|1/12/18 Seattle USk Gab & Grab at the Northeast library branch|
For the fifth year, Seattle USk held its annual Gab & Grab today – an opportunity for an informal show-and-tell of our favorite sketch supplies and a place to share books and materials we are no longer using. Our tradition is to do it early in the year to perk up the post-holiday doldrums when it’s too wet and cold to sketch outdoors. Usually held in the meeting room of public libraries, it’s fun and well-attended.
Earlier this week as I was pulling together supplies to give away, I was trying to recall how many times we’ve done it, and I realized I’ve been remiss in documenting this popular event. I don’t have a single blog post about it and apparently took only a few photos. Even more shocking – I’ve never sketched at one! Whaaaat?!
To correct that omission, I decided I would document this year’s event with sketches. The photos below are from 2014, our very first Gab & Grab.
