“Portland is the city where young people go to retire”

The above print comes from Gregg Gordon in a series dedicated to iconic cities. Check out his site, his style has a unique sense to it in the sense that the prints have a strong silkscreen feel to them. The hard lines combined with variety of colors and negative space remind me of the steps one thinks about before laying out a design to be silkscreened. The title for this post comes from the following show below. Not all people in Portland are lazy, it looks like a cool town where you can eat crazy donuts and coffee before you throw away your map and get lost in the city. Or until you get kicked out for a negative comment about Ohio and have to go live in the wilderness filled with moss covered rocks and make friends with a brown bear named Cody.
