"In 2015, Robert illustrated a portrait of Skip James for his friend John Heneghan in exchange for some rare 78's. I saw the portrait this year for the first time (a customer sent the image to me requesting we create some kind of edition with it). I immediately called Robert and asked when he drew it, why, etc. After he told me the history of the portrait, I told him it was an amazing drawing. Crumb said, "Yeah, I like the way it turned out." We both agreed it would make an excellent etching edition. John Heneghan was kind enough to scan the original art and send it to me so we could begin with crystal clear artwork. We printed the edition in May, then sent it to France in early June where it was signed by Crumb. "
