To celebrate Wieden+Kennedy Founders’ Day we have invited Illustrator and former W+Ker Michael Illick to cover our gallery walls with his irreverent style and sense of humor.
Over a period of two days Michael has drawn an epic battle of The Clan of Dan vs. The Clan of David. From the east Dan’s band of mischievous monkeys pelt apple pie slices mercilessly towards Dave's band of Neanderthal oafs in the west. It is an ambitious composition of grand proportions. Michael calls it his Guernica, I call it the Lascaux of the Pearl.
Stop by and enjoy its overall grandeur, but also take time to look more closely and giggle at the cartoon antics of this remarkable cast of crazies.
Wondering why Riswold’s head is so big? You will find out in May, when his own WK12 clan takes over the space.
We have a new interactive creative director coming. We are all very excited for Iain Taits arrival. He was recently Interviewed in Boards magazine on his decision to leave his partnership and jump on board with us.
Brought back by Kiem Vu, Portland Digital Designer, from a recent trip to Vietnam. He thought this would help with the stress of work. Bring your own shot glass.
A message from John Jay
For those who yearn to see the big stars of international contemporary art in person and not just in a magazine or blog then make a stop at our
Portland Art Museum to see “Disquieted”.
For our little town to host such an all-star group of artists, to be curated from scratch and not simply a pick-up of an existing traveling show…
the collection is like a primer on who is who in contemporary art. To all of you who follow art, there may be nothing brand new…what’s new is that it all sits together here in Portland.
And many more
