Raymond Pettibon’s writing embraced the expanse of social-media digital technology for his art 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!! is 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 rants reveal the artist in a creative-informal rather than critical-formal mode. The twits cover topics as varied as golf, oral, life, and art history—subjects chosen at random for broad appeal and examined with passion and insight.
