Gary Hallgren

Gary Hallgren’s illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, MAD, The Wall Streetx Journal, Entertainment Weekly, and National Lampoon (his Pinocchio cover for the Lampoon is an all-time classic).

And he illustrated all of the best-selling books by Dr. Mehmet Oz. But he's probably best known as a key member of the infamous “Air Pirates.”

Hallgren teamed with Dan O'Neill, Ted Richards, Bobby London, and Shary Flenniken to produce two notorious issues of Air Pirates Funnies, which contained X-rated parodies of Mickey & Minnie Mouse, causing the Walt Disney organization to unleash its army of lawyers on the unruly underground cartoonists.

The battle went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled 9-0 in favor of Disney.

Hallgren currently paints personal visions of his favorite comics, especially “Nancy & Sluggo," he collects vintage Studebakers, and he ghosts one of America's most famous syndicated newspaper strips
