Robert Crumb helped define cartoon and punk subcultures of the 1960s and 1970s with his subversive comic strips. His distinctive style of drawing is influenced by both his career as a commercial illustrator and his extensive use of LSD. His drawings offer a satirical critique of modern consumer culture, and frequently seem to possess an outsider’s perspective — a self-conscious stance which Crumb often relates to his personal life.
