It's $ 300 framed the way you see it . One unframed went for around $ 380 on Ebay a few weeks ago .

Buy it if you really like it, don't if you're having second thoughts. If it's just a money thing, then I say spend the cash if it is something you adore.

Dogbytes' looks amazing. I agree with her. Have Frame Fetish do it up right for you.

Its got tikis, birds, a Moaitender and two shriners...What else could you ask for? Definately a nice print at a good price. Not too long ago, we picked up Shag's "The Raft Of Medusa" print, soon to be making its way over to Links place at F.F......Good pick Sushi, if you go for it!

Here is a pic of the print from a Shag book . Why are the shriner's suits a different color ? I notice other minor differences as well . Is your print exactly like the one I am thinking about buying , or it like the one in the book ?

The book shows the original painting, the print was done with different colors.

If you can purchase this for $300, go for it. You can always sell it for more later if you don't like it.

I'm beginning to think this dealer in Tokyo is selling fakes . I've looked at dozens of Shag prints , inc. a couple just like the one I am interested in , and the G of Shag is always written thusly :



Compare this G to the one in my initial pic .




I'm seeing some other minute differences between the Tokyo print and pics of other HEAVY DRINKERS but they could be attributed to a variety of things inc. camera , light , etc...But this signature has got me wondering . What do you all think ?

Dude..... that looks suspicious! Those are VERY different G's! My three shags have the descending line down from the the curve. NOT the rounded pot bellied bubble. Call one of the art dealers that deals directly with him. Keep us posted!

Oh, the dealers in Tokyo. Well, then yes, I think there's a strong possibility you've got a fake on your hands. Given this bit of information, I'd steer clear of it, unless you can verify it's authenticity.

The sig definitely looks suspicious. The arch over the A looks funky too. Try writing Shag directly and send him that pic of the sig, he'll no doubt be able to tell right away if he did it or not. If he didn't, I'm sure he'll be interested to know there are fakes of his work starting to circulate. This is always dangerous stuff not only because it's taking money out of the original artist's pocket but also because if it's done shoddily and on crappy paper then it can damage his reputation if people confuse the fakes for the real deal.
