What's with STC-LANDIA?

One of our favorite satirical  comedy television series is set and filmed in Portland. The show is called Portlandia and gently pokes fun at the quirkiness of our city. We thought it would be great to incorporate that sense of fun into this year's artwork for the STC directors meeting. Thus the name STC-LANDIA. We hope you like it.
