    "Thinking of You is a scrapbook, a diary, perhaps even a pillow book, of intimate meditations on the many moods of that particularly sensitive motif – the phallus. This beautifully printed and bound book was produced in conjunction with California-based artist Raymond Pettibon's premiere North American museum exhibition at the Renaissance Society in 1998. His show featured over 500 drawings stylistically derived from cartoons, West Coast punk, B movies and tabloid melodramas. Captioned with quips and adages inspired by an amalgam of literary sources – William Blake, Gumby, Charles Manson, Batman, the Bible, etc. – the drawings are always exquisite, street-dealing a Viagra for the soul. Sometimes provocative, comical, even poetic..." - The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago
