“Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful great city left in the world.” – Frank Lloyd Wright
Vintage Travel Posters for our dystopian future!

I live in Chicago. And it hurts us when every movie destroys New York City and Los Angeles, and we just sit here ignored. No longer! I have seen a vision of the future, when our artificial intelligence rebels against us and destroys our world, one city at a time. And sure, it starts with the city that I just happen to know the building details of so it was easier to draw…

A few years ago I actually wrote down the idea for this poster. Something like ‘giant robots destroying cities that don’t get destroyed often enough in movies’. So this has been lingering in my head for a while. While I know Chicago serves as Man of Steel‘s Metropolis, and was also destroyed in a Transformers movie (meh), I wanted to create some giant robots of my own and have them throw some buildings around.

My original title was just “The Uprising” but I figured adding “The Ruins of Chicago” is better for clarification. I would LOVE to tackle some other cities, especially ones that aren’t normally destroyed in TV or movies. But in order to continue this series, this Chicago print has to be a success because this damn thing took forever to draw. Not the most complicated print ever (that still goes to my Desk of Q print), but pretty intense. So if this is popular or you guys dig it, maybe I’ll destroy some more cities. Let me know!

This soft pillow is an excellent addition that gives character to any space. It comes with a soft polyester insert that will retain its shape after many uses, and the pillow case can be easily machine washed.
