by Aline Kominsky Crumb
M Q Publications, 2007.
I was trying to think of a way to describe Aline Kominsky Crumb’s art, and then she went and described it perfectly herself:
I […] draw, erase, and scratch out some tortured looking image that clearly shows how much I am struggling with the medium. I honestly don’t think this makes my work less interesting, just very expressionistic and often very ugly.
In fact Crumb is so aware of her own work as an artist that I could skip reviewing the book and just pull quotes out of it to do the same job.
