Grace, 21, Illustration Major @ PNCA.
Yoooo, I like loud music and digital illustration and pepperoni pizza and hiking. I want to be a storyboard artist one day, preferably for Laika Studios or Cartoon Network or Dreamworks.
I don't like people who think they're better than others. I don't like people who are unwilling to seek happiness. There will be no pity parties on this boat, not while I'm captain. Chin up--you have people to prove wrong. Besides, life is infinitely better once you learn how to love yourself. 10/10 would recommend.
I post humor, art, music, and fandom stuff. My usual fandoms are Teen Wolf, Star Trek, Percy Jackson, LOTR, Gravity Falls, Adventure Time, some Supernatural, and others. They are many and fleeting--you've been warned.
Powell’s Books, Portland, Oregon.
Located on Burnside Ave in the Pearl District of Portland, Powell’s City of Books takes up an entire city block, and then some. The store itself is made up of three floors, with nine rooms that are each assigned a color and category of books. Getting lost inside is easier than you’d think, and happens often—often enough, at least, for them to have an iPhone and Android app that will act as a map.
There are several other locations of smaller Powell’s stores, but the one in the Pearl is the spot you have to see before you die. You can walk for an hour and still find a corner you haven’t been in yet. Not to mention the coffee shop, the art gallery, and the Rare Books room that’s open on weekends.
