Obscure Images: Gluyas Williams Orchestra Illustrations

There’s been a great thread on Gluyas Williams going on at the Comics Journal message board recently, with a lot of nice cartoons and illustrations from him. Mike Hunter, who started the thread, just posted a link to this auction of some wonderful Williams illustrations of various members of an orchestra. His cartoons show so much character even without any words… Williams is truly a master of subtle character observation. Here they are for your enjoyment.

I’ve posted a number of Williams cartoons on this site previously that can be seen here. You can see some more great stuff by Gluyas Williams at gluyaswilliams.com, at The Stripper’s Guide, and at Barnacle Press.
