Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1991 by Alaska Northwest, this book introduced a new audience to the often edgy, always observant and colorful fish art made semi-famous by the T-shirts and cards hauled out of the Northwest by fans of this Ketchikan artist. The mysteries of the deep, the strange, the hideous and the wonderful all appear on the canvas and in the words of this highly original, wacky work. Full-color throughout.

About the Author

From his treetop studio in Ketchikan, Alaska, RAY TROLL draws and paints fishy images that migrate ’round the globe into museums, onto T-shirts, and into books. Basing his “out of the ooze and born to cruise” images on the latest scientific research, Ray brings street smarts to the world of ichthyology and paleontology. Previous collaborations with Brad Matsen include PLANET OCEAN and SHOCKING FISH TALES. Ray and his wife, Michelle, have two kids.

BRAD MATSEN has been a merchant seaman, charter pilot, and commercial fisherman, and is currently the senior editor of National Fisherman magazine. He is the author of several books about the Northwest and a documentary for PBS. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
