39. Crash and Daze

Alias: Chill 2

Neighborhood: The Bronx/Manhattan

Years Active: 1977-present

Crash and Daze were two great writers, famous for both style and characters. They make this list for being the first two writers to live the lives of professional artists - making money exclusively from their canvasses. It seems everybody has a chance to do it today, but back in 1980 when they began their gallery careers, the odds were stacked heavily against them.
