altered states

"california"
"colorado"

"The States is an ongoing personal project meant to be an exploration of form. The rules are simple: take the silhouette of a US state, and fit something inside of it."

~illustrator Frank Chimero.

"wyoming"
while the images used don't always reflect the culture of each state, Chimero likes to throw in a little visual reference here and there.
"kansas"
"idaho"
he also makes really cool gig and inspirational posters among other great prints, like this one:
to see if your state made the cut or to buy a print *go here*
