Sophie Crumb and Robert Crumb on NPR

Illustration by Sophie Crumb from Evolution of a Crazy Artist

Robert Crumb and his daughter Sophie Crumb spoke with Neal Conan on on NPR’s Talk of the Nation program today to discusses her art, her new book, Evolution of a Crazy Artist, and her relationship with her parents. From the web edition’s write-up:

 

Sophie Crumb grew up in a family of artists — her parents, Robert Crumb and Aline Kominsky-Crumb, are two of the most famous graphic artists in the world. So it’s only natural that she found herself gravitating toward their profession as early as the age of 2.

Her new book, Sophie Crumb: Evolution Of A Crazy Artist, is a collection of her work up to age 28. She and her father tell NPR’s Neal Conan about collaborating on her book and life in the Crumb household.

Sophie Crumb features a comprehensive collection of Sophie’s drawings, and that was no accident.

“My dad is a compulsive archivist,” she says. “He was into them, so I kind of did them to make him laugh.”
