"This fascinating, fully detailed illustration comes from one of Robert Crumb’s pet projects that unfortunately never got off the ground. Crumb has always had a certain fondness for the giant "Yeti" woman character featured in his classic comics story, "Whiteman Meets Bigfoot" (originally published in the seminal Underground Home Grown Funnies, in 1971). In 1977, an attempt was made by a friend of Crumb’s to create a film on this wild woman of the hills who enters the “real” world, but it wasn’t until ten more years that Crumb himself, with his film-making pal Terry Zwigoff, would tackle an updated version of this project with gusto. Here’s a fine concept illustration of the big gal after experiencing life among the so-called civilized crowd, now looking quite punkish and indulging in all sorts of things one would never find back in the forest. The film project was ultimately shelved after a similar production, Harry and the Hendersons, was released, so this magnificent illustration stayed hidden until it was finally published in the 2001 Odds & Ends book. As far as Robert and Terry’s film project, it continued, but with a different subject matter. The final version became the award-winning bio pic, Crumb.” (via)
