R. Crumb


R. Crumb as seen in Crumb which required a lot of fast forwarding past all of the really ridiculous to get to the just plain ridiculous and an appointment with a counselor.

Perfect! I've only heard from Scott that the movie is, ummm rated. You did an awesome job drawing Crumb...Scott will love seeing it.

Scott said...

Lisa's right. I love seeing it. There are some nice subtle nods to his work in your style here, especially in the shading.

The man himself would undoubtedly like it, but would acknowledge that it's not depraved enough. :)

B, I wish that i had not, it just did not focus on his work quite enough and it was just so strange. Almost the opposite of anyway that you would want to live.

Lisa, you are right, it has a fast-forward part but there is a constat perverse discusion about sex with his brothers. They openly talk and laugh about things like running up and groping women in public, among other things.

Scott, the one good part of the film was when Crumb was on a street just sketching people he saw.
