ADAM HAYNES, Our Favorite Neighbor

Stickfort_AdamHaynesWhen deciding who to collaborate with on a very special project for the 100 year anniversary of the National Park Service, we didn’t have to look far. Bend, Oregon, just to the east of our HQ in Lake Oswego is where artist Adam Haynes resides, but his presence reaches far beyond that. The freelance illustrator who also can be found under the handle of @stickfort and stickfort.com, Adam fits the mold when considering not only his work but interests as well. He’s a family man who can also be found wrenching on his Toyota Landcruiser, fly fishing, and snowboarding .

Party Favors

You could score some awesome art, sweet stickers and maybe – just maybe – one of the Centennial ShowCases.

  • Each day’s favorite pic earned a signed Adam Haynes National Park poster with the artwork he created for us, plus a sticker pack.
  • Daily runners up got a sticker pack.
  • Each daily winner was entered in the weekly drawing for the Centennial ShowCase 15.
