Calling all Old-Schoolers, Past Portlanders, and Collectors of Antiquities!
I'm currently writing/drawing a comic set in 1977 Portland, and I want it to look and feel like that era. Unfortunately, I was just a glimmer in my daddy's eye at that time, so I don't have much in the way of reference photos. There's always random photos to be found on the Internets, but I'm looking for something more personal...
If you have any pics of Portland during the height of Blazermania, I'm into it. I'm talking about anything at all. Random shots of you wearing Blazers gear, the parade, your dad freaking out in front of the television--anything. I'm interested not only in seeing your rad vintage Blazers duds, but 70s fashion in general, as well as good pictures of the city itself. So much has changed since '77, and I really want this comic to reflect the Portland that was, rather than just a generic city filled with people in bellbottoms and huge lapels, sporting chest hair and afros.
So help me out, Bedgers. I know y'all have some gems tucked away, so let's see what you've got. I'm all about giving credit where credit is due, so if your photos make the cut, you can expect a nod in the "Special Thanks" section. For seriously awesome contributions, I'd be glad to hook up a copy of the finished product that should be out by late spring.
Thanks in advance, folks.
