So Ugly It’s Ugly

11/18/14 various inks, Caran d'Ache Museum water-soluble
colored pencils, Zig markers, Canson XL 140 lb. paper
A while back the Urban Sketchers Flickr group theme was “So Ugly It’s Beautiful.” Several candidates had come to mind besides the one I ended up sketching then – an electrical substation in my neighborhood. This morning after an errand in north Seattle, I took the opportunity to sketch another candidate high on my list – these twin cell towers on Aurora Avenue North. A nearby Home Depot parking lot gave me a suitable view of these ubiquitous towers that are somehow even more unattractive than standard utility poles.

  1. I must say those towers are U G L Y....the towers themselves, not your sketch of them.
