I’m nothing if not ironic – a graphic artist who knows next to nothing about art. But hey, I know what I like… and I like the pop art stylings of Shag and the nostalgia of Disneyland. So on my visit this weekend, I dipped into my savings just a bit and snagged two great pieces of Shag art commemorating the 40th anniversary of The Haunted Mansion!
First, “Goulish Delights”, of which I was lucky enough to get number 6 of a limited run of 200…
And then, because there’s always room for one more, there’s “A Dismaying Observation:”
As I pocketed my Amex and carried out the huge boxes, I could hear the staff of the Disney Gallery calling after me, plaintively… “Hurry back! Hurry back! Be sure to bring your credit card! Make final arrangements now…”
