Robert Crumb, American American artist and illustrator, was a founder of the underground comix movement and is regarded as its most prominent figure. Though one of the most celebrated of comic book artists, Crumb's entire career has unfolded outside the mainstream comic book publishing industry. One of his most recognized works is the "Keep on Truckin'" comic, which became a widely distributed fixture of pop culture in the 1970s. Others are the characters Devil Girl, Fritz the Cat, and Mr. Natural.
In the mid-1990s Crumb traded six of his sketchbooks for a townhouse in a small village in the South of France.

Crumb’s friend, Terry Zwigoff, filmed Robert and his family before they moved for the documentary “Crumb”.
