In the studio : visits with contemporary cartoonists by M. Todd Hignite( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These studio visits with some of today's most popular and innovative comic artists present an unparalleled look at the cutting edge of the comic medium. The artists, some of whom rarely grant interviews, offer insights into the creative process, their influences and personal sources of inspiration, and the history of comics. The interviews amount to private gallery tours, with the artists commenting, now thoughtfully, now passionately, on their own work as well as on the works of others." "The book is generously illustrated with full-color reproductions of the artists' works, including some that have been published and others not originally intended for publication, such as sketchbooks and personal projects. Additional illustrations show behind-the-scenes working processes of the cartoonists and particular works by others that have influenced or inspired them. Through the eyes of these artists, we see with a new clarity the achievement of contemporary cartoonists and the extraordinary possibilities of comic art."--Jacket

Strips, toons, and bluesies : essays in comics and culture( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Comics are typically thought of as "low" art. While the latest Garfield or Boondocks Sunday strip might be a common topic around the breakfast table or water cooler, it is rarely considered material for more serious study. Strips, Toons, and Bluesies: Essays in Comics and Culture gives comics the serious attention they deserve. Rather than focusing on punch lines, this book celebrates the visual and verbal riches comics have brought to both mass and marginalized societies. It shows how these works - from fifteenth-century woodcuts to Depression-era bluesies to contemporary zines - make statements about what is most important in their creators' lives." "The authors of Strips, Toons, and Bluesies address such key issues as the intertwined origins of comics and animation; the sex, violence, and taboo breaking of 200 years of underground comics, from Jack T. Chick to Chris Ware; the popular "Locas" stories of Jaime Hernandez's Love and Rockets; and the political and racial portrayals of African Americans in 1960s comics, including works by Stan Lee and R. Crumb. The book also includes a 25-page history of comics from 1380 to today, a thorough and novel approach to the genre."--Jacket
R. Crumb : de l'underground à la Genèse : Musée d'art moderne de la Ville de Paris, 13 avril - 19 août 2012 by R Crumb( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue de l'exposition présentée au Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris du 13 avril au 19 août 2012.0Auteur prolifique, Robert Crumb est une figure de la culture underground américaine, et probablement l'un des plus grands dessinateurs de ces 50 dernières années. Son oeuvre a marqué le monde de la BD américaine et française, et tous s'accordent à voir en Crumb celui a changé le dessin par son trait, d'une énergie et d'une densité sans égales. Né en 1943, il commence très tôt à dessiner des albums de bandes dessinées inspirés de comics animaliers. Dès les années 70 il entreprend une production autobiographique dans laquelle il raconte sans pudeur ses obsessions, ses angoisses, ses relations avec les femmes, ou encore sa passion pour le jazz des années 20. Le catalogue retrace le parcours graphique de Crumb depuis ses premiers dessins dans les revues Help!, Zap et Weirdo, jusqu'aux planches de son dernier album La Genèse, une adaptation littérale du 1er livre de la Bible, en passant par ses carnets inédits
