    Robert Crumb - Placemat Drawing Original Art (2013). In more recent years, legendary Underground Comix artist Robert Crumb has developed a habit of whipping out his mechanical ink pen whenever he goes out to dine, sketching on his paper placemats. Here is such a placemat, from a Sauve, France restaurant (La Comptoir de l'Evesque), measuring about 11.5" x 10.75". This one includes three ink sketches (with a little whiteout), presumably of Robert's fellow diners; one is a raving lunatic, one is an annoyed wife, and the the third image is of a man who is thinking, "Sure as shittin' they're gonna screw it up..." (his dinner, maybe?). The figures measure 6", 3", and 4" tall, with some additional lettering. Crumb Placemat drawings are highly prized, and food stains are considered an extra bonus; yes, this one has a few. Overall condition is Very Good. From the Eric Sack Collection.
