A National Holiday…..

Wilson turns 70 on July 25, 2011! I am hoping to figure out how to celebrate this event, and will let you know soon.

We lost our caregiver, Joey, 3 weeks ago. He quit to move to LA, and we miss him terribly. Our new caregiver, Aaron, starts on Monday, June 20th. It will take a while to get used to someone new, but he is a lovely guy with lots of experience, so I have high hopes. It’s been a long three weeks taking care of him by myself!

I took Wilson to see the Pulp Fashion show at the Palace of the Legion of Honor last week, which was fantastic. (and yes…he liked it). We also went to “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” in 3D by Herzog. A truly incredible movie. We tried to go for a walk along the beach the other day, but the  Drive was closed due to sand drifts! It’s been terribly windy in SF the past couple of weeks. Apparently, you get sand blasted if you try to walk there when this weather event is going on. We had to stroll elsewhere, inland.

Please write something to Wilson, and/or send a donation to the Trust for his birthday. I promise to read everything to him on his Birthday Morning as I did last year. (He loved it, and felt like it was a party as I read them to him.) I’ll post some new photos on here from this Big Holiday.

Thank you all!

    I was reading an article on Trina Robbins and started thinking laterally…looked you up, and Zap!

    Happy Birthday, ~Hieronimo B. S. Clay Wilson~

    You have made it to 70, you have gravitas now.

    I was first introduce to Wilson’s work when I bought the 4th(?) issue of Zap comics back when it was first published in the early 1970’s. Original, and a bit mind bogeling for a kid not yet 20 years old, but oh, so cool! Happy birthday.

    S.Clay Wilson, I’m in hopes this finds you well. I would like to thank you for your inspiration. I too purchased a stack of underground comix as a youngster (14 yrs old) in a head shop in Old Town section of Chicago. I’ve spent endless hours drawing with pen and ink. I had dreams of being an illustrator. I wish there was a happy ending to that story but there is not. I still have that stack of 25 cent comix, dog eared an yellowed. I still make reference to Star Eyed Stella, Checkered Demon, and Captain Piss Gums. Get Well my friend I’ve never met. I love the picture of you with my other heros Crumb, Spain, and Paul Mavrides. Your Truly Wes Reynolds
