Legendary underground cartoonist S. Clay Wilson was found lying unconscious on a San Francisco street, possibly the victim of a hit-and-run or a mugging. He is in serious condition (but improving) at San Francisco General Hospital, but will not be able to pay his medical bills. Jeff Weinberg of Water Row Books (which has supported his work for decades) sends this note:
“I have started to ask my customers to help S. Clay Wilson by donating whatever small amount they can to help him out this holiday season. As a self-employed artist, he’s screwed. Every little bit can help. All gifts will be designated on a card I’ll send Wilson with every angel’s name and address.
Please make check out to ‘S. Clay Wilson’ and mail it to Water Row Books, PO Box 438 Sudbury MA 01776″
