I proudly can say I've got an autographed and numbered screen by R.Crumb now. It's a beautiful thing.

"This wrapper is a work of art created by R. Crumb that was sold in theaters when the "Crumb" documentary made its run. As I recall, the candy was pretty good, and how can you beat this wrapper?[B] I wish more artists did work like this, creating art as a product accessible to the masses in venues where one wouldn't ordinarily expect to find it.[B]"

That guy is so right!!!

>I wish more artists did work like this,

Nice sentiment Bruneau. I don't know about Belgium, but over here "the masses" don't want art, they want mindless entertainment. It's like saying you wish more Blues artists would get themselves on commercial radio. As if. Maybe we should take this Way Off Topic...

As for R. Crumb, he saved my sanity. When I stumbled over Mr. Natural and Flakey Foont in a head shop, way up and gone in the woods of northern Ontario, I finally knew I wasn't alone. Ever see that great documentary of him and his brother? Wow - scary sh!t.

Yes nizer I saw the Crumb documentary and as I can recall it was made
just before Crumb moved to the south of France.
As for the wrapper thing I once came up with the idea to do something with supermarkets or large food stores. Make packages, wrappers and so on. I don't have the ability to organize such a project, I'll talk about it with my gallerist.
It's the same here, people just want cheap entertainement. They call it reallity shows or something. People that want to loose weight, people who are not happy with the way they look, rich guys and 10 woman and so on and on...I think you know what i mean.

Something from R.Crumbs daughter.

She's very young and the influences of dad are still too clearly, but those will wear out.
She has a lot of talent.

That's a great one Bruneau. She's definitely got her dad's angst and black humor. Good post for Fathers Day.

I think I might have mentioned this before. If you're a Crumb fan, see the movie Ghost World. Crumb's daughter drew some of the art in it, and it has some great blues content.
