Good grief! If you aren't nervous about someone seeing what you're looking at in this book while you sit and stare at it on a park bench on a pleasant day, you've got bigger balls than I do. R. Crumb describes Wilson's art best in the introduction: "folk art, old-time tattoos, a demented high school hot rod's notebook drawings."

To see it is to beleive it - Wilson lays it all out there form the vantage pooint of the the inimitable Checkered Demon - from bikers to pirates, if you're a fan of R. Crumb, Spain Rodriguez and their ilk you'll find CD's expoits entertaining, if you don't know what I'm talking about best ferget it :-/

Very unusual and very graphic art. Not a style I enjoy but a nice book of selected pieces of this artist's work. Recommended
