Visual Affinities : Raymond Pettibon

Since my initial visual introduction to Raymond Pettibon
drawings on the albums of Black Flag records; I cannot stop
buying everything made endorsed by his art.

I most recently purchased this Jim Carroll novel, The Petting Zoo., strictly based on visual lust not knowing Carroll for his writing but now for his great taste in crude ink drawings. But Pettibon has not let me down...the book is nice telling a story of an artist. One heard many times about a life in question and in search of purpose. I am close to the end...ooooooouu.

And less recently he caught me off guard on grooveshark with the new Crystal Antlers record. The album is amazing; the art is beautiful. I've seen them perform and now own a limited edition record package. Effff.

He has not let me down this far so I figure I might as well accept
that I will not be leaving without purchasing that tote that I don't need. Pettibon rules.

The Spirit Was In His Eyes.

Spiriteyes formally known as Jarrod Bryan.
He is a rad dood and an inspiration to embrace
your inner spaz without hesitation. Aside from
that he is a well rounded creature of expression.
His mobile photos always have a great sense of awareness and I enjoy them always. And if there is one thing to be said it is that he has spirit.

Hell No Universe!!!

I was never afraid to say the words to a man...
Especially this man, Tony E. I love you brother.
Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.

He was the dude. Inspired me in many ways.

For Those Who Speculate...

Some spec work once made for a band of three in Paris. This is what came of it.


A classic. Pops you're the best.
Mama I love you too.
