Look what I found! An article on my drawing hero, Gabriel Campanario, The Seattle Sketcher. He is an illustrator and journalist for the The Seattle Times. Below is an image of his sketchbook page. The blog that hosted this article is called deux dilettenties. It specializes in all things from Seattle and they interviewed Gabriel on March 21, 2013.
I am especially appreciating this quote by him in the article, “He looked surprised when we asked him about his style. Marking a pause, as if thinking about it, he finally answered, “I’m impatient. That’s why I draw fast, working around simple and spontaneous lines.” The drawing is not meant to be displayed on a wall; it’s a snapshot of a moment, perfect in its imperfections. “Sometimes the challenge is, how much can you tell with the minimum amount of lines?” How about that “perfect in its imperfections”!
Below is one of his awesome sketches found on his blog on March 22nd. This article “You Can’t Spell P-Patch Without Picardo“ is about Seattle’s first community garden established in 1973. His sketch images help me feel like I am right in the picture with him. His stories and their locations come alive with his images. Check out his work!
