Digital inked line illustration of a crusty old cowboy ala Robert Crumb.
My first serious artwork attempts were created with an old dipping pen. This is kinda returning to my roots, though this illustration was created digitally. I used Autodesk Sketchbook on an iPad Pro to create it – drawing with an Apple pencil.
I was re-introduced to one of my first loves the other day. The American underground comic artist Robert Crumb. I was handed a his book: “R.Crumb’s Heroes of Blues, Jazz & Country” by a fellow musician and Crumb enthusiast. I didn’t know Robert Crumb was an outstanding musician too.
I had forgotten what a master Robert Crumb is. He’s still producing some of the finest comic art to be seen today. Robert may be getting on a bit but he’s still showing us young ‘uns how to be authentic and creative. As the saying goes: “Beware and old man in a young man’s game”.
A man after my own heart.
