Gary Panter exposes his inner thoughts and workings with the first of a three-volume sketchbook series.

What makes the original punk rock artist tick? In what will be a three-volume series, Satiro-Plastic is Gary Panter’s sketchbook from December 1999 to November 2001. This fascimile edition of the pocket sketchbook diary shows the everyday creative spasms of this iconic designer-painter-cartoonist-illustrator.

In his introduction, Panter explains the first rule of the madness of his sketchbook: the pages and drawings are not in chronological order. Scenes from a family vacation to Oaxaca, Mexico; Brooklyn still lifes; and 9/11 images are interspersed with comics and illustrations buzzing with excitement and manic genius.
