I just realized the other day that this blog hit its 6-month mark a couple of weeks ago. My first post here was on April 14 and I showed you a view of the construction in South Lake Union that I had sketched in February (left inset).
Today I’m showing you an updated view (above). The construction of the Amazon new offices is well underway. Now you can only get a peek-a-boo view of Lake Union from where I was standing to sketch this afternoon.
As I look ahead to the next six months, one thing in my mind is to get some new fingerless gloves because it’s going to be cold to sketch outdoors. But, what’s more important, I’m curious to know your thoughts about the blog. What do you think of the sketcher as a newspaper feature? It’s something pretty different from other newspaper stories. It’s an illustrated journal of life in Seattle, where I moved three years ago. Sometimes I draw and write about newsy stuff, like light rail, other times I’m curious about the history behind the city’s architecture, or meet interesting Seattleites doing cool things that I want to record in my sketchbooks. It’s life in Seattle as I see it and draw it.
So, please, drop me a line and let me know what you think. I reply to all emails from readers even if it takes me several days. If you don’t get a reply from me, send it again, I will promise not to overlook your message again. And remember you can also follow me via Twitter and Facebook.
Thanks for stopping by.
