    Description

    Robert Crumb - Mr. Snoid Sketch Original Art (circa 1970). This amusing little sketch of R. Crumb's devilish Mr. Snoid character comes to us by way of an unsung hero of the Underground. Graphic artist Don Lewis was present at the birth of the Underground newspaper movement in the mid-1960s, first in Chicago, and later in New York City, where he acted as the Art Director for the infamous East Village Other. It was at the EVO that several of the Underground cartoonists began their careers, including Spain Rodriguez and Kim Deitch. Crumb himself contributed three classic covers to EVO, and while there sketched this piece in ink onto a green packing tag. It's not signed, but the art style is unmistakably Crumb. The tag measures approximately 2" x 4.25", with an image that's 3" tall. In Excellent condition, framed with an old journal cover.
