Robert Dennis Crumb (born August 30, 1943), often credited simply as R. Crumb,         
is an American artist and illustrator recognized for the distinctive style of           
his drawings and his critical, satirical, subversive view of the American               
mainstream. He currently lives in Sauve, France.                                       
Crumb was a founder of the underground comix movement and is regarded as its           
most prominent figure. Though one of the most celebrated of comic book artists,         
Crumb's entire career has unfolded outside the mainstream comic book publishing         
industry. One of his most recognized works is the "Keep on Truckin'" comic,             
which became a widely distributed fixture of pop culture in the 1970s. Others           
are the characters Devil Girl, Fritz the Cat, and Mr. Natural.
