My homage to R. Crumb's famous image that always seemed to be in the background of my childhood.
My parents loved his work especially Mr Natural. You can see and buy a print from his official website here. R. Crumb might have been inspired by Blind Boy Fuller's 1936 Truckin' My Blues Away.
I hope this necklace which comes with a choice of nine 1970s-inspired colours will help to truck your own blues away during lockdown ...
