The Ban Roll-on Building

10/16/14 Platinum Carbon ink, watercolor, Canson XL paper
Safeco Center, affectionately known by locals as the “Ban Roll-on building” and the “R2-D2 building,” was on my list of downtown Seattle architecture that I really like and intend to sketch someday. An errand downtown this morning put me in the neighborhood of the former Washington Mutual Tower across the street, where I had a somewhat good view of R2-D2 from the lobby windows. I couldn’t see as much of the roll-on ball as I wanted to, though, so it’s going to stay on my list until I find another vantage point to sketch it, perhaps from up the hill.
