Thanksgiving 2011

 This is at our house before Thanksgiving Dinner
We had a very nice family gathering at my sister and brother in laws house.
Marcus was showing me his new Telecaster and he was channeling Jimi.

Talking to Sophie

Video chatting via Skype makes it seem like loved ones are so much closer than they are.

Practicing faces

South Park

Eddie and Richard Bruno grew up in South Park in the thirties and forties.  Eddie tells lots of stories of everything from his childhood.  One time the neighbors cow walked on top of their underground fort the dug out and the roof caved in trapping the cow.   The cow was unharmed but the neighbor didn't know how the hole got there.

JM Cellars in Woodinville

The Seattle Urban Sketchers went to JM Cellars ( a local winery) for their berry processing.
They also had a photographer and videographer documenting the event.
I love the smell of grapes, it reminds me of when I had my vine and would harvest while listening to the World Series on the radio.

Last Saturday was the Wayzgoose Steamroller Smackdown held at the School of Visual Concepts.
Different teams competed by designing and producing printed posters with the help of a Steamroller.
It was quite dramatic!

Waiting at the Apple Store

I did this while waiting.

Face time

I have been trying to improve my facial sketching skills and have been using an old newspaper to practice on.

La Isla, Market Street, Ballard

This is from a very nice Caribbean Restaurant on Market Street in Ballard (Seattle)
I got a little frustrated with this and it started to get too busy and muddy.
I guess it does convey how much more lively Ballard is than it was many years ago.

Nibble on Dibble
