Last year on 9/11 Raymond Pettibon, had an art opening at Zwirner gallery in Manhattan. His show was political, humorous, and at the same time, scary. I was fortunate enough to meet him at this opening and even more blessed to have him scratch out a surfer doodle on the invite. He was laid back and easy going, beer in hand, dry, and approachable. What a great feeling to meet someone you really admire and not be disappointed. Definitely a hi-lite of last year. Thanks Raymond.
