Portland-based S. Britt is one of those illustrators whose work I feel I literally grew up with. His work has always epitomized to me that particular Seattle grungy hipster aesthetic. Britt’s sardonic humor, wrapped in its retro style, still manages to happily send me off to a time when I did nothing but fantasize about how cool everyone in Seattle must obviously be as the denizens of the coolest music scene around.
