One of first my encounters to american culture in young age was comic, Tom&Jerry,Popeye,normal kids stuff.It's just the way animation moved and its expression, bold lines, color combination,,just everything was so different from japanese comic and animation back then.
Funny thing that it seems like people overseas admire Japanese comic and animation now. don't get me wrong, I like some of those stuff too.
First time I notice Robert Crumb's work was Janice Joplin's Cheap Thrills.. good album..
greatest album cover. Back when I wanted to know about this cover art, There was NO such thing as to google Robert Crumb.. It wasn't long till art school student friend
showed me some book of his work.
I just love his work. I would like to have my vinyl Cheap Thrills autographed by him,,
