Starring the very artists and musicians who supported Pettibon from the start, they are available here for the first time on DVD.

Red Tide Rising: Venice & Mars (2001) is a two-disc set that deals with the life of Jim Morrison.

According to the influential Los Angeles artist Mike Kelley, quoted in The New York Times Magazine, 'many of Raymond Pettibon's earliest supporters were artists. Some people liked Raymond because they considered him a guy who didn't kiss the butt of the art world. Others thought he represented punk, or blue-collar Conceptualism or D.I.Y. What interested me about him was how he constructed things--like Lautreamont, who's my favorite writer--with all these different sources juggled and combined into something particular. Raymond had that definite auteur look, which was faux-romantic, faux-Gothic, very Tennessee Williams, very foppishly funny.'
