Two sketches from SAM:Everyone that passed this huge metal cloak would go peek inside it. Or take a closeup picture of the thousands of dogtags that made up the cloak. I loved the huge rat in the background. It’s about 1.5 times the size of a human, and sits atop a life size sleeping human figure.

The kids got museumed-out so I took them to the “kid area” where they could play with puzzles and generally be loud. They played, I sketched the view out of  a very narrow window.

This ballon guy had a different colored beard every day. he explained that he could collect a donation for a balloon, but not sell it to you. And he could only keep his spot for one hour. After that he had to give it up to any other artist or musician who wanted the spot. it all seemed very complicated. I could have sketched at Pike Place all week and not been done!

It rained on our last day in seattle so we went to the aquarium. this is the view from the cafeteria. the red of the cranes really stood out on a hazy, rainy day.

These 3 sketches are from the Flight Museum. Hari and the kids went around and looked at all the exhibits,I sat in the room of old planes, never looked at the rest of the museum and sketched…

    Your drawings are awesome. They convey a lot, and I felt like traveling a little with you as I watched them. Your airplanes drawings are so neat, they remind me of the Hugo Pratt’s drawings (he was a fabulous Italian writer and illustrator).
