Josh Angle

Josh Angle, AKA Shag, draws these weird mod tiki landscapes. I've always loved them. I've heard people complain that Shag's work is repetitive and unimaginative, but for me, it's always been on the cutting edge of imagination. The simplicity of his pictures is deceptive, like snapshots in a complicated and subtly menacing story of desire and loss. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Anway, his new stuff is really cool and kind of a departure for him. I like it.

Big fan - we have some prints he did for Disneyland hanging in our living room.
