That's the Way the Crumb Cooks

"Dealing  with being the daughter of 'The Genius,' " Sophie Crumb told the Philadelphia Inquirer, "messed with me  when I was a teenager, of course, when I was trying to create my  identity." Crumb is on the road promoting how one person (her) can grow up with a father, "[Who] can’t do anything, except draw and play. He can’t drive. He can’t  swim. He’s totally dyslexic. He’s left-handed. He can hardly see. He’s  practically blind; his glasses are an inch thick" (as she explained him to The New York Times).

Sophie Crumb: Evolution of a Crazy Artist (Slipcased, signed and numbered limited edition)Her autobiography in sketches, Evolution of a Crazy Artist, displays her work from her youngest days of drawing for her parents through her progression of a sketch artist into her late 20s. Quick summary: she's dealing better now.
