Get Out, Arizona's Premier Entertainment Guide, has an article online - "Local artist has turned the feel of the ’50s into an industry."
Best part - "He's even the subject of a coffee table book due in September from Chronicle Books. “One of my gallery owners said he was going to a publishing show and he thought a book would be a good idea,” Shag says. “He came back with three or four offers,” which astounded the artist."
Here's hoping it's one of those bang-zoom comprehensive type coffee table books!
(Thanks to Google News for the hit...)
Here's a link to Shag's contribution to Copro Nason & Track 16 Galleries' "The Eye of the Illuminati" Group Show. No idea what the title is - anyone out there have the info?
"Infernal Intentions" opens at Phoenix, AZ's Perihelion Arts this Friday, 04 Mar 05. They sent an e-mail out yesterday stating that some of the items are still available for sale, they can be reached here.
