The Space Needle Turns 50

5/26/12, Copic Multiliner SP pen, watercolor
I was almost four years old when my family went to Century 21, the Seattle World’s Fair, in 1962. I remember very little about that Fair – only a yellow plastic lei I received at the Hawaii pavilion (I guess?) and a plastic pen shaped like the Space Needle. I don’t remember seeing the actual Space Needle at all, though I’m sure I must have. The Space Needle is celebrating its 50th birthday this year, so here’s my birthday portrait, sketched from Gasworks Park.
