Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Travel bug photos in the logs are appreciated.  I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

artCrumbTruckin

I have already released series of art-themed travel bugs based on works I have seen in person.  I will continue the series mostly including work I simply admire.  There will also be famous works or works by famous artists that I otherwise do not particularly care for, but they are….well, famous.  My disdain extends to most Modern Art and a good amount from the Pop Art movement. 

Robert Dennis Crumb (born 1943) is an American cartoonist and musician who often signs his work R. Crumb. His work displays nostalgia for American folk culture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and satire of contemporary American culture.

Keep on Truckin is a one-page comic by Crumb.  It was published in the first issue of Zap Comix in 1968.  A visual riff on the lyrics of the Blind Boy Fuller song "Truckin' My Blues Away," it consists of an assortment of men, drawn in Crumb's distinctive style, strutting confidently across various landscapes.  The strip's drawings became iconic images of optimism during the hippie era of the 1960s.  Crumb was offered $100,000 by Toyota to reproduce the image for a Keep On Truckin' advertising campaign, but turned it down.

Popular creations of his from this era include countercultural characters such as Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural, and the images from his "Keep on Truckin'" strip. Following the decline of the underground in the mid-1970s, he moved towards biographical and autobiographical subjects while refining his drawing style, a heavily crosshatched pen-and-ink style inspired by late 19th- and early 20th-century cartooning.  Much of his work appeared in a magazine he founded, Weirdo (1981–1993), which was one of the most prominent publications of the alternative comics era.
