The United Plates by Shorthanded Studio

John Wayne Holcomb, a.k.a. Shorthanded Studio, is a Topeka-based illustrator who recently completed The United Plates, a series of screenprinted posters depiciting each state as a dish. This series is similar to a project by Frank Chimero is that the content of each state is only related to the state based on shape. I think it’s hilarious that Indiana is a neat pile of asparagus, Idaho a lopsided ice cream sundae, etc.

  2. These are hilarious but, if you look at the site now, it seems as though all the images have been redrawn and, in some cases, substantially changed. I think I actually prefer the older versions pictured here.
