Buffalo-based Hero Design Studio creates and screenprints tons of show posters, but I’m rather partial to the prints, greeting cards and fashion that celebrate the city of Buffalo.
We might have ended up in Buffalo a few years ago; instead, we landed in Cincinnati, and I’m a bit curious about the life that might have been. Maybe we would have become friends with this husband-and-wife team? Or, would we have started making Buffalo-based work and become their fierce competitors? We’ll never know.
This is a print of Mark Twain’s house in Buffalo, where he lived for a couple of years. Like Abraham Lincoln and Jack London, Twain seems to have lived all over the US, and many cities claim a connection. It’s a pretty house; I love the mansard roof and the wonky perspective of the illustration.
