Welcome to USk Seattle


The first time I went out to sketch in Seattle with other folks was in March of 2008. It was one of the global sketchcrawl days and we went to the Olympic Sculpture Park, where I drew this view. I had a blast.

Since launching Urban Sketchers last year I've been thinking that something important was missing from the original idea. Then I realized what it was. The main blog brings people from far away places together, but it doesn't necessarily connect the ones who are actually closer to each other, living in the same city. That's the reason behind starting this blog and perhaps others like it for other cities. With USk Seattle I'm looking forward to continue the friendship started back in March of 2008 with fellow local sketchers and to meet new ones in the future.

There are not many rules. Post your location drawings, share your thoughts on the ones posted, and let the group know if you're going out to sketch in case somebody else wants to come along. Let's just have fun with it.


  1. ...Another great idea and work Gabi :-)

    ps- Tenho a impressão que aqui em Portugal, a fazermos um Blog deste género, teria que ser de nível Nacional...O meu país é tão pequeno que nós tanto desenhamos numa semana, paisagens de Lisboa como noutro dia do Alentejo e na semana a seguir, o Norte do país :-)

    Cheers and good work!

  2. Great idea for the blog. You can scratch the Olympic Sculpture Park of the list I sent you as obviously you've already been there, done that...your first sketch in Seattle too! Looking forward to seeing more sketches of Seattle. BTW- how do you get the sketch from paper to blog? I assume you simply scan it, but just thought I'd ask.
