Straight for the sculpture | Anyone order a Robert Crumb statue?

The eyes ... they follow me wherever I go ...

The eyes ... they follow me wherever I go ...

For the past eight years, Seattle-based artist Michael Leavitt has created a series of sculpted figures of famous artists and entertainers like Andy Warhol, David Byrne, David Lynch and so forth. Now he’s made one of comics legend and Bible adapter Robert Crumb:

This fully articulated wood-carved sculpture was commissioned by an out-of-state collector. Before it ships off to the private collection, the piece will be put on public display at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery for one night only during the reception for Gahan Wilson on Saturday, February 13. If you can’t make it then, you can view Leavitt’s recent work, including collaborations with Fantagraphics friend Charles Krafft, at Stolen Space Gallery in London May 13 through May 30.

Great work on Mike’s behalf! Mike should have launched the statue’s release to coincide with the release of Genesis…well, pretty close I have to say! But keep up the good work. I can be mentioned on Robert Crumb Cartoons if you wish, just dop a line if you are interested and keep up the great sculpting! Excellent!
