R. Crumb interview

Robert Crumb Interview via Boingboing:

If you've never seen the movie Crumb, really, you won't get a good idea of who Robert Crumb is from this interview. The best way to describe it is, it's a walk through who Crumb is, via his surroundings and his life, rather than through himself. Crumb is a pretty private person, so it's hard to get a grasp on why cartoonists dote on him; his artwork is good, but there's better. It's more his subjects: a kind of a walk through the most primal and most screwed-up parts of a person's world-view, a Boschian filter placed before what he sees. And it works, for whatever reason. Either way, check out the article.
