Last month marked the debut of Forest For The Trees, a mural project in Portland, Oregon. The event was sort of a sister event to Pow! Wow!, and featured a whole lotta my friends: Erik Otto, Meggs, Rone, Madsteez, Sam Rodriguez, Kamea Hadar, and Yoskay Yamamoto among others.
You can watch a video re-cap of the event below, as well as a time-lapse of Rone painting the wall you see here.
After 25 years of secrecy, The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has revealed to Smithsonian Magazine that the show’s fictional town of Springfield was actually based in… wait for it… Oregon!
Eventhough I stopped caring about the show a long time ago it was my favourite show growing up and revealing this is almost blasphemy! What do you think?
