RIP Kelly Freas 1922-2005
will probably be remembered by the majority as the creator of the image of Alfred E. Newman that appeared on the cover of Mad
magazine, but I was more familiar with his work on many science fiction magazines and book cover art for which he received many awards.
If those I highlight seem odd to some, I prefer to highlight those who others may overlook. It isn't that one is more important than another.
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
