I enjoy Coop's artwork. I don't have any Coop-inspired tattoos or examples of his work posted up around the house, but I think his style is visually stimulating (even without the sexual themes) and just plain fun. To me it screams 'cool' and takes me to a 'political correctness free' time of hot rods and pulp magazines.
The Big Fat One is, like it's title states, quite a thick sketchbook. It's acually quite a bit smaller in height and width than I was expecting, but it's far thicker than I imagined. There are numerous fun sketches in there, including sketched versions of popular Coop works. I just wish there were some finished color prints included...but I understand that this is not what this book is about. Overall, I'd say it's a quality publication, just be aware that's it's all black-and-white sketches and not much else.
