Amazon Spheres, Take 2

7/14/16 inks, colored pencils
The last time I sketched the Amazon spheres, I stood on the Seventh Avenue side of Lenora Street. The balls’ amoeba-like skeletal structure was still entirely exposed. This morning, two-and-a-half months later, I chose the Sixth Avenue side where I could stand a bit closer. Though still visible, the skeleton is now almost completely covered with a glass skin, and a few workers were way up at the top installing the last of it. 

Above them was one of the ubiquitous cranes towering over the north downtown/South Lake Union area.


  1. Great sketch! I'll have to get your advice on where to meet up for our sketching outing to them at end of the month.

  2. These are odd structures. I like the view with the crane behind them.
