"My train drawings are about bringing the continent, the shores, together, about going west. At that time we still had vast frontiers left, so it’s about the opportunity of escape. Even when I was a kid, when I heard the train at night I wasn’t necessarily aching to run away from home and find my fortune elsewhere, but I guess every American kid had that somewhere in his mind, kind of embedded. Like the equivalent of running off and joining the circus."

- Raymond Pettibon
