    Description

    Robert Crumb Whiteman Meets Bigfoot Unpublished Illustration Original Art (1977).
    In 1977, TV commercial director, musician, and Underground Comix fan Boyd Jacobson wrote a screenplay for a film he hoped to direct himself, based on R. Crumb's classic "Whiteman Meets Bigfoot" story, from the 1971 comic Home Grown Funnies. Jacobson persuaded Crumb to do a new set of drawings to illustrate the expanded screenplay (that, alas, never saw completion). This "first encounter" piece is in ink and light graphite on vellum paper, with an image area of approximately 8.25" x 9.5". This piece is not signed, but was personally verified by Crumb as by his hand, in a 2010 phone call to Heritage. This one has a lot of power in the startled expressions and dramatic shadowing, and is in Excellent condition.
