The vibrant intensity of TROG’s art will take hold like a psychedelic high, sending the reader on a visual hallucinogenic head trip into a wacky world of stoner toons. TROG creates thought provocative art that comes to life, stimulates the mind in a profound way, and connects with stoners. The Cooked Book is a 120-page, visual journey of TROG’s trippy cannabis inspired artwork from 2004 to 2014. The highly-acclaimed artist, TROG, has shared some of his favorite pieces from his Wasted Canvas collection and artwork he has drawn for 420 event posters, album covers, band merchandise and posters, cannabis brand posters and product packaging, and marijuana magazine covers.
“Australian artist TROG’s evocative artwork is both a blast from the past and a vision of the future. His work vaguely reminds me of a marriage between the works of Big Daddy Ed Roth and 60’s poster icon Rick Griffin. TROG’s frenetic, turbulent imagery seems to come alive before your eyes as the colors jump off the canvas to grab you. Any fan of abstract, psychedelic poster art should have a TROG piece in their collection,” Vivian McPeak, Seattle Hempfest
