Raymond Pettibon’s writings embraced the expanse of social-media digital technology while allowing a more intimate glimpse at the artist. Between February 2011 and February 2021, Pettibon posted something in the region of eighteen thousand digital comments on Twitter.

SCKONTHIS!!, Tuff Luyv, and my fists r free are 3 books based on the entire transcripts that appear here for the first time.

This eclectic collection demonstrates the range of Pettibon’s thinking as he embarks on an artistic enlightenment project. Pettibon’s digital writings reveal the artist in a creative-informal rather than critical-formal mode. They flesh out ideas elucidated in his artworks, none of which are represented here.

The twits cover topics as varied as golf, oral, life, and art history—subjects chosen at random for broad appeal andexamined with passion and insight.

Raymond Pettibon’s (b. 1957) influential oeuvre engages a wide spectrum of American iconography variously pulled from literature, art history, philosophy, religion, politics, sports, and alternative youth culture, among other sources. Intermixing image and text, his drawings engage the visual rhetorics of pop and commercial culture while incorporating language from mass media as well as classic texts by writers such as William Blake, Marcel Proust, John Ruskin, and Walt Whitman.

PCP Press has been a publisher of Avant-Garde art books and insurgent authors since ’69.

Meet LG Williams: Artist — Shoutout LA, April 29

Meet LG Williams: Artist
April 29, 2021 — SHOUTOUT LA / VOYAGELA — Sarah Abrams


We had the good fortune of connecting with LG Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below:

LG, what is the most important factor behind your success / the success of your brand?

“At the Enchanted Hunters Senior Retirement Village (overlooking Forest Lawn atop the Hollywood Hills), I’ve now scrapped Post-Performative Art—to become ‘The Distinguished AARP Resident of Neo-Post-Performative Art.’ I’m thrilled. By the way, this artistic accolade is one of the most unusual and elevated leisure distinctions found in today’s expansive Senior Living communities. I finally feel I can make my dreams and passions come alive. I’ll tap into my unlimited creative potential after Bingo night in this vital role—just like in the Hollywood movies…”

The Critics Speak…Reviews of Wally Hedrick Uninfluencer: A Forgotten Generation. A Review of Wayne Thiebaud Influencer at Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

— 

—  “I finished reading this rubbish. Predictably, it ends with LG attempting to sell his [art]work!”

—  “This [missive] is basically a cold-call sales pitch masquerading as a critical response.”

—  “I hope [this] gets the attention it deserves: none.”

—  “LG’s purported “successes”…are either inflated or outright concocted!”

—  “I could expand, but, honestly, it would be a waste of everyone’s time!”

—  “[LG] is a sick individual with delusions of grandiosity.”

—  “[LG] is raging mad…”

—  ★ ★

—  “[LG] is haughty, arrogant and offensive, but ultimately pathetic. Oh, he’s a grifter, too.”

—  “I actually feel sorry for [LG], but even more so for the people who live in fear [of LG] and might be manipulated by [his] disinformation.”

—  “[LG has] been spamming me since ’69!”

—  “Entertaining and funny…”

—  “True (unfortunately)”.

Voyage LA Magazine / LG Williams: Hollywood Hidden Gem

Hollywood Hidden Gem: LG Williams


LG, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist:

I’m originally from the Ozarks. Back then, I loved crafting a bit more than bass fishing. So, after art school, I hitchhiked to Los Angeles. That decision was a no-brainer — which was good since I had little extra to spare. What I didn’t know back then was this: Every Hollywood hipster can spot poor, destitute country folk — like me — a mile away. That’s probably one reason why, after all these years, I’ve never been invited to exhibit art in Tinseltown. Another reason might be that my “story” has been anything but unique. On the contrary, it registers as irrelevant by any Southern California  metric…
