History of Robert Crumb in Comic Book Art

Robert Crumb is among the most prolific artists of the 20th century, beginning his professional career in 1962 drawing greeting cards for American Greetings in Cleveland, Ohio.

In 1965, Crumb had his first original character, Fritz the Cat, published in the men's magazine Cavalier. Around this time Crumb's work drastically changed after he began experimenting with LSD, leading him to create some of his most iconic characters such as as Mr. Natural, Snoid and Angelfood McSpade.

In 1967, Crumb relocated to San Fransisco to join the hippie counter-culture scene of the time, where he made many promotional concert posters and partook in a variety of underground comics and newspapers.

He began working on his own comic, Zap Comix, which saw a departure from the previous comics he'd made to entertain, to a more self-exploratory and dark new way of expressing himself through his work.

Zap Comix was a financial success and opened the door for Crumb to make a variety of new underground titles, like Weirdo Comics and Snatch Comics throughout the late sixties. Crumb also made several prominent album covers for bands of the counter-culture movement, such as Big Brother and the Holding Company and The Grateful Dead.

His work has continued through to the present with a style that is immune to imitation. Crumb is also revered for the sharp satirical edge that accompanies his artwork.

No stranger to controversy, the artist has been subject to several scandals over the years for his portrayals of perverse sexuality and dark human psychology. Nevertheless, he has won many awards and accolades over the years, including an Inkpot Award in 1989 and the Angoulême Grand Prix in 1999.

The sale of his original cover art for the Fritz the Cat collection sold for $717,000, making it the all-time highest sale price of any piece of American cartoon art.
