Gahan Wilson Shows Restraint

This original illustration art by Gahan Wilson was sold on eBay at the beginning of July. As far as I can make out, the watercolor shows a female passenger onboard a ship being forcibly restrained by two unscrupulous older men apparently so that a third can...fondle her hair. I believe it's safe to deduce that this was not created as advertising art for a cruise line.

I refuse to write a new blog post every time the U.S. government shuts down. Instead, I just keep linking to this all-purpose blog post about government dysfunction.
