Dumpsters and Tiny Car on Terry & Thomas

Showed up late to sketchcrawl after running the See Jane Run 1/2 marathon at Lake Union. While I was wandering around looking for some of the other sketchers I stumbled across this cute little car and dumpsters on Terry and Thomas. It started to rain pretty hard as soon as I sat down to draw. A security guard came by and said if he didnt think his girlfriend would get mad, he'd give me his umbrella. I assured him I was OK and that I hadnt had an umbrella for about twenty years but didnt last much longer and packed up when I realized my paper was getting so wet it was about to rip and went inside to finish from a photo in Zokas. I noticed the little car was gone as soon as I came back outside so just as well. Fun sketchcrawl sitting there in rain, shorts, and wet clothes with sketch full of inky raindrops.
