by sabine7 / July 11, 2005

Text is often a crucial element of the old-fashioned comic book stylings of Raymond Pettibon’s ink drawings. Gumby, the plasticine pop culture hero, is clearly a part of the Pettibon canon, along with an assortment of baseball players, surfers and trains. Pettibon, originally an economics student and then high school math teacher, launched his career as an artist in the world of fanzines and album covers, going on to draw upon a wide variety of literary sources, such as Henry James, Mickey Spillane, Marcel Proust, William Blake and Samuel Beckett, for inspiration.

Artist: Raymond Pettibon
