After about a dozen people recommended it to me, I finally watched Portlandia.
Given my tendency to personify inanimate objects (and given that I’d already drawn Portland’s bridges as if they were people), I think this drawing was a fairly inevitable result.
So, here we have Burnside Bridge putting a bird on Morrison Bridge. That is all.
I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Portland, Oregon this year.
Portland has a whole lot of bridges.
You all know I have this tendency to personify bridges and other structures.
Therefore: this outcome was obvious.
Portland’s eleven Willamette River bridges, from left to right: St. John’s, Burlington Northern Railroad 5.1, Fremont, Broadway, Steel, Burnside, Morrison, Hawthorne, Marquam, Ross Island, and Sellwood.
