Gabitown




Yun and I recently went to Seattle for a little vacation. Of course, if one is in Seattle, one must contact Gabi Campanario. He set up a day for me to draw with sketchers from Seattle. Over 30 showed up. We met at a place called the Ballard Locks. The funny thing about the whole episode is that nothing happens unless Gabi is there. He is the ringleader, the principal and the master of ceremonies. Gabi was a little late but no one does anything until he comes. We all just stood around. When he shows up, he starts barking out commands and everyone listens intently. Then everyone springs into action and starts drawing. I truly believe if Gabi was an hour or 2 late, we all would have sat there waiting. I love that about him. He's very charismatic and the perfect leader of the Urban Sketchers movement. There were many very talented people who showed up to sketch. My good friends Steve Reddy and Jackie Helfgott, just to name a few. Also I bought a few tiny cards of birds in a secondhand store in Portland. I glued them in because I thought it looked cool.

Being only 4 hours east, had I caught the notice, I think I would have driven over to join in. What great fun! Maybe next time.

We need something spur-of-the-art like this in our community. Maybe I'm in charge of it. You inspire me.

Thanks for coming to Gabitown! It was thrilling to meet the man behind the blog! And since I started sketching, I get it now -- better than crack!
