Robert Crumb’s illuminated version of Genesis
A favorite from my more perverted days — I’m saying they are behind me — Robert Crumb has once again shocked his audience. This time by not getting dirty but rather completing a 207 page word for word illuminated version of Genesis. The Hammer Museum in LA is currently exhibiting this Magnum opus. Crumb definitely did not rest on the 7th day, this epic undertaking is enough for one man’s life work, yet disturbingly enough is just one of his many. A quick side note, I saw Raymond Pettibon at the exhibit and even he was looking a little overwhelmed by the endless black frames of drawings, he still looked pretty damn cool though, too.
