Many moons ago, as an undergraduate in Northampton, Massachusetts, I had the unique opportunity to intern at the oldest comic book publisher in the country, Kitchen Sink Press. As a “production assistant,” I handled all sorts of tasks, including paste-ups (does anyone remember these)?
My love for cartoons and graphics stem from childhood: watching my dad doodle on his prescription pad while calming down a frantic mother, gabbing about “X-Men vs The Avengers” with my brother. So, it’s no coincidence that two movies I adore as an adult involve the world of graphics: “American Splendor” and “Crumb.”
And growing up, I wanted to be a cartoonist.
So how could I not stock R. Crumb’s reissued (and sought-after by collectors) music trading cards? Denis Kitchen (of the now defunct Kitchen Sink Press) has brought these portable pieces of art+music+information back to life. Thank heavens. Check out miomia’s R. Crumb offerings by clicking on the links below.
