The weekly theme for Urban Sketchers is ” Worldwide Retail (IKEA and Starbucks)”. Since I don’t like Starbucks coffee (shhhh, it’s unpatriotic in Seattle!), I went to Ikea, which is just down the hill from home.
I sat in the cafeteria to sketch this business meeting.
This is a better representation of Ikea, though. Here in the USA, they use a car like this in their commercials. At the store, it is a display in an open area of the parking garage
It seems fitting to also mention this, given the worldwide theme. I received a comment on my blog from someone who had just found Urban Sketchers… “I got to know urban sketcher recently, and I just jumped in like you! I made my own sketching kit this noon and I’m waiting for the sprayed paint to dry now. Then, saw your blog!… I ordered Cathy Johnson’s book last week, and read the book ’artist illustration‘, and also ”urban sketching”. …happy to know you”
From what I could figure out, he is in Taiwan! Just goes to show what a small world this is and how we connect with each other via this group. I’m glad I’m here.
