Maxon Crumb (born 1945) is an American artist and the younger brother of underground cartoonist Robert Crumb. Maxon initially started painting as a way to deal with his own personal demons. However, he has subsequently come to utilize it to support himself, replacing his previous need to panhandle.
Maxon's early work can be found in works such as Weirdo, Liquidator, and Crumb Family Comics (Last Gasp, 1998). Since the publication of Maxon's Poe (1997) and HardCore Mother (2001) his first novel, his work has found a wider audience.
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.
