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.
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.
