He moved there in 1941 and worked with Harry Gottlieb, Elizabeth Olds, Harry Shokler and others. "Hall of Fame" was inspired by a trip to Sweden and Norway and the stylized iconography relates to early Celtic petroglyphs.

Landon was very active with the National Serigraph Society and later served as the Society's president. Landon was always intrigued by surrealism and this print is both humorous and intriguing. The maze traps the hapless visitor in a world dominated by gaudy Victorian wallpaper.
