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).
His first published novel, HardCore Mother (2000) was a study of incest and sadism. Since the publication of HardCore Mother (2001) 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.
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.
A sample of Maxon Crumb appears at the end of "Pony Ride" from De La Soul's 1996 album Stakes Is High— an excerpt from the documentary Crumb, in which Crumb discusses his struggle living on the streets, describing his periods of optimism and depression. While describing this situation, he remarks,"Stakes is high," giving the album its name.
