Watch “Portland Noir”

As you may remember, over the summer I did a few illustrations for an Oregon Public Broadcasting program about Portland, Oregon’s dark past. Now you can watch the half-hour special, Portland Noir, in its entirety online. The program discusses 1880s Portland’s open vice, crime syndicates, and the city’s reputation for violence and lawlessness.

“From shanghaied sailors to opium dens, Portland’s illicit past is legendary. But how much of it is true? Portland Noir examines Old Town’s sordid history.”
