Chief Seattle

6/12/19 bust of Chief Seattle

It’s been several years since I sketched the bronze bust of Chief Seattle in Pioneer Square. His image appears in various forms and places in the city, including a modern one that simultaneously portrays George Washington’s image.

Wandering on the Seattle University campus last week, I came upon this bust of the Suquamish chief and city namesake that I didn’t know about. Fully in shade as I sketched, I still felt the heat creeping up on me on the day that would be the beginning of our mercifully brief heatwave.
