    Description

    Robert Crumb - Original Illustration, "The Road to Success" (undated). Vintage Crumb commercial art; we see two Topps Chewing Gum salesmen talking to each other, with one looking as if he came from the Broadway production of "The Music Man". In his perfectionist way this piece, one of Crumb's first paying jobs, took a while to finish. He cut it apart and redid much of the lettering, to get it just right. There is tape at the top and the bottom edge of this piece and its overall size is 8" x 13".
