Crumb

I have never been aware of the genius that is Robert Crumb, but his style like like a merge of Tintin, Viz, and another female artist that died last year but I can’t think of her name for the life of me….

Anyway, I watched a film about him and his work last night, from the outset I knew it would be good because it was produced by David Lynch. But it was better than good. Crumb, the ultimate geek (I think Kip Dynamite was styled on him) complete with wierd sexual fetishes and desires (a cronic mastaurbator to his own comics), is testiment that the most talented people in the world are not always as socially acceptable as one would want to beleive, but they would not be able to produce groundbreaking work if they played by the rules.
