As this is my last article of the quarter, I have decided to return to the heart of what my column aims to do. The idea of gathering, be it around people, food, space, or activity is something that can be seen all around campus and it’s a theme I try to subtly include in many of my sketches.
Autumn is one of the rare opportunities I have as a Seattle artist to use colors other than gray, deep blue, and forest green. As we move into winter, there is the temptation to limit my palette and sketchbook to drawings of architecture with muted colors and black ink. However, this week I …
The Brockman Memorial Campus Tree Tour has taken over my life. Whenever I pass an interesting tree on campus, I pull out my phone and look up its name and species and make a note of it for later. Over the last week and a half, I have sketched a Cedar of Lebanon, my favorite Yoshino cherry tr…

I think it has become obvious to all of us just how beautiful the deciduous trees have become on campus. The vibrant hues of gold, orange, and crimson bring a feeling of warmth to the chilling air. Seeing these colors swirl around as the wind blows leaves from the branches is probably one of…

This past Friday, I attended the Youth Climate Strike and the Amazon workers’ climate strike and did some sketching of the protest, march, and speeches. My new pocket sketchbook, favorite pen, and field watercolor palette were put to good use.

The last week I have been working on the last mainstage show for the School of Drama, “The Learned Ladies.” A Moliere farce, this play is chock full of wacky characters, farcical humor, and lines that all end in rhyming couplets. This is the second time I’ve drawn a set in the Penthouse Thea…
Homelessness impacts much more than just a select few. Whether it’s having to live next to I-5 to students couch-surfing and using the UW Food Pantry, many have experienced housing and food insecurity and homelessness in our community.
