Photos + MP3, Frye Art Museum Crumb Comics Forum

Comics Forum, R. Crumb's Underground, Frye Museum, 03/27/08

More Flog! Photo Friday, this time with audio! Last night at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, moderator Gary Groth was joined by Peter Bagge, Ellen Forney, and Jim Woodring for a lively discussion about Robert Crumb and a range of related topics. More photos can be seen on Flickr, in regular and slideshow styles.

Plus! Download the complete audio of this event (24.5 MB MP3). It's a bit low-fi, but mostly intelligible. (We are still working on bringing you a full-fledged podcast... stay tuned for that.) We've also archived this feature on our website at this page.

Jeremy Eaton wrote up the big Crumb show here in town for the Beacon Hill News. Nice piece, better than any of the major media coverage I've seen.

Forney on Crumb Show
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert CrumbEllen Forney 31 Jan 2008 10:16 AM

Over at the Stranger's website, our own Ellen Forney has teamed up with the Stranger's Kelly O to talk about the R. Crumb show that just opened at the Frye Museum here in Seattle. I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but I will be listening and so should you. 

I could go on and on about how great the Crumb exhibition is, but simply put, it might be the greatest comic art exhibition I've ever seen and if you like comics enough to read this blog and are anywhere near Seattle, you're out of your mind if you don't make a special trip to the Frye in the next two months.  

And speaking of Forney, we have this to look forward to next Saturday, Feb. 9:

Visiting our office earlier today:

"Seeing that exhibit silenced a gong that's been ringing in my head for 45 years."

R. Crumb's Underground exhibit opening, Frye Museum, Seattle, 01/25/08

Our Eric Reynolds made the scene at the Frye Museum for the gala opening of "R. Crumb's Underground" and has the photos to prove it -- click here for the whole set on Flickr.

I also uploaded a few of Eric's photos from Ellen Forney's talk at Comixtravaganza -- see those here.

The Conversation Series: R. Crumb
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Crumb 22 Jan 2008 10:44 AM

I just picked up this neat little book that I hadn't heard a thing about: The Conversation Series Vol. 1: R. Crumb & Hans Ulrich Obrist. I've only just started reading; it's small, 50-page chapbook featuring the transcript of an interview conducted with Crumb in Paris a couple years ago by the curator and editor Hans Ulrich Obrist. I'm only five pages in, but I can already recommend it, beginning as it does with a great discussion about the sorry state of contemporary architecture and how we got here. It's somehow reassuring to know that Paris is just as fucked as my neighborhood in Seattle when it comes to tearing down history so we can have more soulless condo complexes and big box retailers.


Johnny Ryan, are you reading?
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert CrumbChris Ware 9 Jan 2008 12:58 PM

The New Yorker has announced a contest inviting cartoonists to design their own version of the magazine's mascot, Eustice Tilly (originally designed in 1925 by Rea Irvin for the very first issue). My favorite Tilly probably has to be the above Crumb version, which was perceived as a blasphemous betrayal of the mag's proud tradition by some of its more calcified subscribers when originally published in 1994. Now it's a decade and a half later and folks like Crumb, Aline Kominsky, Chris Ware (see his Tilly below), Adrian Tomine, and Daniel Clowes are fairly regular contributors to the mag. Mouly and Spiegelman, what hath thou wrought?!

Crumb & Schulz: expensive
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Robert CrumbPeanutsclassicsCharles M Schulz 6 Dec 2007 11:52 AM


Via Spurge come some record-breaking auction results: Charles Schulz's original art for the Sunday, April 10, 1955 Peanuts strip recently sold for $113,525, and Robert Crumb's original cover of Mr. Natural #1 sold in the same auction for $101,575, the first time either artist has cleared 6 figures.

For about 0.025% of its sale price, that same Schulz strip can be had, along with 730 others, in The Complete Peanuts 1955-1956. Just saying.
