On Track

Scouting for a future Seattle USk outing, Kate, Michele, Feather and I met up at Sound Transit Light Rail’s new UW Station this morning. It was a lot colder and wetter than was predicted, so my sketch of the station (and Husky Stadium behind it) got cut short, but I’m posting it here anyway (at right) for posterity.

After we rode the rails to Capitol Hill Station, also brand new, and warmed up over lunch, the day had warmed up a bit too, so I sketched the station entrance (above). It’s marked by a huge graphic hand – artwork by local cartoonist and Capitol Hill resident Ellen Forney.

The rest of my sketches for the day were small vignettes made in my red Field Notes and a small accordion-folded book that Michele made and gave to each of us to document today’s “Hop Sketch” (coined by Michele).

Stay tuned for more sketches at these stations during a future USk outing – to be scheduled on a warmer day!

Nothing unusual to report.
Warming up at Oddfellows!
