I Have Seen the Crumb

Good ol' R. Crumb. I just finally saw the documentary whut bears his name. I've never been a huge fan, but I'm coming around. Above is an example of the stuff of his I dig, but I have trouble with his seventies-ish post-psychadelic sexual-preversion type stuff. Regardless, his purity of expression is inspiring, that creation of something different, progressive, experimental, and such. You know, as opposed to the conservative adherence to a style of drawing or a way of setting up a joke. Food for thought.
