Yun had business in Seattle. She suggested I come along. In fact, I went a few days early to hang with my nephews who live there. They went to school during the day, so I had plenty of free time to draw and look at stuff. This sketch I did at Ballard docks where all the fishing boats tie up. The sky was this constant moody threat of rain which made for amazing cloud action. I did my own, over the top version of the clouds to enhance how beautiful it was. One day I drove up to a town called Anacortes. It's about 2 hours from Seattle. Then I took the ferry to the San Juan Islands. From there, I went on a whale watching boat to encounter orcas. It turned out to be a great day for seeing them. I was smart enough to shoot video of the day. I put together a short 2 minute film of my trip. I will post it here next. I suggest you watch it. It's very National Geographic.
