Land Ho’

Came across gallery space/book shop Land while in Portland last week. Picked up these animal portrait prints from illustrator Ryan Berkley, as well as a zine/catalog based on his last show called “What You’re Into,” where he interviewed his friends about their latest obsessions and penned the results. Amusing stuff.


1. Chewbacca 2. Sloth From Goonies 3. Falcor from The Never Ending Story

1. John Wayne 2. Bears 3. Pogo Sticks

1. Hungry Eyeball 2. Walking 3. Pinatas

Also grabbed a few notecards from artist Jill Bliss – one octopus-themed and one elk, to make up for me not seeing any of the wild steeds while exploring Oregon. After checking out her site I learned she works with vegetable-based inks on ‘reincarnation paper’ – which is like the even-holier version of ‘recycled’ (no chlorine, part consumer-waste).

Environmentally-friendly, nature-themed work. Go Portland. Well done.
