Portlandia Guest Tweets

  • Share on Tumblr

I was picked to run the Twitter account for IFC’s hilarious sketch comedy show Portlandia, for a week! My guest tweets ran from Jan 11th – 17th. I got to run some arts & crafts contests and asked the natives about Portland. My wife helped me think up some of these fun projects and we got to give DVDs to the winners. It was a great opportunity to bond with the fans of such a creative show. IFC extended this Portlandia Co-op project to guest tweeters during the run of their third season.

My highlight of the week was when Carrie Brownstein responded to one of my questions. I also received word that Fred Armisen enjoyed the arts & crafts contests. Everyone behind Portlandia’s Twitter account was very supportive of this project, the people at IFC, Fred & Carrie, and the awesome Jenny McCoy, who usually runs the account. They even gave me a bike as a gift for tweeting!

As part of the Portlandia Twitter fun I posted sketches of my favorite characters all week. Here is my colored illustration of “We Can Pickle That”, one of their catchy skits in the vein of “Put A Bird On It”.
