Our Portland Story, Volume One!

Justin & I contributed to an awesome book called Our Portland Story.  Founded by Melissa Delzio, she describes it best: "Our Portland Story Volume 1 is part yearbook, part insider’s travel guide, and part collected memoirs, but is all about Portland by Portlanders." A total of 77 authors and 68 designers contributed. Kudos Melissa! We attended it's release party a couple of weeks ago and got our hands on a copy!

Here's the story we wrote about the legendary & wacky Voodoo Doughnut. We ended our story with a quote from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, "San Dimas High School Football Rules!". Brittany Hanson, a fellow dMobber, illustrated and designed the page.

I've been wanting to share the illustration and design that I did for the book with you for many many months. Remember when I gave you a sneak peek? Well now you can see it as a whole! The story was written by a big fan of the Tualatin River. I had so much fun drawing wildlife illustrations and collaging it with the author's photo.

I loved the messages addressed to Portland that are included within the book, kinda like a high school yearbook.
