Toronto 'T-Dot' Vintage Art Print

T-O, TeRawna, The 416, The Big Smoke, and Hog Town, are among many terms commonly associated with Canada's largest city. Kardinal Offishal and other local rappers in the 90s/2000s introduced the term 'T-dot' in lyrics and soon this too was added to the vernacular of Torontonians.

The Inspiration behind our T-Dot Art Print

As a kid born in Toronto, we used many of these nicknames (and a few more less complimentary versions). One night while visiting Toronto I watched the lights on the CN Tower cascade up to the tip and I thought of the nickname. It inspired this vintage print that features Toronto's official colour scheme and a photo illustration of the CN Tower within a design influenced by Lester Beal, a favourite artist of mine.
