I have a special place in my heart for the hand painted lettering and graphic work on New York City's many home heating oil trucks you see in the winter. They're not vinyl. Entire trucks with hand lettering. Look up close next time.

A select retrospective of THE Robert Crumb at the Society of Illustrators in NYC come March 25th. Robert Crumb (b.1943) is considered the premiere underground comix artist of his generation (the 1960 acid-gobbling baby boomers generation). If you have little interest in underground comix and/or can't imagine trekking up to 63rd St. on a Friday night because–let's be honest–that's no-man's land, at least pop Crumb into your Netflix queue. It's both entertaining and intriguing as it turns from critical art documentary to just-a-wee-bit-disturbing psychological profile.
