R. Crumb Likes the Thick Ladies

With regards to body type, I am a little on the THICK side. So I was thinking that if I was a cartoon character, I would probably look something like this drawing by R. Crumb:



R. Crumb, Monica Delivers the Pizza, 1998, ink, correction fluid on paper, 17" x 13-1/8"


BOOM!

Note: Fantastic chica ...lovemaegan photoshopped the MONICA name out in the picture above, and inserted my blog name.

If you want to watch a simply superb movie about R. Crumb, rent or buy this Terry Zwigoff movie: Crumb (Special Edition)

We saw an R. Crumb exhibit a few years ago and that guy has a lot of stuff floating around in his head that makes it on to paper, that's for sure!
