Chris and I went to Portland this past Saturday through Tuesday. It was an amazing trip to visit an amazing friend. Meg Hunt was our awesome host while we were there - taking us to eat all the great food and introducing us to some of the gems of the city.
I wish I had taken more pictures when we were actually in the city, but hey, I was having too much fun.
It was an awesome trip filled with adventure and food! The first night we got there was slow - as I had jumped on the plane right after having taught a licensing class at MCAD that same morning. Sunday was fantastic. Chris and I headed to Ecola National Park. We drove for an hour and a half and ended up finding an amazing view and some serene places. Here are some of the pictures we took while we were there!
Here are the rest of the pictures!
When we got back, we met up with Meg and had coffee at a cute spot near her neighborhood, and prepared for the next day.
Monday was amazing! I had come out to Portland on a mission - to guest speak in Meg's PNCA illustration class. Her students were awesome and really wonderful to work with and we made a series of patterns in a big friendly group, ate doughnuts that Meg brought for us, and laughed together at all the ridiculous things that were going on. It was a blast!
We were lucky enough to meet up with Roxy, one of our great friends who recently moved to Portland for an amazing internship at a local comic studio, and spent the rest of the night relaxing, eating, and having a grand old time at one of Meg's favorite restaurants & then with her friend Patrick at a coffee house.
In the morning, we met one last time for biscuits and gravy, walked around and said our sad goodbyes. It was too darn short. Until next time, Portland. Next time.
