Cartoonist Gahan Wilson, renowned for his eerie artwork in The New Yorker, Playboy, National Lampoon and other magazines, recently illustrated an animated adaptation of Neil Gaiman's story "It Was a Dark and Silly Night."

The short film has just been uploaded by the New Yorker to help publicize a special screening of the documentary Gahan Wilson: Born Dead, Still Weird Friday at the Morgan Library & Museum. Steven-Charles Jaffe directed both the new cartoon and the 2007 documentary, which includes interviews with Guillermo Del Toro, Stephen Colbert, Randy Newman and more.
