Out and about ...

I was bummed to miss today's ad hoc sketch outing and this month's sketchcrawl and struggling to find time with my work schedule I have been multitasking getting sketches in when I can while out and about. Here are a couple from some recent events I attended...

Damien Echols presentation at Town Hall Seattle September 28th, 2012
Damian Echols, author of Life After Death, of the Memphis III who spent 18 years on death row spoke at the Town Hall Seattle (with KIRO Radio's Luke Burbank and Innocence Project attorney Kelly Canary). I have never thought to ask a sketch subject to sign a sketch, but since I was standing in line to ask Echols to sign my book I thought it would be fun to ask him to sign my sketch. Very interesting talk. I'm looking forward to reading his book.

Geoffrey Castle Concert in Snohomish Tim Noah Thumbnail Theater September 15th, 2012
I discovered Geoffrey Castle on my very first outing with the Seattle Urban Sketchers thanks to Gail who organized a sketch event at one of his concerts. He is an incedible electric violinist who plays a fascinatingly eclectic mix of fiddle, classical, and metal electric violin. I decided to go to his concert in Snohomish on my  birthday at a cute little venue in Snohomish. Geoffrey Castle rocks! Thanks Urban Sketchers for introducing me to him. I am now one of his biggest fans and this is my second attempt to sketch him in action which is no small feat given how fast he moves!

  1. I love the idea of the autograph, Jackie. It adds to the story. I agree with you about being introduced to new people and places. It's definitely a perk. Fun sketches!
