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.

I LOVE Chaz Addams! Every time I find a book of his, I have to buy it, even if I need the money for something else, haha! I always wished I was a part of the family. I even got Hine to draw me with the family one year.
