It’s Urban Couch Season Again

2/2/16 ink, colored pencils, Zig marker
Usually I can spot abandoned couches during the last or first few days of the month when tenants are moving out. Right on cue, this one was left out on a street corner on Feb. 1, but by the time I saw it, the light was fading. The broken, cushionless chair was still there yesterday, so I dashed off a quick sketch. Despite the chill, the sun made a welcome appearance on Ground Hog’s Day, so I suppose I could have gone looking for more attractive subject matter. But at this time of year on the rare days when I can go outdoors to sketch at all, I’m not very picky.


  1. Love the shadows you caught! I guess the end of the month does bring movers. lol

  2. Wow...looks like spring in Seattle land. Lucky you.

    1. It was very short-lived (like one afternoon) -- we're back to our regularly scheduled programming of winter. ;-)
