Addressing Alaskans: Ray Troll

“Wild king, you make my heart sing.”

“Ain’t no nookie like chinookie.”

“Coho ho. And humpy holidays.”

Try to explain a Ray Troll t-shirt from someone from Massachusetts or Missouri and see what happens. You’re Alaskan once you get salmon. And if you get salmon, you’ll understand a Ray Troll shirt. One of Alaska’s most well known artists, Ray Troll draws and paints fishy images that migrate into museums, books and magazines and onto t-shirts sold around the planet. This week on Addressing Alaskans, listen Ray’s talk at the 2010 Mat-Su Salmon Science and Conservation Symposium entitled “Salmon Are Cool”.
