So I just finished up some freelance work for the new store map of Powell’s City of Books here in Portland. I’m actually pretty excited, because the image is huge [18 x 23] and will take up the whole backside of the map. So if you’re in Portland at all in the next couple of years [until they decide to change up the design], you can pick up a makeshift poster and souvenir with my art on it! For free!

I thought it would be fun to share the image because there are references to Americus, literary & historical references, as well as numerous nerd references.

If you’re the hunting type, here’s a link to a large version of the image. There are exactly three references to Americus. Can you find them?
