Otherworldly Places

Traveling through the red room-Seattle Public LibraryThe Red Hall of the 4th floor of the Seattle Public Library is a transitory and illusory place for me. The aesthetic of this place, so purposefully artistic, succeeds in taking my psyche to another world and confounds and delights my senses. It’s like a portal between dimensions.

My writer friends and I were discussing pros and cons of fictional fantasy worlds tonight.

Do you prefer a book that is written in an earth-like world with a few otherworldly characters or a world with alien parameters and characters that fit only within that world?

The Sketchbook Project Tour 2014 – Seattle Tour Stop

I and a few of my friends have joined others around the world to share our artwork through The Sketchbook Project and their annual traveling art library tour. In addition to bringing the year’s books to a city near you, many of the books are now available in the Digital Library including my latest, NORTHWEST winter TEXTURES.

Here’s a sampling of the books, friends, events, scene and flavor of the Tour’s stop at Seattle Public Library on Saturday, July 12th.

You can participate by getting, filling and returning a sketchbook for the 2015 Tour. CLICK HERE FOR INFO

You can also find more on a Facebook page by my friends and I that includes ours and others’ sketchbooks from the last few years, SnoBoots Sketchcats. ¬†Enjoy!

Breathing Space – July 13/14

From a bird’s eye view to a view of a bird’s eye–We descended from the Columbia Tower all the way to the Seattle waterfront where this fine fellow sat below our open window as we dined at the water’s edge.
