    Description

    Robert and Charles Crumb - Original Sketch Art (undated). One side of this sketch shows Robert Crumb's version of Jesus Christ, a frog in a hat and bowtie, and a man holding a gigantic plot of dirt over his head; the plot holds a giant tee and what looks like a golf ball, that has a window and a smaller man looking out of it. It's a pre-psychedelic slice of Robert Crumb's fertile imagination. The other side has several drawings by Robert's older brother, Charles. At the top is a picture of Robert and Charles playing chess, each chess piece has a very distinctive character drawn on the top. At the bottom is a small sketch by Robert of a cute, pimple-face girl, obviously drawn from life. Scattered throughout both sides are other tiny sketches by both brothers. This double-sided page is drawn in pencil by the Crumb brothers on a sheet of 6.75" x 8.5" note paper. The page shows some aging, but the art is clean and clear.
