Maxon crumb molesting story
Maxon Crumb (born 1945) is an American artist. He is the younger brother of underground cartoonist Robert Crumb and Charles Crumb, and the uncle of Sophie Crumb. He also had two sisters, Carol DeGennaro and Sandra Colorado (1946-1998), who was the widow of writer Marty Pahls, a friend of Robert Crumb. His parents are Charles Crumb and Beatrice Crumb.
Maxon was featured in the documentary Crumb.
Maxon initially started painting as a way to deal with his own personal demons. However, he has subsequently come to use it to support himself, replacing his previous need to panhandle.
Maxon's early work can be found in works such as Weirdo, Liquidator, Maxon's Poe (1997), and Crumb Family Comics (Last Gasp, 1998).
Paintings and ink drawings can take weeks or months to complete. During this time Maxon says that he will enter into an intense creative state where the work becomes paramount, to the detriment of normal everyday concerns including eating.
Maxon's drawings are available online as well as fine art limited edition prints.
Maxon practices celibacy and has done so for many years because, as he has explained in interviews, for him, sex triggers epileptic seizures.
