Charles Addams frequently created cartoons that had a little something "off" in the image, that you needed to really look for to notice. My entry is a riff off the following Addams cartoon:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/61651/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1227943.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/61651/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1227943.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I deliberately processed this image to be deeply dark and shadowy, to most closely resemble the typical look of his cartoons.

Dang! I totally missed it. The trunk at the bottom ... DUH!!! This is underrated and should have made the Top Five at least. Very nice work.

It kind of misses the point, but the intent is certainly there. Fun image.

Someone who has really looked at the cartoons - lots of darkness, and most importantly those strong verticals that are so characteristics of Addams.
