    This is a shot of Crump's brother in SF shot in the early 80's. I didn’t know it at the time but after seeing a documentary, I recognized him. I believe he is a convicted rapist.

    I've still got a box of the old comics somewhere. I looks like he imbibed WAY too many chemicals. Kind of got that Thorazine look to him.

    First of all, the name is CRUM. The cartoonist you refer to is R. Crum. Real name: Robert Crumb. But in early days, he signed as R. Crum.

    Do you "believe" or do you "know"? Do you have documentation? I don't think we should be putting out rumours on the net. If this was my site, I'd remove your post. Not my call, unfortunately.

    More importantly, why put R. Crum's name up there in association with something someone else may have done, brother or not? Crum was a great cartoonist and neither he nor his art should be tainted by the behaviour (or looks) of someone else, whether real or imagined! Guilt by association? IMO, there's an ethical issue here, and it ain't R. Crum's.

    Respectfully,

    P.S. I agree with cropping the top of the pic down to the dark part past the metal bar. Also, he doesn't look particularly weird to me aside from the fact that most people (in this country, anyway) don't sit full lotus on the sidewalk in full view. BTW, if that is R. Crum's brother, it may indeed be the one who committed suicide. Why not let him rest in peace?

    Here's a wonderul example of R. Crum's work called "A Short History of America":

    I knew it was a matter of time before someone made a comment like yours. He admitted to it in the documentry, but I dont know if he was convicted. See the movie.

    Who said anythning about the artist himself? I love his old work, so 60's. His brother just happens to be a scumbag. Don't be so PC![/quote]

    Actually, I've seen the documentary, some time ago and more than once.

    Who said anythning about the artist himself? I love his old work, so 60's. His brother just happens to be a scumbag. Don't be so PC![/quote]

    and
    Isn't this mentioning the artist? And why was that necessary? Couldn't you just post the photo for c&c on it's own? Or did you feel the need to "rub shoulders with celebrity" by mentioning the name of the artist along with the pic. BTW, WHAT did you say the brother's (YOUR subject) name was?

    Oh, and "Don't be so PC?" What? Can you say that in actual non-abbreviated English? I'm afraid I didn't understand. :roll:

    Just one other thing: Did you ever get a signed release to publish this photo of this person? Just curious!

    PC = Politically Correct. It's a pretty well known acronym.

    It's called fair use. You only need a model release to use it commercially.
