Herbs and Things
Shag is a leading light in contemporary hip art. Blending cartoon, tiki, and vintage illustrative sensibilities, Shag has garnered the attention of a legion of devoted fans and collectors who will delight in this new collection of his work. Shag's art looks back on the pop culture of the mid 20th century and blends it with a dose of modern irony, humor, and joy. An acolyte of Exotica, Tiki Culture, and cartoon illustration, Shag's work first looks retro, but on closer inspection is seen to be a loving exploration of the popular subconscious. This is the softcover edition.
