Classic Gauld

If there's anyone I'd nominate as the heir to Edward Gorey, it's Tom Gauld. While his cartoons are concerned less strictly with the Victorian, Gothic, and macabre, his line and his playfulness with antiquity and mystery seem the logical progeny. He's posted a trove of his cartoons from the Guardian, and we're all the better for it.

I agree about Gauld's work, and there is a lot of goodness in the link you provided. Gauld's Kramers Ergot 7 work was amazing too!
