Sequoia or Seuss?

4/12/16 colored pencils, inks, watercolor
Here’s a tree I spotted in my own ‘hood only a few blocks from home. Asymmetrical as any tree mangled by the utilities, this one’s odd shape can’t be blamed on power lines – it seems to grow this way. It looks like it’s straight out of Dr. Seuss. After much Googling for images, I’m guessing that it must be a weeping sequoia (anyone know for sure?). A couple of years ago I sketched a much larger one at the Point Defiance Rose Garden that looked even stranger.
