R. Crumb has illustrated the Book of Genesis. Five years in the making, this 224 page, hardcover book was released last week and currently ranks #7 in sales at R.Crumb and the Bible, not as odd a pairing as it at first seems. As a kid I always thought "Mr Natural" was kinda like a hip god. I think I will check this one out. The Sunday N.Y.Times has an insightful review here.

Many of my paintings' themes and imagery have their genesis in the stories of the Old and New Testament. Its impossible to shake the powerful archetypes contained therein. Below is the latest.
