Here are some photos from last night's opening at The Society of Illustrators of the exhibit R. Crumb, Lines Drawn on Paper, curated by Monte Beauchamp. The show runs through April 30th, please check it out if you can. Well worth the trip to NYC if you're from out of town. More info here. "Robert Crumb (b. 1943) is considered the premiere underground comix artist of his generation. With only a smattering of issues and titles such as Zap, MotorCity, Head Comics, and Despair, Crumb deconstructed the American comic book, revolutionizing the form forever. Over four decades later, his impact continues to be felt worlwide.
This retrospective, curated by Monte Beauchamp, editor of The Life and Times of R. Crumb (St. Martin's Press), presents key pieces culled from the underground art collection of Eric Sack, with contributions from Paul Morris and John Lautemann."
