as I related to a fellow urban sketcher today, I enjoy posting my drawings to flickr but I get lazy with my blog posts. I am now going to attempt to catch you up with my urban drawing adventures.
I joined the Friday adhoc group of USk folks at Seattle Center on this day. I think the main attraction was a Cherry Blossom Festival but I set out this morning wanting to draw the outside of the EMP museum.
We got cheap nosebleed seats at a Seattle Mariners vs Baltimore Orioles game from ThreeDollar Bill Cinema on Arts Night. It was a little chilly and not many folks out but we did score free t-shirts and tote bags! Oh and this sketch of course....
Every year we go out to the Good Shepherd Center for the Seattle Tilth Edible Plant Sale. It's very festival like in that we get wrist bands for time slots, wait in line and then people stream in. I only made time for a short sketch but it was my first ever at this event.
Tried to draw this fun little place on a sunny Monday morning but it was closed so I got lucky with a sunny Tuesday morning. Little Uncle Asian is a small walk up food place on Madison @ 15th on Capitol Hill, I was initially drawn to it because I saw a couple eating in the wee dugout space to the right of the kitchen. It's an awesome use of a tight space and even better because because it's next to the Bullitt Bldg !
Which brings us to today, where I met with the adhoc group in Fremont, Seattle, WA. The general theme of the day was the quirky landmarks in the "center of the universe" I think this qualifies as a quirky landmark...The Fremont Rocket @ N35th & Evanston.
