Raymond Pettibon LA Punk Fliers

February 24, 2010




Staying in the early 80s, here are some old LA punk scene fliers by artist Raymond Pettibon, brother of Black Flag guitarist Greg Ginn.  A respected figure in the international art world for many years now, Pettibon’s  work has remained similar throughout – cartoonish scenes of dysfunction, sex, and violence, like hippie soap opera nightmares – though its interesting to see his drawings in this early context. Later he fell out with his brother Greg, who continued to use his drawings without permission, cutting and pasting (and effectively destroying) originals to create hundreds of xerox copies.
