Funny faces light up University Link construction site

Sketched April 19, 2:51 p.m.
More than 1,500 oversized photo-booth snapshots grace the yellow and purple construction wall by Husky Stadium. They show people sticking their tongues out, laughing, kissing and making every funny expression you could imagine. Some look a bit serious too, but those are the exception.
The Great Wall of Us represents folks like you and me who will come here by light rail when the University Link station opens in 2016. Construction started in 2009 and, judging by the activity at the giant pit behind the wall, it looks to me that they’ve made a lot of progress.
I look forward to sketching the real faces behind these photos when light rail arrives to the University of Washington. (See past sketches of rail commuters here.)
