No Fun City

This is a poster I made for our Waterfront train station. A few of us were each given a nickname for Vancouver, I was given “No Fun City”. You can view it larger here.

  • Haha, i love this! it’s great how he continues to glare at the cat, as if it summoned the poop bird.

    :) i just glimpsed at it briefly…thought, oh cool design. then I “read the story”. so good! While they are repeated, the cat’s eyes seem to change with the mouth expressions. I like it!

    • steven

      what do you use to make these kind of drawings? computer? marker?

      • i drew it out and then re-drew it in illustrator

  • haha this is really great!!!

  • Bruce

    Jeff, why would Vancouver have a theme of no fun? Maybe some people may think of Fort St John but Vancouver??? Great comic panel!

    • i believe we originally got the reputation due to some laws regarding noise and it became an issue with music venues – we’ve done a good job of shedding this reputation so i kind of poked fun at it

  • It’s so “calm”. Like it :D
