    Description

    Robert Crumb Fritz the Cat and Vampire and Other Characters Sketchbook Page Original Art (1960). Underground Comix pioneer Crumb figured out early on that "when I'm not drawing, I'm nothing," as he has often said. So he drew, and drew, and drew some more, all the way through a 1960s breakthrough to present-day acclaim as one of the Great American Artists. This early-day page of school-workbook paper includes Crumb's most famous early creation, Fritz the Cat, originally known as Fred the Cat. A scary-looking vampire is unusual, inasmuch as Crumb seldom draws horror-type characters. Signed at lower right. Additional sketches appear on reverse. This page measures approximately 7" x 8.5". Moderate age-toning. Very Good condition.
