Happy 100th Birthday to Charles Addams
Today is the 100th anniversary of cartoonist Charles Addams best known for his macabre cartoons featuring a family of characters which would become known as "The Addams Family." Here, using his first wife, Barbara as a model for Morticia, he sketches one of his cartoons. Charles Addams collections at the library caught my attention as a kid because of the subject matter and were probably my first exposure to black humor.
