Mickey O'Malley tickles

Discuss general aspects of Genii.

Mickey O'Malley's artwork on the cover and inside of the Nov-Dec Genii "tickles my innards." There is so much beauty and devilish nuance in his Bunny, Santa and Genie, I had to point it out.

I love O'Malley's work, which is inextricably linked with the issues of Genii of my youth. And that's why I included it in our 75th anniversary issue. I hope to include more in future issues ... just have to figure out an appropriate way to do it.

O'Malley did a great "Super Magician" spoof drawing for the Magic Shop Newsletter that Stan Allen turned into a poster. Wish I still had mine.

Not only was Micky O'Malley's work great, but knowing him from his Detroit boyhood days [as Micky Ostaski (sp?)] he was a great guy, too!

His son, Michael Ostaski, is an artist as well. He used to live in Santa Barbara and was doing artistic construction projects like custom hot tubs, remodels etc. Then he got into painting with airbrush and now he is doing performance painting:
