The Seattle Sketcher

An illustrated journal of life in the Puget Sound region by Times artist Gabriel Campanario.

Goodbye Galaxy Gold, hello Forest Green

It wasn’t meant to be. The Space Needle will not don its retro Galaxy Gold color for its next paint job, as I wished.

Workers have been painting the top of the Needle with its new green color for a few days now. This afternoon, I could only see a patch of the bright orange left, so I rushed to do a sketch from the parking lot roof of a building in South Lake Union. (Note: I walked there, don’t go thinking I drive that Mercedes on the sketch.)

Seattle graphic designer Nicole Commins won the art contest organized by the Needle to find a replacement for Galaxy Gold. The new paint job consists of evergreens radiating towards the Needle’s center spire. It will stay for six months, and you can see it here.
