|6/21/19 Safeco Center|
Officially named Safeco Center, one of my favorite downtown buildings is better known as the Ban Roll-on building or the R2-D2 building (and formerly named the Second & Seneca Building). I wish I knew someone who worked there so I could go up to the glassy dome on top. The last time I sketched it was nearly five years ago from an angle that didn’t show its roll-on ball much, so I’ve always wanted to try again. In the area yesterday with USk Seattle, I sat next to a spitting fountain to make this sketch.
Thoroughly chilled after that, I retreated to the inside of the building I had just sketched because I knew it had a Starbucks that faced the street. Luckily for me, a lot of work was going on across the street involving cherry pickers in blue and orange.

Although it’s officially summer now, I still wore the hood on my Polartec jacket all morning. As is often the case, the sun finally came out in time for the throwdown. (I suppose if we were smart, we would meet in the afternoon!)
