George Leonard Carlson (1887-1962) was a prolific illustrator and artist with a whimsical and surreal style. While he gained recognition for his iconic dust jacket for the first edition of Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind (1936), his true passion lay in cartoons, comics, riddles, puzzles, nonsense rhymes, and games! As the chief artist and designer for the pioneering children’s pulp, John Martin’s Book, he crafted a playful and surreal world that captivated audiences. Despite being hailed by The Comics Journal as an "under-appreciated, largely overlooked cartoonist, illustrator, game designer, and graphic artist extraordinaire," his legacy endures through his influential 1933 book Draw Comics! Here's How - A Complete Book on Cartooning, which continues to inspire aspiring cartoonists. Recent retrospectives and publications like Perfect Nonsense: The Chaotic Comics and Goofy Games of George Carlson (2014) have reignited interest in his imaginative creations.
