Mountains Are Awesome! - Aug. 2012

For his retro poster series "Major Peaks of The Cascade Range", Illustrator Mitch Frey drew inspiration from the WPA national park posters and travel advertisements of the 1930s-1940s.  "I've really enjoyed this project" wrote Frey. "Since these are a few of my favorite mountains in the Pacific Northwest.  Having grown up here, I've had the extraordinary opportunity to play on and around these great wonders."
