Artist Bio - Sophie Crumb Print

Sophie CrumbSophie Crumb was born in 1981 to Robert Crumb and Aline Kominsky-Crumb in Winters, California. As a child, her father read classic comics to her such as Little Lulu and Popeye. When she was 8 years old, her family moved to France. While attending high school there, her sketchbook was chosen to represent Enid Coleslaw’s art in the popular film Ghost World. Post-graduation, she went to circus school in Paris.

Crumb returned to the U. S., briefly residing in Berkeley, California while working at Comic Relief, before moving to Brooklyn, New York to apprentice as a tattoo artist with Adam Suerte. Her series Belly Button Comix, a mix of autobiography and characters she created such as Eddy Bear and Zozo and Zaza, is published by Oog and Blik overseas and by Fantagraphics in the U. S. She’s also contributed to Fantagraphics new anthology of up-and-coming artists, MOME, and her original art is for sale on her family’s website. In addition to her comics, Sophie has taught English to French students, gone to circus school, and worked in a comic book store.
