Something Fishy This Way Comes: The Artwork of Ray Troll Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Artist Ray Troll has developed a huge cult following for his humorous and scientifically accurate paintings of fish and fossils. He has successfully carved out his own category of artwork using colorful pen and ink to create drawings about fish, fish worship, evolution, and dinosaurs, all humorously captioned and technically accurate. Over a three-decade career, he has exhibited in all major scientific museums in America and managed to sell over 2 million t-shirts along the way. This collection of the artist's most popular t-shirt art features captions such as "Spawn Till You Die," "Cowasockeye," "The Baitful Dead," "Fish Worship: Is It Wrong," and "Tortured Sole," Ray Troll's appeal is both funky and funny.

Book News Annotation:

This book of full-page color plates surveys a rich artistic career, with many designs well known from the t-shirts they decorate. The Alaskan artist, whose genius lies in the puns and fishcentric correctives on human life and famous works of art he works into each image, paints colorful scenes ruled by lively and precisely observed salmon, halibut, trout, whales, cod, and other kingly fish.
