creating an aesthetic that is still celebrated today, Elvgren’s ladies are playful, adventurous, and unabashed in their various states of undress, innocent with just a hint of naughty. Choosing my favorites from his vast catalogue of work was very difficult, but I tried to put together a group that represented his seasonal themes, nudes, visual tricks and his overall celebration of the female form.
