Will Elder, whose frantic, gag-filled illustrations helped to define the comic identity of Mad magazine and who was a creator of the Playboy cartoon serial “Little Annie Fanny,” died Wednesday in Rockleigh, N.J. He was 86.http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/18/arts/design/18elder.html?_r=1&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss&oref=slogin

One of my all time favorite artists.

Starchie and Bottleneck -- it doesn't get any better, or funnier.

Sorry to say I did not remember his name, but I sure remembered the art.

RIP.

Aw.
I don't think I ever knew his name, but I remember the art. Rest in peace, Mr. Elder. Thank you for the thread, Haskins.
