Inside the “green room” at KING 5

Sketched Feb. 21, 2012
I was recently a guest on Margaret Larson’s morning TV show New Day Northwest, which airs on King 5 at 11 a.m. every weekday.
The reason for the appearance was to talk about my book, The Art of Urban Sketching, which was just published by Quarry Books last month. Joining me on the set was one of the book contributors, Gail Wong, a local architect, teacher and coordinator of the Seattle Urban Sketchers group. Other local urban sketchers joined the audience and sketched during the show.
Unlike I did on a previous New Day Northwest appearance, where I sketched during the interview, this time I only opened my sketchbook while waiting in the “green room.” That’s what TV and showbiz folks call the space where guests and performers wait before being on stage. The name apparently derives from the color usually chosen for these rooms in the past, according to Wikipedia.
In my green room sketch, you may recognize KING 5 news anchor Dennis Bounds, who appeared on the show to promote the 14th Annual Microsoft Hockey Challenge, a fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The pocket sketchbook always comes in handy during wait times.
