Creative Designs – Robert Crumb

Cartoonish, exaggerated forms applied with unflattering realism (wrinkles, skin-folds, blemishes, etc. )  The character’s features and clothing are typically scraggly and dishevelled.  Flakey Foont takes a classic toon design and contrasts it with stubble, skin-folds, etc.  creating a simultaneous sense naivete and witheredness.  Robert Crumb’s self portrait utilizes cartoonish wobbly limbs to communicate an intense sense of unease and tension.
