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.

    :) 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!

    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
