Medicine Hat pennants

Some people collect spoons, postcards, street signs or other items from their hometown. Me? I've been collecting for the last few years these sometimes satin, but more often than not, felt pennants from Medicine Hat, Alberta- my hometown. Utilizing everything from crudely Native American imagery to the day-glow fauna to represent the city has always struck me bizarre and yet intriguing.  The typographic solutions vary and some are repeated, but combined with the silk screened images they represent to me that far off magical place where I was born.
