Life-sized fun

I visited the Seattle Museum of History and Industry, christianed MOHAI locally,

Gabriel Campriano's sketch of the museum

and bought membership too, because I know I'll want to revisit and take visitors to the exhibit of the Seattle Sketcher, Gabe Campriano. Gabe, who also started the Urban Sketchers group and edited The Art of Urban Sketching which I blogged previously about, has become Seattle area's Pretty Official visual documenter of all things Puget Sound....

The exhibit is bright, colorful, airy, with walls and walls and nooks and crannies filled with pages from his sketchbook...

including several "life-sized" enlarged versions.

This wall greets the visitor.

 I'm imagining this is a favorite, a view of the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat. 

And sketchbooks from other urban sketchers are also on display. 

It is an awesome display of sketching talent and will be at the museum to mid-May. (Alas and alack, Fraser's chair is now gone, along with the other Seattle in Media goodies. Can't have everything.) 

Read more about it in the Seattle Times article below.
