Robert Crumb - Self Portrait

Robert Crumb, born 1943 in Philadelphia, is an American artist, illustrator, and musician recognized for the distinctive style of his drawings and his critical, satirical, subversive view of the American mainstream. He became widely known in the 1960ies as an underground-comic-artist and as the creator of such bizarre characters as "Fritz The Cat" and "Mr. Natural". One of his most recent works is a graphical adaption of the "Book of Genesis".

Robert Crumb is without any doubt one of the most important and influential graphic artists of contemporary America and we still can not really believe that he contributed this artwork for our project. We are humbled.

Thank you, Mr Crumb!
