|Charles Addams Tribute Painting by Pete Von Sholly|
The birthday of Charles Addams, one of my creative idols, falls so close to the beginning of the year that I am able to make it the subject of my very first post for 2013. For me, the perfect way to embark upon the next 12 months. It also gives me a great excuse to share a painting I love by artist, Pete Von Sholly.
Charles "Chas" Addams was born on January 7, 1912, in Westfield, New Jersey, and died on September 29, 1988. Von Sholly's amusing and poignant tribute shows the cartoonist, and creator of The Addams Family, looking down benevolently upon his creations after having been called forth during a seance.
