Greetings from Seattle, I am Gail Wong a long time Seattle Urban Sketcher. Though I have taught sketching and architectural drawing with Frank Ching for years, I really didn't get to sketch for my own pleasure until Gabi started Urban Sketchers in Seattle (I think it was either 2008 or 2009). Of course once you catch the sketching bug you can't stop! I am one of the coordinators for Seattle Urban Sketchers and a committee member of Urban Sketchers Workshops. It has been great fun being involved in Urban Sketchers and has really transformed my life. What I find amazing is how powerful hand drawings are and how they move people.
This will be my first Symposium and I am coming as a student to learn and get inspired by all of you.
I look forward to meeting everyone with whom I have been corresponding over the flickr and facebook and following on the blogs. Below are some sketches done over the years that depict Seattle in the summer. The only time it rarely rains! See you in Barcelona!
