The Fremont Troll

A sketching trip back to the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. One of my favorite sites in town is the Troll that lives under the Aurora Bridge. Amazing how many people stopped by here while we were sketching. It's also amazing how stupid people get while climbing around and on top of this 20'-25' sculpture. I watched a dad encourage his child to get closer to the edge of the top of the forehead so he can get a better picture......

The Fremont Rocket

This rocket used to adorn the front of an Army/Navy surplus store in Belltown. When announced that it was coming down and headed for the trash heap, business leaders in Fremont made arrangements for the "center of the known universe" to be its new home. It sat for some time till it was installed ('94) on the front of what is now a ladies boutique.

Sketching Lenin in Fremont

The Fremont District is one of my favorite Seattle sketch destinations. This quirky arts neighborhood has everything from old soviet statues to marine subjects on the Montlake Cut.
